Happy Birthday to me! 29 feels great ..( with 8 years experience) lol. Β If it wasn’t for my “wisdom highlights” I could totally pass for early 30s Β πŸ™‚

Ok now to the reason you are here.. Stuff made with yarn πŸ™‚

I amaze myself sometimes. This Magickarp hat is actually pretty cute. I am not a pokemon person but Jon is and he loves it. too bad its already spoken for. ( and he doesn’t wear hats so he cant keep it)

And I finished the dragonflies blanket. I added Guava then cranberry and used the crab stitch with light raspberry as the boarder.

A Year of Projects, WIPS

YOP6 Week 40

Theres been a few projects that have been on my hooks and needles this past week. No FOs though. April is my birth month (the 9th is my birthday) so most of the projects I make this month will be for me πŸ™‚ I noticed the dragonfly pattern trend on ravelry . So I decided to make the Radiating Dragonfly throw by Pattern Paradise . I want to add one more section but I am unsure of what color. So far I have light raspberry, paradise, amethyst, delft blue and bright orchid. I need 241 yards to for section F . that’s less than a skein of yarn of red heart super saver. I was thinking about using cranberry which is a red heart accent and I would have to use a little more than a skein of it since it is a smaller skein. I suck with color.

But before I make a decision I have to finish a Magickarp hat for a friend. Her daughter is a pokemon go player and collects these hats . I am almost done I just need to do some sewing.
