Knitting Adventures, WIPS

WIP Wednesday 2/15/17

I love these days. I wish I had more to share but I’ve been a bit busy making Pink P**sy hats. I can honestly say I hate the color pink. I really do 🙂 Staring at the color for weeks made my head hurt.

Todays WIP is a knitted hat that I just love. You can find the pattern HERE . Its called Sunset hat. When I saw this pattern on ravelry I knew I had to make it. I love color work. It gives the hat personality.

I am about to add my 3rd color. Papaya ( Red Heart with Love). My other colors are Delft Blue (Red Heart Super Saver) and Putty ( Red Heart Accent). My 4th color is still undecided. It might be coral or carrot. The colors are basically the same but with a slight difference .

I’ve noticed something about knitting… it doesn’t use up as much yarn as crocheting.  Which is a good thing but also bad since I am trying to cut my yarn stash in half this year 🙂

WIP Wednesday

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 .

These Crocodile Fingerless mitts are by R.W.

Loom Love, WIPS

WIP Wednesday

I am looming again. Its fast and easy. oh and fun!

I bought more yarn. This is called Premier Yarns Saturate in the color Zinnia. Its from the Deborah Norville Collection.

I love this yarn!! This is the third skein I’ve bought in the past week. Different color though. Although this yarn did have a few knots in the beginning I was able to get around them. I pray there are no more.

I wanted to knit something so I chose to make a drop stitch cowl. No pattern. Just a few rows of  garter stitch and then the drop stitch and some purls and e wraps and more drop stitches. I only have 3 rows of the  dropped stitches and I want to make at least 6. I hope I have enough yarn.

This is about half a ball ( 92 yards in all)

WIP Wednesday

I know I should be working on my Ravellenic games loom projects but my hooks were SCREAMING at me this week.

The Princess vs Villains C2C CAL started last week over at Two Hearts Crochet. And since it is part of my A Year of Projects, I need to get this started. I won’t be making all the villains , only 4, my faves.

So week one is Snow White and the Evil Queen. When I think of these two I think about Mary Margaret and Regina on Once Upon a Time. ( the ABC show.)  🙂 The other Princess and Villain are Cinderella and Lady Tremaine.
