I'm ready to start the heel flap on the first of Snape's Stockings...not that I've started it but I'm at that point. That's always helpful. It means I worked a few rounds here and there this past week :) 

And then....well, I went and started a new project. Oops. I suppose it's because I need to make two more of the Sacrificial Goats so, you know, I should get going...and luckily, they're fairly quick projects and I can do it all in parts...but they're still going to take a little while. Sooooo....yeah. 

Anyway, moving on...remaining lists (hahahahahahahahaha!)........

That's really all I have for you today. Nothing exciting. Just hanging around with Little Man and Stormageddon, trying to find some sense of sanity and normalcy. We'll see how that goes. 

I hope you've all had a lovely week and weekend and so on and so forth :)


  1. Any progress is good progress right now, well done!

  2. Normalcy will come again. It may not be the same as before Stormageddon made his entrance, but it will come back. So glad to hear you got a little crafting time this week. Hopefully, you will get a wee more each day, just to help you with stress relief.

  3. Maybe finding normalcy will be aided when Husband's out of your hair.... I mean back at work :) Good luck!

  4. i agree with Marsha and Lynn Normalcy will reign once again once the hubby resumes work :)

  5. I think your doing fantastic and progress is progress no matter what it is. Best of luck this week with hubby gone back to work. You'll find your routine I've no doubt.

  6. I hope you have a good week and can combine knitting with baby care and all the other million things you probably have calling your name. In my day there was no "paternity" leave but just as well as males back then were just another baby to take care would have been like having twins! LOL! I hope they've changed by now! enjoy your children and relax as much as possible.
