My weekend plans involved knitting on my Effortless cardgian. I have two sleeves and that big collar.
Instead I cast on a hat for February's Hatathon challenge. I've planned for five hats, all out of stash and all from patterns I alrady own. This hat used up some old Kureyon. I spent a lot of time on ravelry, as you do, looking up projects and yarns for the hat patterns in my library. I dread to think how long it would take me to decide if I wasn't limiting myself to patterns in my library!
So the cardigan wasn't picked up again until sunday evening. In fact, the sleeve does quickly. I've finished the decreases and have about two more inches of stocking stitch, and then the three inches of ribbing. I'll try to knit both sleeves this week. No distractions!
Mad Dash starts in the Stash Knit Down group this weekend. The idea is to knit as uch yardage as possible up to the end of March. Totals are totted up and we see if we can beat lat year's total. I'm aiming for 2750 yards. Not a lot, but I work long hours and have to accommodaate ravelry browsing into my time - I'm not really a forward planner. Some knitters take it very seriously and do multi stranded projects to increase yardage. So far I'm (very) loosely thinking of three more hats, a cowl, felted clogs and the collar of Effortless. Maybe a pair of socks. \,MrC has been culling his socks and has thrown out a few pairs of socks which have gone baggy on him. He checked his facebook knitting folder and these ones are about seven years old. He still has older socks, but his favourites are pretty much worn every few weeks. Not bad!
