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.

YOP6 Week 35

YAY we have our new computer. Jon couldn’t be happier. Seriously. 🙂

For Becki, and Stefanie who asked about the Wildlife Nests. The nests I am making are for local wildlife rescues in need. These are the standard cage nests for small animals. Volunteers make just about any size needed for the rescue they want to help. But you have to register and make the patterns that are on the Wildlife Rescue Nests website.

I have to re make a few. I made them an inch too big.

Now for other projects. I have been knitting up a storm. I have finished one project and have two on my needles.

You know you are a knitter when you look at a crochet pattern and say ” That would look better knitted” . And that is what i did for my Irish Flag cowl. The pattern I found was a moss stitch and called for balky yarn. One, not having  balky yarn in orange or green and two , not wanting a thick crocheted cowl, I chose to knit. 🙂

I also started a Patriots hat for my older brother for his birthday in May. It may be too warm for him to wear it but I know he will like it. I am also making a pair of fingerless gloves. I love the look of these and they are so easy to make .

I was back to my Temperature Blanket I started last year on Saturday. The weather was so nice. I sewed August, September and October to the rest of the blanket. Now to make November and December squares and sew them on . Oh and my cat Stormy helped, well she tried 🙂

In other crochet news, I made this dream catcher . Its by Drops Designs. I love it and plan to make a few more in other colors. I need to find a cool looking stick to hang it with instead of using a stuffing dowel.
