Wipocalypse for February

It's a darn good thing this is leap year.  I barely made my post this month.  Eek.  So just a quick update.  Until just the last week I have had some health issues that made sitting up and stitching uncomfortable.  So a little stitching and more knitting was accomplished.  I was also stitching on a couple of commissioned pieces of WiseWoman which are not on the Wipocalypse. 

But, I did some work done on Snapperbets:

For knitting projects, I finished a Cambria Shawl:

And, I'm almost done with a Hillflowers, just 9.5 repeats and a join and this one will be done:

Onward into March!!!

The Lists

I only have two resolutions for 2012.  One is to floss (very successful so far on this one) and the other was to cut back on unnecessary lists.  I'm doing well on that one too.  But some lists just need to be made.  As you know from previous posts, I have cherry picked my WIPs for the 2012 Wipocalyspe.  These are the projects I most want to finish this year. But in the name of complete disclosure and also so I don't forget, I have decided to list all WIPs, kitted projects and partially kitted projects, stitching, knitting and quilting.

3.  Acorn Hill - Little House Needleworks
4.  Work of Christmas - My Big Toe

I think I have a HAED issue but it's all in good fun, yes?  I know other projects will crop up during the year.  So I'll just face those as they come lol....
