A Year of Projects

YOP7 week 43

I need to get back to A year of Projects. I think its the cause of my depression 😦

ugh.. if it was only that simple.

Ive been making stuff with yarn. Not a whole lot of completed projects to show…

from left to right… Boyfriend hat, Embossed Hexagon, Spiral flower .

All are half finished. And all are part of my stash slim down. Patterns are easy and well written. The embossing is new to me and I want to make a few more hexes and then make a bag. I am not sure what I will do with the flower. Add it to a hat ?Β  And the boyfriend hat is getting donated.

For my FO’s..

A Milkshake Kawaii Cuddler by 3amgracedesigns . I also made the Television Kawaii Cuddler, i just forgot to take a picture of it.Β  And a shark mug cozy, cabled crown beanie and Animal Crackers bunny hat.

 

Updates on the FRIENDS blanket, Grease blanket and Sophie’s Universe will be this week plus a sneak peak of a project I am restarting.

Messy bun beanies are just so fun to make. And even if they dont sell in my shop, at least I’ll will wear them. Using up some of the many , many skeins of Stitch Studio by Nicole. ❀

this one is my fave.

 

I made this Sample Stitch Cowl with 2 skeins of the Lunar tides by Stitch Studio by Nicole. I am obsessed with this yarn!!

And for something new.. Boot cuffs! I need to get me some mid calf boots. I have so many boot cuff patterns saved on ravelry. I may make this a Sock monkey set.. hats, mitts and the cuffs. They have front post stitches so I love them ..lol I love the Front and back post stitches look. I accidentally made these too long, by one row. Still cute!

A Year of Projects

YOP7 week 19

Its been so long since I’ve posted. Halloween is over , thank goodness. It was a crazy October.

A few ups and downs. The sweater I was knitting came out like crap, but my customer still wanted it. It was wearable, I just didnt like how it came out.

I missed crocheting and knitting for fun. Once I was done with orders I went to my new yarn basket … all the yarn I bought from A.C. Moore, And I made a Jazzy Striping ScarfΒ Β . Which I turned in to an infinity scarf. I used Red Hearts Stripes inΒ Flamenco Stripe colorway. I regret only buying one. I LOVE this colorway! (btw, Jill got some hair πŸ™‚ )

This cowl I made in September and forgot to post it in a YOP post. Pattern is called Round Shell Stitch cowl.  Yarn used : Red Heart Medley in Eclectic. Which has been discontinued 😦

In the beginning of October before the Halloween rush, I was able to start the Sophie’s Universe blanket. I did parts 1 and 2 now I am on part 3. round 20. I will be writing up its own post for each part with colors I am using.

This basket cover I made last night. It started as a hat but I wanted to use the entire skein so I made a basket cover. The yarn I used was Stitch Studio by Nicole. Lunar Tides in the Multi/cool colorway.
