Seriously, where does the time go?

Good golly, Miss Molly, it's already August. What's up with that? I've only got one week until my mom comes and only two weeks until my baby's supposed to come. Wow.

Well, I did manage to get my yarn and notions all nice and organized this week, thankfully. I have a feeling future me will be very grateful to this week me for doing this. I did have an epic battle with a skein of the Lion Brand Homespun though. I really do not like that yarn. I don't know what the heck I am going to do with the almost three skeins I have of it. Maybe I will figure out something to do with my giant speed hook that I've never used... We'll see I guess, that's a thought for later anyway.

I did manage to get started on a burp cloth from the leftover yarn from my recently finished baby blanket. Didn't make too much progress because my hands keep getting tingly. Ah, the joys of pregnancy. But it is progressing. Might be done before the baby comes. I am not using any set pattern, just a size F hook and single crochet. I've made it 40 wide and will just keep going until it's long enough then do a border with the variegated yarn.

That's really all I've got going on. I don't know how much crocheting I'll get done today, because I am definitely going to be finishing the last Harry Potter book, which I started last night. I forgot how hard that book is to put down. The last time I read it was the day it came out, and I do mean that I read the entire thing the day it came out. Could not put it down. But, I did get a decent stockpile of DVDs in this week, so hopefully I'll be able to make a few hours a day to pop those in and work on crochet projects, and therefore progress will happen. I also need to do my August swap square this week.

Speaking of swap squares, and the fact that it is now August, here are the July squares my sister and I made. The pattern was the Pinwheel 12" Square which you can find here.

This is the one I made:

And this is the one my sister made:

Ooh, I am getting excited to see how the finished blankets come out. I almost got ambitious and started piecing my existing squares together this week, but I want to wait until I have them all so I can put them in the niftiest arrangement possible.

Well, until next week, take care everyone!

OOh that square your sister did, looks like a colorway I've seen with Patons SWS. Love it!

Good luck to you on your motherhood journey!
