I dont have much to show. Hopefully that will change in the coming months.
I saw this design on Instagram . The designer hasn’t posted a link to the pattern but since I am not selling what I made I hope she doesn’t mind I made one for myself. Its c2c (corner 2 corner) .
I bought this Dragon Purse pattern a month ago. I thought it was cool although I am not much of a dragon fan . It uses a stitch I dont use much but love . The Crocodile stitch.
I ran out of yarn BUT I am not frogging this one. When I go to walmart at the end of the week I will get more Mainstays basic yarn. I do want to start another one so I will use a whole skein for number 2.
And since its spring I am growing stuff! I started this lettuce (romaine) last week and look at the cute little sprouts! I need to put them in soil soon.
Jon mentioned getting me a mini greenhouse so I can grow more veggies. I’m on the fence about that. I’m a bit nervous that everything will die or an animal gets inside and destroys everything. We’ll see. Do you grow your own veggies? Tell me all bout it 🙂
I dont have a list for A Year of Projects. What I do have is a bundle I made on ravelry with projects I’d like to make.. someday. Also I’ve planned out 4 big quarterly projects. This quarter, July 1st to Sept 30 is the Princess Mononoke Pullover. Yes I started it in May but it is less than half done and it needs to get done.
This is the best photo I could post since I am in a middle of a row. This was a few months ago. I think I am close to half way done with the graph . When I take better pics I will talk about adjustments I want to make .
There is this group on ravelry that will be making the Sophie’s Universe blanket in October which is great since that is when I plan start my second big quarterly project… fate 🙂 And October is when I will have extra money from the Halloween orders from my etsy shop 🙂 🙂 Yup, I may have to buy more yarn for this project.
For my current WIPS , I am still working on the Man hat. I love how this yarn is knitting up. My YOP friend, Becki told me Saturate by Premier Yarns is discontinued. Which broke my heart 😦 I have one more skein of the color below ( agate) and 2 others (Zinna and Fluorite). So I will be extra picky when it comes to projects for those.
And for another group (GEMS) I am making a crocodile scarf…. The CAL of the month is the Dragon/Crocodile/Alligator stitch. Where was this CAL when I made the Mermaid Cowl..lol This is the tail.
I could also finish the crocodile fingerless gloves I started back in January. We’ll see 🙂
The first WIP of 2017…. I’ve been wanting to make these fingerless mitts for a while but I haven’t had the yarn to make them. A yarnie friend of mine gave me a bag of Red Heart Unforgettable and Knits Picks Chroma.
The yarn I used for these mitts are Knits Picks Chroma : Dear Diary. I love them! I plan to re make the first one because I like the second with the pink crocodile stitch .
