A Year of Projects

YOP6 Week 39

I really hate missing a A year of projects post. Β I missed week 36, 37 and 38 because I had an order for 2 knitted pink p*ssy hats with Harry Potter brim, another for a sock monkey hat, and 2 more pink kitty hats.

When I was done with them I was able to finish a second pair of the easy knitted fingerless gloves. I love how they came out. I might make another pair. I used Knit Picks Chroma in Sugar Cookie. I like that with these I can either wear the green side or the pink/purple? white side πŸ™‚

With some help ($$)I will be making soaps again!! So I will be splitting my time between knitting/crocheting and soap making. Β I made these bars a few nights ago. with limited materials and doing tie dye for the first time, I think they came out pretty good.

Also double knitting has made its way into my life. Its so f’in fun!!!! I made a cowl for my cat. She wouldn’t model it for me though.

YOP6 Week 35

YAY we have our new computer. Jon couldn’t be happier. Seriously. πŸ™‚

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 Β balky yarn in orange or green and two , not wanting a thick crocheted cowl, I chose to knit. πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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.

A Year of Projects

YOP6 Week 34

Day 5 with no computer. On Wednesday our computer wouldn’t turn on. Nothing my fiance did worked. So we ordered one from ibuypower. Now we have to wait a week or two for it to be made and shipped. So my tablet and Jon ‘s Playstation will get an extra workout. Poor things. Lol.

I havent Β posted a year of projects post in a while. I’ve Β been busy making those pink kitty hats.

I think 45 is enough. In between making these hats I knitted a few rows of the sunset hat I stared last month. It’s not perfect. The yarn I used was a bit annoying . But I do love how it turned out.

With this free after making all those orders I want to knit more, make some wildlife rescue nests and organize my little craft area.

WIP Wednesday 2/15/17

I love these days. I wish I had more to share but I’ve been a bit busy making Pink P**sy hats. I can honestly say I hate the color pink. I really do πŸ™‚ Staring at the color for weeks made my head hurt.

Todays WIP is a knitted hat that I just love. You can find the pattern HEREΒ . Its called Sunset hat. When I saw this pattern on ravelry I knew I had to make it. I love color work. It gives the hat personality.

I am about to add my 3rd color. Papaya ( Red Heart with Love). My other colors are Delft Blue (Red Heart Super Saver) and Putty ( Red Heart Accent). My 4th color is still undecided. It might be coral or carrot. The colors are basically the same but with a slight difference .

I’ve noticed something about knitting… it doesn’t use up as much yarn as crocheting. Β Which is a good thing but also bad since I am trying to cut my yarn stash in half this year πŸ™‚

Gilmore Girls CAL: My Journey,part 1

Another C2C CAL has caught my attention. I know I haven’t finished the Princess and Villains C2C CAL yet, but this one is sooo much more important!! Its the GILMORE GIRLS!!!!!

I wasn’t a fan of the show when it aired in 2000 but since hearing about the revival I wanted to check it out to see what the hype was about. I finished all 7 seasons in about 2 months thanks to Netflix and watched A Year in the Life in 2 nights. ( and have since re watched winter and spring) . I can see why so many people love that show.

I dont remember how I found the C2C CAL by Chaos & Chop Suey But I am glad I did. Angela designed amazing squares .

After much thinking , my first squares are going to be Luke’s diner sign and theΒ  Love Rocket Β Logan gave Rory. ( my 2 fav guys).
