Accountability--14 Letters of Expectation

I thought I'd better get another knitting project on the needles. I don't want to finish my socks and start a harder sock pattern without a nearly brainless knitting job. So here's the Albino Bat. It's really an eyeshade--here's the pdf for the free pattern. Keep in mind that you'll actually upload the pattern when you click the link... if I did it right. Too often the lights go on and off when I go to bed before the Man of the Place. This might work better than a bandana... or a banana, now that I come to think of it.

Getting it started and up to 8 rows during Battlestar Galactica has definitely lost me the title of World's Slowest Knitter. Ah, 2007 was my glory year. No one could knit as slowly as I did. Ah, well, time makes fools of us all...
Also, got a little progress on Dream Dancer. I decided to work specifically on the blue area behind her instead of that cape. Oh, my stars! That cape has got to be the biggest piece of chamois ever depicted in Western art. I had to not sew on it for a while.
And here's the big picture for those who like to get a better idea of what's going on:

Cuddles asked me how I ever get so much done. I suppose it's this blog and readers like her. I have some accountability. People know what I'm working on and ask about it. My mom or my Beloved Uncle Don will regularly drop me an email to ask about something. Or another blogger working on a similar project has a comment to make. Even without that, it's in my face with my Too Many Projects list at the right side of my blog. Accountability. Speaking of which, I've got to go tidy the kitchen.

Waow!!!! I love your dream dancer. The colors are amazing. Is it a Joan Eliot design?
