Milestone post, and knitgoals of the month
Posted by Amber on March 2, 2007
Happy 100th post to me! I’ve been holding off on posting because I wanted to have a picture extravaganza for Post 100. But then I really wanted to talk about myself, so I’ll just make sure I’m prepared for Post 200.
My February Goals Recap:
Finish Falling Leaves Socks – Done! Still picture-less. They’re a little odd – the pattern doesn’t cling much, so they’re loose around my ankles, and tight around my calf. In a do-over, I’d only do 7 pattern repeats on the leg, and then add more ribbing at the top.
Start another pair of socks for hallway knitting – Done! I started Pomatomus. Although their appropriateness for hallway knitting (when I’m a little early for class) is dubious – you really have to think about them!
Finish Kersti Glottens – Not done. I couldn’t get excited about the thumb gusset.
Finish body of Lace Sleeve Raglan – Not done. But I did knit and assemble an entirely different sweater – the Shawl Collar Cardigan and I finished the body of Rogue (and discovered I don’t have enough yarn for the hood, called the store, and found they don’t have any more. Now I have to re-engineer the top of the body to look cool and be hoodless).
Order Super Secret Yarn – Done! Bwhahahaha!
March is going to be a light knitting month. I have two midterms and a 10 day trip to Israel! Why knit when there’s falafel? And olives. And hummus. And wine. And falafel.
Finish Pomatomus (keep your fingers crossed I get a nice airport screener who lets me keep my needles!).
Figure out specs for Project Top Down Raglan. Cast on. Or possibly, knit one sleeve from my Old Blue Top Down Raglan. Sleeves are good too.
