Goals for Janauary and the first FO!

FO before business:

Pattern: Wicked by the gals at Zephyr Style
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted - just a smidge over 4 skeins
Needles: Sz 9 Clover Bamboo circular and Chiagoo DPNs
Dates: October 2007-January 1, 2008
Mods: I improvised 3/4 sleeves after seeing other cute ones on Ravelry.
Thoughts: Cute! The yarn is wonderful - super soft and squishy. I love the simplicity of the pattern - it really works in a shaded yarn like this.
Best thing about this project? I love it and it is super wearable.

I had tried to finish this up New Year's Eve, but I was too tired to finish. So it was the first FO of 2008. I have another sweater that only lacks seaming, and a felted object that is drying, so a few more FOs will be coming soon.

Down to business:

January Goals:
Finish Wicked (already done!)
Seam Bow-knot cardigan
Finish Hedgehog
Finish Snowy Triangle Scarf
Finish Noro Scarf
Finish Monkey Socks
Finish Zuluknitty socks
Knit 8 panels of Log Cabin Blanket
Finish back of Bristow, start fronts.
Finish back of Cambridge jacket, start fronts.
Finish back of Salina, start front or sleeve.
Finish 2 mystery knits.
Knit hat for hubbo
Knit hat for hubbo's friend
Knit fingerless gloves for hubbo
Start Rogue
Finish one Embossed Leaves sock
Finish one Child's First sock
Finish one of hubbo's ribbed socks

That seems like a lot, but I'm a good portion of the way done with a few of these (the benefit to publish the list 4 days after I've written it), and some are not as much work as they might appear. I also need to put away the Christmas decorations, but I'll get that done sometime. OK - off to get some of this done! Have a great weekend - I may pop in with a FO or two - we'll see how it goes!


  1. What a cute sweater - it looks SO soft!

  2. Most of my 2008 goals start with the word Finish too! Wicked turned out great. I like the 3/4 length sleeves.

  3. Nice sweater. I really like the green color. Good luck with finishing your list.

  4. Great way to start off. Love the color! and Malabrigo:)

  5. Ooo, a Wicked in Malabrigo! How wonderful! It looks great on you.

  6. Looks great on you - and you're off to a great start!

  7. Wicked is BEAUTIFUL - that lovely shaded green Malabrigo looks so soft and comfy!
