Other than them I’ve made other hats, scarves and a cute little elephant…

This square is a monthly crochet along by Divine Debris. I love all of Amber’s patterns.

18 in 2018, WIPS

18 in 2018– Skein 1

My plan for 2018 (if you missed my last post) is to use 18 full skeins ( pretty close to full) of yarn from my stash. I am continuing the theme from my A year of Projects I started last year, which is to slim down my yarn stash( yarn balls mostly).

I don’t have a shortage of projects. I have a dozen knitting and crocheting mags, 214 bought patterns and over a thousand free projects saved on ravelry.

For my first skein I chose Red Heart Accent Guava. (discontinued) .

My project is Milkshake Kawaii Cuddler by 3amgracedesigns .

The first half of the cuddler used a good chunk. I hope I use up all of this yarn . I dont need a another ball of yarn.

For some reason I feel really rushed to finish these projects. Maybe its because I just want to make room for other stuff. I have about 5 skeins marked for this … venture. 18 is a big number. People can vote at 18..lol

This is gonna be a fun year πŸ™‚

Messy bun beanies are just so fun to make. And even if they dont sell in my shop, at least I’ll will wear them. Using up some of the many , many skeins of Stitch Studio by Nicole. ❀

this one is my fave.

 

I made this Sample Stitch Cowl with 2 skeins of the Lunar tides by Stitch Studio by Nicole. I am obsessed with this yarn!!

And for something new.. Boot cuffs! I need to get me some mid calf boots. I have so many boot cuff patterns saved on ravelry. I may make this a Sock monkey set.. hats, mitts and the cuffs. They have front post stitches so I love them ..lol I love the Front and back post stitches look. I accidentally made these too long, by one row. Still cute!

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 ScarfΒ Β . Which I turned in to an infinity scarf. I used Red Hearts Stripes inΒ Flamenco Stripe colorway. I regret only buying one. I LOVE this colorway! (btw, Jill got some hair πŸ™‚ )

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.
