And of course, I just started and finished a hat in the past few days (another project that will have to wait for next winter to get any use). More about that later.

Winter accessories, just in time for summer
My Nessie amigurumi consumed most of my attention during the week I spent working on it, but then after finishing it I suddenly checked three other things off my list. First, I finished my semi-secret project, a pattern from Beth Doherty's Amigurumi Super Happy Crochet Cute. No pictures or details at this point because I'm thinking about making it a present, but I will say I'm happy with how it turned out. Right after that, I finished off the Eternity Scarf I started as a bus-trip project... and put it on, and promptly realized I have no idea how to wear a bulky cowl. Fortunately I have about eight months to figure it out, since this winter seems to be pretty much over.
I also finally got around to blocking something! This is my Bias scarf, which I finished in December but never wore because it needed blocking. So yes, it did take me three months to get over that small hurdle, and of course it was a pretty simple project. I do think I needed to be a little more aggressive with the blocking, because I want the scarf to look more like mesh than ribbing. But, with the ridiculous summer weather we've been having, getting a scarf ready to wear is not a priority.
