#63 Is Sweet

Hello again everyone! I finished another shawl this year. I was calling it “Ice Cream Social 2018 KAL.”

This was from a KAL based on the pattern based on a pattern by the same name from J.L. Fleckenstein of the Lucky Violet Yarn company. I LOVE how this shawl knit up.  I used US 6, 4.0mm needles.

It was a Total of 1,575.1 yards. There were 5 colors I used for this shawl.

  1. Queen City, NODA Sock, “Slumber Party”
  2. Supernatural Yarns, Siren Sock “Frozen”
  3. Leading Men Fiber Arts, Diva “Deep Sea”
  4. GnomeAcres, Fancy Gnome “Dobby”
  5. Stranded Dyeworks, BFL Nylon Fingering “Four Two Two Four”

 

What do you think of the color combo?  I’m SUPER in love with it!

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

#61’s Musical!!!

Hello again everyone! Hope your day is going well!!!  The fourth and final thing that I’ve finished since the last time we’ve talked FO’s is what I called “December DVD Socks.” I finished these socks within 7 days, which is a record for me.

This month, I used the “Vanilla is the New Black” pattern by Vanessa Fletcher. As a recap, I’ve been knitting a pair of socks every month with Desert Vista Dyeworks’ Viso base. This month, I used “Bing and the Andrews Sisters.” I LOVE the colors in the stripes of this one. What do you think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

60’s Nifty!!!

Hello again everyone!  The third thing I’ve finished since the last time I’ve updated you on my FO’s is what I called “Hat #2.”

I used the “Ribbed Watchman’s Hat” pattern by Channah Koppel, which is essentially 2×2 ribbing. I really love the color combo I put together out of Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice. I used “Mint” and “Silver Grey.” What do you think?

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

#59 Is Fine! ;)

Hello again!  This next Finished Object I called “Hot Damn!!! Tune It Up!!!” It was the pattern “Fine Tune” by Joji Locatelli. This was part of the Joji Along. I literally finished this cowl within 24 hours before the end of the KAL. I wasn’t going to push myself, but I’m glad I did! It looks so pretty!!!

I used 4 different colors on this one. The two main colors are:

  1. Woolen Boon Fingering “Copper Boom”
  2. Hooker’s Corner Fingering “Honey Bear”

 

The Two contrasting colors are:

  1. Hooker’s Corner Fingering “Hot Damn”
  2. Whimzee Stitches, Standard Sock “Autumn Forest Walk”

 

What do you all think of the color combo?

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!!!

#58’s Great!

Hello everyone!  Hope your December is going well so far! I’ve finished a few things since the last time we talked. I’ll be spreading the posts out a bit today, so you won’t be surprised.

The first thing that I finished since the last time we talked was what I called “Pattern ALL The Things!!” This was a pair of socks that I had started for a KAL back in April and never finished. I had a full sock to do, but I finished it in under a week. I don’t know why it took me so long.

The pattern I used for this project is “–. .–. -.- .–. Socks (GPKP 2016)” by C.C. Almon. I also used Regia, Arne & Carlos. The Tinn Colorway. I really love how the color sequence and pattern play well together.  I REALLY have no idea why I delayed finished these…

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!
