January’s FO’s Roundup

I know…it’s out of order but I got a comment, then an email and then I was talking to a knitting buddy and decided I needed to do a January roundup too. I felt like these projects would feel neglected if I didn’t. Plus, this makes it easier at the end of the year if I want to do a full year wrap-up.
January FO's
So here’s what I finished in January (despite already sharing February’s finished projects):

Not too shabby for the beginning of the year. It looks like I’m averaging about 6 finished objects a month, which is a lot. I do have a life but I fortunately get chances to knit during the morning and evening commute when I ride in with my husband. You’d be surprised how much I can get accomplished given an hour in traffic.

I’ve been working on the Lila Top Down in the car this week and I’ve already separated the sleeves from the body. The car is the perfect place to get some endless stockinette stitch body knitting done while chatting with my husband. And my huge size 35 needles arrived so I’m hoping to whip up something fun over the weekend to be able to give to my girlfriend in Chicago. I’ve also got a scarf on bulky weight I need to whip up so I’m trying to get as much work completed on Lila so that I can actually wear it in Chicago. But I’ve got a whole week to get a lot of things done…I have faith in my hands!

Have a wonderful knitting filled weekend!

  1. I just like the almost comparison pics of you and Maddie. You both look so happy to have a handmade sweater…

    1. I was so tickled when her mom sent me that picture because I don’t think she had seen my pic with my hands up in the air 🙂

      1. Yay for handknits!

        Love that! Maddie definitely has the right attitude! 😀
        I just saw a pattern on Ravelry that made me think of your Wild One…. Veera Välimäki’s Breathing Space.

      2. I just saw that pattern the other day but it’s fingering weight (shudders) and I don’t know if I can handle tiny needles for that big of a project. But I won’t say never.

  2. U rock! DWJ u are an awesome knitting diva! I can’t wait to see what March will bring 🙂

  3. Wow! I love the green and the texture of your Blizzard jacket. I think I need to carve out some more knitting times in the morning for myself. I can’t wait to see what projects you finish in March!
