Whittling Down the WIPs

As you probably guessed, I've been working hard to finish projects that are already on the needles so that I can start a few new projects when I'm in Germany for the H+H Show. Over the weekend, I finished my secret knitting project of blobby proportions - it took a good, solid afternoon of watching a Royals spring training game to finish that sucker up, but I think it turned out well and I plan to share the FO photos next week, once it's been gifted.

After that, I set my sights on the Tortie Cat Socks; on Sunday night, I finished the toes, and this week I am now working on the afterthought heels so that I can officially move this project into the "done" pile!
I did start another handspun baby bear hat so that I had a simple knit I could take on-the-go; on Monday, I found myself randomly at the International Home & Housewares show at McCormick Place here in Chicago, which was a total trip. Seriously, that show was bonkers. I was so dumbfounded, the only photo I managed to take was of this awesome Pac-Man wall that was attached to a booth I now remember nothing about (so, mission not accomplished for this display, I guess).
On the plus side, I had some transit time during which I could knit on this hat, and my goal is to finish up this hat before Germany, which I think is doable!
And that's it for this week. Whew. Thanks for hanging with me and the kind of scant blogs which have been occurring this month. Once I get back from H+H, you can bet I will be blogging full-force once more. I will have a lot of photos to share from Berlin, Cologne, and of course, the H+H show itself, where I'll be looking for the latest trends to share with you. And who knows? Maybe I'll come home with an FO or two!
