Nothing new finished this week.....and I'm working on WIPs not on the list!  So my friend's baby boy was born and I have not finished the sweater, so that is first priority

 Just getting to the ears!

....then I volunteered to do a test knit for self stripe yarn....I think today I'm going to wind the majority of my self stripe yarn, so it is ready to go...I know, I know that whole thing about winding yarn before using...but my setup is a pain in the I try to wind a bunch at a time.  

Since this is the year of the self stripe...I'm going to wind a bunch of it! And since I'm going to try that Box o' Socks thing...I do want it all ready to go....

My husband just told me to take a picture of all the project bags with projects in them and then list their contents...maybe I'll do that!

And that is my plan....

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
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.

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...

Baby sweaters go quickly so I am sure you will be done with that yet this week.

Your hubby has a great idea. But then might be a bit scary too. LOL I stopped putting my yarn in project bags as I change my mind too often.

I like winding a bunch of yarn at one time too. Same as you, that way it is all ready for me when I am getting ready to do a pattern. SO I think your smart to do that.

Lovely teal for baby boy. I peered in at the colourwork but can't see much yet :)

I like to wind my yarn when I'm ready for it, otherwise I tend to lose the ballbands... but that's just me ;(

lol. Nothing like a deadline to get one to finish a wip. That baby will be wearing that sweater in no time.

I like how the cardigan is so tiny! What a great color too. I also like how your husband gave you a great organization idea. Mine helped me with my books spreadsheet, something I just remembered I need to update with all of the books I've been consuming.

The baby sweater looks great (did you say ears?) I love the list - I couldn't get on with 9inch needles, I had to knit onto my usual long circular. And as for lining bags - any bag I have knitted have been finished and used without a lining!

I'm curious about the ears on the baby sweater, too. Hoping to see it finished soon. The colors you've chosen are fun!

What fun colors in that sweater. I'm curious about the ears too. I hope you get a picture before sending it off!
