Year of Projects - Week 6


Good morning, almost afternoon here...we are in the middle of a "snow event" it snowed a couple inches yesterday, will start snowing this afternoon for several more hours, will continue all day tomorrow and won't stop until Tuesday morning...not a ton of accumulation....expecting 6-12 inches by Tuesday....we'll see if I have a snow day tomorrow again...these long weekends are getting to be a habit...and another possible storm coming in for Thursday.....this is all happening in the middle of testing...so it is becoming an issue....I actually need to run out today before the snow starts....yesterday I went out for a few minutes, and promptly fell, as it is all ice under the snow...a nice big bruise on my knee....

So what is up with the crafting? Well last night I finished a pair of socks I started in January of 2013! Yeah! I am really trying to finish up some old wip's...will post a picture on Friday....

So this week, I have worked on socks...finishing the H's Everyday Socks and starting sock #2 of Stepping Stones....

I have also worked on my Hawk Baktus.....I really want to finish that.....also, on Saturday, I did some organizing...take a look at my Saturday post...I think it'll help me finish up some projects, as I can actually see them now....

I am fighting startitis, but am managing it...trying not to start anything new until I finish a few more things....lots of shawls and socks still on the needles...have a sweater on the hook....and a couple of motif blankets I'd like to complete...trying to get things under control...

How nice to finally finish a project, right? Now just wrap up a couple more and you can cave to startitis! :D

Well done on finishing the socks and the organisation will hopefully help with finishing more which of course leads to starting more projects ;)
