YOP Week Week 4

This morning I got up and worked on the Johnny socks....then I got an email that stated that grades were due tomorrow...YIKES!!!  I am such a procrastinator!!!  I had a couple things to correct....did what I could of the grades...I've been out of school the last three school days..and I did not bring everything home with me.....so I'll get the rest done tomorrow...we are suppose to get some nasty weather tomorrow, but in the afternoon...just right for the drive home..yeah!

Yesterday I put in some work on the Hermione's Everyday socks and got past that damn cuff!  I am 3 repeats in...I would have done more, if not for the crazy correcting/grading session today! Seriously HOURS!!!  I told the Hubs I think I need to go shopping at Gnomeacres now and he's like No, you don't get rewarded for procrastinating....that's what he thinks!  I've been eyeing some Dobby...cuz who doesn't need a little Dobby in their life? (And oh my goodness...she added some!)

And I knew it was coming, but tonight's episode of Downton Abbey...holy waterworks!!!! 

And I finished my Sparkie this week..... I'm going to aim for a finish a week....

I hated doing the 20 rows of ribbing on the cuff of my socks, too. It never seemed to end! And then, when I wasn't looking, it ended :)

forgetting to grade..yikes..but procrastination is such a fun sin..and not really deadly..right? I like your stitch marker, but I'm ignoring the socks cuz I'm trying to forget that they are on my YOP list and I swore I would attempt them soon!

Love the yarn your using for the Hermiones. That cuff does seem to take forever doesn't it. Johnny socks are looking good also. Of course you need a reward, procrastination or not a reward is needed.
