A Year of Projects

YOP8 week 33

Well hello there … its been a while. How have you been?
I’ve been good. Not much going on here. Halloween was good. Thanksgiving was good and Christmas was good as well. I just received my Christmas present from my man. Every 2 years he upgrades my gadgets. 4 years ago he bought me  a kindle, 2 years ago a tablet. and yesterday…. with some of his tax refund, a chrome book. 🙂 I am over the moon with joy !! I love this thing. I don’t have to wait to use the computer. My tablet keyboard was getting a little bit lazy and if you have ever typed anything out on a screen you know how annoying it can be.

Now here is where I show you all thing things I’ve made in the past few months…….

LOL There isn’t much to show. I’ve been reading. I have been abusing my library card like crazy. Since late October, once the Halloween orders were finished , I’ve been working on a Once Upon a Time c2c blanket by 3amgrace designs.

Other projects that are still in the early stages and not worth uploading a picture over are a baby Cactus cardigan and a baby tank top. They are gonna be so cute! I think this year I will devote my yarn stash to making baby items. Eventually one of my younger cousins will have a baby.. or two. 🙂 And my etsy shop needs an update!

 

More later.

This one came out so cute. But unlike the others I did not watch a Friends related movie to keep me motivated. 😦

Next up is either Central Perk or Phoebe’s Guitar . I am doing something different with Phoebe’s guitar though. I remember an episode where she had a blue one. I found a clip of it where Ross scares her at Central Perk .

Next update will be next Thursday.

Need to get caught up?.. check out the following posts. 🙂

The One with Smelly Cat

I started this one on Monday and finished on Tuesday. I zipped right through it. I even sewed the ends in as I went. 🙂

When ever Phoebe sang smelly cat on the show I sang along ..lol 🙂 I even had nightmares about it.. 🙂     The episode where she teaches Chrissie Hynde the song is amazing.

On to my square…

Movie watched : Almost Heroes ( Matthew Perry) I actually watched this when I was finishing the square.

Colors I used .. Mostly Red Heart. Putty, Heather Grey, Brown, Gold ( found a small ball in a box) and Light Grey (Lion brand Vanna’s Choice) .

The one with smelly cat..finished

And here is the Peephole Frame .. so glad this is done. The ends were a b*tch to weave in. way to many.

the one with the peephole frame.. finished
This picture is before I weaved the ends in.

I am not sure what the next square will be.  I have a few graphs printed out.

Next update post will be next Thursday 🙂

I decided to put down the banner block to work on a few smaller blocks for this CAL. The banner is so big and I am not liking how its coming out. I may or may not re do it.

So on to the peephole!

Block name: The One with the Peephole Frame

Movie I watched: 3000 to Graceland ( Courtney Cox)

2 of my loves.. Kevin Costner and Christian Slater ❤

I am only at the half way point of this block. Its sorta a pain in the butt with all the color changes. But I like how its coming out. I am using up alot of the small lemon colored yarn scraps I have from taking apart the 2016 temperature blanket I attempted.

the one with the peephole

I will most likely finish this by tomorrow. So the next block will be either The One with Smelly Cat or I’ll just suck it up and finish The One with the Banner.

Next update will be next Thursday 🙂

YOP7 week 4

I was going to do the A year of Projects posts every other week so I wasn’t in a rush to get something started or finished to show….. But I have to show off this amazing FO !!!!

Its called Mermaid’s Cowl. I really love this stitch. I used a g size hook instead of the H the pattern called for. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft: Pink Camo. I used all but a little ball of this yarn. Its also not as wide as the pattern. It covers the neck( my mannequin head has a longer neck than I do..lol) .

And for my WIP… Another crochet along by Chaos and Chop Suey.  This one is for Grease. One of my all time favorite movies.  Week one is Pink Ladies. I am at the decrease 🙂 I will finish the other half over the next few days so I do not fall behind 🙂
