Self-Imposed Year of Projects: Update #2

I'm going to attempt to keep this short and sweet.......but, anyone that knows me will understand that this is probably something that won't happen because, really, I just can't seem to shut my mouth sometimes.

But, onward...

WIPs (the original WIP list)
1. Little Man's Cobblestone Baby Blanket: started July 2010; I'm still working on this, albeit slowly.
2. Mama's Simple Skyp Socks: started May 22, 2011; I've finished the first sock (awhile ago) but am still only on the cuff of the second.
3. Mama's Vanilla Socks: started December 6, 2011; I'm still working on the cuff of the first sock.
4. Baby Traveling Vines Socks: started September 18, 2010; I haven't dug these out of their hiding hole yet.
5. Little Man's Giraffe: started May 11, 2011; I haven't dug this out of its hiding hole, yet.
6. Icarus Shawl: started sometime around March 15, 2010; I haven't dug this out of its hiding hole yet, either....

As far as the WIPs go, I'm not doing horribly. I'm actively working on three of them and the other three are still in hiding. That's not horrible, is it?

Still think I'm crazy?


  1. I think thats a grand list, and three wip's on the go and three in hiding isn't so bad at all. Loved your first hat and I'm not putting the godrics hollow hat into my favs. I've got the Hermione loves Ron in my favs already lol. You've got a good selection between everything, looking forward to seeing it all come together.

  2. The planned not started number is one I think I would not want to keep. I've altered my list some....problem's going the wrong way. lol

    Just keep at, you'll get there, or at least partway there. Remember it's the journey not the destination.

  3. Uhh, yes! I thought I was crazy for getting up early every morning, but this is impressive. I don't know when you find time to knit....

  4. You do what you can as long as you're having fun.
