Progress...of a sort.

Some of you may recall that I signed up for Stashalong on January 1st. Well. It has been nearly 3 months and here is how far I have gotten.

1)Sizzle: DONE - even though it didn't fit : -(

2) Anemoi Mitts: 1 DONE

3) Baby Blanket: No progress

4) Shae's Darling coat: DONE

** 5) My stinkin' Noro hat already - Since the weather has changed I am going to switch this winter project out with 4 dishcloths: 2 DONE

6) Severus Snape Socks: 1 DONE

7) Mary Janes: DONE

8) Absorba the Great: DONE

9) The felted Oregon Tote that kickstarted my knitting frenzy 4 (I think) years ago: Felting as I write!! so...DONE

**10) The project that started the Blog: The Ravenclaw Raglan. WILL NOT BE FINISHED - does not even begin to fit so I will choose a different UFO
I am going to switch this out with socks 3 pairs as I have a LOT of sock yarn: 1 out of 6 DONE
(this might seem like an uneven switch - but actually the only thing left to do on the RRaglan was to attach the sleeves and knit the shoulders/neckline - total bummer)

11) Bejewelled: No progress

12) Purple Roving Scarf: DONE

13) Le Slouch: DONE

14) Uniscarfity: DONE

15) Surprise Baby Gift: 1/3 done


I have 1 strike at this time - which is fairly impressive for me!
I think this has been a great excercise in self-restraint for me...but I am not sure if it is something I want to do again!
Next time I am going to choose a method that allows me some free shopping days. This has been much more difficult than I anticipated - but has saved me money!
:-D

As it stands I have: 1 mitt, 1 baby blanket, 2 dishcloths, 6 individual socks, 1 scarf and 1 baby gift to go.
Or: 10 items before I can buy some yarn.
Aaaarrrghhh. Just when I thought I was close to home free!

The socks will be perfect for PS2 since I had decided that I would dye sock yarn in each sections colours. Now I just have to get back into my socks. Shouldn't be too hard.


ETA: Friends of another knitblogger lost their child in an accident last week. If you would like to help make a square for a comfort blanket please visit YarnIt.

Wow! That's a lot of knitting over two and a half months!

I've discovered that selecting the yarn from my stash that I need extra balls of in order to make the project I have in mind is a great way to get a small yarn-buying fix.

You are looking mighty impressive Miss Scarlett - that's some serious knitting!

BTW even though I clearly have been out of touch, the new look of your blog looks really excellent!

I am in awe of your resolve and project list! You must feel great about this! Oh, and Cynthia's little hamster-knitting icon just made my day.

You've done quite a bit in just 3 mo! I admire your resolve. I don't even attempt to refrain from buying yarn!
