A Year of Projects, Crochet A Longs

YOP6 Week 52

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.

A Year of Projects

YOP6 Week 51

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.

A Year of Projects

YOP6 week 50

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.

A Year of Projects

YOP6 week 49

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 !

A Year of Projects, WIPS

YOP6 week 48

Hello and welcome to another A year of Projects progress post…….

Its another week with no finished projects. Ive been splitting my time with this FRIENDS blanket and the Princess Mononoke Pullover.

I will not start another block until I finish this banner! I am sorta regretting starting with a banner. lol I’ve actually used up all my black and white balls of yarn. So YAY 🙂

This Princess Mononoke Pullover is definitely a challenge. I am hoping to finish the intarsia portion of the pullover this week. I am so nervous I will miss a square and screw up the whole thing.

I am not a fan of knitted color change. There isn’t a simple way to carry the yarn so there are no holes or pulled yarn.

In other news : Jon and I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It was so good!!!! If you go and see it.. there is a post credit scene you shouldn’t miss if you are a real fan of the movies.

Also I started the Military diet but stopped the day after due to my cold. I will be starting it again in a few days.  ( left to right : Breakfast, Lunch , Dinner of day 1)
