Can you have too many projects at once? I think not!

Well… at least I hope you can’t have too many projects going on at once. Otherwise, I’d be in trouble this week!

I sometimes arrange my Work-in-Progress Wednesday post into a lovely theme… but not this week. Today’s theme is: ‘hey! look at all the stuff I’m working on!’

Enjoy!

Colorwork Hearts Hat

I got the itch to do a little bit of colorwork, and I found an adorable pattern: From Norway with Love.

Colorwork Knitting hat progress hearts rainbow

I got a little carried away with knitting during the Super Bowl (you can sneak a peek at the finished result on my project page)… but we’ll just pretend I didn’t.

The pattern is adorable, and I’m using Martha Stewart’s Extra Soft Wool for the main color and an array of leftover bits of 100% wool for the hearts. I would have been hesitant about making a hat from a wool/acrylic blend, but since the hat is stranded, the 100% wool used for the colorwork will keep it nice and toasty.

White Scarf

I’m in a bit of a ‘leftovers’ phase. You know… you get little bits leftover from projects, and you don’t know what to do with them?

Well… I’m doing something with them! I gathered all of my white sport & dk weight yarns:

And I’m knitting a simple ribbed scarf (details on my Ravelry project page). It’s simple ‘evening’ knitting, and I’m loving it! I love how each white yarn is a little bit different: some fuzzy, some slick, some thinner than others… and I’m using up leftovers!

Animals!

Before you ask: no, it is not possible to have too many stuffed animals. I don’t even want to hear of it.

I have a lot of animals in progress. I’m preparing for the release of a teddy bear pattern, so I’m making lots of extra samples:

teddy bear crochet progress

Yarn: Plymouth Galway Worsted (100% wool), size H hook

giant crochet bear

Yarn: Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) held double, size K hook

I’m really into showing how one pattern can be worked up in different yarns… so I’m making a giant bear, too! So much fun!

I’m also working on a custom owl:

Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Worsted, size H hook

And, last but not least… I’m making the sample for the next Kit Club shipment! What will it be?!?

Hope you’re having a great crochet and knitting week!

Be sure to have a pop by this Friday… I’m trying something new and different for this FO Friday! I think you’ll like it!


That’s what I’ve been up to this week… how about you? I hope you have an awesome Wednesday, and get some great knitting/crocheting done this week!

    I decided to update/revise a pattern that I did back in 2009 for my grand daughter Madison’s 6th birthday. I have rewritten the entire Owl Hat pattern and am knitting the baby size, good thing I have 10 grand children – the different sizes are bound to fit one of them.
    I have to finish crocheting my great nieces blanket along with an owl hat that my sister wanted for her. I am also slowly but surely organizing my yarn and patterns together in bags so that when I get one finished I just grab the next.

    Plus I have to finish Stacey’s Craftsy course so I can get to work on my kits that arrived in the mail today.

    Everything looks great but I love the hat! The colors are fantastic.

    If 6 is too many then I’m in more trouble than you as I currently have 8 (9 if you count the one with the stain that I’ve kinda abandoned while I figure out what to do with it). All your projects look great.

    I agree….you can never have too many stuffed animals. can’t wait to see what the next kit is!
