Y3: Self-Imposed Year of Projects - Update #31

Forgive me readers, for I have been sick for the last few days. ::sigh:: I don't know what exactly is wrong but it involves a nasty cough, congestion that just sits in my chest, trouble breathing (which is partly due to Stormageddon taking up valuable real estate), a sore throat, pulled muscles (from coughing so much), my jaw hurts (again, from all the coughing), random headaches, and not really being able to do much about it. 

So, this is probably going to be short and sweet....

2. Oreo Socks: started March 8, 2014
3. Baby Stormageddon
4. Pacific Shawl: started June 8, 2014
5. Swatch for The Dude: started July 16, 2014

6. Sacrificial Goat: started July 27, 2014

I've not worked on much this week other than the Oreo Socks and the Sacrificial Goat. I have all the pieces done for the goat but I haven't sewed them together. It's on my to do list. 

Stormageddon is head-down, semi-crooked, and moving around quite a bit. I had an ultrasound on Thursday and the little booger would not hold still. He's measuring long but considering Little Man came out at 22" long, I'm not surprised. 

Unfortunately, I started feeling like crap on Wednesday so by the time my OB appointment came about on Friday, I was miserable. 

My remaining lists look like this:

Children's Items
1. Swirl Hat
2. Elefante
3. Nottingham
4. Shaun
5. Gramps Cardigan (need to purchase - $6)
6. Smaug Hat

Items for Me (Selfish Knitting, FTW!)
1. Hermione Hearts Ron
2. Godric's Hollow Hat
3. Jabberwonky (which might be in the SSCB below but I don't remember) *
4. Gallifrey Fingerless Mitts
5. Weeping Angel Socks *
6. Stormont
7. Drip Drip Drop (which might be in the SSCB below but I don't remember) *

* I'll probably only pick one of these but, you know, choices and all...

 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...)

1. Little Man's Baby Blanket
2. Susan's Hat (adult and child versions)
3. Assorted Dishcloths
4. Traveling Vines projects (adult socks, baby socks, scarf, hat, fingerless mitts, shawl, etc.)
5. Pinwheel Market Bag
6. Anything else that comes along at the right time

That's honestly all I have for you this week. perhaps I won't feel like crap next week....


  1. I love the mittens and I hope you feel better soon.

  2. Sorry you're feeling poorly. I hope things clear up soon :)

  3. Oh poor thing, it is such a pain being poorly and not being able to do anything. At least you have a very good excuse for curling up somewhere cosy with a hot lemon and honey and doing very little!

  4. Oh boo on that damn sick bug. Sorry you're suffering. Hope it goes soon. Please get some R&R.

  5. oh sorry to hear your suffering... hope your feeling better soon

  6. ah sorry to hear your unwell... hugs... hope you feeling better soon x

  7. Great progress with all those FOs, and I hope you are feeling better soon. I seem to have something quite similar (cough, all-around-achy-ness and misery) so I feel your pain... :(
