YOP: Week 39 and 40

So I skipped another week....sheesh...but I have been crafting......and I need to add some projects to the list....
Nerd Wars began....so I am making a monkey hat, and possibly a little monkey.  The hat will be done today.
I moved the Bedford shawl into the WIP's group, as I'm going to use that as NW challenge project.
I continue to work on my Age of Brass and Steam, I have about 7 rows to go. I need to finish it before I cast on the Bedford.
I also am on the strap of my Really Big Bag, then I need to felt it.
I am restarting Creekbed, it'll be a dissertation again.
I finished the Sooper Seekrit swap gift and that is a story that needs to be told! And I'm going to make one for myself...maybe for Rhinebeck!

I'm still going through my yarn and matching it with projects, especially if I bought the yarn for a specific project.  I'm putting it into plastic bags and labeling them.  I have so much!  But that won't stop me from buying some pretties at the upcoming fiber festivals (3 in the coming weeks!)

I just need to craft more!

Speaking of which, I've received two new skeins this past week.  I meant to do a Saturday Stash post, but got busy doing other things....so I'll have to post them over the week. 

Since I have such limited time, I'm thinking of getting posts ready on Sundays, then I can just edit them and post during the week.

This week I have a workshop on Tuesday, so I'll be home a bit earlier than normal. Yeah!

I've taken to going through my stash, too. I need to match up some yarn with projects...or rethink some projects I had previously matched with some yarn. I also need to add my new yarn to my pages...Bob knows I have enough but, you know, new pretties...

I wish I was more organised with my yarn stash.........sometimes half my problem with starting something new is deciding which yarn is best with each pattern........would certainly save some time.

Wow you've got a ton on the go! But it sounds like a bunch of stuff is near to getting done, so go you!

Rhinebeck! I'd definitely be bring yarn home from that!

Kepanie said...

Glad you're gettin' that crafting in. Hope to see some pics next week!

You are one busy lady but what fun with yarn to buy and fiber fetisvals! Have a great time!

I was thinking the same think regarding framing some posts in over the weekend to post the next week. Working 40 hours ( 4 10s) really cuts in my free time and energy reserves. I actually have Tuesday's post all ready to go. ;)
Have fun at your fiber festivals--a bit green with envy here right now!
*smiles*

You have been busy and lots on the go but it sounds like lots is near finishing also. Great on the organisation with the yarn.

You're keeping busy it seems! No time for blog writing when crafting needs to be done :D
