Tick tick

I joined Clean Slate by 2008 on Ravelry a while back. Since then I've managed to knock most of the Christmas knitting off my list, but I may be out of luck finishing a couple of the miscellaneous projects:

Finished (hooray!):

Anemoi Mittens (but I forgot to photograph the FO on their own so here's a WIP picture and a photo of them being modelled by the recipient).
Yarn: 1 ball of Frog Tree Alpaca sportweight in cream/white and 1 skein of Alchemy Alpaca Pure in Madre Deus.

Conwy socks
Pattern: Conwy from Nancy Bush's "Knitting on the Road"
Yarn: 2 skeins of ShibuiKnits sock yarn

Christmas stockings and Linen Bath Set (already posted)

Swing Thing baby sweater
Yarn: 3 balls of Plymouth Encore worsted, plus some grosgrain ribbon and thread from Nancy's Sewing Basket

Socks for my husband:
Yarn: 3 balls of worsted weight Mission Falls superwash merino
Finish date: 12/25, while the poor guy was working

Getting may happen:
Pacific Northwest Shawl

It's either this or the shawl:
Embossed Leaves socks (no photos yet)

Hah! As if:
Bayerische socks (still no photos)
Hydrangea scarf

Definitely not (and frogged):
Diamond Waffle socks

A piece of work:
The tabby

Not ready for his close-up:
The cow-cat (can you believe he's NOT the cat in the card?)

You're close. I feel like lace doesn't count for the Clean Slate :)

It was awesome seeing you and your MIL accompanied by Hydrangea, Conway, and Embossed Leaves. Can't wait to see the rest of those pretty FOs!

When was Clean Slate 2008 conceived? I feel as though I only heard about it in the last two or three weeks, which doesn't seem like nearly enough time for most people. You do seem to have made pretty impressive progress, though. The FOs look great! I particularly love the Swing Thing and the Anemoi Mittens. The slight variegation in the blue on them (the mittens) is particularly nice.

Good for you! You're tearing through your UFOs. Pacific Northwest is going to be amazing.

Maybe your cats are out modeling while you and your husband are working??
