WIP Wednesday

Today is a day of favorites which happen to all be on a Wednesday 🙂

On the needles: 

I have learned how to do cables!! I am so proud of myself. They are so easy! I’ve started 2 headbands , so far.  Ive been looking at my yarn , thinking how it would look with cables 🙂

Yarn used:

the first one is Studio Samples by Nicole. no colorway on label.

the gray one is Lion Brand Yarn ( who have been liking  few of my posts on instagram this past week 🙂 ) I think this color has been discontinued so I hope this headband will look awesome.

On the hooks:

Halloween orders have started 🙂 YAY! Again, lots of Edith hats.

And for something new to my shop… something with ringlets! this is a stash slim down project since I am using the Pretty n Pink balls for the ringlets.

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 🙂

WIP Wednesday 

I am sitting here with my favorite wip this week. I am so in love with this hat. The yarn, the pattern… ❤❤❤

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.
