Monday’s POA – week 11, 2018

Here were my goals from last week:

  • Mama’s Bukid – Page, 5, row 11 – I’m halfway through row 11 so I want to finish it this week. – DONE!
  • Celtic Solstice – measure the backing and prep the batting. Find a place to quilt this sometime next week. – NOT DONE!
  • UFO list – finalize this and bring it to my guild meeting to turn in. – NOT DONE!
  • Rainbow Garden – do a little bit of work on this on Sunday. – DONE!
  • Knitting projects:
    • Derive socks – March pattern for the Wanderlust Sock Club
      • These came out on 3/1 and I started the cuff (I work my socks cuff down).  I’ve got all the ribbing done and I am starting the pattern of the leg.  Each pattern repeat is about 12 rounds.  I usually do not make my socks very long in the leg area but I would like to see how these feel longer than I normally make them.  I think if I made them the length I usually make them it will be about 2 pattern repeats (about 24 rounds) so I’ll try to get in 3 pattern repeats this week.  If I like how the pattern is knitting up, and I have the time, I may even do a 4th pattern repeat before I start the heel. – DONE! I actually did 4 repeats and I’m ready to start the heel. 
    • Weasley Sweater for Kayla – I need Kayla to try this on again and determine if I should do the ribbing of the cuff now on the sleeves or continue in stockinette a bit longer. – DONE! I am actually on the cuff now and I am planning on doing about 3-4 inches of cuff.  I hope to get the cuffs done this week. 
    • Cowl – continue to do a round a day on this project. – ummm… Okay so that short answer is NOT DONE! but I did it for most days.  I think there was only one or two days that I didn’t work on this project and that’s really okay.  Even though this is one of my priority projects its Priority #3 and I don’t have to really touch it every day.  I just need to touch it most days and it will get done eventually.  I’m about halfway through right now.  

And for this week’s goals, here’s what I want to get done.

  • Mama’s Bukid – Page, 5, row 12 – get half way through row 12
  • Celtic Solstice – measure the backing and prep the batting. Find a place to quilt this sometime next week. … I really wanted to get this quilted this month but this weekend is the only weekend I can quilt it.  If I am able to measure the backing and prep the batting during the weekdays then I’ll be able to quilt it on Saturday.  The problem is I don’t know if I’ll have time to do it.  I have something going on every night except Friday.  I think the most important thing is to measure the backing and as long as that measures right I should be able to get the batting cut and prepped for Saturday.  So I will try to measure the backing Monday afternoon and if it is good to go I will schedule time on the Long Arm for Saturday.  😀 wish me luck…
  • UFO list – finalize this and bring it to my guild meeting to turn in.
  • Rainbow Garden – do a little bit of work on this on Sunday.
  • Knitting projects:
    • Derive socks – March pattern for the Wanderlust Sock Club
      • do the heels and start the foot
    • Weasley Sweater for Kayla – the cuffs!
    • Cowl – continue to do a round a day on this project.

Happy Crafting!
