Why are the Projects backing up?

So would you like to tell me why the projects are backing up? I just can't seem to finish the ones on the needles--the Coquette sweater, Anna's dress, and that last sock. I just keep thinking about the items that need to get finished--my Mom's birthday present, a couple of summer sweaters (which would come in handy now, since it is HOT here), and a gift for my soon to be arriving niece. Ok. She shows up in July, but I feel like I need to have the items done when we visit in June.

I poked around my patterns trying to figure out what I wanted to make for the baby. I came up with a little set, all done in the same yarn. Here's the plan: baby booties, a hat, and a sweater.

The patterns?

Baby Slippers from Zoe Mellor's Adorable Knits for Tots:

And then a nice little hat (without earflaps)--the Miss Dashwood from Knitty:

And, from Weekend Knitting, a baby sweater:

Both the sweater and the hat use the same gauge yarn, and I think I can modify the booties to get gauge and use the identical yarn. I wanted something that a Cali baby could wear into the fall--a cotton. My sister in law, however, would appreciate a yarn that could be washed easily, so a blend was perfect.

I found what I wanted on Webs. I chose Dive/Lana Borgesesia Cotton Club 706(6-% cotton/40% Acrylic--very soft blend!). Isn't it a pretty rose?

Hmm. Now I just have to finish the projects on the needles before I can move on to the next list...
