I’m not making any yarn-related new year’s resolutions, but it’s about time for me to review my progress and short-term goals again.  Since the last time I did this, I have finished all of four and a half knitting projects (the autumn sunset shawl, the blue Dulaan hat, the garter-stitch scarf for my labmate, the spirit-trail fire sock (which is the half I was counting), and my lace headband thing).  I’ve also finished a few spinning projects, with the green romney and the spirit-trail merino/mohair being the most notable.

I am currently (within the last two months) working on the following projects:

• diamond fantasy shawl
• green mohair cabled scarf
• lorna’s fire sock
• green freeform blanket
• alien-and-black hat for my dad
• purple hat for either my grandmother or Dulaan
• orange hat for me

• silk in "walking on the sun"
• purple, grey-brown, and purple-grey-brown yarn
• super-secret yarn for the Spin to Knit handspun swap
• orange mohair/wool

And I am planning to start the following projects sometime soon in the foreseeable future:

• Norberta, for my cousin L.  (by either Passover or October)
    red and gold cascade 220
• wristwarmers for my mom (by mid-March)
    the merino-mohair I spun
• half-finger gloves for use in lab (soon!)
    mossy green lorna’s
• peacock feather shawl
    Boogie laceweight
• shadow-neuron scarf
    this I’ve started already, in KnitPicks WotA, but I need to rip it out and restart with fewer stitches
• a leafy shawl that I need to convert to a triangle from a rectangular lace pattern
    my green grafton handspun
• a sweater for me!  that fits well and which I will wear!
    (probably) the chocolate brown elann wool that I’ve had for this purpose for way too long
• the orange mohair/wool shawl that’s been in my plans for the last year and a half
    the orange mohair from MDSW05 and the wool/mohair I’ve been spinning to go with it
• if I’m sticking with my plan from October or November, I should include a pair of Tess socks on this list

So…I want to finish at least the gift hats and the sock from my current-projects list before I start anything else.  The wristwarmers, the half-finger gloves, and the orange mohair shawl are up next, with the Tess socks as mindless knitting for concerts and trolleys.  I should also note that I have the yarn for all of those, not counting the bit that I have to finish spinning, so I shouldn’t have any trouble not buying yarn before Maryland.
