Goal Check

I think it’s time to look at the goals again:

  1. Stash Bust–we’re getting there but it doesn’t look like a dent has been made. I know the Yarn Harlot says sock yarn doesn’t count as stash but it does seem to take up room.

  2. Flair Jacket-I’m making great headway and I’m excited to see how it turns out.

  3. I want to finally make a sweater-Absolutely no progress to speak of.

  4. Doctor’s Bag from Knit-2-Together-still need to workout the knots in the yarn I bought to make this bag. This year I will be gentler with the yarn I buy at Rhinebeck so this doesn’t happen again.

  5. Ocean Toes Socks-totally getting frogged. I there’s just too much going on in these socks and I want to make something else that I’ll like more.

  6. Carl’s Scarf-yah let’s not talk about this one. Maybe it will be done before the first frost maybe not.

  7. Complete a felting project-working on it. I think I’m going to make the French Market Bag from

  8. Argyle Socks for Grandpa-waiting on one more ball of yarn from knitpicks and then I can start these and have them done by father’s day (fingers crossed since I’ve never done intarsia).

  9. Mesh Gloves for the Northanger Abbey KAL-I restarted these last night after frogging the whole thing and downing a glass of wine and now it all makes sense funny how sometimes wine can clear a knitter’s brain and sometimes it can make it all foggy . Anyway, now that that’s all sorted I’m moving along rather quickly and hope to have these finished soon.

I have to admit I have fallen off the wagon and my yarn diet is a little um stalled BUT I will come back and be better than ever! NO MORE SEX! I can’t buy anymore yarn because frankly I have no place to put it all. My list of goals keeps increasing which I think is a good thing as long as my stash decreases as the goals increase. Sadly, this is not the case at the moment but we will soon change that. 2008 will be my great knit-a-thon!

I am with you on the stash enhancement. I seem to be acquiring yarn at an alarming rate. I need a new storage system... and I need to learn how to knit in my sleep. Otherwise I will never use all of the yarn I have.

Bring the knotted mess along with you tonight. I love a good untangling project, and well, it will probably be more exciting than job searching, with is my other pasttime.

I would totally count the flair jacket as a sweater!
