Well I've got one gift purchased already. My Daddy's gift is on the needles and my Momma's is about to be casted on. I'm involved in one swap and about to sign up for two others. My Twilight swap is going well but I need to finish that bag this weekend for sure. Since I last blogged I've made the Talia vest which I just need to weave in the ends, block and sew on the buttons. I also made another Cable Newsboy cap and this time I'm not going to lose it. ;o)
