My Knitting List

Knit from the Queue #1 Finished

My running hat is done!  I finished it last night during the Packer's game.


I quickly cast on a cowl which my cousin asked me to knit.  I am hoping to get it done by Jan. 15 which is when the MadTosh SAL (stitch-along) starts.  I am going to double-dip on that one and work on another hat that will count for the SAL and The Loopy Ewe's 1st Quarter Challenge.  The 1st Quarter Challenge requires that you use one skein (or less) of yarn and use a pattern with cables in it.

On the not-so good side, I ended up ordering more than just the challenge yarn.  I needed to get free shipping after all.  So my goal of not adding to my yarn stash isn't going so great.....but all the yarn is for projects in my queue so that makes it alright, right?!?!

Since you confessed, I will too. I ordered 5 skeins of fingering yarn at the weekend. In my defense they were planned from Dec when I decided that I wanted to try my hand at colourwork design this year. I just didn't need to cave right now because I can't start them yet.
Sigh. Shall we try again? :)

Stop signing up for things that require you to order new yarn! Or just use yarn from your Stash! You goofs! Lol

Great job on the finish!!
