Checking projects off my list

Well, I am sticking to my guns and trying to finish off some projects. I haven't started on anything new (except for my dishcloth KAL's) and don't plan on doing that until after the first of the year.

I finished my Multiplicity Scarf. This was a fun knit. It knit up quickly using size 13 needles and the yarn did the work. I only had to use two skeins. It got quite long and I think I will give this to my husband as a Christmas present.

I also completed the November Mid-Month KAL. It's called Tina's knit Angel Dishcloth. This was also a quick knit. I used Peaches and Creme yarn in Cream with a size 7 needle. I would change how I attached the head to the body, but except for that I thought it was really nice.

Another quick project I completed was the Big Softie Cowl. I finished it and found a mistake so I threw it away since it was so hard to tear out after sewing the ends in. I discovered that I was using a size 13 needle and it was suppose to be a 15. So, there was a reason to start over. I finished this today. The yarn is very soft. I guess that is why it's called Big Softie yarn.

I am almost finished with the last pair of socks that I am knitting for the year. The yarn is Punta merisock in color HP68. I am using size 1.5 needles. I should be able to finish it off this week.

I'm still finding yarn to buy. From the Loopy Ewe I got the following:

From left to right: Madelinetosh - Tosh sock in the Cedar colorway, Mackintosh Iona fingering in the Taurus colorway, Sweet Georgia Tough Love sock in Lakeshore Drive and Rainforest.

Also, Monkeypal in the colorway Violets Revenge and Madelinetosh worsted yarn to make the Mara shawl in the Oxblood colorway.

Last but not least from the Loopy Ewe is Madelinetosh tosh sock in Lichen 2 colorway.

The Knitter's Edge had Sidar Big Softie on sale, so I got several skeins to make scarves, a hat and cowls in Black, Red, White, and Purple. This yarn knits up fast.

Well off to start finishing another project. I think I will try and finish off my prayer shawl this week in addition to my punta sock. I am on a roll and don't want to stop. Three projects finished and 19 more to go.

Great job fishing those old projects. I am trying not to CO anything new either, but do have some Christmas presents to make!
