Wip's too many! How many projects do you have?

Hello everyone!
I haven't done a hey this is what I am doing post in months sooooo here is what is on my hooks!
Lets start with the chirstmas colors!!! How many people know this pattern ? I've seen it every where online, Elizabeth Ham made a very fun new way to do the granny! it's easy but still interesting enough to not  want to put it down... as soon as I get more yarn it's on LIKE donkey  kong!!  FREE Drop in the Pond Blanket pattern There are also great easy to follow videos for this too!!
I also have a few scarfs, shorts, a stocking and a HOT Pink and Black prayer shawl in the works....
Can you tell what the circle is? would you belive if I told you it's going to be either a jacket or vest?? I started with a pattern from drops design ( google them they have great free patterns BUT they make you jump around to read them and make sure you pick one in the right English hahaha , I write patterns in American, but British English looks similar but they call our double a treble... and there are other differences which can throw you off!) but I used easy to find Caron's Smply Soft and a J hook and after modification I'm loving this! Look for this to be on my blog this month with all the changes I am making!!

I love that it starts as a circle, and boy does this project grow QUICKLY !!
though I live in CA so an open piece like this is good because it never gets that cold here! a warmer one could be made using 2 strands or using a smaller stitch :)

Here is another wip photo for this
Like my zebra shoes hehehehe? I love the way it increases and I had no trouble with it laying flat as a circle :) 

Okay and here is a not great but just to give you an idea photo
This isn't don't as I am still working on the front but wohooo this is the back and I love it!!

Yes I'm bad but I really love my diet coke  or coffee when I film! But I want's to share this photo to tell you new video will be released this month! 
Tell me how many projects do you work on at once? Also What free patterns would you like to see here? What patterns of mine would you like to see in a video?

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook. Make a magic circle Round 1 Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join. Sides and top of cross Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides. Bottom of the cross When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center. On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel. If thread isn't your thing check out this great bookmark Stitch 11 made from my Cross Bangle pattern! Check out the Stitch 11 post here

Easy simple no shaping stocking ornament

Step 1 This is the star stitch but you can make these any size and any stitch just make it in this shape.

I am making about 30 of these for my 6 year old to hand out as Christmas gifts at school with mini candy canes in them!
