Stitch Along - Week 50

Okay...so, even though I posted last week, I did not provide a link...and I was a week off on the week count....sigh......

My ear is making me crazy, it crackles and bubbles contantly!  This is something new....I told the ENT doctor (who by the way, is young and very nice looking!) and he didn't seem to be worried about it....but it's driving me NUTS! Although it is not painful, just irritating.....

So all Saturday, I worked on a newborn hat...
I think it's big enough for a two year old....sigh.....I'm going to finish it and give it to a friend....I also missed a line in the chart.....

Then, on Sunday, I worked on some fingerless mitts for a gift.....
This is the second go-around, because AGAIN...it was way too big!!!

It was not a successful weekend......and I needed to take yesterday off to rest my hands.....

Next week, we work M-W and a half day on Thursday...my student teacher's last day is Friday.....it will be a big adjustment.....but kind of looking forward to it......

So did you have some positive project experience this week?  Please let me know....

Stitch Along - Week 48

Dudes!  I am so sorry I skipped last week!  I didn't remember until almost 8 pm EST...oh well....

I finished my sweater!  I have worn it so much already!  It is exactly what I wanted...a "bang-around" sweater that I can just throw on....
I have been working on a variety of socks....these are the closest to being finished....in that sock 1 is done and working on sock 2...was able to put about an inch on today at the doctor's office...yes, I'm a 49 year old woman, who is probably getting tubes in my ears....yeesh!  I have Eustachian Tube Disability....but it explains the many, many ear infections I've had...have to get a hearing test first..and couldn't book that until the end of January...
I have a baby shower tomorrow...got the hat done....working on the sweater, she'll get that later...
The color is more true in the second picture......They are the Elephant Nation patterns by Gabrielle Danskknit....I have decided I do love colorwork....

So what about you?  What have you been up to the past two weeks? Please share...

Stitch Along Week 46

Good evening...really quick one, as it's bedtime....I've just been plugging along on my Slopes Sweater....
I've got about 20 rows to go...the eyelet yoke is a bit wonky....but I can't wait to wear it.....it's actually the project that is in the basket on top....

Tomorrow is a half day and then 4 days off...yeah! What are you busy working on?

Stitch Along Week 46

Good evening my lovelies!  I am ready to go to bed, so want to make sure I get this up....this week is Parent Teacher conferences, but it is also Spirit Week (yeah, I have no idea who decided that!) Anyway Twin Day was Monday
My student teacher, a fellow third grade teacher and me.....We all love Harry Potter!

Today was Cartoon Character Day...I didn't dress up....although I had some tee shirts, I went with some wooly goodness....
Zuzu's Petals in Freia Handpaints, Zauberball socks in my new, so AWESOME Taos boots....and my upcycled skirt from BHUpcycle....I bought my first skirt from her last year at FFNE...I now own four! (She lives in my town!)

Yes, I'm standing next to the tree that was knocked down by the windstorm on Friday...yep right on top of my husband's truck...
yeah.....almost three years to the date, when the tree fell on the garage squashing my car inside...We have NO trees on our property...they are all neighbor's trees, but an "act of nature" so they are not liable....(two trees....two different neighbors)

So the chainsaw was out, to cut up the tree. The Hubs put it on a shelf, so it was out of the way....and I went to look for something in the tub under the shelf and stood up...and yet, cut my head on the chainsaw...
I had a headache for awhile.....

But in crafting news.........I have sleeves!
They are attached to the body, but I haven't really started on the yoke yet....this weekend....

Tomorrow is Pajama Day (but no parent conferences) I have Owls.......

I hope your week was better than mine...please let me know what you have been doing....

Stitch Along Week 45

Good Wednesday afternoon...I was home ALL DAY yesterday and kept saying...I have to blog.....yeah...I forgot! I remembered on the way to school this morning....

So how are you? What have you been working on?  I've started a new pair of fingerless mitts, but not sure I worked on anything else....
I have been carrying around more projects than actually working on them....So, please link up, if you have something to share....

Stitch Along Week 44

Okay...what a crappy Halloween.....NYC....I just have no words......I also had my infusion today...well, I was suppose to...two blown veins and going back on Friday...the past two times I've had trouble with it......I don't do well with needles and having to have it done multiple times is very stressful.....I've been home since about 4:30 and I'm just waiting to go to bed...

I did not get my Stash Acquisition Post up on Saturday...I was absolutely buggered.....this weekend is the final festival..Fiber Festival of New England in Springfield, MA.  I think this is the sixth year.  I'm staying the weekend with a friend and helping her break down her booth on SUnday...I'll post pics on Instagram.....

So what have I worked on?   a little bit of this, a little bit of that.....let's see what I have pictures of...
Sweater has a second sleeve started...it's father along than this picture....
Finished sock one and started sock two....

That's about it....how about you?   What have you worked on?  It'll be a day or two before I can knit again, because of the blown veins....
