Much Ado About Nothing

Well, the die is cast.

My $10 and registration form are on their way to the Fair offices. I decided that my "undecideds" would be a pair of lace cuffed bootees from Zoe Mellor's 50 Baby Bootees to Knit,  and a pair of  convertible mittens that I found here:

Of course, I will make modifications. Since they are for my younger son (who is no longer all that young) the beads will be the first to go. Then maybe the cables. But maybe not.

I have a design idea for the snow people, and one of Jean Greenhowe's toy books to inspire me on the Clauses. We don't need another Christmas stocking here right now, and we have a "family" pattern that I have used for all of us (and entered in the Fair 2 years ago, in fact). So, I'll be searching high and low for something to use that I can give away (baby present, anyone?).  The Christmas ornament will be "yet another sheep." (I have a nice collection started.) I'll probably use Debbie Bliss as a jumping off point there.

All I need to do now is to avoid distraction

I have Debbie Bliss's "Baby Style" and it has a great sheep in it. GAH! I need about 15 hours more knitting time every day!
Country Kids and Toy Knits both have good sheep.
Stop enabling my UFO problem, woman!

Hmm, two more hours of work to go and then home to find one more embarrassing unfinished project to post about ...
