Year of Projects: Week 17

So updating my goals from the past couple of weeks: Yeah, I didn't do any of those things.  I pretty much had no mojo this past week...there was a lot going on at work and it was a stressful week (I'm feeling overwhelmed and just over this school year right now)....and I wasn't feeling the best (my allergies have kicked in)...several days, I just came home and slept....I didn't go to knit night on Thursday because I just couldn't "people" anymore. I did get my infusion on Tuesday, so I shouldn't have too much pain for the next couple of weeks...

This week, we start one of our state tests....the next three weeks are absolutely crazy at school!  I am not going to add any new goals, until I get some of these cleaned up.

On Saturday, I went to the Connecticut Sheep and Wool, I'll do a post later in the week...
On Sunday, I did work on some stash stuff....I updated my Ravelry Stash and some of my projects...I like to do that when my mojo is gone, it makes me want to work on things...

I did carry my Kiss Me, I'm Irish socks around with me, but only put a couple of rows on them...they are almost to the heels...so have to decide on the heels I want...

April 8-14 goals:
This week, my goals are:
- to finish the Zombie Valentines
- finish or close to finish the Kiss Me, I'm Irish
- Finish the first sock on Hudson Bay
- 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

April 15-21 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)


April 22-29 goals:
- complete the previous lists
- swatch for the Tegna top, the Vintersol sweater and the Rainbow Cardi

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
 

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...

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

Yes, allergy season is here and I hope you can cope between that and your students. It's busy for everyone I think. Even me and I'm retired! LOL! I want to make the Irish socks but I have WIPs that need attention...I just watched Stitching the High Notes Episode 20 or 21 and she was doing Operation WIP....she motivates me!
Take care and may I ask what the 'infusion' is for? Whatever, I hope it helps and you feel better soon!

I hope the next few weeks go well - with wrapping a school year up and in feeling alright. You'll get your mojo back soon, I'm sure. I hope you have a great week, Tammy.

Allergies stinks. Hopefully they settle down this week. Then maybe your mojo will return too.

Chin up......schools almost over.

Hope the infusion has you feeling better soon. Sounds like you got lots done despite having no knitting mojo. Sorting stash is a good go-to project when knitting isn't cutting it.

One of my kids has had some testing already. The oldest will start in May. Hope you're feeling better by today.
Yeah, ST seems more in the 80's. I really like the kids. They're great actors. I can understand how you're picky about romance novels. I used to only read those before I joined GR and started following book bloggers.
