YOP Update – Feb 5, 2012

 
It’s been a fun week for me in the land of squishy fibre.  (It was an adventurous week otherwise, but I probably shouldn’t go into great detail about that ’cause it’s work related.  Lets just say knitting would have helped.)  Anyway, all is well and it’s a sunny day here so I might finally get some pictures of a few things to share with everyone.  On the fibre front, Nerd Wars Tournament Four kicked off this week.  I am exceedingly happy to be back on Team Hellmouth and hanging out with all the other Buffy the Vampire Slayer knitters.  I’m trying very hard to make sure that the projects I turn in are already on my list or are small and not taking up much time.  My first project was a dishcloth so I am ahead on my personal dishcloth challenge of 24 cloths this year!  I am almost finished my second shawl for the 12 in 12 challenge and even though I have been desperately wanting to cast on Walnut Grove, (I can use it for Nerd Wars), I am making myself finish Arrowhead first.  Most importantly, Algonquin is still coming along nicely and hopefully Tanya will have it by the end of the month.
How was your week?  Linky is at the bottom.
