WIP Wednesday 

I am sitting here with my favorite wip this week. I am so in love with this hat. The yarn, the pattern… ❤❤❤

The pattern is Man hat on ravelry. And the yarn is Saturate in agate by the Deborah Norville Collection.

I havent knitted a hat in a while and this pattern is perfect.

My other wip is a cowl because I haven’t  made enough in the past few weeks..lol

This yarn is sadly discontinued. I would of loved to buy other colorways. This one is mango and it’s by Red Heart. Pattern is Fandango Cowl, also on ravelry.

Friday Finishes

Wow I have 3 finished objects this week. 2 of them I started and finished in one day.

First to be finished is the Fifi scarf. I love this design and I plan to make another soon. I was hoping to use up most of the yarn but I still have a good size ball of Artist Print left. If I was making a crochet project I wouldn’t have enough. I love knitting! 🙂

The next two cowls are using the same yarns just in different sizes. I used Patons ColorWul in Bloom and Red Heart’s Aran. The pattern is called Big Stitch Cowl by Yarnspirations. I love this yarn! 🙂 🙂

Work In Progress Wednesday!

I love when I have a WIP to show on Wednesday . 🙂 If you have read any of my A Year of Projects post from this  or last month,  you would know I am slashing my stash.  Too mush yarn for a little space.

Any way I have this ball of yarn from Red Heart called Artist Print. Its so beautiful. But I haven’t had any luck with finding the right project for it. A few days ago I decided it was time. Its a big ball.. a full skein I believe.  I looked on ravelry for the colorway to see what it looks up knitted and crocheted .

I found a project called Fifi scarf  .  I loved it and had to make one for myself. Its a knitted project. Perfect. I am a bit obsessed with knitting at the moment.

Its an easy pattern and with this yarn its working up beautifully. I am at the tricky part. I have to create the “loop” that the other side of the scarf will go through. Ive never had to divide my knitting  but it went pretty well. No dropped stitches 🙂 🙂

The picture above shows where I had to divide the stitches. 12 on each needle. I did the k1,p1 ribbing on one half of the stitches last night. Tonight I will cut the yarn and do the ribbing for the other 12 stitches.
