WIP Wednesday – Edith Sweater

So after a few years of making Edith hats , I caved. I was asked to make an Edith sweater. I have been asked a few times to make one but this year I said yes. I am confidentΒ  with my knitting where making a simple sweater wont scare the hell out of me. The pattern is easy enough. Its a paid pattern by Brigette PiniΒ .

I started October 1st but really got into it ( meaning I put hat orders on hold until I make a good chunk of this sweater) on the 3rd .

As of last night I am almost done with one sleeve. I want to have this shipped out by the 16th.

After pulling 2 mini skeins of yarn apart , I found the correct colorway for my cabled headband and only used about 5 inches of it πŸ™‚ lol

The Red Hearts ( Medley is discontinued according to ravelry 😦  ) were full price $3.49 I think. Ive gone to AC More 3 times this month and finally signed up for a rewards card πŸ™‚

the gray one is Lion Brand Yarn ( who have been likingΒ  few of my posts on instagram this past week πŸ™‚ ) I think this color has been discontinued so I hope this headband will look awesome.

On the hooks:

Halloween orders have started πŸ™‚ YAY! Again, lots of Edith hats.

And for something new to my shop… something with ringlets! this is a stash slim down project since I am using the Pretty n Pink balls for the ringlets.

YOP7 week 11

Here we are at week 11 and the beginning of a very busy Halloween season for me πŸ™‚ I will be adding new hats to my etsy shop THIS WEEK, Princess Leia, and a few styles of Pumpkin hats also a surprise hat that I wont be sharing until I am done. I didnt really want to make this hat because of the hair but its actually pretty fun..lol.

Yesterday while Jon was at the theater watching IT I went to A.C.Moore, The Christmas Tree shop and 5 Below ( its like the Dollar Tree but everything is UNDER $5 ).

The only thing I needed was the light pink yarn. My go to yarn has always been Red Heart, but this Studio Classic by Nicole may be replacing Red Heart for me. Its softer, there is more yardage and its less $$$$ , at A.C Moore. I believe its an exclusive like I Love This Yarn is for Hobby Lobby. I also bought some faux fur, cross stitch kits and Studio Samples by Nicole… I couldn’t pass up yarn for a $1 πŸ™‚

I dont like spiders buts its purple and the spiders aren’t visible with the yarn. I also bought an orange one for our apples .

YOP 7 week 10- I am such an idiot !

I have a favor to ask… forget I ever mentioned the Princess Mononoke Pullover. I messed up so bad. I was suppose to add stitches for a few rows before the chart portion. Being almost done with the chart , there is no way I am ripping back rows.

Moving on….. I started a new hobby. Cross Stitching. I must say it is a BLAST. I bought some cheapy packs to practice with… Here is one that took me about a week to make.

I posted about the Log Cabin blanket on Friday. I thought it would be a good stash buster for all the balls of yarn I have instead of making a bunch of little projects. Now I am just making a bunch of little squares..lol

I am also working on a Swirled Ski Cap ( knit) and a Braided hairpin lace infinity scarf. I will add pictures later. I am almost done with the second hairpin lace panel . I think I need to make 4 .

BTW.. Happy September!
