I've started on the last (well hopefully the last) toy that I'm knitting for Christmas. I've settled on doing Bea the Basement monster from The Big Book of Knitted Monsters. He is being knit in the colors of my BIL's favorite soccer team (Chivas). I might have to call him Sonny the Soccer monster or something like that. Right now he is working up fairly easily though I had a few issues with the color change.
My other project is the blanket for my friend's baby. I'm still decreasing - I've got about 170 rows to go. It's still a while from being done but it's much more encouraging for the rows to be getting smaller, not bigger. Plus I have a little more time to finish it than I thought. Yay!
