YOP Update Jan 22, 2012

 I’m pleased to report that I feel like this has been a much more productive week.  I finished the Reunion Cowl and it’s been added to the” needs to be blocked pile”.  (Is any one else bad at that or is it just me?  I don’t know why getting things blocked is such a challenge for me?)  I have finished my second January dishcloth.  I’ll post it later in the week.  But that does mean that the dishcloth challenge is on track on at least for this month going strong.  I have finally reached the point in Flavia where I feel like I am making progress and actually believe that I might be able to finish it by the end of the month and get it posted into the 12 in 2012 group.  The notorious blanket has been returned to the coffee table.  It is certainly harder to ignore while it’s staring at me every time I sit down to work on something else.  All in all I’m happy with the progress.
This weeks goals are to block both items waiting to be finished, return my Victoria to the living room and use it, and write-up the pattern that I created to make my husband’s Christmas Scarf.  It really is all doable. Wish me luck. 
Looking forward to reading about everyone else’s week.  Hope it was a good one.

    Best of luck with your goals for the week, I know you can achieve them. 🙂

  • sandy

    Wow, you have had a good productive week. Thanks for info on the dish cloth challenge. I considered getting in on, but decided I best stay the course……too many things going.

  • Faith

    Busy, busy, busy….sounds like you are making great progress! I have decided on getting on with a blanket I’ve been ignoring but I mustn’t ignore it anymore, I reckon I need more luck than you!

  • Minding My Own Stitches

    Your stats look very good – about half way on everything. I’m usually more productive in January, February and March than in summer or December so I think your list looks do-able!

    Can’t wait to see the Reunion cowl blocked. I’m lucky because I have a spare bedroom where I can leave things on pins for days on end 🙂

  • Erin

    Wow, that’s awesome! I’ve never kept track so faithfully of my WIP and would be a little ashamed if I did have a record of it. There are some going back a looooong time!

  • Emma

    Well done for getting so much done this week, it’s impressive. And I have to say, I don’t have the blocking problem as I’ve only blocked 2 things on my life!
