A Year of Projects

YOP6 week 46

So if you have been keeping up with my posts , you know I can get impatient at the end of A year of Projects…. I am working on my list.. ( I failed so bad with year 6- I lose interest easily I guess). And Β my year 7 banner is made. It wont be as “loud” as this years has been ( super hero themed).

For this weeks projects.. I made another rag doll. This is Uma the Unicorn πŸ™‚ Β I love her so much. I took apart baby groot because I don’t like it very much. He’s too big and I don’t like the color I used. I will make another one though.

I made the eyes, beak, eye patch ,etc for the Owl Pirate hat. When I’m done making the 3rd MagicKarp hat and Eevee hats for customers I will sew all pieces to the owl hat and the reindeer hat.

If you follow me on Instagram( or read my last post here) Β you would of seen that I started the FRIENDS Themed Blanket CAL. This sucker is gonna be huge. I am kinda over the Gilmore Girls blanket for the moment. The Luke’s diner block is almost complete but I want to focus on the FRIENDS blanket since the show is one of my all time faves.

Crochet A Longs, Crochet stuff, FRIENDS CAL

FRIENDS themed blanket CAL part 1

This CAL is fromΒ chaos and chop suey here on wordpress. Ive never been so happy to make anything in my life!! πŸ™‚ I loved the show and I am rewatching it on Netflix while making this blanket. I will be done with show way before I am done with the blanket 😦

The pattern on ravelry is $7 . and soooooo worth it Angela put A LOT of work into these blocks and appliques. Harper Baby ShopΒ Β made themed hooks for this CAL and I HAD to get one! My hook is a 4.25 and the hook Angela used is a 4.50 but I rarely use that size hook so I wanted a hook that I will use alot. Β This hook is so cool.

A Year of Projects, WIPS

YOP6 week 45

Hi… no one panic , I’m back. I didn’t fall of the face of the earth. Β I’ve just been in a knitting/crocheting slump. So many projects so little time.

Okay, A year of projects. only 2 months left. I dont have much to show for year 6 .. its sad. I was going through my ravelry notebook and noticed all the hibernating projects. A few are pretty close to being done. So instead of starting new projects for the remaining 2 months, Β I want to finish the ones I put away.

Here are a few pictures to refresh your memory:

I’ve also been watching a lot of knitting podcasts. Skein Game Podcast, Wool, Needles, Hands and YarnGasmΒ ( all on YOUTUBE). I’ve noticed that basically all knitting podcasts are the same. “look what I made, look what someone gave me, giveaway!” Its their personality that keeps people coming back.

Last minute update…We saw Guardians of the Galaxy yesterday so I made a baby Groot ragdoll the night before… He’s so cute but I want to make one in a lighter brown. And use half double crochets instead of double crochets.

Happy Birthday to me! 29 feels great ..( with 8 years experience) lol. Β If it wasn’t for my “wisdom highlights” I could totally pass for early 30s Β πŸ™‚

Ok now to the reason you are here.. Stuff made with yarn πŸ™‚

I amaze myself sometimes. This Magickarp hat is actually pretty cute. I am not a pokemon person but Jon is and he loves it. too bad its already spoken for. ( and he doesn’t wear hats so he cant keep it)

YOP6 Week 40

Theres been a few projects that have been on my hooks and needles this past week. No FOs though. April is my birth month (the 9th is my birthday) so most of the projects I make this month will be for me πŸ™‚ I noticed the dragonfly pattern trend on ravelry . So I decided to make the Radiating Dragonfly throw by Pattern Paradise . I want to add one more section but I am unsure of what color. So far I have light raspberry, paradise, amethyst, delft blue and bright orchid. I need 241 yards to for section F . that’s less than a skein of yarn of red heart super saver. I was thinking about using cranberry which is a red heart accent and I would have to use a little more than a skein of it since it is a smaller skein. I suck with color.

But before I make a decision I have to finish a Magickarp hat for a friend. Her daughter is a pokemon go player and collects these hats . I am almost done I just need to do some sewing.
