Forester Hat, Debbie Bliss Merino DK (finished in March)
Quaggan, Loops & Threads Charisma

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 ...).

So, still no luck on a replacement yarn, though I did try to get to Romni Wools last Saturday (the Gardiner Expressway was closed and the traffic on the streets was just too much).  I'll try again next week.

Successfully completed two projects in March, but in April I mainly focused on the Quaggan hat (it's for a friend).  It's almost done, which bring me to ...

May goals:  Finish the Quaggan hat, the Old Flames Scarf, and decide what I'm gonna do with the Wispy Cardi (continue or frog).
