Looking back at the first 3 months of the year, I made much better progress on my knitting than on any other projects. I blame this partially on the cold cold weather – my basement sewing studio gets really cold in the winter (I keep a space heater on set to 58F but when I accidentally had it off for a day it got down to 50, even though we keep our house at 68-70). So when I want to sew I need to remember to go downstairs and turn up the space heater a few hours beforehand. Most nights it was much more tempting to snuggle on the couch with Gregg and knit.
I blogged about Gregg’s Watchtower Socks but I did finish a few other projects. All yarn/pattern details can be found on Ravelry:
Mike’s Muffler – this was one of my goals for the Q1 FAL from Adrianne at On the Windy Side, and I’m pleased to say I finished it juuuust in time to mail off to sunny SoCal. My FIL is very pleased with it!
Lala’s Wurm – made with the yarn I received for finishing Gregg’s socks before Feb 14; the superwash yarn grew when blocking and so my first hat turned out way too big so I ripped it out and reknit it with fewer stitches cast on. I’m happy with the finished project and glad I re-did it. But I probably should post a photo!
Juniper Sage Hickory – another Q1 FAL goal done and another pair of socks for me! I’m really pleased with how they came out, I’ve already worn them a few times.
Rainbow Leg Warmers – another Q1 FAL goal, also a birthday gift for my niece (who conveniently had a rainbow-themed birthday party). Arrived in time for the actual birthday and my SIL reports she wore them to bed that night
I’ve also started another pair of socks, the goal is to finish and give them to my mom for Mother’s Day (a tradition I’ve done nearly every year since I started knitting socks). And I do have some other knitting plans but I’ll include the rest in my post for the Q2 FAL.
