WIP WEDNESDAY

I recently received a custom order for four hats from a nice lady I used to work with. She is having a baby boy and wanted some hats made for him and also a hat for his big sister too. Here is a peek at the delicious yarn I am using to make his hat and the work that has been done so far.

WIP Wednesday

Hello dear friends. Hope this Wednesday was kind to you. It was a crazy day here. Husband had toe surgery and he’s dealing with the pain from that.

I’ve been working on a hat for myself recently. I made a hat for Husband a few months ago and I loved the pattern so when I found this gorgeous blue yarn at Joann’s. It’s called Stitch. Rock. Love. Sheep(ish) Yarn. It’s robins egg blue. It’s lovely and has a nice sheen to it. Being single ply,  there are variances in the thickness of the yarn but not enough to distract from the pattern.

The pictures do not do the color justice. You would really have to see it I person but believe me, it is fantastic!

Are you working on anything new or special? Do share!

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

WIP THURSDAY

Hello everyone! Hope this past week was good to you. I don’t know about you but I am so thankful the election is over! Too much hating and ads everywhere for me. But I digress. You are here to see the newest WIP! And…. Here it is!

This is a Bandana Cowl. You can find the pattern here. It’s a really cool pattern incorporating some new elements of knitting for me like wrap and turn for short rows. I really like the way it is constructed. This is one WIP post where you get to see the finished project too. I actually finished the cowl late last night!

It’s a bulky cowl but since it is constructed with short rows you don’t get the bulk behind your neck so you can easily wear it a coat and not have too much fabric at your collar. On the flat photos you can really see the bandana like quality. Its like wearing a bandana without having to do all the folding and tying! 🙂

Try it out. You won’t be disappointed!

Pintastic Friday

Hey Guys! Sorry I missed our WIP Wednesday post.  I didn’t have anything new to post in that department just yet and I have been on a reading binge lately so I’m sorry. 😦

Here is the pintastic friday for this week!

1. Cardigan – I desperately want to make a cardigan or sweater coat for myself sometime soon and this one might fit the bill.

2. Truly Flat Ribbed Hat – Brilliant!

3. Spider Web – (this picture is about 2/3rds of the way down the page.  The pattern is found here.)

4. Effortless cowl – umm, yes please!

5. Yarn Ball Holder Idea – This is such a wonderful idea!  I need to go get an adorable pot now!  World Market trip? I think yes! 🙂

 

The weather is supposed to get really “interesting” later this weekend and early next week here so I may or may not be back next week as we may or may not have power for an extended period of time.  Hurricane Sandy might just turn our area (VIrginia) into soup.  Hope you guys are out of harms way and if not, then I hope you stay high and dry with power!  Good luck to all those East Coasters who will be affected by Terrible Sandy!
