Housekeeping

I'm trying to clean out my UFO's - so far, I finished my Cloudy Day.  I haven't taken any pictures because, quite frankly, I'm tired.



Now, I'm on to my Koguchi shawl.  I've also been thinking about Christmas.  I know - it's 10 months away, give or take a few weeks, and I want to knit presents.  I want to knit a lot of presents.  My main present this year: socks.  I've picked out patterns for just about everyone, and I started collecting the yarn.  I have 4 out of 10.  Not a bad start.  So, here's a list of the ones I've picked out so far:


Earl Grey

Java Socks

Jaywalker

Hermione's Everyday Socks

Vanilla Latte

Socks on a Plane

Nutkin
I found a new shipment of Madelinetosh sock at The Whole Nine Yarns last night, and so 2 skeins are for the socks.  I found another skein of sock yarn that was a perfect color for one other person, so it came home with me too.  I have to go stash diving and find some sock yarn purchased years ago for another pair.  That should keep me busy for a while.  This month, I'm trying to clean out some WIP, and then I'm going to start a summer sweater knit-a-long (if you'd like to join me, drop me a line!) in May.  I figure if I go from May 1st to September 30, I should not only get some socks knocked out, but a few sweaters as well.  At least I hope so.  There are 3 sweaters for the kids to make, and some toys too.  I'd like a mostly handmade Christmas this year.  We'll see how that goes.
