I have finally gotten around to writing A Year of Projects post for year 9 . I am not sure what I want to do make for year 9. I think mainly tops for myself. I have finished one (see below ) and I have 3 on the hook(s).
This is the Kanata Kerchief Tank. It looks good on the hanger but it makes me look fat! Its the XL . I should of made the medium. I like somewhat baggy t-shirts but this is way to much.
Yarn Used : Red Heart Super Saver Fair Isle, Candy
WORK IN PROGRESS..
Below is the Aestas Top. I LOVE THIS !! I have many more rows to go. I may never take it off when its finished. I am heading to Tampa on Monday and I was hoping to be able to wear this but I don’t think I will have time to finish it in time.
And I am still on my c2c obsession .. Lovable Loops had a Alphabet blanket crochet along back in January. I made an E. The rest of my name will be coming soon in other shades of purple. I used Red Heart yarn, super saver accent and with love metallic.
And as you can see, my current book when I made this was Eleanor & Park. Which I love so much!!
Books of the Week: The Cactus , and Fangirl ( the author of Eleanor & Park ❤ ).
Audio books: Girl Walks in to a Bar.. by Rachel Dratch ( former SNL member) and The Good, The Bad, and the Barbie 🙂
If you have visited my blog before you can see that I redesigned it. Well the background anyway. I am also thinking up a new idea of how to post my blogs. Other than just the blah here is a paragraph of what I did.. pictures… another paragraph…..
I’m going to try to add more about my daily life…
Get into some sewing… I have a sewing machine and some fat quarters so I should put them to use. 🙂
Maybe some other crafts as well… I always wanted to play with alcohol inks.
With the end of A Year of Projects year 8 next week, I need to get my brain in gear and think of something creative. ( it might just stay the same..lol )
Here’s a little slid show of a few of my faves of this past year.
I dont have much to show. Hopefully that will change in the coming months.
I saw this design on Instagram . The designer hasn’t posted a link to the pattern but since I am not selling what I made I hope she doesn’t mind I made one for myself. Its c2c (corner 2 corner) .
I bought this Dragon Purse pattern a month ago. I thought it was cool although I am not much of a dragon fan . It uses a stitch I dont use much but love . The Crocodile stitch.
I ran out of yarn BUT I am not frogging this one. When I go to walmart at the end of the week I will get more Mainstays basic yarn. I do want to start another one so I will use a whole skein for number 2.
And since its spring I am growing stuff! I started this lettuce (romaine) last week and look at the cute little sprouts! I need to put them in soil soon.
Jon mentioned getting me a mini greenhouse so I can grow more veggies. I’m on the fence about that. I’m a bit nervous that everything will die or an animal gets inside and destroys everything. We’ll see. Do you grow your own veggies? Tell me all bout it 🙂
Yup, I have not finished it. Ive barely started it.
According to my project page on ravelry for The One with the Banner , the last update was May 27th 2017.
The Plan: Since Ive already watched all 10 seasons of the show recently and do not want to watch again so soon, my idea is to watch other tv shows and movies that the cast has been in while making the blanket.
I got the idea while I was watching the O.C. on hulu. I have Tate Donovan, Joshua on FRIENDS to thank for this possible nightmare..lol
Ive already seen just about everything that the main cast has been in but I am willing (lol ) to re-re-re-re watch their movies again.
My search sites are Netflix and Hulu. Maybe I will find new movies.
For Jennifer Aniston I found Cake. Movie on Nexflix that I havent seen . on Hulu I found and episode of Saturday Night live and episode of 30rock.
Courtney Cox I found Mothers and Daughters (havent seen) and 3000 miles to Graceland on Netflix. And of course I do need to catch up on Cougar Town which is on Hulu.
Lisa Kudrow is in one of my all time favorite movies Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion. That will definitely be watched since I own the DVD.
Matt Leblanc’s show Episodes is on Netflix so I may check that out and Man with a Plan is on CBS… another maybe.
Matthew Perry is my fave so Almost Heros, Fools Rush In and The Odd Couple will be re watched.
David Schwimmer is a tough one to find a movie for on hulu or Netflix. All I could find was The People vs O.J. Simpson and The Iceman on netflix. The Iceman will likely be watched over the O.J movie.
Another place I can find movies for this cast….the library!!! DUH!! But that will be a last resort.
Skein #3 is Camouflage by Red heart yarns. its a jumbo skein. So I have a lot of crocheting or knitting to do with this big boy.
My first project is a pair of camo baby pants. I need new stuff in my shop and I thought these would be cute. Pattern is by Cass Dodge. (<<<pattern link. ) The pattern is easy and well written.
I already have one project done using skein #2. Hyacinth. Also by Red Heart but this is their accent line which is discontinued. 😦 I will post about that on Friday. Hopefully I have these pants and my second project with the hyacinth finished.
So my second project with skein #2 is Animal crackers beanie by Snappy Tots ( <<< link to pattern) Orchid ( by Red Heart) is also being used as the bottom of the hat and the inside of the ears. I’m making a bunny since it is almost Easter.
