I’ve been working on my Ravelry queue

I sat down this weekend and planned out some fall/winter project for myself, picked out some patterns, lined them up in my Ravelry queue. If you’re on Ravelry and want to stalk me, I’m IL-Nachomama on there. At any rate, I have a lot in mind! I need to finish up a couple of custom longies I’m working on. They are super duper cute so far. I showed off my progress to a mama today and she is psyched, as am I. I’m still working on the gnome mittens. Progress is slow on those since they are my “after all small people are asleep” work.  I’ll be making a cardi for Big Brother.  I think we’re going to dye some yarn up for it together later this week. He loves dyeing with me, so that will be really fun.

A dear friend brought me a surprise bag of awesome yarn from Tuesday Morning of all places. Some of that is going to become my winter hat. Then, I think I’ll have to make some new Glittens. I think I lost one last year, which makes me so so sad. BUT, it’s a super fun pattern, so I’m not sad about having to redo.

For Baby Sister, I’d like to bang out a couple more pairs of S/M size Evie Pants. We just moved up to that size and I feel like it’s going to fit her for a while, probably the whole winter. She seems to be growing more slowly than Big Brother did, which is good for me, since I’m trying to have her wear all wool pants! I definitely want to make her some sort of soft toy, maybe a giraffe. I found a really cute pattern for some fuzzy guys, using some furry yarn. I’m sure I still have some in one of my bins from when those hairy scarves were a big thing.  I’d like to make her a Something Beautiful Shrug, but there is just too much in line in front of that! Maybe for spring…
