A Year of Projects

YOP7 week 34

I just have a few updates for this week then back to my F.R.I.E.N.D.S blanket. I finished the One with the Peephole Frame last night. Ends need to be woven in. oh joy.

the one with the peephole frame.. finished

I am so happy that is done 🙂

Ive had the following 2 items done for a few weeks now. Both in 0-3 month size.  I cant get over how cute they are. I wish I knew a baby small enough to wear these 😦

And my WIP for the week is a cowl using Red Heart Stripes, Fruity stripe. I love Red Hearts new yarn. I think I have 3 more skeins of stripes . Projects TBD.

I decided to put down the banner block to work on a few smaller blocks for this CAL. The banner is so big and I am not liking how its coming out. I may or may not re do it.

So on to the peephole!

Block name: The One with the Peephole Frame

Movie I watched: 3000 to Graceland ( Courtney Cox)

2 of my loves.. Kevin Costner and Christian Slater ❤

I am only at the half way point of this block. Its sorta a pain in the butt with all the color changes. But I like how its coming out. I am using up alot of the small lemon colored yarn scraps I have from taking apart the 2016 temperature blanket I attempted.

the one with the peephole

I will most likely finish this by tomorrow. So the next block will be either The One with Smelly Cat or I’ll just suck it up and finish The One with the Banner.

Next update will be next Thursday 🙂

F.R.I.E.N.D.S blanket: the plan

Yup, I have not finished it. Ive barely started it.

According to my project page on ravelry for The One with the Banner , the last update was May 27th 2017.

The one with the banner in all its awesomeness… with cat hair and a few spots to fix.

The Plan: Since Ive already watched all 10 seasons of the show recently and do not want to watch again so soon, my idea is to watch other tv shows and movies that the cast has been in while making the blanket.

I got the idea while I was watching the O.C. on hulu. I have Tate Donovan, Joshua on FRIENDS to thank for this possible nightmare..lol

Ive already seen just about everything that the main cast has been in but I am willing (lol ) to re-re-re-re watch their movies again.

My search sites are Netflix and Hulu. Maybe I will find new movies.

For Jennifer Aniston I found Cake. Movie on Nexflix that I havent seen . on Hulu I found and episode of Saturday Night live and episode of 30rock.

Courtney Cox I found Mothers and Daughters (havent seen) and 3000 miles to Graceland on Netflix. And of course I do need to catch up on Cougar Town which is on Hulu.

Lisa Kudrow is in one of my all time favorite movies Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion. That will definitely be watched since I own the DVD.

Matt Leblanc’s show Episodes is on Netflix so I may check that out and Man with a Plan is on CBS… another maybe.

Matthew Perry is my fave so Almost Heros, Fools Rush In and The Odd Couple will be re watched.

David Schwimmer is a tough one to find a movie for on hulu or Netflix. All I could find was The People vs O.J. Simpson  and The Iceman on netflix. The Iceman will likely be watched over the O.J movie.

Another place I can find movies for this cast….the library!!! DUH!! But that will be a last resort.

The first update will be on Thursday 🙂

My first project is a pair of camo baby pants. I need new stuff in my shop and I thoughtyarn heart these would be cute.  Pattern is by Cass Dodge. (<<<pattern link. ) The pattern is easy and well written.

I already have one project done using skein #2. Hyacinth. Also by Red Heart but this is their accent line which is discontinued. 😦  I will post about that on Friday. Hopefully I have these pants and my second project with the hyacinth finished.
