Year of Projects: Year 6 Week 6

It is blocking now, this was before blocking.....

2019 Finishes!!!!!
Muertos: 8/13/17-1/19/19
Who Socks: 10/7/18-1/22/19 (the Who socks were never on my list)
My Shelly Valentine: 2/10/16-2/9/19 (almost three years exactly!!!)

Look at that!  I have another finish!  I am trying hard to work on the WIPs....so this is my third WIP done this year...and I have not cast on anything new...yet!  I will be casting on a few new things during this long weekend....

Took a break from writing this to run back to House #1.....we had to feed the birds, Hubs had to drop off his car for an oil change.....and I was picking up some more stuff....we are slowly moving into House #2 - the Homestead.....and going back to house #1 is like visiting my own LYS...but my stash is split....so today I am going to update my Stash on Ravelry with the "Where it is Located" option as I watch The Walking Dead marathon....I did bring back a bag and a basket of yarn.....


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 - would like to finish for the fall

Venetian Cowl (July 1, 2018)

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)- 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) - Took it out, at the separation of arms, looks really big!
Bulky Cowl - this hurts my hands to work on...think I need slippery needles...

Light in Shadows (1/14/14) - I love this so much...need to start the new direction, so need to sit down and figure it out..
 
Willow Fields (9/6/14) - ran out of yarn, waiting on yarn, may have to frog.

Bags:
Beach Bag: (started May 2010)  Just needs lining sewn in, I used it this year without the lining...so may just call it a day on this....

Going between two houses has got to be exhausting. How long before you are at the Homestead permanently? Doing good on cleaning up those WIP's.

Good for you on your finishes so far this year. Is that FO that's pictured your Shelly Valentine? The colors look very Valentine-y. :)

Good for you! What homestead? Where? I missed something....are there pictures? I am a house fanatic....especially rural. I can't wait to see it? Is it a 'fixer-upper'? I love those too. Love your 'valentine' knitting...so pretty! Keep up the good work and enjoy your new place.

Look at you go, finishing your wips! It must be exciting but exhausting going between the two houses, glad a tv marathon is on the cards.

We had to move out 100% and move in 100% from our old house to our new house. Cross state lines. Close on both houses on the same day. End electric and water there and start all the here on the same day. It was crazy. Your timeline is much more sane I think. And as for your bulky yarn hurting your hands, I get it. I rarely use bulky because of that reason.

Two houses? All the more space for stash I say! lol.
