YoP update

This is just a quick little update to let all my fellow crafters know that there really isn't much of an update to give.

I have worked a bit on my top and a very little bit on my socks.  Nothing else has been touched in the past two weeks. 

Hubby and I have been so busy getting ready for Christmas that there just is not enough hours in the day to really do any justice to my crafting right now.  My craftroom looks like a small explosive devise went off in there.  I barely have enough time after work to go and visit my mom and eat dinner before I am asleep in my nice comfy recliner.  (Mom is doing fantastic)

Hopefully, after by the first of the year I will be back in full swing of my crafting.  It so relaxes me and I really do need that right about now.

There is so much going on in my life, I can't even begin to tell you all about it.  I am totally stressed out right now with family issues and ask that if you are a praying person, you will send up a few prayers for our family.  I know that God doesn't give us more than we can handle, but I wish He didn't trust me so much.

I will not go into the issues on my blog as it is very personal and it might take a while before everything it all straightened out and we have some kind of 'normal' again.  Hubby and I will be fine and we know that.  It is just hard right now.

But since this is suppose to be a crafting blog..............lets get back to that.

I have been invited to test knit a couple of items.  The first time the test was full by the time I got to it.  The second time, I realized I did not have all my Christmas knitting done and had no business starting on something that had a time frame to get done.  So I am going to search again after the first of the year.  I am sure I will find the perfect test knit/crochet for me then.

Here is my list again:

YoP 4 List
New items to do

Sweater for me
Started 11/18/14

WIP's to complete

WORKED ON THIS WEEK

Things to increase my skills

2-3 test knits/crochet
(I have done a few of these over the past year and loved doing them.  They totally test my skills as a crafter and help me branch out into areas I would never ever think of going)
I HAVE BEEN ASKED TO DO A COUPLE BUT UNTIL AFTER THE FIRST OF THE YEAR, I JUST DON'T SEE THAT HAPPENING.   
Personal Goal

Use only the yarn from my stash for all the above projects.
( I am truly going to try NOT to purchase any more yarn this year.  I have already gone 4 months without buying any yarn and I figure I can continue that trend for at least another 12 months.)
NO YARN BOUGHT AS OF 12/15/14

Take photos of ALL items when done.
(I have a habit of gifting items and never photographing them for my blog)
