I have joined Year of Projects over on Ravelry. I'm motivated this year to do a ton of knitting and have more finished objects than ever before. Year of Projects encourages me to blog and to fit knitting into my schedule. Check out this week's update.

The Back and Fronts on the Shakespeare Cardigan

The back and fronts are done for the Shakespeare Cardigan! This is the fastest I've ever knit any sweater. I'm so happy with the progress that I started the sleeve for the Shakespeare Cardigan. I would have more done, but there are a lot of decreases and I want to put some serious focus into them and it's just been too busy with St Patty's Day and tons of kid activities to even think about it. But here's what I've gotten done so far:

Beginning the sleeve

Of course when there's knitting that I want to do but not think about there's always a sock to knit and I got quite a bit done on one of these pairs of Christmas socks. I'm using jitterbug, which some people don't like so much, but I adore it. The twist on it is so deceptive. The yarn seems skinny but when you knit with it the twist comes undone a bit and makes for a larger stitch. Knitting socks with this goes by soooooo fast.

Sock progress with St Patty's Day Nails

I haven't actually made any progress on the Multnomah Shawl, but I need a little reminder that this project exists. It's a lovely shawl with a beautiful yarn. I love the color too. I just need to actually start knitting it.


This poor neglected shawl wants to be knitted...


Also I forgot to update you all with photos of finished Orange Marmalade... I've already given away 6 jars of it, but I still have more and more to make... I need more jars!!!
