I reached one of my goals for January 2009 - knit at least one item for charity. I knitted two watch caps for Christmas at Sea and I have a scarf for the local homeless shelter on the needles.
I am also trying hard to finish this scarf and get it on it's merry way overseas although as slow as the mail seems to be (my Christmas present to Germany has still not arrived yet) I might be late anyway.
I signed up for Ravelry and hope that posting all my knitting UFOs there will actually inspire me to get them finished. In case you want to look for me there, you can find me as mariaknits1508.
