A Year of Projects

YOP 7 week 10- I am such an idiot !

I have a favor to ask… forget I ever mentioned the Princess Mononoke Pullover. I messed up so bad. I was suppose to add stitches for a few rows before the chart portion. Being almost done with the chart , there is no way I am ripping back rows.

Moving on….. I started a new hobby. Cross Stitching. I must say it is a BLAST. I bought some cheapy packs to practice with… Here is one that took me about a week to make.

I made 2 new hats for my etsy shop. 2 styles of Pumpkin hats and Princess Leia 🙂21148066_1429938087060247_6347782795279990784_n21227011_1726759724286960_6067564057848709120_n

I posted about the Log Cabin blanket on Friday. I thought it would be a good stash buster for all the balls of yarn I have instead of making a bunch of little projects. Now I am just making a bunch of little squares..lol

I am also working on a Swirled Ski Cap ( knit) and a Braided hairpin lace infinity scarf. I will add pictures later. I am almost done with the second hairpin lace panel . I think I need to make 4 .

BTW.. Happy September!

YOP7 week 7

There isnt much to mention this week.. its been pretty dull.

My WIP for the month, like I mentioned last week, is the Princess Mononoke Pullover. I was able to take a better picture. I need to get needles with a longer cord. These are 16 inches.

The mask is almost complete. About 20 more rows..lol 🙂

My FO’s were actually finished a few weeks ago….

I made an infinity scarf on my purple KK loom. Ive loved this yarn for so long. its by Fancy Yarns. I have no idea what the colorway is.

Below is the cowl I posted about last month for a WIP Wednesday.

And lastly, I frogged the Man hat. ugh!!! I got to the decrease and the hat was at a point where I could try it on. Too tight. It broke my heart to take it apart. Do I have any ambition to start over…. does not look good.  Although I love the yarn and the pattern, doing the knit rows hurt my thumb. Must be the thick yarn.

I will not start another block until I finish this banner! I am sorta regretting starting with a banner. lol I’ve actually used up all my black and white balls of yarn. So YAY 🙂

This Princess Mononoke Pullover is definitely a challenge. I am hoping to finish the intarsia portion of the pullover this week. I am so nervous I will miss a square and screw up the whole thing.

I am not a fan of knitted color change. There isn’t a simple way to carry the yarn so there are no holes or pulled yarn.

In other news : Jon and I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It was so good!!!! If you go and see it.. there is a post credit scene you shouldn’t miss if you are a real fan of the movies.

Also I started the Military diet but stopped the day after due to my cold. I will be starting it again in a few days.  ( left to right : Breakfast, Lunch , Dinner of day 1)

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  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.

YOP6 week 45

Hi… no one panic , I’m back. I didn’t fall of the face of the earth.  I’ve just been in a knitting/crocheting slump. So many projects so little time.

Okay, A year of projects. only 2 months left. I dont have much to show for year 6 .. its sad. I was going through my ravelry notebook and noticed all the hibernating projects. A few are pretty close to being done. So instead of starting new projects for the remaining 2 months,  I want to finish the ones I put away.

Here are a few pictures to refresh your memory:

I’ve also been watching a lot of knitting podcasts. Skein Game Podcast, Wool, Needles, Hands and YarnGasm ( all on YOUTUBE). I’ve noticed that basically all knitting podcasts are the same. “look what I made, look what someone gave me, giveaway!” Its their personality that keeps people coming back.

Last minute update…We saw Guardians of the Galaxy yesterday so I made a baby Groot ragdoll the night before… He’s so cute but I want to make one in a lighter brown. And use half double crochets instead of double crochets.
