If you didnt catch my Year of Projects post from yesterday , check it out here or just continue reading.
I actually have 4 new projects. I always seem to have more than one WIP . ( work in progress) Some I forget for a few weeks, some for months. I have some going on years.
Up first…. I love scarecrows. So I wanted to make a cute little cuddler. ( Pattern by Once Upon a Hook crochet) I have the front and back panels done. This week I plan to make the legs and arms and the other little pieces for him. Behind the cuddler is a scarecrow flag…. or will be. Pattern by Snappy Tots
Also by Snappy Tots , Sweet Ridges Cupcake bag… I don’t really like working with thick yarn but I wanted to use this skein of Bernat Baby blanket yarn from my stash and Hometown USA Phoenix Azalea.
And closing out this post is Fair Isle slippers from Crochet magazine , Winter 2019 issue. As you can see I just started. I have small feet so I am making the 5/6 size which is the smallest size and they are about a half inch big 🙂
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.
My work in progress for this Wednesday is craft and non craft related. My work in progess for this Wednesday is craft and non craft related.
My craft related WIP is something for the Halloween season. When I first saw these sugar skulls, I fell inlove. They’re awesome. And for some reason I am into skulls this year. I’m not sure where I will hang this project when its finished at this moment but I will find a spot.
what do you think so far? 🙂
Now for the non craft related WIP. I recently enrolled in Writing Stories for Children through Stratford Career Institute. I passed my first 2 tests, now I have to write a scene using what I learned from my reading. I’ve been putting this off for a month.How hard can writing one little scene be?
I got nothing!
It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, but I want to get an A for it. Lets start with an age range…. hows middle schoolers? now place…. gym class?
