A Year of Projects

YOP6 Week 52

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 πŸ™‚

I’m at a crossroad with the Gilmore Girls blanket. I had to finish Luke’s Diner. It would bug me if Β I didn’t . I am not sure if I will make the other blocks though. I am pretty dedicated to the FRIENDS blanket. Β 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 Β MagicKarp hats. She is now finished… On to Ariel πŸ™‚

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.

A Year of Projects

YOP6 week 50

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 πŸ™‚ Pattern for the hat can be found hereΒ .

Now back to my Mononoke Pullover and FRIENDS cal banner.

A Year of Projects

YOP6 week 49

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.

A Year of Projects

YOP6 week 46

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 Β 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 πŸ™‚ Β 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) Β 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.

YOP6 week 41

its-my-birthday-2a709y

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)
