Here we are on the last day of February, and I can mark another month as a total success. Here are my XLVIII Champs* socks.
These were cast on out of Hometeam Football on the first of the month, and finished on the 21st. Win!
The shawl knitting went very smoothly. I'm in a chart that isn't very complicated, it just takes time to complete each round. Luckily with the handy spreadsheet I found, I know exactly what round I have to get through for each month and that makes the slog of the current chart very manageable.
I did not get any progress made on the sweater this month. Sweater knitting has been interrupted by the news that a friend is expecting a baby! This is the second child in the family, so the blanket that has been started is similar to big brother's blankie from a couple of years ago. Here is a preview...
Overall, I am finding the specific goals to be working well for me. It has also given me a new outlook on starting new projects and a much more realistic view of my knitting time.
