Last month I had said February was a slow month, but March really wasn’t any better! I’m not feeling too badly about it though. We’re continuing to do more work on the house (we have insulation, electricity, a ceiling, and 2 out of 4 walls done in the future bedroom!), and I know in a couple of weeks I’ll be spending more time outside in the garden. Once I get past these few knitting deadlines I’ve made for myself I want to try and enjoy the leisure of knitting again. Or at least, that’s what I’m telling myself.
In truth, I can’t seem to stop creating self-imposed knitting deadlines, even though most of them are more aggressive than they should be. Do any of you struggle with that? I think it’s partly my competitive nature (not my proudest trait, but there ya go), and partly the fact that there’s SO MUCH out there I wanna knit!
Having said that, here’s last month’s progress:
- A pair of gloves
- St. Brigid
- Mariah I’m reconsidering my yarn choice for this one. I’m still not certain though. Black is a great wearable color.
StartComplete 4 other sweaters for me. I started a ribby. Does that count?
- A tank/sleeveless top that fits well.
- An aran sampler throw blanket for my Mom. (I think this will be for her birthday in September)
64 pairs of socks. paul’s socks, sockapalooza socks, and 1 sock for me.
- Some lavender-filled lace sachets for my Mom and Aunt Mary. I’ll probably make these up in late April or early May for a mother’s day mail surprise.
64 other small items (hats, scarves, mitts, etc.) natalya and a little bag that still needs its picture taken./li> Something nice in lace.hanging vines scarf
- No 2004 UFOs remaining at the end of 2005
- At the end of 2005 I will have a smaller stash than I started with. I’m doing better this year than last certainly, but I’m averaging about one yarn purchase a month. Two weeks ago I bought the Cotton Fleece yarn for Ribby.
