YOP Update April 15th

It’s been a scattered knitting week for me.  I’ve picked up whatever project strikes my fancy at any given moment and work on it for a bit.  It’s really perfectly fine and it means that I have made progress on a bunch of things.  I blame the lack of focus on the rather high level of stress that’s been hovering around me this week, and unfortunately it threatens to get worse before it gets better.  But that’s just the way life is sometimes   I will knit my way through it and maybe come out on the other side with a few more finished objects.

I did however, finish the last of the knitting for Oeste and only had to fudge the very last triangle a little bit.  Now I just have to sew it all up.  It will be off the list soon.  There are  also some super fun things happening with the sock yarn blanket or as it will now be known as, the Epic Blanket of Insanity (or EBI for short).  (Thanks Suzy for letting me use that name too.  It’s perfect.  If you want to you can check out Suzy’s blog here.)  More about those details later this week, but I will say that my EBI has become my go to project (at least for now) and it’s great when I am too tired or cranky or stressed to focus on something bigger.  Needless to say, it’s gotten a lot of love from me this week.

In other exciting new, I’ve ordered the yarn I need to start working on the TKGA Master Handknit Program.  I’ve printed everything off and have it all organized in a binder.  In theory when the yarn arrives, I will be ready to start.

So, not a lot of change on the list.  3 More balls out and one more dishcloth finished.
