Y3: Self-Imposed Year of Projects - Update #8

Hello, hello, hello! It's Sunday Funday here in the San Francisco Bay Area and that means it's time for another installment of my Self-Imposed Year of Projects update :)

Things just keep on rolling along...

7. Zombie ViXen Fingerless Mitts: started November 23, 2013; finished February 19, 2014

Oh lookie hey der! I've got another FO for this week :) I found some spoons and finished up my ZombieViXen Fingerless Mitts on Wednesday night. They've been given a couple soaks (the first one with some Eucalan and the second with that plus vinegar...the first bath turned a bit green) and should be dry but, honestly, I haven't checked. Oops. It's been a busy weekend!

Anyway, onward...

 Works-In-Progress (WIPs)
1. Traveling Vines Socks (Adult): started May 31, 2013
2. Dragon's Egg Socks: started September 2, 2013

My WIP list is EXTREMELY naked right now. I just haven't had enough energy to start something new. And I don't know what to start next and I'd prefer it not be another pair of socks or something done on teeny needles...sooooooo I need to spend some time pondering what I'm going to do next. And that's okay. I have a feeling that some dishcloths or some hats may make appearances, just to get some semi-instant gratification in.

My remaining lists are the same as they were last week :)

Stitches West is this weekend so I've been partaking in the shopping extravaganza and some LSG events and other follies. I expect that there will be a stash enhancement post in a day or two or three, if I enhanced at all (and I'm sure I have). 

I hope you've all had a lovely week :)


  1. Nice job on the finish! I look forward to a stash report!

  2. Yes, I'm guessing it's not even possible to go to Stitches West without partaking in some stash enhancement :)

    I feel the same about no more small needles - I've just cast on a Looped Loop on size 8 needles ... woohoo, it's knitting up fast!

  3. It would be a shame not to (enhance the stash)! Can't wait to see what you choose as your next project.

  4. we probably could have run into each other this weekend! I'm looking forward to seeing which booths caught your fancy :)

  5. we were probably at stitches simultaneously :) can't wait to see what came home with you!

  6. Ohhh lovely mittens great job on them and enjoy the enhancement, can't wait to see what you got.

  7. Looking forward to your Stitches haul post!
