Look what fell off the needles today? My Vine Lace Cardigan. Another UFO moves to the done side of the board. Hurrah.

Okay, so it isn't completely done, because I still need to sew in the ends, and then block it, then sew up the sleeves. But the knitting is done and that counts for something.

Next up, I am going to try to finish my Post War Mittens before the end of January for NaKniMitMo over on Ravelry. Perhaps I should have been a little less ambitious and knit the Bella Mittens instead. Size 10 needles with yarn held doubled v. Size 1 needles and stranded fingerweight yarns. Yeah, you don't need to be a rocket scientist to know which one is going to get done there.

Still, I want to make a pair of the Bellas for my Twilight mad SIL. I still may make them next month, as I now have a trip to Chicago on the books, so I could take them to her. Then I could use them to check a notch in both the Mitten KAL and the Year Long Gift-A-Long group.

I am just thrilled to have my finishing list moving along. Now with that big clunk from the Vine Lace Cardigan, the next three to finish are aforementioned Post War mittens, the Lacy stole and a cardigan I've had on the needles for probably five years. It's my oldest UFO and I am determined to finish it before it demands to be sent to Kindergarten. Yep, I'm cooking along.

How are your January resolutions working out?
