Monday’s POA – week 8, 2018

 

We’ll be heading home today.  My family loves a good road trip so hopefully the roads are clear.

Here were my goals from last week:

  • Mama’s Bukid – Page, 5, finish row 9 – I actually almost have half of row 9 done.  So I would really like to get through all of row 9 this week!
    • UPDATE – DONE!
  • Celtic Solstice – finish piecing the backing – I’m not going to be able to do this this week.  We will be out of town this weekend celebrating the long weekend so I will not be able to do the massive piecing this requires.
  • Rainbow Garden – work a bit on it on Sunday
    • UPDATE – DONE!
  • Knitting projects:
    • Warm and Snug socks – February pattern for the Cosy Sock Club
      • finish the leg so I can do the heels this coming weekend.
      • UPDATE – DONE!  This was a bit of a cheat as I just decided that I would work on the leg last week and wherever I was Friday I would start the heels.  And so I did.
    • Weasley Sweater for Kayla – continue to work on the sleeves
      • UPDATE – DONE!  I’m not done with the sleeves but I’m still working on it.  I didn’t take this project with me to Tahoe so I didn’t work on it this weekend but I’ll continue to work on it this week.
    • Cowl – since I finished the Martine hat, I moved my Cowl to one of the top 3 primary projects I work on each week.
      • UPDATE – DONE!  I have been working a bit on this project every day when I can.  This is the third item on my daily knitting projects so I do not always get to it every day.  But I do on most days so I am seeing a lot of progress on this one.

And for this week’s goals, here’s what I want to get done.

  • Mama’s Bukid – Page, 5, row 10 – get halfway through row 10.
  • Celtic Solstice – finish piecing the backing – Again, I’m not going to be able to do this this week.  This weekend is QuiltCon so I will not be able to get to this project over the weekend.
  • Rainbow Garden – Since I’ll be at QuiltCon this weekend this is another project I will not be able to work on.  Oh well.  I’m really excited about hanging out at QuiltCon and hopefully meet some fellow Twilters!
  • Knitting projects:
    • Warm and Snug socks – February pattern for the Cosy Sock Club
      • Work on the foot this week. I finished the heels this weekend and now I’m working on the foot.  I hope to get a lot of the foot done this week so I can finish these socks by next week.  I think I’m right on schedule.  I’m sure faster knitters are laughing at me right now but it’s all stockinette knitting and it is so BORING. I can’t sit and do round after round of stockinette knitting.  Instead I try to do about 5 rounds per day so by the end of this week I should be at the 35 round mark.  I need about 48 rounds for my foot so if I follow the plan I should be on track for finishing next week. 🙂
    • Weasley Sweater for Kayla – continue to work on the sleeves
    • Cowl – continue to do a round a day on this project.

Happy Crafting!
