I don't even know how far along in the process I am for realsies, but here is a picture of the baby blanket I'm making for Jen -

Cut for size )

Becca told me to get 3 skeins of yarn but that I wouldn't need all of them? And I just started the 2nd skein last weekend. So I think I'm doing pretty well - I mean, Jen's not due until March, which means I've got time. The bottom of the blanket makes it perfectly obvious that I'm a novice knitter to anyone with an eye for these things (when I showed it to Mom when she visited in October - "Oh, very...you messed up the pattern here, you realize that?" "Yes, Mother, perfectly aware, thanks." "Just making sure. Nice, otherwise."), but I think my second blanket will be much prettier.

Since I'm more or less on schedule, and Andrea's not due until April anyway, I might try my hand at a scarf or two once I finish this one. IDK. Something less...bulky. There's just so much blanket to maneuver right now. XD

Anyway. I'm going to try to be productive now. I make no guarantees, really, but I ought to at least poke at things. I'm just so TIRED. :\
