No finishes this week, actually I hardly worked on anything.....I had a root canal on Monday...then I was getting my infusion for my PsA on Tuesday.  However, because of the root canal, I couldn't get my infusion...as it is considered an "open wound" and there is a chance for infection....so I've gone about a week longer without the medication in my body.  The weather was also rainy and grey.  Although cold doesn't affect me that much (unless my joints get cold), rainy weather makes me ache, even with the medication.  So I spent much of this week just trying to deal with that...so very little crafting went on....

I did get the heel turn done on my Zombie Valentine socks..and since The Walking Dead starts tonight, I'd like to finish, at least one...I am now on the toe...
Also got the heel turn done on my second Folding Chairs socks...so I almost have a new pair..
And the Jessica Jones cowl keeps on going....

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    

Knit: 
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...
Multnomah (8/21/16)- stuck on feather and fan edging, have too many stitches, in timeout. Stitch count continues to be off.
Bulky Cowl - this hurts my hands to work on...think I need slippery needles...

Root canal... Ugh! And a missed infusion too? Poor you!
Hope things look up soon!

Fun socks! Hopefully knitting and TV keep your mind off the aches and pains.

Oh my goodness! That picture (of you????) at the end of your post what frightful! Root canals are no fun (I'm too well acquainted with them), but I'm really sorry to hear having one affects your ability to have an infusion for your PsA. I hope you're soon able to and that you get to feeling better.

It sounds like a dreadful week. I hope this week was better. Love the pic at the end - I suspect that summed up how you felt!
