The one good thing about this winter for me has been that I've had plenty of time for knitting. In the photo below you can see what I've gotten knitted so far this month for the Afghans for Afghans 2010 Youth Campaign. The green socks on the left are almost done as is the hat in the top center. When I bought that yarn I thought it was just about the ugliest color of yarn I had ever seen, but it's knitting up pretty neat into that hat. The socks just below it are knit of the same yarn and I thought it was interesting how the same variegated yarn ends up looking totally different when knitted into two different projects.
These projects have to arrive at the Afghans for Afghans headquarters in San Francisco by March 1st, so I'll have to be ready to ship the package by next Friday. I hope to be able to complete one more of each item this next week -- hat, socks and mittens. I'll post one more picture later in the week to show you the final outcome of my knitting efforts.
