So this has been a dismal month for the knitting. Hopefully November will bring more time and commitment. So the deets:
453 yards 2 skeins
130 yards 1 skein
So I was ahead 323 yards and 1 skein. While not great, at least it wasn’t to the negative.
Knit Out: 11,193 yards 59 skeins
Destashed: 2085 yards 18 skeins
Bought In: 9805 yards 44 skeins
So that puts me ahead 3,473 yards and 33 skeins.
Now, to revisit the goals I set for October. How well did I fail? Big time!
- FINISH THAT BABY SWEATER!
- START THAT ROBIN HOOD!
- WORK AT LEAST 1 ROW ON MY SWEATER VEST!
OK, so 1 item out of 3, the baby sweater is done. But not one stitch on the vest, and no start on Robin Hood. Gah! I suck so good, or bad, or whatever.
Now, November Goals, do I dare?
- Start on Vivien’s sweater using this pattern.
- Work on that vest!
- More bunny butt hats, deadline is Christmas!
- Maybe look at Robin Hood?
That’s enough. November should be better since I will be more stationary than I have been in October. Florida trip and Camping wth friends but into my time at home. Yes, I could have been knitting at either of those events, but the desire just wasn’t there. Today is knitting with buds, back in town for a few days so you bet I am joining the gang! I will be working on the mittens for one of the gals. It’s her birthday gift, so must get them done. And I need her to try them on to make sure the thumb is deep enough so I can go on to the hand. And measure her thumb depth so I can work on that while away. I will be back in 2 weeks, so by then I might be ready to finish off the thumbs.
Now off you go to see what other’s have been Yarning Along this week.
