Flying (and knitting) solo




Okay, so only Blogless Michelle is really going to get this joke. Today marks my first full day of solo parenting for a few weeks, and I'm going to try to mark the time by accomplishing a few things.

I'm actually going to refer to "books" part of this blog and work on a paper for a conference at the end of February. But more importantly, the "yarn" goals:
  • I have a "secret knitting" project that I started last night that I want to finish.
  • I want to start and finish The Toddler's sweater vest that I meant to make for Christmas.
  • I must finish my husband's Gentleman's Socks, which were also supposed to be a Christmas Present. I had the lengthen the foot considerably and that was demoralizing, so I stuffed them down in the bottom of my knitting basket.
  • I must, must, must finish my mother's Clapotis. I tried to appease her with a pair of Fetchings and a Tudora, but I must finish the Clap. (By the way, you can get Fetching and Tudora out of one skein of Malabrigo and it's a great quick fix.)
Wish me luck!
