Surmount the Stash March update

accomplished: finished booties, finish my French Socks, knit two pairs of socks including one scrappy pair, make some squares for SIBOL

nope: Christmas 2012 knitting (about 75% complete now), Lace Ribbon Scarf (about 80% complete now), acrylic baby yarn hats (not started), weave something from cotton (not started)

When I set out my goals for February I guess I forgot that it's the shortest month of the year. Maybe I was a little unrealistic in my goals. As far as last year's Christmas knitting goes, that problem with the yarn colour running dampened my enthusiasm. Never mind though, I gotta get it done! This month I think I'll just carry those unfinished goals forward for a March list that looks something like this:
  • finish Christmas 2012 knitting
  • finish Lace Ribbon Scarf
  • knit remaining acrylic baby yarn into hats
  • weave something from cotton
  • finish the Lozenge pattern socks I started on Saturday
  • knit one pair of scrappy socks

Good luck!
It is always good to be organized!
But it is not easy to meet deadlines!

February is a sneaky, bothersome month. It always seems to drag on, while simultaneously slipping by quicker than the other months. I still say you have quite a bit to show.

I think all those goals sound admirable, even if you wanted to do some of them in February.

I'm trying to work from my stash this year, as it became painfully apparent how much yarn and fiber I own as we moved first from Wisconsin to California and then from our apartment on one side of San Francisco Bay to our house on the other side of the Bay. I think I'm going to have to start selling things, too. Or something. I don't know. We'll see how things go.

Sounds pretty ambitious! But, I think you CAN DO IT!!! Can't wait to see what your scrappy socks look like.

I was kind of amazed at how much I didn't get done in February. Focusing on March and charging forward! Hope all your starts get finished.

i'm kinda glad I'm not doing an "official" surmount this year... I haven't accomplished much - but you've done great!

You are doing great! I am way behind on my stashbusting this year.
