Squares, squares, and more squares!

I'm coming to the end of the year of square swapping I've been doing with the Baker's Dozen Group on Ravelry. It was really difficult to keep up at the end of the year, but I'm caught back up and the swapping will end in March. I'm almost done with the second Feb. square, was going to do one thing, but then decided to go with something totally different. The new square is going well and I hope to have it out by Monday. I think I've learned a lot about knitting this past year and my skills have really grown, and I've enjoyed the swap, but I must admit I'll be glad to be done. I've got quite a few projects that are started, but far from done. Here are some squares I've finished for my two BD Groups.

I have to say I'm going to try to hold off starting any new swaps, etc, until I've finished Mom's birthday sweater, the top for Emily, and a few other things. I'd really like to start something for myself, I've been stashing yarn as well as patterns for something for myself, would love to get started. Here's a few new yarns I've been gathering for me:)

Gotta love yarn destashers!

When I signed into Ravelry today I found a post from a lady who is de-stashing some of her yarns. And they are some really lovely yarns. Her prices are more than reasonable and the yarns are of great quality including some very nice Knit Picks yarns that I'm hoping to buy. You can find her at Alaskan Purl. But you should probably check soon, I doubt they will last long.
