Last updates!

Jess is nearing the finish line on her Zig Zag sweater! Go cheer her on as she reaches for that gold medal!

Sherrill finished up a two year old UFO this week! And they are so cute!

Aria is still getting settled into her new digs!

Theresa is ohsoclose to finishing up Am Kamin in time for her gold medal! Go Theresa!

Tara is waiting for the yarn to arrive to finish her Olympic Knitting. And she's my pal for the Project Spectrum Postcard Swap!

Chris started a ribby cardi! I'm sure, with her rate of speed she'll finish it next week!

Laura finished up a very colorful pair of socks!

Erica is still working on Olympia!

E is still gathering her thoughts after vacation!

Julie's finished object this week is a gift, but they're so pretty! Go see!

And I've been knitting - sock one is done and sock two has a heel turned. The first Ribby Cardi sleeve is done too! I managed to power through all that ribbing tonight as we caught up on this season of 24. My camera battery is dead, so pictures tomorrow.

It's the final day for our "Not a Gift" KAL. I want to thank y'all so much for knitting along with me! If you're recently joining us, I decided after all my gift knitting for the holidays, I need some goodies for myself! And I encouraged y'all to knit along with me. I've had a great time "meeting" new people through the KAL and being inspired by your projects!

After all this is said, however, I came across this a few days ago and I've been stuck on it for a while now.

Annie is taking time during Lent to knit for others. Not all her knitting, but about half. I'd really like to do more charity knitting this year, and I think this would be a good way to keep me on track. I plan to knit up some baby hats for the preemies at the local hospital and some other kid/adult sized hats for the local shelters. It doesn't get very cold here, or stay cold for very long, but when it does, it usually hits the homeless hardest, as we are not prepared for it to be that cold. Hopefully some of my items will warm some heads and hearts next winter. I'll be going through the stash tomorrow to see what I've got to use up, I'll keep you posted!


  1. Thanks so much for all your hard work hostessing this awesome KAL, Jenn!! You did such a great job with all of the updates and it was inspiring to see everyone's projects, too. 40 Days for Others sounds like a wonderful project...I'm going to hop over now and check out the details. What a great cause. Take care and have a great weekend! :-)
