What I Am Going to Do (Knit) This Summer:

1. Finish the Drunken Bees sock.

2. Finish the cardi featured in this post. I've managed about 24 rows since then.

3. Knit Socks.

Clockwise from upper left corner. #1 Whistle Bait (Ravelry link) by Terry Ross Designs. The yarn is from my pal Yvonne in the Amsterdam. #2 Lacuna (not a Ravelry link), also from Terry Ross Deisgns. The yarn is the Sanguine Gryphon eidos in the Bougainvillea colorway (dare I say, from The Loopy Ewe - she has only roving right now). #3 Rainforest Socks by Anni Design (Sockamania June pattern choice) - the yarn is Socks that Rock lightweight in Lenore (a Rockin' Sock Club selection). #4 Slip Stitch Delight Socks by Terry Ross Designs (a FREE Ravelry download!) The yarn is Black Beauty kettle dyed superwash merino from Bellamoden's Etsy shop. #5 Speedway Socks from Anni Design (another Sockamania June pattern choice), the yarn is Zen Yarn Garden Merino/Bamboo/Nylon blend in the pomegranite colorway (bought at Woolgirl). #6 Arch-Shaped Socks (free PDF download) by Jen Showalter - the yarn is Tess Supersocks - the yarn was a gift from Mia (who is going through the loss of her mom right now, if you could spare her a kind word).

4. Knit Mr. Greenjeans from Knitty.

That is Lipstick Lava from Dream in Colors - my walk of shame purchase this week.

5. Finish the Nutkins! Oh wait, they're already done!!!!!

Pattern: Nutkin by Beth LaPensee (free download!) Yarn: Yarn Love Scarlett O'Hara in the Friendship colorway (again, The Loopy Ewe) Needles: Knitpick Harmony 2.5mm Started: May 16, 2008 Completed: June 4, 2008. Note: Love the cuff, love the pattern, the yarn is very soft, if a tad splitty. No fit issues for me.

Now, Ali over at Skeins Her Way is having another Summer Goals contest so here is my link. Don't you want to join us? Last day of school today!!!!

Look at all those sock projects in their individual bags! How cute!
Are you signed up for the Summer of Socks 2008?

Happy knitting-
Wow! You are going to be BUSY this summer! (Knitting and because today is the last day of school, right?)
You are so organized!!! And you have a lot of great projects ahead... Glad that your Nutkins turned out so well and fit.
Would writing out your goals count as a goal? Yeah!!! for last day of school! It couldn't gget here fast enough for me....
No knitting goals for me! I'm just going to knit, like I always do. Will cheerlead for you, however.
WHEEEEEEEEE!!! That Lipstick Lava is DIVINE!

What a fantastic idea to lay out all your yummy yarns with patterns. Very cool! I will surely check out Ali's Summer Goals thingy!

So many cute little knitting purses...the photo makes me want to get organized and buy more little sock bags.
Oh, what lovely projects! You are so organised... May be planning like this makes you organised ... should I do the same? Is this contest only for American knitters?
I'm loving how organized you are with all your little sock bags. That must be your secret!

I'm also betting that you get this all done too!
As if my bag obsession wasn't bad enough - now I have the urge to make more sock bags. You enabler, you!
