Designated Knitter Mission Possible

Greetings and Dear Laura:

I loved the idea of Mission Possible, so I'm in. I have to hurry so that I can count the things I'm working on!

1. Yellow Baby Blanket
Current WIP. I'm about 1/2 done with this blanket. I was making it for one of my God-daughters, but her older sister decided to offer the blankie that I made for her to her baby sister. I'm going to finish it to have on hand as a baby gift. It will take 6 balls of the 10 in my stash. I'm pleased to be using some of this yarn - I bought 4 bags in different colors 5 years ago. I've now used up the red and blue, and I still have a bag of white. Bottom line, this project is true stash busting!
2. Ladybug Sweater
Oh, this is so close! I just have to cut the steeks for the sleeves, and then do the finishing sewing and neckband. AND this is not just a UFO, it is a kit that I bought 7 years ago!

3. Red Socks
I have one and a half socks done from this pair. I need socks! So, this is definitely on the list. I've had the yarn for years.
4. Aaron's Vest
My nephew-in-law and I made a deal. I'd make him a vest to keep him warm ice fishing, and he'll turn my stash of wild-cherry wood into an entertainment center. We are both WAY behind schedule. Maybe if I finish the vest.....
5. Green Socks
I fell in love with this yarn at Cass Street Depot and bought it during their going-out-of-business sale. It's the Embossed Leaves pattern from Favorite Socks. I moved right along down the ankle of the first sock, but then the baby knitting began.....
6. Blue Socks
I started these several years ago with Blackberry Ridge sport weight and making up the pattern as I go. I'm doing 2 at a time on 2 circulars, toe up.

7. I also started a pair of sport weight Lorna's Laces that I got from Fiddlehead Yarns in Kenosha. I cast them on right there in the store...but then moved back to the baby projects.....
8-12. I have the following sock yarns that I haven't cast on yet, but I really want socks, so these are the rest of the list....

So, there you go. My 12 Mission Possible projects. Fingers crossed....

Keep knitting!

Good luck! The need for socks should be a help :-) Some of those sock yarns look so luscious.
