Thinking ahead...

One of the features of Ravelry is the library where you can list all the knitting books in your collection.  Then it cross-references your collection with your knitting projects and you can view which books you have actually made projects from.   

Can you guess where I'm going with this?

I've identified 12 books that I have yet to make anything from.   A stash isn't just made of wool, books add to the pile as well.  So for 2009, a little challenge awaits. 

Six projects from knitting books I own but have not used yet.  Preferably using yarn from the stash.

The proposed list:

A Gathering of Lace - Cobweb Doily  (light coloured multi Marta's Yarns 2 ply) 
More Sensational Knitted Socks - one of the stranded stitch patterns? 
First Book of Modern Lace Knitting - Coronet design (brown Marta's Yarns 2 ply) 
Second Book of Modern Lace Knitting - Thistle design?  (purple Marta's Yarns 2 ply) 
Knits from a Painter's Palette - Charlotte's Web Shawl  (Noro Silk Ruby) 
Folk Shawls - Litla Dimun  (perhaps natural handspun?) 

Nothing too strenuous (I hope!).  One project every two months so there should be time for other stuff in between.
