Surmount the Stash February update


Looking back, I had a productive January but with a half done scarf, some unfinished Christmas knitting and a second sock still on the needles, I didn't finish as much as I'd hoped. Blame it on the Bootie pattern. For the last couple of weeks I've been completely sidetracked with them. I did finish my Ringwood socks and fingerless gloves for Gavin. Not to mention half a dozen pairs of Baby Moc-A-Socs.

It's not just the cuteness that's got me obsessed; it's the perfect pattern for using up baby yarn and sock yarn scraps. With six pairs done and two more pairs awaiting cuffs, I can happily announce that I've knit through every last inch of superwash wool baby yarn. Now THAT feels like progress.

Which leads me to my goals for February:
 • finish the booties, finish the scarf, finish my Christmas knitting and finish my French sock
 • knit at least two pairs of socks, including at least one from scraps
 • knit a couple of baby hats to use up every last bit of acrylic baby yarn
 • weave something from cotton
 • make a square or two from acrylic worsted scraps for SIBOL
