Summer Knitting

So you mean I am supposed to document all of my knitting goals for the summer and actually stick to them?? Ali over at Skeins Her Way started a contest for her Fitted Tank. All you have to do is go here and enter. Also, let Ali know that you came over from my blog so I can get in on the action! That Tank would look great in red!! So here goes, I hope I don’t embarrass myself and actually finish what I start.

My summer Knitting List:

  1. Cast on and finish Freesia Socks.
  2. Finish Scrappy Hat
  3. Finish Dream Swatch
  4. Finish Sheldon!! All he needs is legs.
  5. Finish Zeeby’s bag. It has taken way, way too long. I started it when I wanted to learn to knit since it is mostly boring stockinette stitch.
  6. Knit a pair of Jaywalkers
  7. Score some Yarn Pirate and Yarntini. I keep missing them!
  8. Buy “Last Minute Knitted Gifts” by Joelle Hoverson
  9. Find Yarn and cast on the Hourglass Sweater from “Last Minute Knitted Gifts”
  10. Buy “Knitting Vintage Socks” by Nancy Bush.
  11. Cast on Childs First Socks from “Knitting Vintage Socks”
  12. Buy “Favorite Socks” by Ann Bud and Anne Merrow
  13. Find Yarn and cast on Ballet Camisole

I think I have enough for now on my list. I cast on my Freesia Socks last night. I just love this yarn! I tried to do toe up but I didn’t like my toe so I frogged it. I decided to knit my Jaywalker's top down and just follow the pattern. I will have pictures soon when there is some progress.

And now, a random picture. This is me and the hubby on our honeymoon trip to Florida. A couple weeks after our wedding we packed all of our stuff into a 97’ Accord and drove East hoping for the best. It definitely was a great decision!

Wow is it really Thursday??

Great list! And no, you don't have to finish it... use your list as a guide.
Happy knitting-
