February Goal update


Here we are at the end of February and where does that leave us with my goals list?

I have been practicing on my wheel and spindle. So far I have managed to finish a skein of yarn on both.

Second ever skein of yarn from my Drop Spindle


I will have to find another charity to knit for. The one I was thinking of doing it for has asked for donations to stop for the moment. Considering the KAS charity or knitting some for a podcaster’s charity drive.

My socks in color I like are nearly completed. When I got the yarn off Ebay I thought that the yarn was more purple that it has actually is. But I still like them. I have used the Hermoine’s every Day socks pattern, but have replaced the heel with the OMG Heel by Megan Williams. And I love doing this heel. Being a newbie type knitter I usually stick to the pattern so this is the first time I have deviated from the pattern and used a part of another pattern in it.

The Little Miss Cardigan is going along slowly. There is a back is done and I was nearly done on the front side… until I realized that I had made a mistake and had to pull out about 10cm of knitting. :-\

I have purchased a Craftsy class on Continental Knitting so here’s hoping there is progress there too.

The corner to corner blanket that I was making for the Little Miss is FINISHED!! LOL she chose the colors and has declared it the best blanket ever.

Looking up on Ravelry I found out I started the Ocean Waves Blanket 2 years ago and it has had very little work done on it in the last 18 months so it has been frogged. I will have to find a new project to use the yarn in.
