YOP Update June 17th, 2012

I actually had some knitting time this week! I even managed to make it to a knit night at one of my favourite LYS.  That was a real treat as I haven’t done that in ages.  It was great and I got to catch up with other knitters I haven’t seen in a while.  There is very little chance on the list.  But I did sneak in another dishcloth and I’m pretty sure I’ll manage one more before the end of the month which mean that I will be right on track for completing all 24 cloth this year.  I also have a frogged item on the list.  The pattern really needs a chart and I just was not enjoying knitting it so instead of continuing to suffer I opted to take it off the needles and move on.

I’m really looking forward to doing this again.  My list is already really long which will be really interesting since my knitting time has decreased so dramatically.  But, I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.

    Yay to having knit time! Every time you share your list, I’m amazed by all that you’ve made in just a year!

  • Ruth

    Well done on getting in some knitting time, mine fell away drastically there for a while but hopefully I’m back. Great your still on track with your cloths, I’m just starting to catch up now. Your list always amazes me and I can’t wait to see what you have for next year.

  • Faith

    Well done for keeping up with your cloths. I like the wingspan on your previous post, looks like a lovely pattern and perfect when it ticks so many boxes!

    Have a great week!

  • Kim

    Your list? Amazing! I would never guess you have a hard time finding knitting time. I am madly trying to get caught up with my cloths and look forward to seeing your new ones.
    Have a super week–

  • misty

    oh knit night, I’m so jealous! I havent even been able to go to the bathroom by myself for 2 years now. I also love your list.

  • sandy

    Glad you got to go to the shop and catch up with folks. I would love to do that, but with my unpredicatable work schedule, I just plan on going to things like that in the evening.
