I finished one scarf. That would be the Branching Out that I just finished and it would be for me!
I finished nine pairs of socks. A pair of Monkeys for my personal trainer, Monkey peds for me, Wild Kat peds for me, Monkeys for my Sockapalooza pal*, Chevron socks for me, Queen Kahuna peds for me, Anastasia socks for me, Feather and Fan socks for me, and Jaywalkers for me. Yes, in case you were counting, that is seven pairs of socks for me and two for others. I like knitting socks. Socks that I can wear.
I finished one shawl. A fringy shawl. I've worn it once. I love shawls but I'm not exactly sure when to wear them.
I also finished one square for a baby blanket.
I have three items sitting unfinished. The Argosy scarf which I am currently working on and then, well, then there are my kangaroo duo sweater and the Ronald McDonald looking Jaywalkers. Two UFOs in the most UFO kind of way.
I haven't exactly been burning up the needles, but then again, I did finish an average of one item a month. If I was to have a knitting goal, I suspect it would be to knit more, like maybe an average of 1.5 items per month. Not much of a goal, but a goal nonetheless. I'm not foolish enough to say "Goal: Finish the Kangaroo Duo Sweater," though that would be an admirable goal. And, I really would like to wear it. Maybe I will try to knock it out once I finish Argosy. I have a few more of the middle repeats and then I think it will be time to do the bottom decreasing repeats so Argosy's end is near.
If I wasn't a bit
*Speaking of Sockapalooza, there is a rumor going around that Sockapalooza 5 will be coming up soon! This excites me. I kind of think as Sockapalooza as charity knitting with instant karma mixed in ... you are 'charity knitting' a pair of socks for some random person but the karma is instant because BAM you get your own pair of knitted socks at around the same time. Your pal doesn't come through? Well obviously you did something to muddy your karma. I am sure many people will find this definition of charity abhorrent and to them I say, pooh! Pooh! Yah, yah, I hear you, you don't knit for charity so that you can get something in return (which I think is a lie, you are getting something in return, even if it is smug satisfaction for doing something nice). Whatever!
