Episode 86 - Finished knits for the win!

Several lingering projects cross the finish line in this episode and I couldn't be happier! With my eye on the thermometer and the extreme drought, lighter, summery knits are on my mind and hopefully soon on the needles. I've cast on a cotton tank that I will take with me to the Northern California Knitting Retreat this weekend, but I've got a few other things on the needles as well. Like most knitters, a weekend away is viewed as a knitting opportunity and I have three (count 'em--three!) projects on the needles and in the travel plans. Gayle has chosen a cowl to work on, and like my tank, both of us are thinking of simple knits while chatting away with friends. Also finished this episode, are the Q1 stash goals. Did you complete your quarterly goals? Many folks did and are consequently moving towards a happier, more manageable stash. Would you like to join in on Q2? Check out our Ravelry group and the Q2 goals thread. Moving towards a stash we love and can live with is always a winning goal!
