WIP Wednesday: New Project Syndrome

See more wips at Tami's Amis

I have almost completed the two little baby sweaters.  I just need to add embellishments and weave in all my ends and they will be ready to mail out.  So, I am looking for a new project to start.

I already started the first of two star baby blankets.  All my baby gifts to my sister so far have a star theme.

The pattern is from Bernat, and I am going to crochet the blankets using blues, greens and greys, mostly from stash yarn although I may need to buy some.

I really wanted to make myself a skull shawl before the Day of the Dead, but I won't have enough time this year.

I also really want to make myself a new cowl and I want to try crocodile stitch.

I think the two could work really well together.
What are you working on this week?

WIP Wednesday: Baby Sweaters

Check out more wips at Tami's Amis.
I am ready to post some of my secret wips.

Pattern:  Baby's First Sweater
Yarn:  Caron Simply Soft
Needle:  US 8

These sweaters are for my sister's twins, due in December.  The blue one is unseamed, but this picture gives you a good idea of how the sweater knits up, in one piece.
The green one is seamed and is just waiting for the tie to be attached and for some ends to be woven in.
I plan to embellish each with an applique star crocheted in the same yarn as the tie.  I already gifted her hats and scarfs using the same yarns.
