2009 is halfway over...

June goals vs. what was actually accomplished:
1. Finish Amelia. DONE!!!
2. Finish Apres Surf. DONE!!!
3. Finish Blackberries. I think I did about 10 rows...
4. Finish Seafoam raglan. DONE!!!
5. Finish college afghan. Didn't touch it...
6. Cast on for Whisper cardigan. Finish it. About halfway finished.
7. Start Featherweight cardigan. Nope. But I have wound 1.1 of the 3 skeins needed and bought the pattern.
The good news? As of last night, I had knit 1900 yards this month and only bought 900.
Finished objects -
Amelia (for DD), Apres Surf and Simple Seafoam (both for me)

Stash enhancement-
Lagoon Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere 2-ply and Endearing Sundara FSM:

July Goals: (We will be traveling most of the month, so let's keep those projects portable!)
1. Finish Whisper
2. Finish Melody
3. Start/finish Featherlight
I may come up with some souvenier yarn that needs to be knit right away, so I won't add anything else right now. I'm really looking forward to pulling stash yarn slips out of a jar and knitting whatever I get, but so far, there's been too much must-knit-right-now stuff in the queue. Maybe once I finish the College Afghan and Blackberries. But I'm also eager to get to some of the stuff in my ravelry queue. I've obviously got to knit faster.
