Y3: Self-Imposed Year of Projects - Update #12

Happy Sunday!

It's been a rather busy, yet mundane week around here. I'll be honest, not a lot was accomplished...but, we'll get to it anyway :)

Nope, nothing new finished. I'm not surprised actually. I don't expect to finish much for awhile...unless I start another small project and I might. But I haven't.

 Works-In-Progress (WIPs)
1. Dragon's Egg Socks: started September 2, 2013
2. Oreo Socks: started March 8, 2014

3. Baby. 

I worked a little bit on my Oreo Socks this week. I have maybe 3" from cuff to where I am right now...on the first sock. I just haven't spent much time knitting. I'd rather be sleeping.

Anyway, moving on...wait, what? What do you mean I have another WIP to talk about? No I do-.....wait, what? Does that say...? IT DOES!


Yes, you read that correctly. I'm working on a really big WIP :) And as I'm officially 12 weeks along, I can share. I suppose I could have shared earlier but the common practice is to wait until 12 weeks. So, I waited until 12 weeks...and, oh look, it coincides with the 12th update for this year :)

It certainly explains why I haven't done much knitting and have been going to bed early and have been feeling like poo for the last three months, doesn't it?

Anyway, yes...moving on for real...

  1. Congratulations! I didn't read the rest, just saw that!

    1. There honestly wasn't much else there :)

  2. My gosh! Ho'omaka'i! Wee! Another bambino/bambina. Hope you're feeling better now. Now you can make more baby knits! Yay!

    1. I wish I were feeling better. Nausea is apparently my friend and I don't want it. I was doing okay for a couple days but now I'm back to spending my mornings in a semi-nauseated funk. ::sigh::

  3. Congratulations - I can only see nursery and babywear in your future!! I didn't knit when I had my two, so I would go into baby overdrive!!

    1. There was a point when I couldn't knit much with Little Man around but now he's willing to let me knit...just in time for the next one. Then I figure I'll have six months or so where I can still knit and then at least a year where I can't knit much. We'll see...

  4. Woohoo, congratulations! I hope you feel better soon :)
