YOP week 27: Remember me?

Week 27. holy heck! I wish I had 27 weeks of progress pictures but the Mario Blanket and orders took up most of my time.

These hats are part of the 52 Hat Challenge on Ravelry and A year of Projects. Since I have more time now I can get back to my list(s).

cm and y collage

I have many more hats on my list to make for my etsy shop. It needs more hats. Hats are the most popular item in my shop so that is all I make. everything else just sits there.

Along with adding more hats I am redesigning a few of the hats I already sell. Mainly the Anna and Elsa hats, Police Box, and Giraffe hats. I will be adding other animals, sets ( hat and booties combo for babies) , plain ol hats and all hats will be available in all sizes . I recently made the Lego hat available in all sizes and it is growing in popularity in my shop.

I have more ideas but I will save that for another blog.

for an updated list of my YOP projects , check out my previous post .

Year of Projects List update

Well according to my list I finished one item… the Mario Blanket. My hand written list and the one I have on google drive is totally different. So I updated it. I did spend alot of time making the blanket and with orders .. my etsy shop was sorta busy. ( and now its quiet 😦 )

What did I change?… A few of the Hook Challenge projects didn’t seem appealing to me any more.

I will be starting my wedding dress soon.

Finished Friday! Sugar Skulls!

Another project done! I started this one in September….


sugar skulls 1

They worked up pretty fast. I tried to use as many little yarn balls that I had laying around that I could.

sugar skulls 2

I made the rest of the flowers, the background for the flowers and the connector rings in one night   (new years eve ). They only took a few hours once I figured out what yarn I wanted to use.

Now to find a place for them until I can decorate for Halloween.
