I am in a holding pattern. I am waiting for my Mother Bear Pattern to come so I can determine how many I can knit/crochet and what each entails. I confess, I want to do the bears wearing the cute little outfits.  I am not sure how that is accomplished.  I will be supporting a few of the participants in the Bonus Challenge of the Podcasters Challenge 2011.  We will be knitting and crocheting bears for the Mother Bear Project based in Minnesota. 

I want to cast on my Clockwork and My Wish shawls at the same time. I also want to start spinning one of my Sheep to Shoe kits.  I have 24 rows and the edging left to knit on my Camp Loopy Project #3 before I can cast on.  I can't decide which yarns to use for My Wish shawl, I like the fall colors in Carin's (Round The Twist) and the blues in JAKelsay's (Ravelry TKG Forum post) shawls. I have lots of fiber I could spin and make it out of handspun.  I have also been thinking about some of my fall/autumn Socks That Rock colorways like Witch's Brew and Gail's Autumn Joy.  Too many choices.

I have not located my partially completed Glenesk Cardigan.  I have looked for it two weekends in a row.  Bizarre.  I found the Henry VIII pullover and the Lismore Cardigan Kit, but no Glenesk.  I plan to go ahead and finish the Felted Clogs and the Drop & Cross Stitch scarf.  Those are the only other remaining projects on my 11 WIPS in 2011 to do list. 

I signed up for a hat knit along with the Sockbunny podcast.  I have two hats on my Christmas knitting list and I still have not knit any hats for myself.  So I will begin that KAL in September along with the Bears.  Seems like a lot, but none of these projects have deadlines except the Camp Loopy Shawl.  Everything else is to be knit or spun when and if I can.

I had such hopes for this summer, but September is like another new year. Good luck on your KALs.
