Ambitious August

Do you KNOW me? I can't so anything "small." When I decide on projects I go ALL out and here is my stash to work through for August:

Don't be too alarmed.

OK go ahead and panic momentarily.

NOW - are you still thinking "There's no F** way!" You might be right, but then again...

I have THIS:

Which allows me to churn through st st projects at light speed. I am determined to stash bust and I am determined to give knitted Christmas gifts to my family and friends. August is going to be a BIG month for me.

Some of the yarns pictured are for handknitting/crocheting projects to be finished in August, but most are bound for the Bond.

Here's the Official August List:
10 Felted Tote Bags
6 Handtowels with crocheted edging
"Woody" Sweater for Anna*
"Pea" Sweater for Anna*
"Bill" Sweater for Toby*
"Jay" Sweater for Toby*
Tank Top for Anna
Sierra T-Shirt for Me
Fantasy Naturale T-Shirt for Me
Felted Potholders
Purple Crocheted Afghan for my Aunt
Branching Out Scarf for my Dr. Friend
AND finishing (this week) a couple of WIP that are REALLY close to completion.

So, who's taking bets? Think I can do it? Think I'll be stark raving MAD by mid-August? Think I'll finish early and get to add more projects to the list (God forbid I take a break)?

Tell me what you think!

I'll keep you posted!

I have 2 knitting machines and little time to teach myself how to use them. I have faith in you, go girl!

I have a knitting machine too. My uncle bought it for me when I was in high school and I've never learned how to use it. I'm excited to see you finish this stash...and hoping to see good tips too. I'll have to see if I can learn how to use mine.
