March 2008 Goals in more detail

Here is a more detailed explanation of what needs to be done with each of the projects in my "March Goals" list:

1. "Everything Bag" from Suss Cousins, Hollywood Knits Style (k): lining needs to be cut out, sewn and attached to inside of bag, including the two pockets; button and closure needs to be attached; handles need to be attached
2. "Breast Cancer Ribbin’ Scarf," my design (k): the two halves of the ribbed portion need to be Kitchenered together–yick!
3. "Granny Square Scarf" by Suss Cousins, navy (k & c): the ends need to be woven in, and the knitted, ribbed portion needs to be sewn to the two granny squares on the ends
4. "Granny Square Scarf" by Suss Cousins, claret (k & c): the ends needs to be woven in; the ribbed portion of the scarf needs to be finished; and the ribbed portion needs to be sewn to the two granny squares on the ends
5. "Cardigan for Arwen" by Kate Gilbert in Interweave Knits, Winter 2006 (k): ends need to be woven in and one sleeve needs to be attached
6. Aran Sweater for SIL, from Ann Budd’s amazing book (k): shoulder and sleeve seams need to be sewn together; sleeves need to be attached; cabled funnel collar needs to be knitted
7. "Ewe & Eye Needlecase" by Heart’s Content (xs): sheep is about halfway done, and none of the needlecase has been assembled together, see earlier entry here
8. "Corinthian Ribbed Blanket," my "design" (a simple ribbed blanket) (k): one last skein of yarn needs to be knitted up; single crochet edging needs to be worked; and tassels attached
9. "Drizzle" by Anna Tillman for Rowan 38 (k): ends need to be woven in; decorative buttons need to be sewn on
10. "Ballerina Top" from Zoe Mellor, Adorable Knits for Tots (k): needs to be blocked, sewn together, and crochet edging needs to be added; I also want to add some embroidered flowers
11. "Aran Wrap," my design (k): the actual knitting is about halfway completed, and then I need to add crochet edging and tie
12. "Felted Sashiko Chessboard Cover," my design (k): knitting is about three-quarters completed; then needs to be felted, sewn together and decorative embroidery added

Well, that should keep me off the streets for a while! The most time-consuming item is, of course, the sheep needlecase–as God is my witness, I’ll never work a 40-count one-over-one design again!!
