One Monthly Goal - September

 I've been writing a list of my UFO's....and there are soooo many.

I think I'll try knocking one off the list every month (or two months if that particular quilt needs a lot of work).

This month my goal is to complete the Farm Life Vintage quilt top.

I think it needs three borders, maybe four, one of them being a border of flying geese....like the ones to the left of the picture. 

This quilt has been taken way too long to be a real quilt, so I look forward to having it completed. 

Another thing I'd like done is three hats made of these balls of yarn...

I am just finishing some knitted socks. Normally socks don't take too long to finish, but this pair has been so uninspiring. I'm almost to the ribbing of the second sock, so finally almost done. They also happen to be the biggest pair of socks I've ever made, on a 2mm needle (small!), so that has helped in dragging these out so long. I'll be glad to see the end of them!

My goal this year is for everyone in the family to have a knitted item for Christmas. Luckily the hats will knit up quickly. Only a few more after these ones, and one to knit in secret, and perhaps one more pair of socks, and I'm good.

I wasn't going to show the pair of socks that I'm working, but oh well, why not. The colour is called Hamburger and the one good thing is that they are turning out to be almost identical twins...not bad! I like doing the toe-up method, but I'm not a fan of how this particular heel looks. It's the first time I've done a Fleegle heel and despite not liking the look of it, I did like the knitting of it. 

Edited to add: Now, after a bit more knitting, they are finally complete! Yay!!! On to the next pair...or one of the hats.
