Summer Knitting Goals

I am a huge fan of lists. This is probably why I have a "hard copy" planner in addition to my PDA from work and why I document everything I feel I need to do in both places (sometimes I love MS Outlook. Until it flips out on me - then my love is diminished)

So when I saw the Summer Knitting Goals on Dim Sum Knitting, well, I had to join in. Extra motivation because there is a contest, hosted by Skeins Her Way in this post. Head over and sign up, and be sure to let her know you jumped from my blog if you do.

So, without further ado, my summer knitting goals:

1. Finish Wicker and the Hourglass Sweater - the 2 languishing sweaters I've started. I know it's summer and I should knit summery things, but these 2 need to get finished.
2. Make another Razor Cami. I have some Rowan Wool Cotton and some Debbie Bliss Wool Cotton (BSK, how I love your sale) that could be used, it's just a matter of choosing.
3. Finish all those socks that are taking up my dpns - Trekking, knee socks, manly socks, Jaywalkers...I'm probably forgetting a few. Since I joined Summer of Socks, this is pretty appropriate.
4. This may be overshooting my abilities - the mitered blanket from Mason-Dixon Knitting. We shall see....

I'm so glad I could convince you to join me in my madness. Anything for free yarn! Good luck reaching your goals.

I love lists too. I find that making them helps to settle my whirlwind thoughts. Now I just need to figure out what my summer knitting goals will be.

I'm a list geek too, and I feel you about Outlook. It's a love/hate thing. Try Google calendar and see if you like it!

Thanks for your comment on my blog!!

If you don't accomplish #4, it will have nothing to do with your abilities. You're just setting challenging stretch goals.
