Year of Projects: Week 37

Week 37!  How did that happen?  I haven't posted since Week 24.  Part of the reason has been this disease.  I never know when I'll be able to craft.  I just came off of two+ weeks of not being able to knit or crochet because of the pain in my hands.  I did crochet a bit last night, but my fingers are very crampy and I have some pain in my left hand this's very frustrating!  But that hasn't stopped me from buying yarn!

So this is where I was when I stopped week 24, let's do some updating.... (updates in BOLD)

Works In Progress:         
WIPS: Crochet:
Round Ripple: (Started 2006 (?) Aiden)-not sure he'd want this anymore, being a high school freshman and all, but I think I'll finish it for him. He is now a sophomore.
Around the World Afghan: (April 2010): about ¼ done - I looked at this recently and I'm still liking it, so I'll keep it...maybe make it a baby blanket instead.
Sunrise Sunset Afghan: this has been hibernating awhile, 6 squares done. I still love the look of this.
Tabard Tunic (NW Diss 2/1/14) - Haven't made a final decision on this yet.

Throwback Poncho 2/19/17
  - I pulled this out yesterday, will start working on it again

Fortune's Shawlette - 5/20/17 - I am almost done with ball #2, have one more ball to go..this will be huge!     

Learn to Knit Afghan: (started 2010): 3 squares done, I put this in the giveaway yarn bags..not thrilled with colors....will use squares at school for water bottles..

Shark in the Woods (11/27/14)- I really love this, but it's a lot of cabling and I'm not a fan..about 1/2 done.
Vanilla fingerless mitts (12/25/15) - Think I'm going to frog and do different mitts or crochet them.
Zombie Vixen mitts (10/17/15)- why I may crochet the others...have these and still working on them, again cabling
Garter Path Shawlette (5/30/16)- I have frogged this a couple of times...
Swinging with Winkle (6/4/16)- I love this so much!  Just need to finish it! Added a few rows
Meandering Top (5/20/16) - Totally forgot about this...could get it done to wear in spring...I think I was debating whether to do the bottom's not a good placement for me...
Multnomah (8/21/16)- stuck on feather and fan edging, have too many stitches, in timeout
Bulky Cowl - this hurts my hands to work on...think I need slippery needles...
Slopes Sweater- (1/1/17)

Hi Tammy :)) I joined the group this year for the first time and I'm pretty happy I did. I have some non-conventional projects going, along with knitting, I'm doing a winter garden and cheese making. It's fun!

I LOVE all of your socks, I laughed at the heel dilemna...sorry for your pain, it's nice to see you're pushing through it. :)

If it's any comfort, I'm a few weeks behind as well, only I didn't get anything done. I didn't even manage to darn in the ends of the socks I finished weeks ago. Love your projects!

Oh my...all those heel-less socks. The ocd in me is itchy! lol.
I am sorry you haven't been feeling well. I hope things are back on track now.
And yes! Gryffindor colours!!

Looks to me like you have the opportunity to experiment by trying a different heel on each sock! Go on! You can do it!

Also, DAS MONSTER is super cute!

Oooh... Das Monster is adorable. And I got a kick out of all those heel-less socks.
