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
Goodbye year 6….
Before year 6 of A Year of Projects is gone for good, ( so depressing) I needed to get a few things finished.
The holiday flag that has been laying around since year 6 started is now done. I’ve been looking at it in my WIPS basket and couldn’t bring myself to finish it the way it was , so I ripped off the tree and voila’ … all done.. and perfect 🙂
I’m at a crossroad with the Gilmore Girls blanket. I had to finish Luke’s Diner. It would bug me if I didn’t . I am not sure if I will make the other blocks though. I am pretty dedicated to the FRIENDS blanket. We’ll see.
Another c2c panel that needed to be finished is Aurora. Lack of gold yarn stopped me from finishing this….when I got more it went to the Luke’s Diner panel then the MagicKarp hats. She is now finished… On to Ariel 🙂
Does anyone remember the Emoji Blanket I was working on? I have 6 emojis done… and I was deciding on what the other 3 will be…. I made the Poo emoji this past week.
And I finished this moss and front post stitch pony tail hat. ❤
WIPS for the week are this stockinette stitch shawl… it grew a little bit from last week.
And I started another shawl… its called Skewed . its a free pattern on ravelry.
for the last time…. my superhero YOP banner…..
One more week and year 6 will be gone!
For year 7 I will be doing something with all the yarn balls i have… stash slim down is what I am calling it. So to get ready , I have been measuring all my balls .
For the pinks, reds , oranges, and yellows I have about a thousand yards. I havent added the total of the blues, greens, and purples yet. I still have more to do. I’m just giving my yard counter a break 😆
My FO ( Finished Object) for the the week is the adorable Sumo wrestler ❤ and a loom knitted headband.
And my WIP ( work in progress) is my first shawl…… Stockinette Shawl. its a free pattern on ravelry.
So last Sunday I started my Wonder Woman bag. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make a hat or a bag.( big enough to fit my wallet) . All week I was thinking bag or hat, hat or bag. Wednesday night I chose bag. Its too warm for a hat. Plus I can use this when I see Wonder Woman on Thursday ( BTW I loved that movie. Gale makes a great Wonder Woman ❤ )
Its knitted if anyone was wondering 🙂 Pattern for the hat can be found here .
Now back to my Mononoke Pullover and FRIENDS cal banner.
My knitting is getting in the way of finishing my crochet WIPS..lol Ive been so obsessed with making my pullover that all the projects I wanted to finish by the end of June are still in my WIP basket.
I was able to finish my Owl wall hanging by Divine Debris. Its part of a Halloween Quartet but I just wanted to make the owl. I love how it came out. I hung it with a stick instead of a dowel.
Oi! this banner! moving on to the E now. Its gonna be huge !
And after a few people saying they didnt understand my Loom knit pattern for the dish towel holder , I updated it and added more pictures.
