Chuggin`Out the Knits

Well, February is almost gone (except for that blessed extra day we get this year! - which, unfortunately lands on a Wednesday - but I'm going to make up for it by enjoying a day full of exactly what I would want to do if I had an extra day, sometime in the future.

In the meantime, I finally am blogging this month - so much has happened.

Let's start with January goals from my last post:

Before Jan 30th, complete my last Christmas present, the Fiddleheads:

Done! Emilia loves them, especially the pop of pink on the inside:

Pattern: Fiddlehead Mittens
Ravelry Link: Emilia`s Fiddleheads
Outer Mitten Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Melange in Teal and Grey
Inner Mitten Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Brushed Suri in Lollipop

2) Start and complete 2 baby shower gifts for Kim and Arshdeep:

I did! (although it was after Jan 30th) - I completed these cutie Owlie Hats, one for each:

Pattern: Owlie Hat
Ravelry Link: 2 Owlie Hats
Yarn: Springtree Road Philomath Worsted in Tannis

My first time at embroidering - but the owls look cute!

I hope they really like them, and they get to wear them once or twice!

3) Knit my way through 9 Months of Knitting:

I haven't started yet, but I can't wait to make the I Heart Rainbows Hat and Sweater out of this gorgeous sock yarn purchased in Tofino:
4) Knit 6 items using my stash - and this means stash previously acquired prior to Jan. 1st 2012:

Item No. 1 complete: Samantha the Sock Monster from my purple and yellow Cascade 220!

Pattern: Sammie the Sock Monster
Ravelry Link: Samantha the Sock Monster
Yarn: Cascade 220 Wool in Purple and Yellow

Finally, I have accomplished something that I have never done before: I have completed a Urban Yarns KAL on TIME! (Just because they extended the deadline is besides the point). Introducing my softest stylin` cowl, Ships and Seaside by Tiny Owl Knits:

Pattern: Ships and Seaside
Ravelry Link: Ships and Seaside
Yarn: Aslan Trends Royal Alpaca in Cerise, Hunter Green, Chocolate, Navy

I am currently knitting up Jane, by Jane Richmond - a super simple pattern for a gorgeous slouchy hat. I have not yet tried a slouch hat, but this one is for someone who can pull off the slouchiest of slouches - the gorgeous Baltic colourway of Madelinetosh Vintage will make her eyes pop. Very quick knit so far.

Ysolda finally released the Pear Drop shawl as an individual pattern on Ravelry - I swooped that up and I think this will be a March knit.
