13. Stormageddon's Stripey Hat: started May 22, 2014; finished May 23, 2014

I've finished nothing new this week but I did my FO Friday post about Stormageddon's Stripey Hat this past Friday. You can go view it here. I'm okay with that since I've finished four projects this month...

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

4. Greyson: started May 29, 2014 

I finished up the first of my Oreo Socks and the second one has been started. I'm not very far along but, you know, it's progress :) I also started Greyson this week. This time around, I'm doing the smallest size. I'm to the point where I can start knitting in the round and that's lovely. I dislike purling for long stretches because it takes FOR.EV.ER. So, knitting in the round shall be a grand thing...and I will like it. 

Oh, and Stormageddon is, I assume, growing and moving and shaking. I've noticed significantly more movement with this one than I did with Little Man. I don't know if that's because I know what I'm looking for this time around or if baby really is moving more. Or both. 


The remaining lists look like this (I think):

 Secret Sock Club Bags
(These bags are already set up with pattern and yarn - I just pick one at random and no, I don't remember what I put in there right now...I can go look later, if you're really interested. I really probably should...but, honestly, nah...)
