Recent Warm Woolies knits
Today is my Friday. I’m tired. There’ll be no good natured joshing around here on the blog today. Maybe you just want to check out the photo and skip the rest. That’s cool with me. I feel the same way tonight.
I wanted to post this yesterday for WIP Wednesday (which I have actually never done!) but things got crazy and I just didn’t get the chance. Remember that Warm Woolies goal I had for this year? I didn’t forget! I’ve just been consistently whittling away at it and the results are rather less than spectacular. But I figured it was time for an update now that it’s February and, well, I don’t have anything else remotely interesting to share today.
As I figure it, I have to knit around 9 items per month to make my goal and so far I am woefully behind on things, what with all the weight lifting and other junk keeping me occupied. Officially, I’ve completed 5.5 items towards my goal of knitting 100 items this year for Warm Woolies but I do have a couple holdovers from last year that I’m not counting in the totals yet (a vest I got a little “creative” with that I’m not sure about, and a cardigan coat that is about 90% complete). Right now, I’ve been knitting a lot of socks and counting the pair as one item. It doesn’t seem right to count individual socks as one item each because, really, you can’t give just one sock to someone! If I get desperate later on though, my high minded ideals might just find themselves a little more bendy…..
I did find out something interesting the other day when I stopped by the site. It’s not updated frequently, but it had been updated since I’d been there last and it turns out that they’re having a contest! I didn’t know this when I set my 2008 goals for myself, but it’s a happy coincidence. Lucky for me, they need the socks that I decided to focus on too! So, I’ll be groovin’ on with the furry feet for sure ;)
