A Year of Projects

YOP6 Week 52

Goodbye year 6….

Before year 6 of A Year of Projects is gone for good, ( so depressing) I needed to get a few things finished.

The holiday flag that has been laying around since year 6 started is now done. I’ve been looking at it in my WIPS basket and couldn’t bring myself to finish it the way it was , so I ripped off the tree and voila’ … all done.. and perfect πŸ™‚

I’m at a crossroad with the Gilmore Girls blanket. I had to finish Luke’s Diner. It would bug me if Β I didn’t . I am not sure if I will make the other blocks though. I am pretty dedicated to the FRIENDS blanket. Β We’ll see.

Another c2c panel that needed to be finished is Aurora. Lack of gold yarn stopped me from finishing this….when I got more it went to the Luke’s Diner panel then the Β MagicKarp hats. She is now finished… On to Ariel πŸ™‚

Does anyone remember the Emoji Blanket I was working on? I have 6 emojis done… and I was deciding on what the other 3 will be…. I made the Poo emoji this past week.

A Year of Projects

YOP6 week 49

My knitting is getting in the way of finishing my crochet WIPS..lol Ive been so obsessed with making my pullover that all the projects I wanted to finish by the end of June are still in my WIP basket.

I was able to finish my Owl wall hanging by Divine Debris. Its part of a Halloween Quartet but I just wanted to make the owl. I love how it came out. I hung it with a stick instead of a dowel.

A Year of Projects, WIPS

YOP6 week 48

Hello and welcome to another A year of Projects progress post…….

Its another week with no finished projects. Ive been splitting my time with this FRIENDS blanket and the Princess Mononoke Pullover.

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 πŸ™‚

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. Β ( left to right : Breakfast, Lunch , Dinner of day 1)

Crochet A Longs, Crochet stuff, FRIENDS CAL

FRIENDS themed blanket CAL part 1

This CAL is fromΒ chaos and chop suey here on wordpress. Ive never been so happy to make anything in my life!! πŸ™‚ I loved the show and I am rewatching it on Netflix while making this blanket. I will be done with show way before I am done with the blanket 😦

The pattern on ravelry is $7 . and soooooo worth it Angela put A LOT of work into these blocks and appliques. Harper Baby ShopΒ Β made themed hooks for this CAL and I HAD to get one! My hook is a 4.25 and the hook Angela used is a 4.50 but I rarely use that size hook so I wanted a hook that I will use alot. Β This hook is so cool.

My first block is The One with the Banner….

I just started the decrease. This is going to be the longest c2c piece Ive done πŸ™‚ My next one will either be Phoebe’s guitar or the peephole .

IMG_3993

I also made some appliques of my own..  The E is for Emma, banana is for Marcel, goldfish is for Eddie and the mustache is for Richard. ❀

A Year of Projects, WIPS

YOP6 week 45

Hi… no one panic , I’m back. I didn’t fall of the face of the earth. Β 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, Β 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 YarnGasmΒ ( 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.
