Here's what I managed to accomplish:
1) I finished the last 6 garter striped squares I needed for a felted bag (Ravelry Pattern Link)
2) A funky-coloured, Bicycle Wheels hat (Ravelry Pattern Link). I think this one will be a Christmas gift for my niece.
3) A cabled sleeve for my new Nexus 7 tablet. It's a modified version of a Kindle sleeve (Ravelry Pattern Link)
4) A Newsprint Cowl (Ravelry Pattern Link). I'm pretty proud of this project, as I had to rip it back and start over 5 times before finally getting the hand of the slipped stitch colourwork (2 colour brioche), which I'd never done before. Once I figured it out, it was a really fun knit, and I'll be making more of these, for sure!
