Goodbye year 6….
Before year 6 of A Year of Projects is gone for good, ( so depressing) I needed to get a few things finished.
The holiday flag that has been laying around since year 6 started is now done. I’ve been looking at it in my WIPS basket and couldn’t bring myself to finish it the way it was , so I ripped off the tree and voila’ … all done.. and perfect 🙂
I’m at a crossroad with the Gilmore Girls blanket. I had to finish Luke’s Diner. It would bug me if I didn’t . I am not sure if I will make the other blocks though. I am pretty dedicated to the FRIENDS blanket. We’ll see.
Another c2c panel that needed to be finished is Aurora. Lack of gold yarn stopped me from finishing this….when I got more it went to the Luke’s Diner panel then the MagicKarp hats. She is now finished… On to Ariel 🙂
Does anyone remember the Emoji Blanket I was working on? I have 6 emojis done… and I was deciding on what the other 3 will be…. I made the Poo emoji this past week.
And I finished this moss and front post stitch pony tail hat. ❤
WIPS for the week are this stockinette stitch shawl… it grew a little bit from last week.
And I started another shawl… its called Skewed . its a free pattern on ravelry.
for the last time…. my superhero YOP banner…..
So last Sunday I started my Wonder Woman bag. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make a hat or a bag.( big enough to fit my wallet) . All week I was thinking bag or hat, hat or bag. Wednesday night I chose bag. Its too warm for a hat. Plus I can use this when I see Wonder Woman on Thursday ( BTW I loved that movie. Gale makes a great Wonder Woman ❤ )
Its knitted if anyone was wondering 🙂 Pattern for the hat can be found here .
Now back to my Mononoke Pullover and FRIENDS cal banner.
My knitting is getting in the way of finishing my crochet WIPS..lol Ive been so obsessed with making my pullover that all the projects I wanted to finish by the end of June are still in my WIP basket.
I was able to finish my Owl wall hanging by Divine Debris. Its part of a Halloween Quartet but I just wanted to make the owl. I love how it came out. I hung it with a stick instead of a dowel.
Oi! this banner! moving on to the E now. Its gonna be huge !
And after a few people saying they didnt understand my Loom knit pattern for the dish towel holder , I updated it and added more pictures.
So if you have been keeping up with my posts , you know I can get impatient at the end of A year of Projects…. I am working on my list.. ( I failed so bad with year 6- I lose interest easily I guess). And my year 7 banner is made. It wont be as “loud” as this years has been ( super hero themed).
For this weeks projects.. I made another rag doll. This is Uma the Unicorn 🙂 I love her so much. I took apart baby groot because I don’t like it very much. He’s too big and I don’t like the color I used. I will make another one though.
I made the eyes, beak, eye patch ,etc for the Owl Pirate hat. When I’m done making the 3rd MagicKarp hat and Eevee hats for customers I will sew all pieces to the owl hat and the reindeer hat.
If you follow me on Instagram( or read my last post here) you would of seen that I started the FRIENDS Themed Blanket CAL. This sucker is gonna be huge. I am kinda over the Gilmore Girls blanket for the moment. The Luke’s diner block is almost complete but I want to focus on the FRIENDS blanket since the show is one of my all time faves.
Happy Birthday to me! 29 feels great ..( with 8 years experience) lol. If it wasn’t for my “wisdom highlights” I could totally pass for early 30s 🙂
Ok now to the reason you are here.. Stuff made with yarn 🙂
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)
I also finished the lemon drop hat. I LOVE KNITTING!!!!!
And I finished the dragonflies blanket. I added Guava then cranberry and used the crab stitch with light raspberry as the boarder.
Now I will have time to knit some scarves for the Maine and New Hampshire’s Special Olympics 🙂
Speaking of knitting …..
