Success!  I'm midway through clue 3 and kinda want to have it finished before the Knitters' Fair on September 10.  So, despite having started a poncho for this winter, I'm now working exclusively (let's hope) on my GoM.

September Goals:  Finish Girdle of Melian by the 10th.

I finished my GoM a week after the Fair, but it is finished!  Just working on the poncho, but I'm sure I'll find something else to start, like usual.

There's a cowl I want to knit, and I bought a really nice skein of madelinetosh at the Fair so I'm sure it's only a matter of time before I find out what it wants to be.

October Goals:  Finish raglan increases on the poncho and maybe work a few rows on that sock.
