I have so much to do that I am going to bed. (Savoyard proverb)

I finished the baby socks I was working on, and they are so gosh-darn adorable! I want to make more.

I also finished the knitting portion of the French Press slippers. I can't believe how quickly these knit up. They really don't look like much right now. I still have to seam them together, and then felt them in the washing machine. I really hate to seam things, but I'm going to try to push through it this week. (Heck, maybe I'll even finish the last seam on my Riva sweater while I'm at it!)

I also cast on a pair of socks. This pair is for Becka. Somehow she always gets my colorwork socks. This is a fun, easy slipped stitch pattern so it's going quickly. I wasn't sure that I'd be able to carry them around as my pocketbook knitting. But by winding the balls as center-pull, there really hasn't been any problems.

I've already picked out my next two projects to cast on, so I need to get busy and finish things up this week.

I need to knit a Gir as a thank you to my son's friend, who helped me out recently. (I had the Gir on my list for him, just because I knew he wanted one. But now I have a reason to give it to him.)

I also need to knit up a couple of baby bibs for my cousin's son. I had made them one, and apparently they love it. So much that my teenager has asked me to make them more.
