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!’
Colorwork Hearts Hat
I got the itch to do a little bit of colorwork, and I found an adorable pattern: From Norway with Love.
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.
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!
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:
Yarn: Plymouth Galway Worsted (100% wool), size H hook
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!
