I have really not done much, the past week as been....trying....The spouse went in for a stress test on Tuesday. There was an issue. She was admitted to the hospital for an angiogram. There was a full blockage of one of her arteries. They finally did the stint on Friday and she came home Saturday. Obviously I was not allowed to visit.
So I was teaching (we were allowed to virtual teach these next two weeks, as the students are virtual, thank goodness!) and I had to do all of her chores...feeding the chickens, and the cats (inside and outside), keeping the wood stove full, and oh yeah, cooking.....The PSA I have really affects my knee and hip joints. The wood stove is in the basement. I teach in my yarn room, on the second floor. SO I had to go up and down stairs several times of day...by the end of each day, I was in a lot of pain and exhausted...so I would take pain medication and go to bed early.....so I really got nothing done...I think I put a couple of rounds on some socks and that was it....
Today (Sunday), I whipped up a pair of crocheted fingerless mitts (almost full) for her. She has never really worn gloves or mittens, but the HRT has changed her body composition in many ways. She is more cold now then she used to be....and doing all the work outside, her hands are freezing....so I pulled a skein of Lion Brand Wool-Ease out of my stash and just crocheted a pair...no pattern and I fit them to her as I worked on each section....

The 12 Cast-ons comes from Angela of YarnNYarns. She cast on a project a day and works on it for that day. Then she puts it away to pull it out and work on throughout the year. Pretty much all of my cast-ons are projects I have been wanting to start anyway, so I joined in this year....
Round Ripple: (Started 2006 (?) Aiden is now a senior..so maybe I finish it for him to take to college?
Around the World Afghan: (April 2010): about ¼ done - I'm not even sure where this is at the moment, with projects in two places. I'll think on this.
