Fourteen’s Keen!

Here is another FO I needed to finish before Stash Dash. The co-worker I was making this from deserved to get this sooner rather than later. Her daughter is going through Dialysis and deserves to have something to cuddle with.

I called this project┬á “Spiked Punch Basket Blanket.” You’ll see why in a bit. I promise. I tried to be cute with this project name. We’ll see if you appreciate this as much as I did.

The pattern I used was one of my own. I based a baby blanket pattern on the weaving of a basket. It’s a simple pattern that I’ve used multiple times. If you are looking for the pattern, you can find it on Ravelry. I worked on this from February 16th until May 15th.

My co-worker’s daughter REALLY loves Purple. Which is a pretty good thing. I LOVE purple too. ­čśë (like duh, if you’ve been reading┬á my blog for awhile…) So, I used 2 and a half skeins of┬áMiss Babs Yowza skein in the colorway “Spiked Punch.” A total of 1,400 yards.

This was knit on a US 9 (5.5mm) Marblz circs needles.


LOVE how this came out, and the Co-worker REALLY liked that I finished this last Wednesday, and was able to get it to her so fast. ­čÖé

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!



Lucky #13!

Hello everyone! I know it’s been awhile. I promise, I’ve been trying to finish things. I’ve been holding a few FO’s back until the end of this month (see upcoming post for the reason why).

So, here’s Lucky #13. ┬á Here is what I called simply April’s DVD Socks.

I started this sock on April 1st. I finished the pair on April 24th. I absolutely LOVE how these knit up!

I used the “Toe-Up Socks With A Difference” by Wendy D. Johnson this month. I LOVE how easy the heel flap and gusset hug my feet!

I use a size US 1 (2.25mm) needles. 2 16 inch circs for the heels, toes, and cuffs. I also used a 9 inch circ for the rest of the socks.
I also used 281.8 yards of Desert Vista Dyeworks “Poodle Skirt” on their Viso base.

Until Next Time! Happy Crafting!
