Goals for Summer 2009

Yes, I know you are sick of hearing about my rain days, but for the love of Mike they just keep coming. What was left in the garden is now very gone. We have even had tornados in the foothills, very unusual. 
I was reading Skeins Her Way  and she is having a wonderful give away. This one appealed to me because she is making me think as to what projects I want to get done this summer. I had to sit down and look at all the knitting projects I have on the needles and in my head. Mind you this is only knitting projects, not including my quilting goals. Well I let my brain smoke for a few minutes and the following is what I came up with. The first sweater will be for Erin and the one below for Caitlin.

The colors are blue and a soft mustard, wool by Manos. I love the way Manos dyes her fibers, the colors are just what I consider a little "off" and muted. They always get me a bit exited, you know when your heart picks up a few extra beats. When this happens to me I know I have the perfect yarn and color.

Also I want to finish these socks. A project so close but... not actually done.
Hope you have some goals for the summer. Time does fly by and to have some goals on paper is a good reminder. Thanks Skeins Her Way.
