Well it's nearing the end of June & this is my progress to date.

I am doing well with Summer of Stash & Stashalong. It has been 2 months 2 weeks 2 days since I bought yarn. Waaa Hooo!!! I am using up my stash!

Finished Projects:
One Skein Hooded Baby Sweater
Multidirectional Triangle Scarf
Eyelash Scarf
Clapotis (for Amazing Lace & Clapotis Knitalong)
Scrap Square Garter Stitch Lapghan

Soleil - did not like the yarn I had chosen for Soleil. Still like the yarn but will use it in a different pattern.

Still "On the Needles"
Irish Cables Bag
Irish Hiking Scarf
Red Socks
Odd-Ball Sampler Afghan

I only have 3 projects on the needles at the moment excluding the Odd-Ball Samper Afghan (this is definitely a LONG TERM project!)

Not bad & this on only the beginning of summer.
Lets see what I can accomplish for the rest of the summer!!

Pictures to follow - Camera battery crapped out, need to buy another battery!!

Update to "The Summer of Knitting"

As posted on my Chezknit Bravejournal blog on Thursday, May 11, 2006

Well this is the 'Summer of Knitting' for this year!!
I joined a few knitalongs

Stashalong - still going strong with NO yarn purchases except my free day & that was to buy yarn for the Amazing Lace knitalong

Project Spectrum - May's colour is Green!! I have cast on's Soleil

The Amazing Lace - Summer 2006 - I have finally decided on my project, errr team-mate. It is's Clapotis & I am waiting for confirmation to the Clapotis Knitalong that I joined.

Irish Hiking Scarf - Absolutely love this scarf. Very simple cable & it looks marvelous. Waiting for confirmation for this knitalong as well

Well it looks like I am going to be VERY busy this summer knitting.

What can I say 'I cannot help myself', I have joined a few MORE knitalongs for support or whatever!!!!

Summer of Stash - Can you go all Summer without buying yarn?? Use up your stash!
Stash I do not have stash. LOL!!!

Project Finish Knit - To finish the projects that I have on the needles BEFORE casting on any more.
As of today, June 5, 2006 I have completed 2 projects, frogged 1 (Soleil - did not like it) so I have only 7 projects on the needles at the moment - yes I did cast on one more!

Mulitdirectional Knitting - Interesting concept!! Knit in continuous modules without having to cut yarn or pick up stitches. Finished the Multidirectional Triangle Scarf. Love it!!

What can I say I love challenges!!!!
