Things I have finished: one prayer shawl, but I started another right away. These are going to be sent to a cousin in TX who is ill and whose daughter is also ill. I really need to work on some other things and get them finished also.

16. Cross Afghan (this is in progress but I haven't been doing it as well I could have).
17. Rug for Bathroom (have yarn and started).
18. Hats for Christmas gifts
19. Scarves for Christmas gifts
20. Palindrome scarf for friend's birthday (have yarn and started and stopped due to color combos being too dark and restarted).

Links: One of the pages I look at on FB, a woman kindly put together a listing and shared with all of us. It is a great work. I saved it. I think I might have to make one of those, but for now to make sure I will not lose these in the future, this is a good place to save also!
