This week, my goals are:
- finish or close to finish the Kiss Me, I'm Irish
- figure out and work the Fish Kiss Lips heel on Keep Swimming
- wind the yarn for the two sweaters planned
- possible start moving yarn totes up to attic room, after logging what's in each tote
I really liked having a weekly goals list, so think I might keep it up....So I finished the Zombie Valentines, and not only finished the first Hudson Bay, BUT finished the pair of Hudson Bays! So I completed TWO pair of socks this week. In addition, I also finished my Fortune's Shawlette...so a total of THREE projects this week!
I will be doing the taxes later today (remember that whole procrastinator thing I mentioned?) I also spent some time with friends (and got that poster finished) and spent time with the Hubs...was sick for about a day and a half....marathoned the tv show The Arrangement, did some shopping, yarn and other varieties....AND met Patricia Polacco!!!!!!!!
My finished post with the socks and shawlette is here, if interested...
Patricia Polacco has been my favorite children's author for years. Meeting her was on my bucket list!! It was amazing hearing her speak and then meeting her....
I also stopped by Westport Yarns to browse...and picked up the new Knitscene and some yarn to make the Waves Tank..
So I am back to school tomorrow for the end of the year push...right now our final day is June 15 (was supposed to be June 6, damn snow days!) We have two state mandated tests coming up...one my students are used to taking, one is brand new....so I am brainstorming some ideas for behavior and this final push...
So this week's goals:
- work on Kiss Me, I'm Irish and get to heels (at least)
- do that FLK heel on my Keep Swimming socks
- swatch for the Waves Tank
- pull out The Meandering Top and see where I'm at (it's been hibernating)
I think that will be enough for the week.....and I still have the items from last week's goals

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
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

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...
