Year of Projects - Week 7

I have started two new projects this week, in addition to my Glenn Lives socks I started last week...*sigh*...but it has gotten me out of my mojoless rut!

Stopover...I joined the Bang Out a Sweater KAL with the Mason-Dixon ladies...
I have a couple of inches before starting the arms....I do want to make it longer, but I put in the slight shaping that it had (haven't done shaping before) but I don't think it'll matter...I did buy an extra ball of yarn....

And since Valentine's Day was coming up, I started this...
It's this free pattern...It's taking me a bit longer than I thought it would...

Whoops, just knocked down the zombies by my keyboard..
These are overflow The Walking Dead ones from my collection
Supernatural is on top, Walking Dead on the bottom....I'm searching for a Carol...

And so The Walking Dead comes back tonight....I am still working on my Glenn Lives socks...
But Desert Vista Yarn does a KAL when the season I think I'm going to cast on my If They Kill Carol tonight...
I have to wind it....I just bought this pattern for it...someone else had the idea to use it for this is a four stripe, self-striping yarn....

I have one more day off.....was feeling rough today, really tired and ears are hurting...Yesterday I read...started a book at 5 in the morning and read all day....finished it and downloaded the third in the series and started that one....which may be why I am so tired today!  They are a series of books by Gil McNeil set in a seaside yarn shop in characters...the latest one should pop up in my sidebar Goodreads feed, if you are interested...

And that is it for me....catch you next week...

I love the colours of your cowl - although I thought it was a sock to start with! The sweater looks fab.

I love that you took a picture of your fallen zombies. All of your zombies! :^) The cowl you're making (for Valentine's) is cool. Great color in that yarn. And I look forward to seeing the sweater grow. You're busy now that you got your mojo back!

Looking forward to seeing more of the sweater and the cowl is cool! Love the zombies pic and hope you feel less tired today :)
