Plays with Yarn

A place where I can ramble about all things knitterly.

March goals...

Following the example set by Kris...

Goals for March:
1) FINISH Michael's blanket and get it sent off. He graduated 9 months ago, lord I'm slow.
2) Finish all current WIPs.
3) Continue stash pruning. (HINT *grin*--I'm actually taking a bunch to Goodwill, stuff that was given to me that I will probably not use)
4) Spoil the hell out of my poor Secret Pal, who, due to an Amazon issue, hasn't actually gotten anything from me yet. (Mailing a really good package tomorrow though.)
5) At least start a spring sweater of some sort, possibly Oat Couture's Bistro Top.
6) Figure out what I'm going to do with all the random FOs I have that I knit because I wanted to knit them and not because I actually wanted to *have* them. (Yep, I'm definitely a process knitter.)

Artfibers was terrific. Overwhelming actually, like Atropos said. I bought two spools of Sherlock, which is a wool/silk blend knitted ribbon yarn. Between a DK and a worsted weight (I swatched it there...I love that they provide the yarn for you to do that before you buy). Everything felt wonderful.

I knit a bunch of dishcloths on the plane. Needed something small yet relatively mindless, and socks just held too much potential for needle loss. Besides, we needed dishcloths. Pictures later, if I make my overhead light work (the switch sticks). Also finished the multi-directional scarf the night before I left.
