Setting Some Goals!



With the New Year here! It is time to set some goals!  And one of my goals is to use up all the yarn I have. :)
I have collected a lot of yarn. LOL! And it needs to be used up. So below you see my first 3 projects of 2011. Both afghans are being made up from stash yarn only. :)
This is my ribbon afghan. I am using up the yarn that was left from Kyra's ripple afghan. But I have also found a few more colors I had on hand to use on it as well. The pattern for this afghan can be found at The aventures of the Gingerbread Lady Blog.  This pattern looks like it will be a great way to use up a bunch of yarn :)

This is my Granny Ripple Afghan. This pattern can be found at Ravelry.  I have a few skeins of the green and blue in my stash as well as the soft white. :) Hopefully there is enough to make a medium sized afghan.


  My final project is a scarf. The red strip is done, except for weaving in the ends. the white strip is barly started. the white strip will eventually interlock with the red strip, and then I will be adding a strip of black.
This I am making from yarn that my dad and step mom gave me. They came up for a visit recently and brought me a rubbermade tote full of yarn. Most of it is red, black and white which are the school colors for where they live.

  Have a wonderful day everyone!

Oh, I'm too chicken to ever make a goal like this- I couldn't do it! You're off to a great start. I just found out my daughter's school colors next year will be red, black and white, too :)
Happy New year, Melissa!

I made a goal to cool it on the sock clubs. My only ones is Socks that Rock. I would also like to knit at least 12 pairs of socks this year. Last year I had the same goal and knit 8. -oh well! Good luck with your goals. It looks like to oar off to a good start!

I find it interesting that people make goals to use up their stash. I like having a stash. I'll buy yarn in a minute. Maybe I don't have enough of a stash, being it doesn't bother me.....

You have lots on the go and everything looks so pretty. I especially like the granny ripple!
