BINGOMG Update 4

It’s nearing the end of March, so here’s a very quick update on BINGOMG:

I am one item away from a blackout.

And because I’m me, it’s a laceweight sweater!

Last Friday I cast on Little Bird by Veera Välimäki. I’m using a dark purple wool/silk lace that I’ve had in my stash since 2013. Stashbusting FTW!

I am just about to join together the fronts and backs, then it’s just a bunch of lace in the round and some sleeves.  Don’t get me wrong, I have no intentions of finishing this before the end of the month. But I can confidently say that I will blackout BINGOMG. That’s a total of 50 projects (including this one), with two double counting (Harvest and Silky Blue).

Breakdown:

  • Six adult sweaters (Old WIP, 4 of the 5 sweater square, and this for laceweight).
  • Two baby sweaters
  • Ten soap sweaters (sigh, counts for only one square/project)
  • A ridiculous number of cozies (9 coffee, 2 water bottle)
  • Nine neck things (cowls, shawls)
  • Eleven hats
  • Three toys/decoration
  • Seven things that I would’ve otherwise not knit at all.

This was fun while it lasted. Now I’ll go back to my regularly scheduled pattern-choosing-limbo between projects 😀
