It's that time of year again ...

... to plan too many projects with not enough time to finish them.

As we've seen, there are a lot of babies coming, and I'm realizing that many may have to settle for practical gifts and store-bought clothes, because I really don't have time to make things for everyone.

I've been seeing some amazing crochet gifts on Pinterest, and I want to do something for the Moms like crochet market bags or slippers or something.

I made Baby's stocking last year, but it didn't finish the way I wanted -- the pattern at the stop was very tight, so when I switched to a regular stockinet stitch for the heel, it stretched out a lot and looked really weird.
Now because I was doing this up until the moment Santa arrived, I didn't have time to fix it. So that's on the list to do before December 24. I also don't love how the name embroidery came out, so I want to fix that too.

Someday I'd also like to make a Tree Skirt, but that may have to wait until a summer without babies.
