Go Hawkeyes! And other WIP's!

Playing catch up here with FO's and WIP's. I figure I better get as much posted as I can before baby comes otherwise those FO's may never make it on here! Speaking of baby, as of today, it is 2 weeks until D-Day! We are getting very excited and anxious! Will he be here on time? Early? Late? What do you think?

Awhile ago, I was asked to make a scarf in Iowa Hawkeye colors for my father-in-law's co-worker. I want it done by fall so figured I better get a good start on it before baby comes.

I'm using Cascade 220 and I just love this yarn. It's about 25% done but I am liking how it is turning out. You can see the short piece of yarn on the left side of the picture, I had just enough left to finish the round! Thankfully I grabbed another skein of black so I can keep going for now.

I finished the Sun Hat earlier this month but as always I do not block right away so it takes awhile for me to post FO's. I really like how this turned out. Can't wait to take another pic with baby wearing it!

You can see green and white in the background of the second picture. That is a hanging dishcloth that is currently blocking. I still need to add a button. I think I may add it to my brother's apartment warming package. I loved making it...I think I may make a few more for Christmas gifts.

George the Giraffe knitting kit I received from my sister-in-law and her hubby is ALMOST done. I need to stitch on his eyes, mouth, etc. I am not good at sewing pieces on...he looks like a gremlin! It was fun to do though!

I am still working on my Blog A Long list. It is becoming quite long! I added several Christmas and baby projects for friends. I was going to attempt an afghan but think I may just make it a baby afghan instead. My goal is to have the Hawkeye scarf and a project (secret!) done for my friend's baby who will be one in July before I start my Blog A Long list. We'll see what happens...

Well, back to my Coca-Cola and Hawkeye scarf! Thanks for reading everyone!
