March Goals Check In

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:

  1. Clapotis i’m about 60% done. no new pics since you’ve seen dozens of them around the ring!
  2. A pair of gloves
  3. St. Brigid
  4. Mariah I’m done with the right front
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. An aran sampler throw blanket for my Mom. (I think this will be for her birthday in September)
  8. 6 5 pairs of socks. house socks, 1 sock for me, and one half of a sockapalooza sock
  9. Some lavender-filled lace sachets for my Mom and Aunt Mary.
  10. 6 5 other small items (hats, scarves, mitts, etc.) natalya
  11. Something nice in lace. hanging vines scarf
  12. No 2004 UFOs remaining at the end of 2005
  13. 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…

  1. What a great list. I am envious. I hate making lists! Kevin is a list maker. Maybe I can get him to make me a knitting list…goodness knows what it would look like. Knit my Norwegian sweater. Sell that stash. Quit buying yarn. :)

  2. Quite a list – it all sounds good. I have given up making lists because I find always rebel against them and do something totally different!

  3. Wow, you’ve already made some impressive progress on your list! I’m eager to see your tank design.(no pressure.)

  4. You have quite a list going and you’re making progress. I’m thinking tank time too but I’ll use someone else’s pattern. Can’t wait to see some pictures!

  5. You really miss something when you can’t have it don’t you, gosh do I know that feeling. I’m with you on the no outstanding 2004s at the end of 2005.

  6. About Snowflake, have you thought about cutting just below the fairisle, knitting the additional red rows then grafting the two pieces back together? I’ve read about it in one of Kate Buller’s books. It may save you reknitting the fairisle but it means a fair bit of engineering though.
