A Year of Projects, WIPS

YOP7 wk 6

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 .18646026_1335903496495458_9118225529437159424_n

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 pattern is Man hat on ravelry. And the yarn is Saturate in agate by the Deborah Norville Collection.

I havent knitted a hat in a while and this pattern is perfect.

My other wip is a cowl because I haven’t  made enough in the past few weeks..lol

This yarn is sadly discontinued. I would of loved to buy other colorways. This one is mango and it’s by Red Heart. Pattern is Fandango Cowl, also on ravelry.

A Year of Projects, Crochet A Longs

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 🙂

I’m at a crossroad with the Gilmore Girls blanket. I had to finish Luke’s Diner. It would bug me if  I didn’t . I am not sure if I will make the other blocks though. I am pretty dedicated to the FRIENDS blanket.  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  MagicKarp hats. She is now finished… On to Ariel 🙂

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.
