So much of life is a WIP (work in progress), isn't it? Unfortunately this nasty cold/flu isn't progressing out of my body at least to the point of being able to go back to work but when my energy is high, I've been able to sit absolutely still on the couch and knit. (When I talk to coworkers re: certain projects on the phone, they are very quick to reassure me that they don't want what I have.) I bring to you the gallery of WIPs that have made it to becoming FOs (finished objects).

Wave Jumper out of sock yarn (one full skein and a leftover skein) for Baby H. who's coming in July. I can't believe I'm ahead of the game right now.

Make Believe Crowns for the nieces and nephews that I hope I can see next week if I'm better by then... from oldest to youngest (except for the baby... he doesn't need one).

One single sock (being modeled by my hand) that only needed 30 minutes of attention. Leftover yarn being put to use... it will be paired with another leftover sock-they'll be good partners for one another.And yes, my life is still a WIP-Bargainista's Flutter Sleeve Cardigan is progressing nicely but definitely won't be done before I'm better. The other good news about being very sick is that I've lost my appetite and my abs are getting phenomenal workouts with all the coughing fits:-)

i am so sorry that you are sick BUT i love the projects that you have been able to complete.
i was ooohhing and ahhhing as i scrolled down at each one. The kids projects are adorable, and THEN there was the Flutter Sleeve Cardigan for Bargainista! i'm excited! The color looks great and i know it will look fabulous on me.
i honestly do want you to get better before you complete it!

I'm glad you have enough energy to knit. Love all your knitting projects and I know the kids will love the crowns!! They'll especially love them knowing that they're from Auntie Knittinchick. Hmm...maybe that's what they should start calling you!

I like it when I'm sick enough to stay home, but not so sick as to feel guilty.

Gorgeous WIPs! I hope you'll be at house on Tuesday! xoxo
