And Finally, #68!

Hello again everyone! I have 1 final FO for 2018! I hope you’ve had as much fun with this as I have this year. This makes 68 total FO’s for the sake of this blog.

This last FO I called “Mixed-Up, Fall-Ish.” I finished this pair of socks in 16 days, which is AMAZING for me! I used the “Vanilla is the New Black” by Vanessa Fletcher. I also used 4 different colors in this “scrappy socks.”

  1. Hooker’s Corner, Fingering “Hot Damn”

  2. Hooker’s Corner, Fingering “Honey Bear”

  3. Woolen Boon, Fingering “Copper Boom”

  4. Whimzee Stitches Yarn Co., Standard Sock “Autumn Forest Walk”

I LOVE the way that everything worked up together. I can wear these in my boots, and I can’t wait to wear them. What do you all think?

Thank you for following me on my journey this year. I REALLY do appreciate it!

Until the next Post, Happy Crafting!

67’s On Fire!

Hello again everyone! I made a hat for myself during the Holiday Season. Something I could work on while I was off visiting family.

I used the “Sockhead Slouch Hat” pattern by Kelly McClure and West Yorkshire Spinners 4-ply in the “Tequilla Sunrise” colorway. I REALLY love how this came out. I kept thinking to myself “Wow! I’m knitting the Dunkin Logo…” It was pretty funny. What do you think?

Until Next Time! Happy Crafting!

Matchy-Matchy #65

Hello again everyone! I had made a hat that I gave to someone for Christmas. This one had matched the others I have made. I used the “Ribbed Watchman’s Hat” by Channah Koppel.

I used Lion’s Brand, Vanna’s Choice in the “Silver Grey” and “Mint.” I can’t believe how well these two colorways play together. What do you think?

Until Next Time! Happy Crafting!

#64’s On Point

Hello everyone! I have a few more things that I finished in 2018. I’m going to be posting them in almost rapid succession, so yeah…

The first thing that I finished, I called “Point Me In The Right Direction.”

I used “CC’s Vanilla Cappuccino Socks” by CC Almon and Gale’s Art Sparkle Single Sock Blank in the “Poinsettia” colorway. I absolutely LOVE the way both of these mesh together. What do you think?

Until Next Time! Happy Crafting!
