Hi,

virtual_hug

I hope you all had a great week. โค

Again my week had been consumed of reading and very little crocheting. I finished another kawaii cuddler. I might add legs.

As I was taking these pictures it was slightly raining. Its been a bit of a gloomy day.

Up next is Frida’s Flowers blanket.

I am making this blanket again. The colors I was using for the other ( that I turned into a table runner, see that here) , I wasn’t feeling . So take 2 here we go.

Colors so far are Bright Orchid, Aran and Rouge. Half hexagons are done. For part 2 I am using Paradise and Papaya.

The only difference is round 3 and 6. the left I used Papaya and the right I used Lavender.

A Year of Projects

A Year of Projects Year 8

Whoa! ( in Joey Lawrence’s voice โค )

This is the year….

THIS IS THE YEAR I make something with all those patterns I bought!!!!!

How many years have I said that though? The list keeps getting longer. (current count:218.. Ive made 28. ) I HAVE to make something with them. I wish I could return a few. Why did I buy thisย  was muttered alot when I was going through the list on ravelry.

My FO for the week is this adorable Catus Kawaii Cuddler. This is the cutest thing I have ever made!!

Ive been reading so much that crocheting has been on the way back burner.ย  I know I have to make equal amount of time for both my loves.

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

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 ?ย  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.ย  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.

I am so happy that is done ๐Ÿ™‚

Ive had the following 2 items done for a few weeks now. Both in 0-3 month size.ย  I cant get over how cute they are. I wish I knew a baby small enough to wear these ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

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.

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 Scarfย ย . Which I turned in to an infinity scarf. I used Red Hearts Stripes inย Flamenco Stripe colorway. I regret only buying one. I LOVE this colorway! (btw, Jill got some hair ๐Ÿ™‚ )

This cowl I made in September and forgot to post it in a YOP post. Pattern is called Round Shell Stitch cowl.ย ย Yarn used : Red Heart Medley in Eclectic. Which has been discontinued ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

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.
