Messy bun beanies are just so fun to make. And even if they dont sell in my shop, at least I’ll will wear them. Using up some of the many , many skeins of Stitch Studio by Nicole. ❀

this one is my fave.

 

I made this Sample Stitch Cowl with 2 skeins of the Lunar tides by Stitch Studio by Nicole. I am obsessed with this yarn!!

And for something new.. Boot cuffs! I need to get me some mid calf boots. I have so many boot cuff patterns saved on ravelry. I may make this a Sock monkey set.. hats, mitts and the cuffs. They have front post stitches so I love them ..lol I love the Front and back post stitches look. I accidentally made these too long, by one row. Still cute!

A Year of Projects

YOP7 week 19

Its been so long since I’ve posted. Halloween is over , thank goodness. It was a crazy October.

A few ups and downs. The sweater I was knitting came out like crap, but my customer still wanted it. It was wearable, I just didnt like how it came out.

I missed crocheting and knitting for fun. Once I was done with orders I went to my new yarn basket … all the yarn I bought from A.C. Moore, And I made a Jazzy Striping ScarfΒ Β . Which I turned in to an infinity scarf. I used Red Hearts Stripes inΒ Flamenco Stripe colorway. I regret only buying one. I LOVE this colorway! (btw, Jill got some hair πŸ™‚ )

This cowl I made in September and forgot to post it in a YOP post. Pattern is called Round Shell Stitch cowl.  Yarn used : Red Heart Medley in Eclectic. Which has been discontinued 😦

In the beginning of October before the Halloween rush, I was able to start the Sophie’s Universe blanket. I did parts 1 and 2 now I am on part 3. round 20. I will be writing up its own post for each part with colors I am using.

This basket cover I made last night. It started as a hat but I wanted to use the entire skein so I made a basket cover. The yarn I used was Stitch Studio by Nicole. Lunar Tides in the Multi/cool colorway.

Yes I have a problem..lol I love Stitch Studio by Nicole!! her yarns were $2 each ( SALE!!) and the smaller ones were $1 each. 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™‚

A Year of Projects

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™‚
