WIP Wednesday – Edith Sweater

So after a few years of making Edith hats , I caved. I was asked to make an Edith sweater. I have been asked a few times to make one but this year I said yes. I am confident  with my knitting where making a simple sweater wont scare the hell out of me. The pattern is easy enough. Its a paid pattern by Brigette Pini .

I started October 1st but really got into it ( meaning I put hat orders on hold until I make a good chunk of this sweater) on the 3rd .

As of last night I am almost done with one sleeve. I want to have this shipped out by the 16th.

WIP Wednesday

Today is a day of favorites which happen to all be on a Wednesday 🙂

On the needles: 

I have learned how to do cables!! I am so proud of myself. They are so easy! I’ve started 2 headbands , so far.  Ive been looking at my yarn , thinking how it would look with cables 🙂

Yarn used:

the first one is Studio Samples by Nicole. no colorway on label.

the gray one is Lion Brand Yarn ( who have been liking  few of my posts on instagram this past week 🙂 ) I think this color has been discontinued so I hope this headband will look awesome.

On the hooks:

Halloween orders have started 🙂 YAY! Again, lots of Edith hats.

And for something new to my shop… something with ringlets! this is a stash slim down project since I am using the Pretty n Pink balls for the ringlets.

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.

It looks like a snake..lol
