My last post had a boatload of over ambitousness on my part that I'm really trying to fufill. Here's a picture of the first one - the Ella Rae T-Shirt sweater.
Ella Rae TShirt Sweater
Yarn - Atacama, color 500 8 skeins
I made the longer version, with the shorter sleeves
Started October (?) finished January 11, 2008
Love it! Really quick knit, nothing fancy which is what I was after. I really like it over a white oxford shirt with the sleeves rolled up and the tails of the shirt sticking out.
More pictures later - time to head out to work!

So, I thought I should write down my plans/goals for knitting this year. As you will see from my list, I tend to try and be an overachiever. Note, I said try to be, not that I actually am. So here goes.
To start this off, I have a lot of yarn. I really have a lot of yarn. Maybe not as much as alot of people out there, but still. I have decided for my own sanity, I'm not going to buy much yarn (although it's okay to buy at Madrona, of course!) this year until I get some of my projects done and some of the stash whittled down. So I plan to try and get one to two sweaters done per month. That won't take care of any of my laceweight or fingering weight, but that's okay.
January - Ella Rae TShirt Sweater in Atacama yarn, color 500. Done 1/11/08
Ruth's Kauni Cardigan
Cabled poncho for Sara in Plymouth Baby Grande Alpaca ,in dark green. Done 1/16/08
1 row of Pi Shawl per day. I started this with Naomi on January 1st. More later.
February - Peace Fleece Everyday Cardigan. Yes, I already did this in August 2007. More on this later too.
Aran sweater that was started 4 years ago. Just get it done already!
7 washcloths for Sara for her birthday. Cute cotton ones, one for each day of the week -(these will be for her birthday in March)
March - Lavold Margery Sweater in Silky Tweed
Hourglass sweater from Last Minute Knitted gifts in some yarn from Elann
April - Top down sweater out of my homespun (Spinderella's Thrums)
May - Lavold Hempathy top in orange - don't remember the name right now, doesn't matter right now
A Louet top in purple. All I remember about this pattern is that Naomi has it and it was purchased last LYS tour at churchmouse.
June - Another Lavold Hempathy top in Blue
A Louet top in a pretty blue and green tweed
July - Hand dye some knitpicks yarn I have for a new rogue (to replace the one that got shrunkified)
I have some Hemp6 but I can't remember which top, but they also came out with another top that I think I like even better.
August - Top down sweater in pink (moscow magic pink) Peace Fleece
Huh, I really thought I had this planned out through September, so that will give more more room to plan. I really think I'll be plenty busy!
