January Progress Report

After staying in the house with Charlotte for almost a week due to the weather, I was feeling really antsy today. Mike offered to take me whereever I wanted, so we checked out a new - to me -LYS. I know I'm on a diet, but I figured I could pick up a pattern book. All I could find were store copies of the books I liked, so no new book. The best thing about the store was the very lovely yarn. I almost broke down and bought just one ball of Kureyon for a hat, but Mike was kind enough to point out that I've almost made it a month without buying yarn, and I only have one more month to go. Maybe the no yarn will power left me looking dazed and confused because the store associates both encouraged me to sign up for a beginner's knitting class. I did learn my lesson - no more yarn stores during the diet. I already feel out of sorts from yarn purchase withdrawal, no need to make it worse. I just need to see some progress in my current projects, so that the input - new yarn - is more in line with my output - FOs.
Well, it's the last day of January, and this month I finished my socks, Charlotte's socks, and my featured UFO - Charlotte's jacket. Left hanging on the needles are the gloves for my husband and brother, the Guidepost sweater, and the Weekend sweater. Joining these guys on my to do list for February are four squares for the Warm Up America project, some Valentine's Day socks for Charlotte, the short-sleeved ribbed lace sweater from Vintage Knits, and the new UFO of the month - Charlotte's blue sweater from the Debbie Bliss Knitting Workbook. I started this project on September 17th of last year; check the archives for a picture and information. I realize that's a lot on the list, so we'll see how far I get. The socks and gloves are the only deadline items.

omg. such willpower! A husband who is willing to take you to the yarn store and be helpful...whoa! He's a keeper! You are making great progress on the to be done list...inspiring me! :)

Wow, I can't believe that you didn't buy any yarn! Good for you! I have no willpower in yarn shops!

You have so many projects for February, I'm impressed. I guess you'll have a lot of knitting time if the weather keeps up like it has been!

You have more willpower in an LYS than I do! Sounds like January was a busy knitting month for you, good work!

Wow......... what restraint at the LYS. I've got not such strength.

I like your progress list and plan for the month. That's a good way to keep track of things and set goals. I'm a big listmaker.

Hope you get lots done in February.
