A Year of Projects, WIPS

YOP7 week 7

There isnt much to mention this week.. its been pretty dull.

My WIP for the month, like I mentioned last week, is the Princess Mononoke Pullover. I was able to take a better picture. I need to get needles with a longer cord. These are 16 inches.

The mask is almost complete. About 20 more rows..lol 🙂

My FO’s were actually finished a few weeks ago….

I made an infinity scarf on my purple KK loom. Ive loved this yarn for so long. its by Fancy Yarns. I have no idea what the colorway is.

Below is the cowl I posted about last month for a WIP Wednesday.

And lastly, I frogged the Man hat. ugh!!! I got to the decrease and the hat was at a point where I could try it on. Too tight. It broke my heart to take it apart. Do I have any ambition to start over…. does not look good.  Although I love the yarn and the pattern, doing the knit rows hurt my thumb. Must be the thick yarn.

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.

YOP7 week 4

I was going to do the A year of Projects posts every other week so I wasn’t in a rush to get something started or finished to show….. But I have to show off this amazing FO !!!!

Its called Mermaid’s Cowl. I really love this stitch. I used a g size hook instead of the H the pattern called for. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft: Pink Camo. I used all but a little ball of this yarn. Its also not as wide as the pattern. It covers the neck( my mannequin head has a longer neck than I do..lol) .

And for my WIP… Another crochet along by Chaos and Chop Suey.  This one is for Grease. One of my all time favorite movies.  Week one is Pink Ladies. I am at the decrease 🙂 I will finish the other half over the next few days so I do not fall behind 🙂

Work In Progress Wednesday!

I love when I have a WIP to show on Wednesday . 🙂 If you have read any of my A Year of Projects post from this  or last month,  you would know I am slashing my stash.  Too mush yarn for a little space.

Any way I have this ball of yarn from Red Heart called Artist Print. Its so beautiful. But I haven’t had any luck with finding the right project for it. A few days ago I decided it was time. Its a big ball.. a full skein I believe.  I looked on ravelry for the colorway to see what it looks up knitted and crocheted .

I found a project called Fifi scarf  .  I loved it and had to make one for myself. Its a knitted project. Perfect. I am a bit obsessed with knitting at the moment.

Its an easy pattern and with this yarn its working up beautifully. I am at the tricky part. I have to create the “loop” that the other side of the scarf will go through. Ive never had to divide my knitting  but it went pretty well. No dropped stitches 🙂 🙂

The picture above shows where I had to divide the stitches. 12 on each needle. I did the k1,p1 ribbing on one half of the stitches last night. Tonight I will cut the yarn and do the ribbing for the other 12 stitches.

A Year of Projects

A Year of Projects week 1 Year 7 !!!!!!

Hello and Welcome to A year of Projects Year 7 ( didn’t I say that for year 6 ? lol) I’m Erin.. This is my blog 🙂  <—- I do that a lot here.  Please check out our awesome Ravelry group.  .

So a major part of my year 7 of a year of projects is to slim down my yarn stash . I have so many balls of yarn , its insane. Not all have been photographed or measured yet. I made a bundle of patterns on ravelry for all these balls of yarn , especially the worsted weight. But overthinking like I do, I just might make a 10 stitch blanket.

A big stash buster will be the Flower Power Valance .. I will be making 2. Here is one of many 🙂 The next photo is the beginning of the Echinopsis Cactus. I love crocheted plants. They dont die and are cat safe 🙂 🙂  my other WIP is a Endless Summer Tunic. Its so simple. I might add another color but for now its Aran ( red heart ).

Not being a big fan of pink I want to use up all the pink I have. Here are 2 projects that helped me with that. I used the same ball of sparkly pink for both projects. Unknown brand. Its the lighter pink for the piggy container and the darker pink for the granny square.
