In progress... and trying to contain my inspiration

With work being nice and 'normal' for a change, my head is overrunning with ideas. Sint Maarten, Sinterklaas and Christmas coming up don't help either... There's all these cool crafting ideas and projects fighting for attention from my fingers... The list of WIPs (work in progress) is getting longer, and the yarn I'm spinning up when my head is just too busy to knit, is also screaming out to be worked into something nice...
So, I've added a few items to my In Progress list again... and my wish list and Favorites on Ravelry...
First up... the green/grey flap gloves for Mermaid...
Mermaid has very narrow hands, but these to me look very pointy and weird...
The thumb and flap are done, half fingers still missing. Glove 1, not sure if this project will see completion...
Yarn: grey Drops alpaca and the Lana Grossa Meilenweit Wave. 
Because of these doubts, I started a new pair, from the spun up Diva Dose Spin Club from September (The Doctor).
Totally different pattern, with fingers this time. Knits up like a dream. These will be finished before the weekend is out, I guess!
Contains merino, bfl, silk and a bit of firestar. Soft soft!!!
And more knitting for Mermaid, who was complaining that I 'never knit anything for her!'
This is the cabled yoke of a tunic. Nice and warm and wintry. Hopefully done soon.
And while we're talking of Mermaid, her winter coat... is still waiting... My dress is almost ready, one more evening at sewing class or at home and I'm done! Then I'll get started on the coat...
