A Year of Projects, Knitting Adventures

YOP6 week 30

What do I have for week 30….umm nothing really. I am playing around with my needles and some color work. I just free handed this with out a pattern. I dont like the yellow because its too thin and doesn’t pop out as you can see in the blue yarn.

I am on to my next knitted hat. Its called Sunset hat by Emily Dormier . I even made new stitch markers . This pattern repeats every 4 stitches so the stitch markers will come in handy.

Lastly, I found another C2C Crochet along. This one is for the Gilmore Girls . This block is Luke’s diner. Its 50 x 50. The biggest c2c square I’ve made.  I need more RHSS in jade for the decrease. I will have a separate category for this CAL for the other blocks.:)

WIP Wednesday

The first WIP of 2017…. I’ve been wanting to make these fingerless mitts for a while but I haven’t had the yarn to make them. A yarnie friend of mine gave me a bag of Red Heart Unforgettable and Knits Picks Chroma.

The yarn I used for these mitts are Knits Picks Chroma : Dear Diary. I love them! I plan to re make the first one because I like the second with the pink crocodile stitch .

These Crocodile Fingerless mitts are by R.W.

YOP6 week 27

Hi all… I’m back!! 🙂

Sorry for my 2 week absence… I got ran over by the Messy bun beanie bandwagon. 🙂 I got everyone’s orders out for Christmas who needed them by then. My most popular color is Turqua. I now hate the color..lol kidding. I still love it. it is yarn after all . I have a few other designs I need to add to my etsy.

Favorite Projects of 2016

2016 was the year I finished my Lily Pond Blanket

FINISHED lily

2016 was the year I taught myself to knit and fell inlove with it. More of it will be done in 2017.

2016 is when I jumped on the Messy Bun /Ponytail beanie bandwagon.

2016 was the year I was featured on the Linky Ladies blog at #5.

2016 was the year I went crazy with C2C ( corner to corner ) panels.

2016 was the year I got back into loom knitting.

2016 was not the year when I organized my crochet corner …

2016 was not the year I spent less money on yarn than the year before….

2016 was not the year I published any new patterns….

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR…. HERE’S TO 2017

YOP6 week 24

Almost half way people !!:)

Lets start this week with Jon and my new favorite restaurant: The Jealous Monk in Mystic Village, Mystic CT . I think its a Belgian place. I am so picky I ordered a salad ( Backyard Picnic… iceberg lettuce  with blue cheese dressing with cucumbers, carrots , bacon and radish ) and the Belgian frites (french fries) and Jon had a pulled pork sandwich with the frites. We played Connect Four ( yup they have games there too) until the food came. Them We headed in to the village to see some of the lights .. but it was too cold to fully enjoy waling around. Here are some pics of our visit..

 

This week was a bit productive win the hat department… I finished 5 hats…. 2 knitted and 3 ponytail/messy bun hats. Yes I jumped on the band wagon with the new trend. I am a ponytail wearer so I love these hats.

This one is my favorite. Easy Peasy Messy Bun hat.img_3848
