Wrapping it up.

I had a few too many "fall asleep on the couch at 9 p.m. while watching Storage Wars" nights this week, so it was time to kick in to productivity mode.

Notebook cover
I unrolled a Rouenneries honey bun to make this composition book cover (tutorial by V and Co).

Made PJ pants for Luke using leftover Batman flannel and Dana's tutorial.

Last year, I made a voile and velveteen Figure 8 scarf using Anna Maria Horner's tutorial. She used 18-inch-wide fabric, and it looks really cute in her pictures. It made me look like a velveteen turtle. After seeing skinnier versions popping up online (most recently by Krista and Angela), I decided to cut it in half and make two 9-inch scarves. Better.

Finished up this little owl. (Pattern from the Holiday 2010 issue of Knit Simple.)

More of these.

And more of these.

Oh yay, Luke and Ryan will have matching PJ pants :) Look at you go!! I'm right there with you, conking out too early on the couch the last few nights, too, with still mountains to do before Christmas. Looks like you're going to pull your holiday together just in the nick with time to spare!

Wow! I've just embraced that my gifts to my goddaughters and my mom and dad are going to be late. It did wonders for my stress. I am so impressed by your lovely projects!

Look at you and your mega-productivity! Luke is a cutie modeling his pants and so are you and your scarf! Love your glasses!

Hilarious, Katie - love the diet coke!
I did the same thing with the infinity scarf -- after making it the full width, I couldn't believe how ridiculous I looked! I also cut mine in half, and am much happier with it (and have one to give to my sister for a present)!

I love those brownies! Now, as for that owl. TOO CUTE!! I'd love to learn to make those little guys for my future niece/nephew. Is it hard to learn?
