WIP Thursday

I have made the least progress on this. I'm designing mittens for Zooey. I think I'm going to make her a pair every year with a theme and the year in them. These will be 2012 with owls. I wanted to finish them before fall. Not making fast progress though. New goal - cast on by Monday!!!

WIP Tuesday

I'm not going to be overly ambitious with this one. It is taking me some time. A full sweater just takes repeat after repeat. Goal is to hit the arm holes by labor day. Doable??

WIP Monday

I figure to push myself I'll do a crafting work in progress each day this week. Today's work in progress are a pair of fun socks called Berry Patch. I'm onto the leg of the first sock. Goal for this week is to finish this sock!!

FO Yoda Hat

Above are the pre-felted photos so you can get a feel for how large it was before felting.

Project Details:
I used cascade 220 heathers for this. A nice green color and size 13 needles. I started on August 18 and finished on August 25. I found the pattern easy to follow and you could felt this down to nearly any size. I only used about 3/4 of a skein of yarn as well.

Bowls With Boarders!

There is this great blog hop that I joined. It is called bowls with boarders. Regina came up with this great paper piece pattern - which I used to stack them this high.  Please check out all the other bowls for today!

I wanted a table runner but didn't want to keep stacking bowls - so I decided to take my favorite fabric and use it on the other half.

After that I decided my love of hexagons had to come out as well.  This was an incredibly fun project!  You should check out the rest of the bowls on the site.  So impressive!

FO August Quilt Bee Block

Another block done. This one was nice and easy - although I really had to work hard to figure out the "block" pattern. Now I might be ready for a log cabin!

FO Crazy Fluffy Scarf




Project Details:
My mother-in-law wanted to try knitting this funky scarf. She didn't understand the pattern so I bought some of the yarn and gave it a go. Only 30 yards of yarn and the scarf looks like ribbons and puff. I started it on July 27 and finished on August 2nd. Not sure I would make it again but it is fun looking!
