YOP #50...close to the end

I absolutely lost my mojo this week.....I've put a few stitches on a few things here and there, but that's about it...I was uninspired by everything and stuck in a couple of places...

Last night I picked up my Have I Ever Steered You Wrong socks again and was determined to figure out the short row heel....YEAH for me...after two youttube videos..I got it!  But there is a hole...I plan on stitching that up from the inside...since it's worsted they are going fast!

That's about it....I did a few more rows of Shark in the Woods...not sure I enjoy cabling much...I have to keep little notes to keep it all straight..sorry pic is so big...

I committed to making 2 Elsa blanket doll things.....I need to find some Elsa blue yarn....

I thought about the Christmas presents I need to make...yep..just thought about them....

Got a package of yarn from my friend in Norway, a sock kit from Simply Socks, ordered yarn for the new Downton Abbey MKAL with Jimmy Beans, even though I have not yet finished either the Game of Thrones or the Outlander one...ordered some of the Yarnmas yarn from Jimmy Beans...and received a swap package....whew!  So my mail has been busy with yarn, even if I haven't.....

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend....

I am working on the last minute things I have decided at the last minute to do. Argh. 2 of them were known for most all this past year. But no, I wait until Dec to start them. Good thing cowls are fairly quick.

Seems like I never stop thinking about Christmas knitting. As soon as one project's off the needles, I think up two or three more! One step forward and two steps back. Good thing Christmas comes no matter what's done or not done.

Yarn-y goodness in the mail? That's awesome. I'm signed up for a sock club next year so I can expect packages of yarn-y goodness every other month :)

I think it's nice to lose the moyo. Just take a rest (Your list looks impressive!). The moyo will come back. All the best Regula

I have to make lots of little notes and I use the highlighter a lot as well! I love the sound of the post!

I'm still missing my knit mojo too. I hoping that doing a bit of cross stitch and some crochet will help.
