December

Here we are on December 1 and I'm getting ready to start my last Knit Something of the Month Club project for 2011.  This is the first year I've challenged myself this way, but it will not be the last!  I wasn't sure how this would work for me since I don't always respond well to deadlines, but for the last 11 months, I've knit my project.  I've swapped some patterns and some yarn out from my original plan from last December, but I've done either socks or a shawl (and one scarf) each month this year.  Most have been in fingering weight except for January, which was worsted, but the yardage was about the same as the fingering weight projects.

I'm going to start my last project today, and it will be Ruffle My Feathers in Bugga (Bomber Worm colorway - here's what the actual Bomber Worm looks like if you're curious - don't worry it's not a really scary looking bug).  The nice thing about these smaller projects is that they give me something that can be finished quickly, which is a nice feeling to have when I'm also working on (or ignoring) larger projects (I'm so sorry Austin Hoodie).

Since it is December and I do plan to Knit Something of the Month next year, I need to pull out my stash soon and find some projects!  I'm not sure what I'll do yet and I might either skip socks or cut way back on them (the sock drawer is a bit full), but I'm not sure I want to do a dozen shawls either.  Maybe I'll add in some fingerless mitts!  Or a tiny, kitten shaped straight jacket...
