2 more days

Until Spring Break. I think I can, I think I can.

Nothing like waiting until almost the ides to post the goals for the month, eh?

February pretty much sucked for the knitting - let's take a look.
February Goals:
Knit at least 8 panels of Log Cabin Blanket (take on retreat) - NOT DONE
Finish fingerless gloves for hubbo DONE

Finish Child's First socks ONE DONE
Finish at least one peppermint sock ONE 3/4 DONE

Work on Icarus (get through the repeats of chart 1) ONE MORE REPEAT TO GO
Work on Rogue (up to the armholes?) NOT TOUCHED

I'm hopeful that with 10 days of Spring Break coming up I can get most of this done. Don't laugh too hard.

I've also got my yarn wound and I need to grab some needles to get ready for SOCK MADNESS!! The only hope I have is to make it through round one, since it will be spring break. Fingers crossed.

With all this upcoming time off I hope to take some pictures of WIPs for you, and do an update of where things are. Right after I spring clean the house, put in a garden, do something about the muddy patches in the back yard, plant flowers in the front of the house, purge the closets, purge the bookshelves, clean out the garage, reorganize the study, learn to quilt and clean up the knitting corner. Just a few things on my to-do list.


  1. Don't forget at least one day to just relax!

  2. Wait, is Sock Madness even on your March goals???

  3. Oh, gosh. Hang in there!! Break is coming soon!

  4. Lol! You're a stitch. :) Har har...

    And I just made my first two quilts!!! Okay, baby quilts, but I am tacking down the final section of binding on the 2nd one (the bit you have to hand sew) and then I am done!

    Spring Break! Spring Break!

    LAUGHING SO HARD I'm about to wet my pants.... can't wait to hear how spring break really goes.... you are precious.

  6. Yay! We made it to Spring Break.

    Your idea of a sucky month and mine are completely different. It sounds to me like you got a lot of stuff completeld during February. All I did was cast on and then unravel over and over again.
