Snowflake Hat - Jan 20, 2018
So I worked on some baby hats. I am making several for the daughter of a work colleague. Her daughter worked in our school as a substitute for awhile and she and I became friendly. So I've now made her three hats..her mom had the idea of a calendar of hats, which I thought was cool!
I am still working on the Jessica Jones cowl and I also picked up the Elephant Reserve sweater again....
I have been dealing with several medical issues and I realized last week that I was also suffering from some anxiety and depression...since one of the issues is peri-menopause, which can cause anxiety and depression..along with the auto-immune disease I have..it was a double whammy....but funnily enough, after giving voice to it and talking to a couple of people, I feel so much better...I feel lighter and just relieved...but I will keep track, now I am more aware.....
As I said on Saturday's post, I have given up all of my yarn clubs....but today, gave in and ordered some self-stripe I saw...I think I may do a self stripe post...or maybe a video blog about them....we'll see....
Works In Progress:
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
Fortune's Shawlette - 5/20/17 - Finished ball 2
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 ruffle...it's not a good placement for me...
