Projects - Done and To Do

This week I've finished the scarves and the afghan for my student workers' graduation gifts.  I've given one gift which is why I'm posting the two pictures.  For the afghan, I need to take pictures.  I plan to publish four of the scarf patterns and the afghan pattern.  This adds to my list of crochet patterns to publish.  I have a bandanna, log cabin afghan, and set of headbands to publish.  

The collar or cowl scarf shown on the left turned out gorgeous.  I'm really proud of it because it was outside my normal and preferred type of project.  The smaller yarn and projects like this are hard on my hands but it was worth it to do and redo some of the stitching.  The other scarves turned out excellent and I'm excited to publish the four new ones.  The necklace type scarf I love making.  It uses up small bits of yarn but is stunning and versatile.  

Tonight I'll be working on dish towels and dish cloths to make for someone who is helping me out this weekend.  After I get those done, I'll be back on my other projects.  Currently I have bibs for a former co-worker of Vicki's, a skirt, a couple of afghans, and a few smaller projects which aren't designated for anyone yet.  

This weekend Ken goes off to Atlanta for twelve days.  I know he's excited to visit the girls down there.  It will give him a nice break from work and our messy house.  

Vicki and I plan to play a bit on Saturday.  Sunday we will have help with getting things organized and settled.  Next weekend will be busy with working on the house as well.  

However, I'm taking off work on the 11th and hoping to get some writing stuff done - like publishing patterns.  I'll have two days with no one in the house so I plan to get up and work on anything I have for writing - publishing, writing, marketing, editing.  I have a number of projects in the works so I want to make progress on them.  

Ken may be gone for twelve days but it will be a busy time for Vicki and I.  Hopefully by the time he comes home, the house is better organized.  I'm hoping this will lower everyone's stress levels.
