YOP #41

So Monday I ended up coming home sick, so I made three pairs of fingerless gloves..1 for me, 1 for a swap and the third for a friend's daughter..those aren't finished yet...

I also realized I'm probably not gonna get my Lanesplitter done for Rhinebeck...I have a lot of decreasing to do....

I finished the Pond Friends toy last Sunday..the shower was was a big hit..

Yesterday I spent the day at Stitches East and yes, I bought stuff....silly people...and I started a sock with some Zombie I can be knitting on them during The Walking Dead....

but I was restrained, as I had a list...I got everything on my list and only added 2 skeins and something from Namaste.....

I will back at Stitches today...helping a friend in her booth....I am posting pictures on follow me through that little button...................over there in the side bar................................>>>>>>

I'm trying to figure out if two of the things on my done list are the I've done a few swaps...and try using code words at times.....hmmm..

That does sound restrained. Excellent use of your enforced knitting time!! Hope you have a lovely day today :-)

Marsha said...

You are getting a lot done on your list. So glad you found some lovely yarn to purchase. Your restraint is impressive. I would have had a car full of yarn if I had been there.

Christine said...

Showing restraint at a yarn event... Wish me luck with that In A couple weeks! Good for you though!

Sam I Am...... said...

You are very good! I too would have gotten much more because I would be telling myself I was "saving on shipping"!LOL!
Sorry you were ill but it certainly wasn't wasted time.

Holly said...

You have so many WIPs! I don't know how you stay on top of them! I have five at the moment and believe me, that is stressing me out!!!

Crochet by Conroy said...

Holy cow. I cannot believe how many projects you've finished. Keep up the good work!

You're supposed to shop at Fiber Festivals. When else will you see all that lovely selection of yarn face-t0-face. And honestly ... I spend more time regretting the things I didn't buy than the ones I did! As long as there's food on the table and a little leftover, what's the harm?
