Blankets and such...

I feel like I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off since I got back from my trip to Oregon.  I have been working like crazy, babysitting as much as possible on the side and getting as much crocheting in as possible.  Christmas is right around the corner and I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little stressed.  I am making four blankets for presents this year.  I finished one in the very beginning of August, started the third with in 30 minutes of completing the first blanket.  The second recently came out of hibernation.  As it stands I could potentially finish either the 2nd or 3rd blanket this weekend.  More than likely the 2nd one.  Its all put together and I still have to add a few more rows for the border and put a cute edge on it.  The 3rd well, I cannot wait to be done.  I am at the point where I am bored with it and the 2nd blanket.  Here is the 2nd as I left lastnight...
Here is a reminder of what the 3rd looks like...
This was when it was first started, I honestly thought I had a more up to date picture. I will have to work on that this weekend. 

Since I am showing off the other two may as well remind you all of the first!
Oh yes, look at that granny goodness! 

I have to start the 4th.  I have the yarn but am uncertain as to a pattern.  I thought I had one picked out and I started playing with it lastnight and its not a good fit.  I plan on using camoflauge yarn and possibly incorporating green, brown and or black into the blanket.  I have enough camoflauge yarn and would love to use as much as possible, if not then I can use it for another blanket. 

There are so many crafty things I wanna make right now. I am really wanting to sew more, but fabric is so expensive. I really want to embroider but I am telling  myself no to anything until I get these blankets finished.
