I won’t lie. The last week(s) has kicked my butt pretty hard so there’s not a lot of exciting things I am inclined to report on today. Mostly just glad to have gotten out on this side of the daisies I think! So a short and sweet year of projects update is in order. Will try to blog more good stuff later in the week!
Carry Overs from my first YoP:
Movie Socks- Cast on in 2013, Frogged 8/11/13
- Elphaba the Sequel
Semele- Cast on 5/27/13, Finished 8/1/13. This one feels good. REALLY good. Took me 4 or 5 tries to get past the first chart successfully. Once I started adding lifelines every few rows it got better. By the time I picked it back up I never moved the last one I put in place. And I only regretted that once!
- Epic Blanket of Insanity I’ve finished the 9th row and started the 10th! I might opt to add squares as one of my long-term projects for the new Harry Potter Knit & Crochet House Cup term. It started today! YIPPEEEE
New and Exciting

Deranged Dad Socks.Started August 2012, Frogged 8/11/13,
aster Egg On Acid Socks-DOA as of August, 2013.
- Fishnet Socks- Yep. Definitely right on the initial assessment of more of a pain in the ass than they’re worth. But I keep plugging away. Pretty sure this one’s destine for a fraternal twin instead of an identical

You knew the list would grow. Heck, I knew the list would grow. I’m trying to take the starts a little slower, work on the long-term projects, don’t start other things I can’t finish in a night or two. So far so good.
