February Update

Current WIPs (new ones are bolded):


Wispy Cardi, Malabrigo Lace
Rosemary Cardigan, Cascade 220 Heathers (not technically new, as I started it in August)
Hooded Baby Skyrim Sweater, Patons Roving (out of yarn)
Newborn Vertebrae, Wollmeise "Pure" 100% Merino Superwash
Quivira Coat, Patons Classic Merino Wool


Orchid Thief, Classic Elite Yarns Alpaca Sox (hibernating - ran out of yarn four rows from the end)

Hands and Feet:

Toe-up Socks, Zauberball (on a 9-inch circular)
2aat Toe-up Socks, Some yarn that my husband bought and that I'll look up later


Snowflake Blanket, Red Heart Comfort Solids


Tentaculum, Marks and Kattens Fame Trend (will be frogged ... when it stops hiding)

Lanthir Lamath, Handspun from Ireland (out of yarn)
Clapotis, Patons Classic Wool


Forester Hat, Debbie Bliss Merino DK

Um.  Right.  I did finish the gloves and I have been working on the Lanthir Lamath scarf, but I also started another three projects, so I'd say I've made absolutely no progress.

So.  February goals.  Complete the hood section of the Lanthir Lamath scarf.  I'm almost half-way through, so this should be do-able.  Also, I haven't bought yarn since early December.

I finished most of the hood section early in the month, and then promptly ran out of (handspun from Ireland!) yarn.  I'm going to a yarn store tomorrow morning to see if I can find a close replica.  Mary Maxim had nothing close.  Also, I made good progress on the hat!  So I don't consider this month's goal to be completely lost.

March goals:  Keep looking for a replacement yarn.  If one is found, finish the bloody scarf.  Until one is found, work on the hat (and finish it, too, maybe ...).
