Yes, I know it's not the end of the month, but I can't see myself finishing anything else in the next two evenings, and I need to put down all the stuff I need to do!
Do for November
1 Shetland MKAL shawl - done
2 Quill shawl - done
3 Mr C's hot water bottle cover - done
4 Newborn baby cardigan - done
5 Storm Mountain cardigan - hmmm, done but barely a dozen rows.
6 The sixth TSS shawl - done (and finished!)
7 Mr C's Birthday socks - done
So a very successful month! I'm sort of getting swamped with stuff I need to knit for Christmas and the Giftalong so December is going to be the month with a big list (but smaller goals)
So for December
1 Stitchnerd's Knitaly MKAL cowl - it's knitted and washed I jsut need to TAKE A PHOTO
2 Sonder (TSS) shawl - this still needs blocking!
3 Knitvent #2 pattern, the Boreal Forest cowl. It's drying and needs the ends darned in
4 Knitvent #1 Alpine Sunset shawl - still plugging away on this. Im about 50% done
5 Knitvent #3 dk weight socks. I've not blogged, nor set up the pattern yet on ravelry. I'm about 25% done
6 Mr C's birthday socks! I've hardly touched these. I need to knit them when Mr C is not about, and will have to discipline myself to pick them up at any free moment
7 Storm Mountain cardigan. It's been put on the back burner but I'll try to gt the yoke, at least, done.
START (finishing would be GREAT, to clear WIPs in 2016)
8 Mr C's Christmas socks
9 Knitvent #4 - due out on 1st
10 Knitvent #5 - out 8th
11 Knitvent #6 - out 15th
AND LET'S NOT FORGET GIFTALONG 2016!!!! This year I've bought
- 2 hat patterbs
- 2 fingerless mitts patterns
- a baby/child vest
- a baby/child cardigan
- 2 cowl patterns
I doublt that I'll be casting on another eight patterns! let's just say
12 Stitchnerd's hat pattern
13 One of the cowl patterns by Hilary Smith Callis (these are shawl/cowl hybrids and i want to try one out, see if I like it)
14 A pair of mitts - I have two, from Jane Richmond and or Irish Girl Knits
15 Eight eh baby vest or cardigan.
16 All the accessories (hats. mitts, cowls etc) and baby knits which I've knitted throughout the year as gifts. These need to be located, rewashed if necessary and either given or posted to recipients. Mr C' son and girlfiriend get a big bundle which they take for themselves and friends. My nieces have friends with new babies (yikes) and a few friends and other relatives have small children. I swear, if I didn't work I'd have to knit full-time to knit ALL of the things I want to knit!
I'm predicting that, yes, I'll be going forward into 2017 with a grubby flat (no time to clean) and lots of WIPs to see me through to the Spring!
