Here's my list so far:
1) strange but cool pullover 1/2 done:
2) wool pullover - have yarn, waiting for pattern:
3) Klaralund 1/2 done:
4) Oat Couture Bistro T - have yarn & pattern all ready to go (DB alpaca silk from another project) just need to swatch:
5) Oat Couture Bijoux tunic - will use stash yarn or Noro SG, have pattern: see previous link
6) Rowan's Camomille in Summer Tweed - have the yarn, waiting for pattern book to arrive:
7)Berroco's Sherri - would like to use some Noro Blossum which I have(not sure about gauge, but I think I could work it out):
8)Shawl from Fleece Artist - 2/3 done, this is the 2nd one I'm doing for me and I also did one for my MIL:

Sure looks like I'll be busy for awhile. For super portable projects, I have my scarves for gifts for next Christmas to do.

I am working on a Rosedale (I have to be the last person in the world to make this one), and hopefully will finish that before the cold weather is over. Then there's a few cotton sleeveless tops from last year that didn't fit quite right -- I need to frog those and reuse the yarn. And I'd like to make some of the cute short sleeved sweaters and the lacy cardigan from Vintage Knits.

Well, I'm in the middle of Baby Madness. Whheeeeeee.

On my needle right now are:

Baby blanket - Adaptation of the blanket in SnB.
Baby Sweater - Pattern from my LYS

In the VERY near future I'll be doing the 2nd bootie and hat to match the sweater.

These things all need to be done by March. ACK!

I am a horrible finisher of projects. I love buying new yarn, finding a pattern to go with, and starting the project so i can see what the pattern and yarn look like together. Then I like to move on....

1) cable scarf. just need to finish fringing. wash it and send it to friend
2) chevron scarf using crystal palace yarn (shimmer in white and periwinkle)
about a sixth of the way done...
3) not knit round scarf by Sally Melville..using berocco tape/ribbon yarn. needs seaming.
4) backyard leaves scarf from the book scarfstyle.

I signed up for a class to learn how to make felted clogs!!
I also want to learn how to make a sweater, as I bought the Debbie Bliss number 6 book and want to make the ribbed coat with sailor collar (i've been searching high and low for something like this!!!)

Future goals include learning how to make socks and mittens/gloves. Knitting is a great way to procrastinate from doing my school work!!!

I am knitting socks. Just finished a lace pattern using Lorna Laces, and now am knitting on "Sock It To Me" puzzle patterned yarn, making basics socks. I gave 15 pairs of socks last year to my family and they love the bright, patterned socks. I made all my socks on Opal yarns. Since I have discovered ELANN'S FOR GREAT YARN PRICES, am using that company this year. The SITM yarn is very nice to work with and half the price. Their SOLID COLORS sock yarn (new this year) is very economical (I think about 2.48/skein) and has terrific content. Anyway, that is what I am working on this year.

Hugs, Joan

I have got one gift left to finish, a hat for my brother. Other than that I am working on items for me, yippee!! An einstein coat and a pair of felted mittens (first time felting). I also have a sweater pattern picked out for myself and one for my husband as soon as my brother's hat is finished.

I'm finishing a prayer shawl for a dear friend who lost her 53 year old son due to an illness. Just the fringe left on one end and I will be done. Can't wait to give it to her. Thanks to everyone on this board for this wonderful idea.

I just finished a poncho based on the Union Square Shawl/Poncho in Weekend Knitting (just 3x3 ribbing, no baby rib) in my new favorite yarn Plymouth Outback Wool. I loved the yarn so much that I've bought a bunch more in different colors, & started the 'Babies & Bears Sweater for Grown ups' (from Cottage Creations) in a rainbow colorway. Also finishing a feather & fan "2 rectangle" poncho in Mission Falls cotton. I'm anxious to do the Clapotis, but have to decide on/save for yarn for it.

(ALL for me!!!!)
