Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Something that went well

Posted by Amber on January 31, 2007


Start Lots of Sweaters – Done! I started Rogue with my Baltimore yarn, and the lace sleeve raglan with the Karabella. Rogue is somewhere along the lines of 1/3 done (two sleeves and a good part of the body) and the lace sleeve raglan is also about 1/3 (past the yoke, about 1/3 of the body).

Start at least two projects with the one-off balls of yarn in the closet – Done! I made a Fake Isle hat (magknits; no photo), a Triada scarf (although that technically wasn’t yarn from the closet), I started my second falling leaf sock, and I started another pair of Glottens with some Koigu Kersti I bought in NY back in July.

(And in Old Goals: I finally seamed my Durrow sweater. No photos, yet. Must find right shirt to go with it.)

New for February

Finish Falling Leaves Socks (I’m halfway through the heel)
Start another pair of socks for hallway knitting
Finish Kersti Glottens (make notes on number of rounds used for fingers, so that fingers are same length!) (I have 1″ more ribbing to go on #1 before really starting)
Finish body of Lace Sleeve Raglan
Order Super Secret Yarn (I love these covert knitting missions!)

ETA – Blogger has gone psycho! It’s now emailing me Judy‘s comments (with some “no reply” email address), and not mailing me Amber‘s comments. Complete reversal!

Anyway, there will be no Durrow on Thursday, I don’t have the right shirt, and even if I did, it wouldn’t photograph well in the dark. I mean, I can bring it if you want to see the weird thing going on with the neck on the size small, but otherwise I was going to leave it at home.

    Go Amber Go! I have a sweater proposition for you, oh prolific sweater knitter, involving the top down raglan. No you don’t have to knit me a sweater, I can make my own.
