January Update / February Goals

I've finished all of my January items for this month. I've completed the Baby Shower Gift as of today, but I changed some of the items. I couldn't find a baby bootie pattern that I liked, so I nixed those, and I don't feel like knitting a bib, so the set is just the hat, cardi, and a wash cloth.

Here are the hat & cardi, complete w/ buttons!
Baby Set (Hat & Cardi)


I also finished an item for the Q1 Challenge... the Rowan Tapestry Scarf. It's probably going to be a Christmas present for a co-worker or somebody.
FO: One Skein Rowan Tapestry Scarf


I updated the list, and now I only have one goal for January. To finish a pair of socks for myself. They were my traveling socks during Thanksgiving, and I had to set them down in favor of Christmas Knitting & then Gift Knitting. My gift to myself in February is to finish them! If I finish them, my next goal is to finish Callie (not currently listed) for myself as she was also set down in favor of Christmas Knitting.

I'm also making some very nice progress on Dina's Socks & I hope to have them done soon. I've been in an easy stockinette-in-the-round frame of mind, and I'm so happy that I'm knitting them 2 at a time. lol. :)

Darling baby set... what's the pattern?

Manda said...

thanks, vegas!

javanut - the baby cardigan is the "essential baby cardigan" by lisa henderson, and the baby hat is the "simple hat (with eyelets)" by Katherine Vaughan, except I did it w/o the eyelets, lol. :)
