I still have a few pattern repeats to complete on the foot before I can start the toe.  MyPOA for this week is to finish these socks this week and as long as I keep working on these every day that should happen.

As you know from my POA post, I finished the cuffs.  Yay!  I am loving this sweater and I can’t wait to be finished.  I plan to mattress stitch the sleeves and sides together and then finish up the neck part.  Depending on how the neck part goes, I’m hoping this will be finished this week? Okay, maybe that’s dreaming so it will probably be more like a couple of weeks.

I haven’t made as much progress on my cowl as I’d like but a bit of progress is better than none at all.  🙂

Knitting Update, Week 10, 2018

Here’s an update on my current set of priority knitting projects. Last month, I finished 2 projects on my knitting priority list.

My February socks:

and my Martine Hat:

I have 3 priority projects that I work on each day and I think 3 projects is a good number for me.  I can generally do a little bit every day on each project.  I know if I was monogamous I would get a lot done on one project and do it faster but I get bored working that long on one project.  So I get a bit done on each and I don’t get bored.  Right now those projects are:

I have prioritized 3 projects to work on each day because I have a lot of knitting WIPs and I want to get them done. I’m not very good at working on one project at a time so I try to do a little bit every day on 3 main projects.  The socks is my number one project as I’m part of a KAL (Knit A Long) and need to get the pairs of socks done within the month to enter it in a drawing.  But like I said I don’t have the wherewithal to work on just the socks so I know where I should be at each week of the month in order for me to be finished by month end.  The sweater doesn’t have a deadline but I want to get it done as I’m going to be making a Weasley sweater for each of us (my family).  I have this insane idea of taking our holiday pictures in our Weasley sweaters.  I think it will be so cute and the hubby is willing to go along with it.  I do not think that I’ll get it done for this Christmas but I’m hoping that it will be done in the next few Christmas’.  Anyway, so I need to keep working a bit on these each day and one day they will be done.  The cowl is the same in that I do not have a deadline other than I want to get it done and pushing it to #3 on my priority list means that it will get worked on regularly and it will be done one day soon.

Knitting roll call, 1/30/18

I take these pics on Saturday as it takes a bit of time to gather everything up and do it.  Then I post them on Instagram Saturday morning (assuming I can do it on Saturday morning).  So if you follow me on Instagram (@thousandneedles) you may have already seen these.  But for those of you who follow me on the blog, I do not want to leave you out so… here is all the knitting I’m working on in one place:

First, I’ve got 2 finished objects:

  1. Resfeber Socks from Knitting Expat.

2. Christmas Socks – the Mercury pattern.

3. Vanilla socks – using the minis from my Row One subscription from October, 2017. Yarn is Twisted Owl Fiber Studios.

I got the bulk of these done while at Road2CA. It was such easy knitting and I had a lot of time while I attended various lectures.  I finished the heel flap but couldn’t remember how to do the turn so I started scrappy vanilla socks #2.  I didn’t get much done on these… but now I’ve got easy knitting ready to take with me wherever I go.

4. Kayla’s Weasley Sweater – Even though this is down the list a bit, it’s actually one of the items I work on every day.  It’s a priority project!  I’ve picked up stiches on both sleeves and I’m working on both concurrently.

10. Other socks on the needles… I always have socks going on at various stages.  Resfeber was my priority sock as it’s part of a KAL (knit-a-long) and now that I’m finished with that and the Christmas socks, which was my second priority sock.  The new priority sock is Spattergroit.  It will be my priority sock until 2/1 when the next sock comes out in the Sock Collection by Mina Phillips (the Knitting Expat).  I can’t remember the collection’s name at the moment.  She’s got two going and I can only remember the Wander Lust Sock Collection which is the one that Resfeber is part of.

Dragon Pox is next.  I just finished the ribbing so it’s no longer my easy on the go knitting (scrappy vanila sock #2 took it’s place).  This is going to sit on the shelf a bit until I’m ready to tackle the pattern.

And third, is my Praire Socks.  I only casted this on because my girlfriend and I were supposed to go to knit night at a particular yarn shop that we hadn’t gone to knit night before.  We’ve purchased yarn there before but never actually went to a knit night.  So, I had to cake up yarn I had purchased and cast on a new sock so that I would be knitting on something purchased at the shop.  I know I didn’t have to do this but it makes me feel better to do this.  At least until I get to know the other knitters.  🙂 Anyway, our plans got cancelled and now this is sitting and waiting for the time we actually go to knit night at this shop.

Here are all the knitting I’m working on in one place:

  1. Resfeder Socks from Knitting Expat. I am at the point where I need to get the heels on. The goal for this week is to get through the heels and start the foot.  This is my primary project as I would like to get this done this month.  As long as I work on it each day this shouldn’t be a problem.

2. Christmas Socks – which is the Mercury pattern.  I’m almost done with these socks so the goal this week is to finish the toes, kitchener, take the final pic and finish the project on Ravelry.  This is my secondary project and is pretty much almost done.

I actually messed up the ribbing on this one but I’m just going to keep it as is.

4. Kayla’s Weasley Sweater – Even though this is 4th on the list, it’s actually the third MUST work on project.  Once I finish the Christmas Socks, this will become my secondary project… It’s getting to the point where I feel it is almost done so this will be part of the daily tasks once the Christmas socks are finished.
