It's the end of the month, and since I haven't actually finished anything, there hasn't been any knitting posts in a bit, so here's a month end wrap up.
The Kernel scarf is actually coming along quite nicely. I'm 17 pattern repeats of 23 into it (may do a few more depending on how much yarn I have left when I get through #23). The pattern is fairly easy. I haven't quite memorized it yet, but I'm so close to memorizing it that it goes very quickly. The yarn is lovely to work with.
I went through my stash last weekend, and cleared out quite a bit of yarn I knew I'd never do anything with, that I've put aside to donate (once I can verify my other doesn't have any use for it). I also took out some yarn remainders that I should be able to quickly get rid of. The above hat is a result of that. I have enough yarn left to make at least one more, possibly two, so I'm doing those, and putting them aside for the inevitable babies that seem to pop into my life in waves.
Speaking of inevitable babies, I've ordered the yarn for my project for my niece or nephew to be, as well as a sweater for me. Those will be my next projects. It's a Spring-weight sweater, so they should be good projects for the coming season.
