My Knitting is Going so SLOWLY

I'm still working on the pinwheel baby blanket. I have a little more than one skein to incorporate in the blanket. It's currently a bit bigger than 60 inches in diameter. Not sure how big I am supposed to make it. I have this solid color skein of Koigu (the one that I didn't use for my Charlotte's Web) that I could use at the end to do some sort of fancy edging... *sigh*, but I do not know any fancy edging techniques. Perhaps I should invest in one of those popular edging books that I seem to run across now and then. I think a nice edging could really add to the appearance of the blanket if anyone has any suggestions.

I'm also not done with my Charlotte's Web. I'm on my last skein and just have to do the last section, but since each row is bigger than the previous, each row takes a really long time.

I recently bought the Lace Leaf Shawl by Evelyn Clark since I had seen it on a few other people's blogs and thought it was great. I also purchased two skeins of Jade 2-ply cashmere in Sterling to make it. It will be my first project using Cashmere but at this rate I will never get to it.

I am also going to start knitting the DNA scarf pattern. I think I know of someone who would be one of the few to appreciate such a thing. Eventually I would like to knit one for myself. And my mom would probably love it too! Eeek! So many people to knit for. But first priorities are finishing the baby blanket since the baby will likely be born in the next 1 -3 weeks.
