Holy Smokes, I am on FIRE!

Seriously, three FO's and 1/4 of a pair of socks! I even cast on Stefanie Japel's Cozy V-Neck Pullover today!
Pattern: Thermal Socks by Audrey Paquin. Yarn: Spunky Eclectic Super Nova Merino Nylon in the Irish Dreams colorway. Needles: Lantern Moon Sox Stix in US size 1 dpn's. Started: January 3, 2008 Completed: January 20, 2008. Another really easy pattern, however, I really grew to hate purling in the round.

Preemie hat #8!

The first January Sockamania sock in Lisa Souza Hardtwist Merino Petite (yummy!) This is the Newtown colorway.
Pattern: Hourglass Sweater by Joelle Hoverson from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Yarn: Araucania Magallenes 8 ply wool. Needles: Addi Circulars in size 7. Started: December, 2007 Completed: January 18, 2008. Can't wait to wear this snuggly sweater!

The Wild game was fun, but an unfortunate loss. Our boys looked lifeless on the ice. Some people would like to blame the second sheet of ice placed down because of the figure skating competition this weekend.

Our little Pucksters had a good game on Satuday night and tied their game against Eastview - they won all of their fairplay points so life was good.

The outlook for Ozzie is much brighter right now. He still limps a little bit and is terribly sleepy, but I do believe he is on the road to recovery. He's going to go see the vet tomorrow to see what she has to say.

As for the yarn diet plan - I just may join the Stashalong 2 - If I can just remove more yarn than I am placing in, we should be OK.

Comments:
Wow, you ARE on fire! Yay for your finished Hourglass - I bet it's cozy as can be. And I'm glad to hear Ozzie's doing better.
 
If not on fire, at least smokin'.

Good job; the sweater is really coolly striped!
 
You are getting a lot done! I had decided that I was going to skip the January socks, but I keep seeing socks that I like so much.
 
Holy SMOKE! Get it? You're on fire? tee hee hee.

I don't know how you do it. My cabin socks just keep on going. No end in sight.

SOOO glad to hear that Ozzie's doing ok. They are so dear - it's hard to see them suffer (and carry them out to poo).

LOVELY SWEATER! BEAUTIFUL!
 
Fire is the only way to keep warm these days.

That sweater? - a warm green toasty promise of spring to come.
 
oh wow... love the sweater! Hurray for Ozzie.
 
I love the sock. And the sweater looks comfy.

And it is good news about Ozzie. And figure skating and hockey have different ice requirements. And you can figure that the figure skaters would complain.
 
Good news all around. Ozzie will be all ready for our warmer weather (I hope!)
And the knitting you've done. Wow! So you're up to how many socks? About 200 pair! ;-)
 
I can't believe how many socks you knit. Have you thought of creating a flicker slideshow of a year's worth of socks? I'd watch it!
 
ooh, great job! I love the scarf especially.
 
What a fabulous sweater and socks. I especially love the Sockmania sock. What a cool texture. I bet it really looks interesting all stretched out.

I bow in homage to your FO Queenliness.

We had a rough game against Burnsville this week. Lost 2-6. Our goalie took it real hard, as he's had a stellar season up to now. We're heading out for Moorhead tomorrow, only to be matched up with the top teams in the state in our bracket. Yikes! I hope this pulls us out of our slump. Uggggh.
 
I like the sweater - the color is really pretty.

But I swear, I have never known someone who could knit as fast as you can. If you ever go to one of the Stiches events hosted by knittinguniverse.com, you could sign up to be in the fastest kntter contest against Lily Chin. Man, you could make Lily's head spin, I bet!
 
p.s.

I put out a picture of that eggcarton Christmas tree. It's so cool! If you want to know how to make it I think my mom was going to write up the directions. Just let me know.
