Hey, look at that month that's gone by since my last post.

To be fair, I usually post here when I finish reading or knitting something, and I have finished no knitting (though at least one book, the Bruce Springsteen Born in the U.S.A. 33 1/3, which was terrific). I have completely frogged and almost finished re-knitting a few things, but I need to settle down at my apartment and do some finishing, which I've not been able to do for the past month.

In great news, though, part of the reason I was so busy is that I was a friend's maid of honor, so I'm fine with my lack of knitting and reading.

Anyhow, I saw a link for a pre-summer knitting contest at Skeins Her Way, where you can the yarn and pattern for Ali's Blue Sky Cotton tank, while reading my former SP Megan's blog. The contest involves listing your summer knitting goals, so here we go:

-Finish Sahara (so close!)
-Rosa from Rowan 35
-Bonita from Rowan 41
-Amy Singer's scarf from the newest IK
-The cover pattern from the Spring '07 IK (back is already completed)
-The Blue Sky cropped cardigan (I have almost the entire body done, and the sleeves; I finished this once and decided to knit it tighter)
-A pair of socks

I could add more, but I will try to keep within reason. I'm an overambitious knitter, thus the bins and bins of yarn at home. And at Jan's. And balls of yarn as "decoration" all around my apartment.

So yeah... you should participate, too, if you want. Just be sure to mention you heard about the contest here... as I get an extra entry in the drawing.
