Celtic Solstice – I have all the quilting done! To be fair, I had 2 of the sides left to quilt at the end of January and just finished quilting the other two sides today. And, I have it all trimmed and ready for binding. So my goal for February is to get it bound and labeled.
Good Fortune – In January I finished Clue 1 and got through most of Clue 2. I just need to finish trimming my HSTs for Clue 2, which I plan to do in February and work on Clue 3.
Provence – My goal for February is to piece the border. I’m still deciding if I should go with just 1 border or find a second border to add to it.
I generally work on my knitting during the week and when I’m out and about. So my focus knitting is on my monthly socks. Right now they are my February socks. Because it’s February. 🙂 In January, I was working on Helen Stewart’s Honey Bees Dance Socks and they are not done. I’m using a sock blank so I can only do 1 sock at a time (I dislike doing 1 sock at a time!). And I’m still on my first sock. I have one last pattern repeat and then I can do the toes. This is almost done. But it’s February now so these socks are not the socks I’m focusing on. I will try to finish these as I’m almost done… My February socks are Kim Drotar’s Mercury Socks using Hypnotic Yarns “Grinchmas” colorway. I’m doing these toe up and I finished the first pattern repeat. I plan to do a pattern repeat a day so I should be at the heel in about 2 weeks. I work on these daily. On most Tuesdays and Thursday evenings I meet with some knitting friends at our LYS – A Major Knitwork in Van Nuys, CA. There I work first on Jacob’s Weasley Sweater. I finished the front and I’m currently working on the neck shaping. My goal for February is to be working on the sleeves. And when I get to a good stopping point, my favorite piece to work on is my Featherweight Cardigan. I love working on this and right now I’m finishing Yarn 1 and moving in Yarn 2. In February I want to be working in Yarn 3.
For Cross Stitching:
- Mama’s Bukid- I was able to finish the pages in January and every month from now until it’s finished my plan is to finish 2 columns per month.
- Gamer – I was able to get halfway through page 6 so in February my goal is to finish page 6.
- Snowman – My February goal is to finish stitching the perimeter of this WIP.
Have a Happy Saturday Night!
Keep crafting and love on!
