YOP: Week #47

Crazy week....but all parents came to conferences...whoop!  Next week, we only have 2 1/2 days of school because of Thanksgiving.....it's really, really cold and windy here today....our bedroom window..

So tucked up in the warm house with a cup of tea, I am still trying to craft all the things!

Yesterday I wound yarn....I wound the new skein I had to order to finish my Lucy hat....and then worked on the hat until I completed it...the skein in slightly darker than the other, but since it's at the crown of the head, it kinda looks intentional..we can agree that it was, right? ;)

I also wound the yarn for my Mom's Lucy hat (she doesn't come here often, so I have no fear of her reading this)  When I posted the first hat on Facebook, she requested one and she doesn't request things often....

I also wound the Zen Yarn Garden yarn I won, in anticipation of starting on that soon....

I also wound the Lorna's Laces Who Scarf kit yarn, and started on that, while watching the 50th Anniversary episode yesterday..naturally!!!!!

And the Lorna's Laces Catching Fire yarn....not sure what that will become yet...

On Wednesday I picked up some Lion Brand Thick and Quick to make a Katniss cowl....I decided I'm just going to design it on my own...I really didn't want the big rolls sitting on my shoulders, so it's a bit softer....I am working on the body now...it won't be exactly like hers, but inspired by....

This round of Nerd wars ends Thursday, I was thinking I had a few more days...so I will be busy, busy, busy crafting!!!!!  I need to work on my dissertation, the Creekbed quite a bit, but going to finish the Lucy Hat first, as I am on the band already....

See you next week, with I hope lots more finishes!!!!!

I wound a skein of yarn yesterday, too :) But, mine was for my Zombie Vixen Fingerless Mitts...and it was just one skein.

I'm envious of all of your yarn purchases,especially the Lorna's special colorways. The Catching Fire one is badass! Hope you have fun knitting with them all!
