Elizabeth's April Wrap-up

I feel like April was a huge success. Three FO's and my Q2 Challenge item well under-way! I finished three of the five items on my gift list for April. I really enjoyed reading about everyone else's Q2 challenges as well! See my May list coming soon for more details on mine ^_^


Gift Item:
Thermal (ravelry)

Recipient: Myself
Occasion: Because I haven't knit anything for myself in awhile and thought I was due
Deadline: Finished!

Gift Item: Cabled Fingerless Armwarmers (personal pattern) (ravelry) by Elizabeth Martin

Recipient: Anna
Occasion: Belated birthday
Completed: April 16, 2008

Yarn: 1.25 skeins of Knit Picks Essential in Grass
