Quarter Century #25

Hello again! This time, I would like to talk about FO #25 for the year. 

I called this one “Gemini’s In Red-Trograde” because I’m Punny like that! This pattern was the “Gemini” top by Jane Richmond. This pattern has been in my queue for quite a bit, and I wanted to have it to wear at SSK this year. Especially since I knew that it would be warmer. Never ended up wearing it, but that’s neither here, nor there…

I finished this on July 9th after starting it June 21st. I used Red Heart Comfort Sport in both the “Cardinal Red” and “Amethyst” colorways. This is such a cute top, but I wish I had made a smaller size. The shoulders are a bit too baggy. Still wearing it as is, so there’s that… lol.

I used a US 6 – 4.0 mm, and a US 7 – 4.5 mm. This ended up being a total of 1,220 yards for Stash Dash as well, so GO ME!!! 🙂 lol.

 

Well, Until Next Time!

#24 is Back, Back Again…

Hello again everyone! As promised, I have another FO I would like to Parade in front of you today. Again, I’m sorry I waited so long to come back to talk about what I’ve been working on.  But, here goes.

#24 is  what I called “June SS Socks” on Ravelry. 

I used a US 1 (a 2.25mm) needle on this one. Used a 9 inch circ for the bulk of the sock, but 2 16 inch circs for the heels, toes, and cuffs, as is usual for socks I make for myself. I entered this pair of socks for The Knitgirllls’  Self-Striping KAL. The colorway  was “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by FabFunkyFibres, Self-striping Sock.

I absolutely LOVE how these socks came out. They’re nice and warm. Plus, I also got a chance to show off the poster from the album that Emptyeye and I have in our Media Room.

Well, Until Next Time!

Proud Of #23

Sorry it’s been awhile since I did an update on my FO Parade. I’ve got a few going up today, so I’m sorry if your feeds go nuts. I’ll try to spread out the posts a bit over the course of today.  Hopefully that helps.
That said, let’s move on to the first FO I would like to mention, #23. This FO was actually finished on 6/26,  and only took me 10 days to finish. This is the first iteration of my first Shawl Design.  I’ll have more details on this as I get ready to release the pattern, I promise.
I used a US 7 – 4.5 mm needle. The yarn I used was Dream in Color Smooshy in the colorway “Animal Menagerie.” I LOVE this color, and how the pattern plays so well with the variegation of this skein. I ended up using 551.4 yds. I REALLY can’t wait to tell you more about the pattern down the road!  Sorry to leave you in the dark about the name of the pattern, etc, but I’m not ready to release it yet. I’m sorry…
Until Next Time!
