2013 the Year of the Finished Project

I joined the Year of the Finished Project that Lynne is hosting on her blog this year. I have a bad habit of starting projects and then leaving them for a long time. Hopefully, joining will help me get some projects finished this year. My blog lacked knitting projects last year, so I'm trying to motivate myself to get things done.
Starting with this cardigan that I started late last year....
I misplaced my double pointed needles to finished the sleeves. I forgot that I had put them in the glove box of my partner's car when we were going to my folk's place as I was knitting during the car trip. A couple of months later Katie found them when she was looking for something else. Lucky because I almost bit the bullet and bought another set, but I knew they would turn up eventually.

This cardigan is called Annabell Cardigan. It is a top down garter stitch and the yarn I'm using is Cascade Yarns Eco + shade 9338. I think the colour is called Lichen. I got the yarn from when they had an anniversary sale last year. So my goal for February is to finish the sleeves and sew the buttons on.
Project no.2: Shalom ....
I started this a few years ago, frogged it, then recently picked up the pattern again and started it. The yarn I'm using is Patons Inca 7031. The yarn is a lovely green colour that is not showing up that well in the photo. I bought the yarn on sale at Lincraft about 5 years ago for $3 a ball.  I like this pattern with long sleeves, but I only have 10 balls and I'm not sure if I will have enough. I'm not sure if I'll get it finished this month but I will have a go at getting more knitted up. 
Now theses funny looking things are going to be felted slippers that I need to sew up and felt. I can't seem to remember the name of the pattern because I knitted these up nearly a year ago, misplaced my pattern, and can't seem to find the free pattern Link. I think they are these slippers
So these are my projects to get finished for the month of February. I know I was meant to post this on Thursday but I was unable to get on to the computer as I've been really tired in the evenings (which I'll go into on another post!!!!!!). So here's my home work handed in late !!!!!

Oooo, I won't spoil your future post but so exciting!

Good luck with your February goals (and I don't think ten balls will be enough for long sleeves! Check on Ravelry and see if someone has some to sell!)

I am sitting here thinking "yep I should totally join in on this one" then I laughed. Who am I kidding? I have just had two deliveries of yummy yarn and of course am dying to start yet more projects. Although I did finish a little dress yesterday, just needs buttons now. Good luck with your goals. Can't wait to see how the Inca cardigan turns out. Hugs xoxox
