YOP: Week 30

Helloooooo out there!!!!!!  It has been 7 weeks! Seven since I last blogged.....I could give you tons of excuses, but it is what it is!

So I am going to use the new banner....made by Cyra of Free Form Stitching

Most of the people in YOP go July 1 to June 30, so they have recently posted their lists and goals for the year.  I go January to December...

So what have I been up to in the past 7 weeks?

Well look there! I have finished two shawls!  

 I would have another done, but I ran out of I can either buy another skein or rip it out and weigh it, as it is a corner to corner type shawl...haven't decided yet...

I have put work into several of my projects....but for awhile I had no mojo, so didn't work on anything...back to the mojo and want to work on ALL THE THINGS! I have been good and not cast on or started crocheting anything new....but I do have to do that a baby is on it's way....she is being induced on Tuesday...yeah!  So I'll have some baby things next week, hopefully! So I guess that is it for me...also I'm typing this on my desk computer and there is no a/c in this room and we are having a heat I'll say goodbye for now...

Beautiful shawls!!! Glad you got your mojo back!!

Marsha said...

Yea for getting your mojo back. That is really scary when it disappears............kind of like writers block. Your shawls are very nice but what a bummer to run out of yarn on the third one. I would love to see a C2C shawl. I have just learned that type of crochet myself and really like it.

Your list is very impressive and you are making good progress on it.

Holly said...

Really love the green shawl with the trim!

sharon said...

Your list is impressive! Love the shawls

Stefanie Ng said...

Glad to reconnect with you. This is some list.

Becki said...

Your shawls are pretty. So glad you got your mojo back. I thought I was loosing mine, but I think it just took a break for a few days this week. Too much to make. So little time.

Ruth said...

Great that you've gotten your mojo back and lovely to see you back. Well done on the finished shawls.

Dorothy said...

I'm also in a shawl mood at the moment - your two look great. I'm glad I'm not the only one with an impressive list of WIPs. Good to hear you have your mojo back and will look forward to catching up again next week. xox

Love your shawls and I have to order yarn as I will be starting a shawl after my visitors leave. Yes, I hate it when I am in that mod where nothing looks enticing to work on but thank goodness it doesn't last too long! I usually entice myself by ordering some new yarn/supplies/books and spending hours on Ravelry and podcasts until it passes! LOL!
I should really do January through December as it would be a better time for me. July is always when my family visits and I have yard work but they're coming the end of this week so I managed to get my list done but will probably not be on the next couple weeks. They're a houseful and a handful but I love it and we have loads of laughs!
Have a great week and I love our's like mine...never-ending! So many projects, so little time!

It is funny how mojo comes and goes isn't it? Both for blogging and for knitting. Glad yours is back. Your list is uber impressive.

Lucy Bowen said...

Lovely shawls, I'm so glad you have your motivation back and good luck for getting the baby things done this week.

Donna J Capps said...

Nice to meet you Tammy. You really have quite a list of projects. Your shawls look great. I can't wait to see the baby items. I just finished some for a 9 months old girl. That was a change for me and a bit of a challenge.
