ALYOF May Goal

04 May

Since I actually completed my April goal it’s time to pick a new one!

My May goal for ALYOF – Rainbow Road!

I know I won’t have time to finish before Mother’s Day but my goal is to finish my Rainbow Road table runner. I did get the curves all pieced together, but I still need to make my quilt sandwich, quilt it, and then do my binding. There is no way I will finish in time to ship it to CA before Mother’s Day but hopefully I can finish and get it in the mail by the end of the month.



And while I know it won’t count towards ALYOF, I also want to finish the pair of socks I started for my mom for Mother’s Day – I have the first sock done and I’m a few repeats into the cuff of the second sock. Sadly I’m not working on it tonight because I forgot it at work – the end of the day got kind of crazy and we had dinner plans so I forgot it in my rush to get out the door before it was too late. Oops!

I’d like to finish by Mother’s Day but I won’t be upset if I don’t – I’ve knitted socks for my mom nearly every year since I started knitting, but most years I bring over a couple of sock yarns from my stash and have her pick the yarn and pattern on Mother’s Day so I’m already ahead of the game!
