YOP: Week 9

Ya' know, every week I type YPO and have to correct it...sigh..

If you read my blog, you know that this was the end of round 1 of tournament 7 of Nerd Wars...and I had a couple of finishes that were not on my list...many times for Nerd Wars, I'm not sure what to make and then I get inspiration and BAM!!...I just start crocheting or knitting...crocheting mostly...

So I made a Chocolate Peep this past week...and I also whipped up a Czech Republic washcloth for Radek Zelenka of Stargate Atlantis....those were my only two finishes...

I did start my Green Spring sweater, which is my Nerd Wars dissertation this tournament...I tend not to finish my dissertation and didn't attempt one last tournament....but this is being made with Mad Color yarn..and I'm going to see Heather in 2 weeks at the North Shore Yarn Crawl, so I want to show her the beginning of it..

So I have 2 quick project finishes and 1 start of a large project....I also cast on my second So Cazh..and have 1 round done...and worked two more rounds on the H socks...

I'm heading out today to visit a favorite's about an hour away on the shore...she's holding some yarn for me....we'll see what else I come home with :)

Gorgeous green! I hope you finish your dissertation this time :)

Ruth McKeon said...

Well done on the couple of finishes and I love the green. Hoping you get your dissertation done this time.

The peep is brilliant! I really have no clue what Nerd Wars is, but I see it mentioned a lot...and lit looks like you are doing well with it. Your sweater is lovely and I hope you can find the motivation to finish it---if your blog background is any indication of where you actually live, I would think that might be motivation enough! ;)
Happily, I am visiting my favorite lys today with my friend--it is always a fun time when we go. I hope to have something yummy to share next week too.
Have a great week--
