March, in like a lion, and out with bags of fleece

Good morning All! I had great success in February, and achieved almost all of my goals. Here are a few images of my successes.

1. I had hoped to complete one Custodian Hat for Christmas 2008. I finished three.



2. I had originally planned on making Carol a knit and felted hat, but the yarn was not speaking to me. That is, until I changed the plan, and made this instead.



3. I also finished the much overdue children's sweaters. The image is of one of the sweaters (they are identical other than size). I used 1824 cotton, and the pattern is in the Green Mountain Spinnery Book.



So, five finished items for February, yeah! I continued working along on my dad's vest, and have most of the back completed. I have had to "try" it on him a few times because he is quite tall.

Now, my list for March.

1. Complete Dad's vest.
2. Make a lace wash cloth for my sister for June (giving birth to baby #2).
3. Knit and felt a small purse for myself.
4. Make knitted silk eye pillows, two of them for Christmas 2008.
5. Knit woodsman's socks for husband, a just because gift.

My March will be going out with bags of fleece, as my sheep are scheduled to be sheared at the end of the month. I am sure that my April goals will include scouring fleece.
