Monday’s POA – week 9, 2018

 

 

Lake Tahoe

Here were my goals from last week:

  • Mama’s Bukid – Page, 5, row 10 – get halfway through row 10. ==> DONE!
  • 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. ==> I hope to get to this this coming weekend. I have some errands to run and some major tasks (my corporate taxes is one of them) but I hope I will be able to get this done this coming 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! ==> I spent some time at QuiltCon but with our trip last weekend I was not feeling the itch to be at QuiltCon. I have to remember this next time around not to plan too many things one weekend after another.
  • 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. 🙂
        • ==> DONE!
    • Weasley Sweater for Kayla – continue to work on the sleeves ==> DONE!
    • Cowl – continue to do a round a day on this project. ==> DONE!

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

  • Mama’s Bukid – Page, 5, row 10 – FINISH ROW 10
  • Celtic Solstice – finish piecing the backing!
  • I also need to get a list of my UFOs jotted down for my guild meeting in a couple of weeks.  We are doing a UFO challenge and I’m not sure what UFOs I have. I know I have a bunch but it’s always helpful to have a list so I can be mindful of what I’m working on.
  • Rainbow Garden – do a little bit of work on this on Sunday.
  • Knitting projects:
    • Warm and Snug socks – February pattern for the Cosy Sock Club
      • I have one more stripe for the foot and then I plan to finish the toes and this project will be a done. And since I used 2 balls of knit picks felici, that’s 2 balls I can mark on my “used” yarn for this week.
    • Weasley Sweater for Kayla – continue to work on the sleeves.  I am at the point where I need to have Kayla try this on.  That will tell me how much longer I need to go.
    • Cowl – continue to do a round a day on this project.

Happy Crafting!
