February was a slow month for me. I started up working on the house again so there’s not nearly as much knitting time. I’m OK with that but I’m missing my knitting time. Next weekend should be a knitty weekend and I’m really looking forward to it!
Here’s my progress to date:
- Clapotis i’m about 60% done. no new pics since you’ve seen dozens of them around the ring!
- A pair of gloves
- St. Brigid
- Mariah I’m done with the right front
- 4 other sweaters for me. Given my pile of half-completed sweaters this isn’t as lofty as it might seem. snowflake update: Snowflake is going to the frog pond. Or at least the frog puddle. The fair isle band hits right across my breasts. What was i thinking? So i need to pull out all the fair isle, knit another few inches of solid red, and then do the snowflake band FLAT (yup, purl rows). A possible alternative is to do the band on the front and back and steek the armholes. Never having done steeks i am procrastinating this until next fall.
- A tank/sleeveless top that fits well. This is probably the hardest goal! update: I’ve started designing a tank in All Seasons Cotton. I’ve never knit with this yarn before and I LOVE it! I’ll post pics when there’s something substantial to show.
- An aran sampler throw blanket for my Mom. (I think this will be for her birthday in September)
65 pairs of socks. house socks, 1 sock for me, and one half of a sockapalooza sock
- Some lavender-filled lace sachets for my Mom and Aunt Mary.
65 other small items (hats, scarves, mitts, etc.) natalya 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’ve purchased 2 hanks of Schaefer Anne in 2005 and used one of them for the hanging vines shawl. I also purchased All Seasons Cotton for a little sweater challenge I’m making up for myself. More details later on that…
