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 ?  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.  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.

A Year of Projects

YOP7 week 34

I just have a few updates for this week then back to my F.R.I.E.N.D.S blanket. I finished the One with the Peephole Frame last night. Ends need to be woven in. oh joy.

the one with the peephole frame.. finished

I am so happy that is done 🙂

Ive had the following 2 items done for a few weeks now. Both in 0-3 month size.  I cant get over how cute they are. I wish I knew a baby small enough to wear these 😦

And my WIP for the week is a cowl using Red Heart Stripes, Fruity stripe. I love Red Hearts new yarn. I think I have 3 more skeins of stripes . Projects TBD.

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 Scarf  . Which I turned in to an infinity scarf. I used Red Hearts Stripes in Flamenco Stripe colorway. I regret only buying one. I LOVE this colorway! (btw, Jill got some hair 🙂 )

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.

( he sucks anyway..lol ) We stayed at the Howard Johnson(again) . Since our last stay they updated the rooms. they are so pretty. I loved their aqua wall color ❤

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.
