Year of Projects: Week 38

Look at me, two weeks in a row!  Wasn't sure I was going to do one, as thought I'd be heading out for the day....nope...woke up early because I couldn't breathe...took some medicine and now have been dealing with a stomach thing...yuck!  But did make plans to go to a new-to-me fiber festival next weekend!

So I've added some rows to my el dia de los muertos socks....on the second repeat of colors now...

I also finished the second ball on my Fortune's Shawlette.

I made these for a friend.  She goes to an artist's retreat at squam and always gives me the yarn she receives.  She asked for these last fall and I just got them finished for two reasons...one...black yarn! two..pain in hands.

I also put the last two stripes on my Spring is in the Air socks....they now join the pile of socks that need heels!  The only difference is that sock 1 is already done...

So that was me this week!  How about you? If you leave a comment, I will visit your blog too.

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.

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

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 ruffle...it'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)

I can't wait to see the socks finished! I had three knitting projects when I joined this summer, I've added a bunch, but not as long as your list! I think seeing that list every day would stress me out a little! :)

I agree that working with black yarn is tough. I am doing a lot of that right now. UGH! Your stripes are so happy and joyful looking. Looking forward to seeing the shawlette next week.

I love the colours in your socks, hope you are feeling better and have a great weekend.

Love those socks and would love to make them for my daughter as she is really into Mexican culture as an art teacher. So sorry you aren't feeling well....it's awful to be sick! You are getting a lot done though despite it all! Yes, black yarn is difficult to say the least. I can't wait to hear about your yarn fest next week and acquisitions?
Get better fast!

Minding My Own Stitches said...

Yeah, black yarn... not fun. At least now I remember to pick lighter colour yarns when I'm at yarn shops!

Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well. But yay for a new Fiber festival! Have fun!

And congrats for two weeks in a row. Looks like our schedules are aligned ;)
