Happy Wednesday everybody!
I had some specific goals I really wanted to achieve for my knitting this week:
1. Finish knitting my darn Saroyan (newly christened "Blue Fall")
Well, I am happy to say that I got it done*
|* of course it is currently blocking, so you will just have to come back on Friday to see a decent pic : )|
2. Swatch for my Goodale project (like a good little knitter)
Shazam! Check this. Not only did I swatch (and discover my gauge was way off) but I also washed the swatch and was shocked to discover I now had perfect gauge. Lesson learned!

3. Start knitting my Goodale as I can't take with me on vacation in a couple weeks because the intended recipient will be there.
um... and that where everything went off the rails.
Because, on Sunday, I picked up this from the post office:
18 Skeins of Plymouth Royal Llama Silk for the final project in my 2011 family sweater knitting resolution. I really feel I should actually accomplish at least one of my resolutions for this year. So, I will use this yarn to knit this sweater for my hubby.
In the end, there has been more swatching (and washing!) instead
Maybe others had better luck staying on track with their WIP's. Find out through Tami's blog.
