Its been so long since I’ve posted. Halloween is over , thank goodness. It was a crazy October.
A few ups and downs. The sweater I was knitting came out like crap, but my customer still wanted it. It was wearable, I just didnt like how it came out.
I missed crocheting and knitting for fun. Once I was done with orders I went to my new yarn basket … all the yarn I bought from A.C. Moore, And I made a Jazzy Striping Scarf . Which I turned in to an infinity scarf. I used Red Hearts Stripes in Flamenco Stripe colorway. I regret only buying one. I LOVE this colorway! (btw, Jill got some hair 🙂 )
This cowl I made in September and forgot to post it in a YOP post. Pattern is called Round Shell Stitch cowl. Yarn used : Red Heart Medley in Eclectic. Which has been discontinued 😦
In the beginning of October before the Halloween rush, I was able to start the Sophie’s Universe blanket. I did parts 1 and 2 now I am on part 3. round 20. I will be writing up its own post for each part with colors I am using.
This basket cover I made last night. It started as a hat but I wanted to use the entire skein so I made a basket cover. The yarn I used was Stitch Studio by Nicole. Lunar Tides in the Multi/cool colorway.
Here are some customer pics of this year’s Halloween. I hope I get more. They are just too cute!!
In non yarn news… Last weekend my fiance and I spent the weekend in Mystic Ct.. like we did a few years ago. Ate at Mystic Pizza Finally!!!! I loved their pizza , Jon not so much. ( he sucks anyway..lol ) We stayed at the Howard Johnson(again) . Since our last stay they updated the rooms. they are so pretty. I loved their aqua wall color ❤
After pulling 2 mini skeins of yarn apart , I found the correct colorway for my cabled headband and only used about 5 inches of it 🙂 lol
So as you can tell I bought more yarn this weekend to finish a project. But that was on friday, on Saturday after seeing The Kingsman, back to AC Moore I went and bought all this……
Yes I have a problem..lol I love Stitch Studio by Nicole!! her yarns were $2 each ( SALE!!) and the smaller ones were $1 each. The Red Hearts ( Medley is discontinued according to ravelry 😦 ) were full price $3.49 I think. Ive gone to AC More 3 times this month and finally signed up for a rewards card 🙂
When sewn this will be 1 of 2 seed stitch fingerless mitts. Another stitch I love.
Here we are at week 11 and the beginning of a very busy Halloween season for me 🙂 I will be adding new hats to my etsy shop THIS WEEK, Princess Leia, and a few styles of Pumpkin hats also a surprise hat that I wont be sharing until I am done. I didnt really want to make this hat because of the hair but its actually pretty fun..lol.
Yesterday while Jon was at the theater watching IT I went to A.C.Moore, The Christmas Tree shop and 5 Below ( its like the Dollar Tree but everything is UNDER $5 ).
The only thing I needed was the light pink yarn. My go to yarn has always been Red Heart, but this Studio Classic by Nicole may be replacing Red Heart for me. Its softer, there is more yardage and its less $$$$ , at A.C Moore. I believe its an exclusive like I Love This Yarn is for Hobby Lobby. I also bought some faux fur, cross stitch kits and Studio Samples by Nicole… I couldn’t pass up yarn for a $1 🙂
here is the rest of my haul (except from 5 Below. I only bought a plastic plant and a birthday card)
I have a favor to ask… forget I ever mentioned the Princess Mononoke Pullover. I messed up so bad. I was suppose to add stitches for a few rows before the chart portion. Being almost done with the chart , there is no way I am ripping back rows.
Moving on….. I started a new hobby. Cross Stitching. I must say it is a BLAST. I bought some cheapy packs to practice with… Here is one that took me about a week to make.
I made 2 new hats for my etsy shop. 2 styles of Pumpkin hats and Princess Leia 🙂
I posted about the Log Cabin blanket on Friday. I thought it would be a good stash buster for all the balls of yarn I have instead of making a bunch of little projects. Now I am just making a bunch of little squares..lol
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.
