Sweet.  The Newborn Vertebrae is finished!  I may still have to block it ... had a tiny moth scare (in the form of yarn breakage) but I think it's ok to bring into the apartment now.  I am halfway through clue 3 of the MKAL, so half-completed that goal.  I started some baby mittens for a friend, and I figure I'll finish them tonight during our WvW raid.

October Goals:  Finish those mitts and the Lanthir Lamath scarf (by the way, the yarn I bought almost perfectly matches!).

Goals completed!  For once, eh?  Scarf is blocked, mitts are given, and I've also finished the knitting part of the Hooded Baby Skyrim Sweater.  I'm gonna line it with some flannel for some extra warmth and to keep little fingers away from the intarsia backside.

November Goals:  Finish the hat I started yesterday, and the second sleeve of the Noro/Patons sweater.  And the lining of the Skyrim sweater.  Oh, and start armwarmers for Christmas.
