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 🙂
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.
On the hairpin lace loom:
MY FIRST PROJECT! Its a braided hairpin lace infinity scarf by B.hooked crochet . I have 1 panel complete and this panel is almost done 🙂 2 more to make. Then the fun braiding.
Yarn used: Red Heart Boutique . color : Stained glass.
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 🙂
Princess Mononoke Pullover
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.
hmmm where to start… WIPS, FO’s or frogged stuff.
FO’s are fun…..
Yup thats it for finished objects. 🙂 Its so cute! I really adore it. (Pattern link at bottom of post)
The Flower Power Valance is coming along nicely 🙂 I only have 5 so far.
I started a scarf ( FiFi scarf). I really wanted to use this massive ball of Red Heart in Artist Print. I believe its a full skein. I really love this color way ❤ ❤
If you saw my Frogged It! post earlier in the week , you know whats next.
I had to frog the 2016 Temperature Blanket . I had no use for it. These are all the squares bagged up… Check out the Frogged It! post to see the before pic 🙂
I can’t let all those squares just sit around so Ive made a few things with them…
Top: an almost finished needle/pencil case.
right side : Scarf. I had to add a few purple and white since they were the snow days. But we didn’t have many warm snow days.

Have a happy week 🙂
Shawl Sunday sounds better but I post my a year of projects post on Sundays and these shawls need there own posts…
This is the first shawl I’ve ever made. I was hoping the yarn would knit up better than this. Its called Reef by Red Hear Yarns. When I started this shawl I looked for other people on ravelry who have used this yarn and couldn’t find any. Yesterday I looked again and there are 45 projects. WTF.
A knitting friend on Instagram said ‘if I don’t like it I should frog it’. This yarn and pattern dont go well together at all. I was running out of room on these needles anyway.
This shawl I am loving… but it is curving in the opposite direction. ( why cant anything go right 😦 ) I have no idea how it happened. I know where it started so I placed a stitch marker there and plan on ripping back to those rows. The right side arrow shows the wrong direction.
I know the picture sucks, I just wanted to show the curving.
