Bits and bats

The title says it all really, here are all of the things that I have been distracted by this week... that's where I seem to be at at the moment, I never have a week of working on just one thing, I flit about a lot. Firstly is not something I'm making, it's just very pretty. I signed up for the For The Love of Yarn blanket club this year, and my first months arrived this week. I'm completely in love with the colours. I haven't decided what pattern to go with yet, I have to admit I'm not a massive fan of the pattern that came with it, so as soon as I decide what I'm going to do with it... yeah yeah, we all know I've got way too many projects on the go, but it's so pretty and I love owning them, and I'll debate over patterns and probably end up going for old faithful anyway... watch this space, you never know, I might start something.

Second up, I finished the hat, I'm so happy. It also means that I have one less obligation piece on the go, which means that I'm one step closed to working on something that I actually want to work on. The frog hat is already winging his way towards a new home, and I am debating whether to work on a blanket that I want to work on (a couple of options, see pretty yarn above, or I'm also signed up for Attic24's Moorland CAL, which I haven't started yet, and am probably going to use a different pattern for... see if you can guess which pattern I'm going to go for.
And finally, this ladies haven't seen the light of day since the end of 2013, but I pulled them out for a SAL this month, where the theme is 'closest to finishing'. I'm not close to finishing anything, but mathmatically this probably have the least stitches required to finish it. This is from Soda Stitch, and is quite cute actually.

Cute hat! I like the look of your stitch piece and a month of focus might surprise you, she says optimistically.
