Baby Gifts

Many people at work are expecting babys in the next few months and I'm up to my eye balls in crocheting/knitting baby gifts. 2 of the ladys I'm perticuarly close with are getting blankets and the other 3 are getting hat/bootie sets - that I havn't started yet- but I digress.
I've also have gotten orders for 2 pairs of baby booties/socks that I need to complete in the next week.
1 of the blankets is almost done, 1 I started tonight ( the blankets are giant granny squares) and I havn't started on any of the others.
The blankets both need to be done by the end of april,or the baby showers, when ever they may be. The first baby due is in December,then 1 in Febuary, 1 in April and 2 in may.
I just need to sit down and get it done. I'm thinking this week end will be filled with hat and bootie crocheting.
I also want to make a few extras for charity after the gift crocheting is done.
We will see, we will see......

A lil bit about me

This is my first post here, I was waiting to get some pics of my latest projects, but it's been a week, so I don't think that's going to happen for at least another week.

My name is Hayley, I'm engaged to Stewie, and we have a room mate I shall refer to as "Fat Man", although come spring me and Stewie are moving to a smaller appt and leaving him behind.
I'm a cashier, a crafter, and an aunt of 7 sweeties, 4 girls, 3 boys ages 9 - 2 .

Currently on the needles : (Active)
3 pairs socks , 4 baby/child sweaters, 2 baby afghans for friends, Teddy bears, My neices sweater, Blanket made from sock yarn scraps, log cabin style, and
Christmas ornaments

(on hold)
Jessies sweater from SNB Nation, a few afghans, a scarf, 2 more baby sweaters, and several quilt tops.

On The "to do" list: 2 hat/ bootie sets for a couple girls I work with, my wedding shawl ( first time at lace WAHOOT!), another sweater for me, and more socks as well as felted slippers and a counted cross stitch for my mom.

There are more, I know there is, but I'm to lazy to look around right now.

More of these projects will be discribed as I work on / finish them.

Catch ya on the flip side!
