Yarn Along: Week 9

Well going to post at least something.....

No new finishes this week...I had my infusion on Tuesday and Thursday, I finally picked up some needles...so have been working on socks....but nothing finished...

2018 Finished Projects:
Millennial Slytherin Mitts - Jan 6, 2018

So just some sock knitting...I did cast on my St Patrick's Day socks last night, but that's just laughable that they will be done for the actual day....I also rolled my Chubby Hedgehog into a ball...think I'm going to do the Calzetta hat with it

Today, I spent the day working on the socks test knit...going to be doing my first afterthought heel...whee!

I think that is about it....just finished about three hours of lesson plans and I'm tired...so not taking new pictures....just going to post my ongoing list and call it a day....

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...

Splediferous Blanket - (4/15/17) Roald Dahl club, mitered blanket


Socks:
Kai-Mei: (April 2012) - has not changed, 
Carlos and Arne socks (July 3 2015)- using a 9" needle...keep losing stitches.

My Shelly Valentine (2/10/16) - should finish for this year's Valentine's Day, yeah, that did not happen

I hope being able to have your infusion last week has helped you feel better. Looking forward to seeing your new WIPs!

I do not miss lesson plans. Does your school require you to turn the week's in the Friday before so your principal has them on hand in case you're absent?

A pair of socks in time for St. Pat's would be pushing it too far! Glad to hear you got your infusions; hopefully you feel better soon!

I am glad your infusion helped so you could pick up needles again.

Even though you won't have your St Patrick socks done this year, they will be ready for next year.

I have not done an afterthought heel yet either. I need to...I haven't even done a FLK heel....I must be in a rut! LOL! Good for you, test knitting! I want to order St. Patrick's Day yarn and Valentine yarn too but they won't be finished this year for sure! I heard Lolo Did It has holiday themed yarns even Cinco De Mayo. Enjoy Spring Break when you get it!
