Watch Me Wip: Hannah's Projects

I am personally really excited about our #WatchMeWip event on Ravelry (for which signups are happening now!) As someone who has been knitting and crocheting for a very long time, I find myself in a near-constant battle against things I've already cast on (but have gotten bored knitting or run into a challenge and set aside) and things I'd like to cast on. I love the feeling of guilt-free crafting that comes with clearing out my project bags and making room for new things, but I haven't really been able to attain it. #WatchMeWip seems like the perfect time to get some of these projects done (and wearable for Fall) so I have plenty of time to work on new things for holiday gifts and personal wardrobe!

Here's my list of the work-in-progress projects I'm hoping to complete for this event. What are you going to be working on?

Abby's Hat -- made in a mix of yarns to mimic a commercial hat she purchased in neutral colors. This is about 1/3 done.  
Dawlish socks! This pattern is from Rachel Coopey and features Candy Skein sock yarn (a dyer from September 2013!)  
Germinate -- this shawl is from Through the Loops and I'm almost to the third lace repeat (each row feels so long!) The yarn is Neighborhood Fiber Co. Rustic Fingering from our October 2014 shipment. 

Lace Ribbon Scarf -- a free pattern from Knitty, reimagined as an infinity cowl where I'll sew the ends together when it's finished. This is a little over halfway done and features Madelinetosh Merino Light in Neon Peach. 
Pop Blanket! This is the smallest size, made in Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton. I love this but each square started to feel like work so I set it aside. It would be great to finish it up and send it to be displayed in my mom's yarn store.
