My Scrappy Happy Blanket – pt 2

Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner! The next WIP I want to talk about is what I called My Scrappy Happy Blanket – pt 2. I started this project on 06/01 of this year. I’m not really using a pattern and making it up as I go along. I’m using a 4.25mm (or a G) Hook to create 11 round Granny Squares that I’ll be using the Join As You Go method to connect them all.

This project is being hosted in my Catching Fireflies bag by Bags by Awesome Granny. Her shop can be found here. (as Of Monday, the bag’s in the shop! It’s called “Summer Nights Blue.” Yay!!!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This project will probably take me up until the end of the year (if not longer), and will contain SOOO many fingering weight scraps leftover from pairs of socks I’ve made myself. I haven’t had the ball bands on it for FOREVER, so I’ll try to update you with colors on the scraps when I know where they came from. I have scraps of my Sock Blank socks, and a few of the shawls I finished this year too. Can’t remember the names of them. I’m sorry.

The blanket isn’t all that much to look at right now, as I’m working on the squares. I haven’t even connected any of the squares yet. I have too few of them. Maybe when I have several more rows worth of squares, then I’ll feel motivated to start connecting them. Here is what I have so far…

Update 9/7:

I’ve finished 4 squares for this blanket since the last time I updated this post.

I have also used the Join As You Go method to put together two rows. I still have a few rows of squares left to add, but I wanted to stop and show you what I’ve been working on.

Update 12/21:

I have finished all of the squares for this blanket. I’ve realized that I need to mattress seam it together, as I’m running out of the JAYG yarn I had chosen. This is why it’s stalled out as much as it has. I’ll get to it eventually, I suppose…

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Green Sock

Hiya Beautiful Makers! The next FO I wish to talk about is what I called “Green Socks.”

I used the “Toe-Up Socks With A Difference” pattern by Wendy D. Johnson. I used 286.44 yards of Knit Picks Stroll Tonal “Canopy.” I used size US 1, 2.25mm 9 inch circ needles. While these socks were on the needles, I housed it in my Black Jack Skellington bag by MollyKleinDesign. Her shop can be found here.

I love the way the yarn works in this sock. What do you think?

Lg Pink Hat

Hiya Beautiful Makers! I’m going to talk about another thing I finished this year. I called it “Lg Pink Hat.”

I pretty much made this hat up as I went along. When it was as tall as I wanted it, I just decreased every 8 stitches every other row. I used 120.24 yards of Paintbox Yarns 100% Worsted Superwash Wool “Bubblegum Pink.” I used size US 6, 4.0 mm 16 inch Marblz circ needles.

While this hat was on the needles, it was housed in my Tardis bag by The Knitted Broomstick. Although Jilly’s shop’s on Hiatus right now, you can find it here.

I love the way this hat came out. What do you think?

Freddie Cat, Freddie Cat, Here’s a Blankie For You 

Hiya Beautiful Makers! The next FO I would like to talk about is what I called “Freddie Cat, Freddie Cat, Here’s a Blankie For You.”

I didn’t use a pattern for this one. I started with 10 rounds of a granny square and made up a border after that. I used 254 yards of Plymouth Yarn Company, Hot Cakes “6” Greens, white, black, & browns. I used a size H/8 5.00mm hook. I didn’t end up putting this into a proper bag. I started it late on the 19th of November and finished it early on the 21st. It was a quick project.

I love the way this blanket came together. What do you think?

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

An Empty Fire

Hiya Beautiful Makers! The next thing I finished this year is what I called “An Empty Fire.” I realized earlier this year that Emptyeye needs more hand-knit socks, so I thought to make him 4 pairs for the Holidays…

I used the “Toe-Up Socks With A Difference” pattern by Wendy D. Johnson. I used 321 yards of Trekking XXL in the “473” colorway. It honestly looks like fire. I used size US 1, 2.25mm 9 inch circ needles. 

While this project was in the needles, it was hosted in my Orange Haunted Mansion bag by The Knitted Broomstick. Jilly’s shop is currently on a hiatus, but it can be found here.

I love the sock’s color. What do you think?

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Honey Dew Socks

Hiya Beautiful Makers! The last FO I want to talk about today is what I called “Honey Dew Socks.”

This sock pattern is the “Euglassia Watsonia Socks” by Dami of JavaPurl Designs. I absolutely love this pattern of theirs. Emptyeye does too. If you were wondering, this is another pair of socks for him. (he knows, so no secrets spilled here… lol). These socks were knit with 295.7 yards of Knit Picks, Stroll Fingering “Cucumber Tonal.” I used size US 2, 2.75mm 9 inch circs and 2 16 inch circs for the toes, heels, cuffs.

While I was working on this project, the socks were housed in my Stainglass Beauty & The Beast bag by MollyKleinDesign. Molly’s shop can be found here.

November 2020 DVD Socks

Hiya Beautiful Makers! The next thing I finished I called “November 2020 DVD Socks.”

I used CC of GGKCS’ new pattern “I’ll Have Two Coffees and Two Cherry Danishes To Go Please Socks.” I used 240.24 yards of Desert Vista Dyeworks, Viso “Holiday Striped Cup.” I used size US 1, 2.25mm 9 inch circ needles.

While I was working on this pair of socks, I hosted the project in my Black Jack Skellington bag by MollyKleinDesign. Molly’s shop can be found here.

I really like the way the stripe sequence works with the pattern. What do you think?

Hexi Blanket

Hiya Beautiful Makers! The next thing I’ve been working on this year is something new. I called this project simply “Hexi Blanket.”

I’ve been making 5 round Hexis using a size US G, 4.0mm hook. I’ve been separating out the number of Hexis I’ve been making each month and counting the yardage that way. I’ll show them off the same way below.

 

August/September’s Hexis: (966 yards)

October’s Hexis: (345 yards)

November’s Hexis: (920 yards)

December’s Hexis (so far – 12/15 was the last time I made one): (92 yards)

The minis I plan on using for the Hexis are being held in my 12th Doctor Who bag by Whimzee Stitches that I bought at SSK2018. You can find Rick’s shop here.

I have a few more to go until I have enough for a blanket, but I love the way that they are coming out so far. What do you think?

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Purple Hat

Hello again, Beautiful Makers! The next thing I finished this year was what I called “Purple Hat.” This was on the needles from the 22nd to 29th of October.

For this hat, I used the “Sockhead Hat” pattern by Kelly McClure. I used 281.16 yards of Paintbox Yarns socks in the “Zebra – Violette” colorway. I used size US 3, 3.25 mm 16 inch HiyaHiya Sharps needles. This project was housed in a random Ziploc bag. I, quite frankly, forgot to assign a proper project bag to this project. But, it’s what-evs…

I really love the way this knit up. What do you think?

Barrow’s Greatest Discovery

Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner! The next WIP I want to talk about, is what I called “Barrow’s Greatest Discovery.” I started this project on 6/20 of this year.

This project is being housed in my Jack Skellington Bag by MollyKleinDesign. Her etsy shop can be found here.

I used the “Toe-Up Socks With A Difference” pattern by Wendy D. Johnson, as this pair of socks is for someone else, so I want to make sure that they fit the intended recipient. I’m using Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Socks in the “Christmas At Downton” colorway. I normally use US 1, 2.25mm 9 inch circs for a majority of the sock. Then I switch to 2 16 inch circulars for the toes, heel, and cuff.

I’m just past the first sock’s heel.  

 

Update 9/7:

I have finished the first sock and gotten to midway through the second foot.  Here’s what they look for now.

Update 12/21:

I really Do love the way these knit up! I used 292.4 yards and finished them on 9/30. What do you think?

Whispering Amira

Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner! This time, I want to talk about the project I called “Whispering Amira.”

I started this project in 2019, and it was meant to be a top I wore in the Summer, as it is a light garment. The pattern I’m working on for this one, is the “Amira” by Ranee Mueller. I’m using Knit Picks, CotLin yarn in the “Whisper” colorway. For this Summer garment, I’ve been using size US 3, 3.25mm and US 5, 3.75mm Zing needles.

The project is being housed in my “New Doctor Who” bag by WhimzeeStitches. His shop can be found here. I REALLY love this bag!

I also have a Tardis progress keeper from AdoreKnit that I’m using as a zipper pull. You can find AdoreKnit’s shop here.

This project has been restarted at least once. The First time I started this project, I thought about knitting it in pieces. But then I realized that I stink at seaming garments (well, anything in general). Once I made that decision, it was easier working in the round. There is this part now, where I’ve had to split the front and backs to allow for the sleeves. The front is on holders and the back is being worked (or is it the other way round? I can never remember… Either way, I need to work them separately). At first, I had both pieces on separate needles, and they would clank together, which drove me nuts. Then I realized I had interchangeable needles (even if I never really use them), that I could use the cable on to stop the clanking. Since I made the change-over, I really haven’t worked on it. Mostly because the Cotton and Linen blend hurts my hands after a few rows. Well, that, and the fact that each row requires you do something different, and there are times my brain DOES NOT want a pattern. Still. I’ve been thinking I should probably start working on it again soon.  What do you think?

 

Update 9/7:

Since the last time we’ve talked, I’ve decided that I want to wear this to my sister’s wedding. Which means I have to finish this top before the end of September. Wish me luck! I have done a whole pattern rotation (about 4 inches) on the back of the garment since the last time I’ve updated.

Update 12/21:

I finished this top a few days before the wedding, (9/23, actually) so that was pretty cool. It made it’s debut at breakfast the next morning. I LOVE how it fits! I ended up using 1,076 yards to finish this top. What do you think?

Don’t Test Me

Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner!

The next thing that I want to talk about, is what I’m calling “Don’t Test Me.” I started this Cowl on  8/15. This is a test knit, so I really can’t talk about much about this Cowl until the pattern premiers in October.  I can’t show off in-progress pictures or any details. I CAN show off the yarn I’ve been using, though…

The designer, CC of JavaPurl Designs has okay’d me talking about the name of the pattern, which will be “I’ll Have Two Coffees And Two Cherry Danishes To Go Please Cowl.”

I can also say that this starts with a provisional cast-on and is knit flat. I actually found an awesome new way of doing the provisional cast on that works better for me. Here’s the video I found.

I’m housing this Test Knit in my London Tardis bag by The Knitting Broomstick.  Jilly’s shop can be found here.

Sorry to tease you and dip, but it is what it is… I’ll come by and update the post as soon as the pattern releases with more details. I’m currently about half-way done knitting the Cowl, if that helps…

 

Update 12/21: I finished this WIP on  9/11. The pattern went live on 10/31. I’m not sure why I never added more to this post, TBH… It’s been a ride of a year, let me tell you… But you all know what I mean… lol. I ended up using 323 yards. What do you think of the patterning? I might have to cast on another sooner rather than later.

#51’s Won

Hello again everyone! This time I’m going to combine FO’s #51 and #53. I recently had the pleasure of doing a Test Knit for CC of The Geeky Girls Knit Podcast. She will be releasing the pattern sort of soon, but I didn’t want to put off the releasing of this post any longer in order to show off the genius patterning she came up with. Especially since I’m already so delayed… The pattern will be called “I’ll have two coffees and two cherry danishes to go please Socks,” which is a Gilmore Girls reference…

I used two different colorways and made two iterations of this pattern. One with a light variegation to it, and another with the stripey sequence she called for in the pattern. This way, others will know how well the pattern plays with both.

As the pattern has not been released, I have only been authorized to show off the bottom of each foot. I’ll try to remember to update this post later with my FO pictures. Like I said, I’ll TRY. No guarantees, though.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What do you think of these wonderful colorways? The black and Rainbow stripe colorway is called “Black Unicorn” by Spotted Circus on her Merino Sock base. The other is “English Rose” by West Yorkshire Spinners.

Granny’s Cloud Clusters Shawl

Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner! The next WIP I want to talk about, is a crochet shawl I started on 8/26 of this year. I’m calling this shawl “Granny’s Cloud Clusters Shawl.”

I am hosting this project in my “Bigger On The Inside” TARDIS bag by Addicted To Sock Knitting. Their website can be found here.

I am using the “Quick & Simple Granny Shawl” pattern by Hannah Owens. This is a shawl with Granny Clusters in it, so it goes REALLY fast. I am using a size G or 4.0mm crochet hook and 5 different colors of Cloudborn Fibers, Highland Superwash Sock Twist. I will be using the “Natural,” “Petal,” “Burgundy,” “Magenta,” and “Lavender Heather” colorways. Yes… In this exact order.

I am currently on the third color. I really DO love the way it’s working up. What do you think?

Update 9/7:

I finished the shawl Saturday Morning. This is FO #55. I did 60 rows of the Granny Clusters, then 1 row of double crochet, 1 of treble crochet, then 1 last row of double crochet to finish the shawl. What do you think of the shawl?

Power Went Out? Ok. Time for A New Project

Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner! The next WIP that I’m going to talk about, I called “Power Went Out? Ok. Time for A New Project.” I started this project on 8/4 of this year. If you don’t know, that’s the date that Storm Isias hit our area, and Emptyeye and I lost power for 2 1/2 days. I decided I needed a new project to work on. Hence the name…

This project is being housed in my Tardis bag by The Knitting Broomstick. Jilly’s shop can be found here.

I’m using the Quick & Simple Granny Shawl” pattern by Hannah Owens. I’ve been using a size G or 4.0mm Knitters Pride crochet hook and MANY different scraps from Stripey Socks. I’m sorry. I no longer have the ball bands, so I don’t know what the colors. I”ve been adding colors pretty much at random as well. I hope to get this shawl to at least 100 rows, which should be about 200 granny clusters in the row. I’ll see when I feel like finishing it off. Here’s what I have so far…

Update 9/7:

I finished this shawl on 8/29. It went SUPER fast! This is FO #54 for the year. I LOVE this shawl. What do you think?

Toddler Hat

Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner! The next “WIP” I wish to discuss, is what I called “Toddler Hat.”

This hat went super fast. As in, I cast it on and finished it on 8/25. This is FO #53. I used Paintbox Yarns, superwash wool, Simply Aran in the “Vanilla Cream,” “Slate Green,” “Pistachio Green,” “Soft Fudge,” and “Red Wine” colorways. For the hat, I used size US 6, 4.0mm needles for the ribbing, and size US 8, 5.0mm needles for the rest of the hat. Switching to DPNs for the crown decreases. The project was done so quickly, I just housed it in a Ziploc bag… lol.

Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner!

The next “WIP” I want to talk about is what I called “Bebe Barley T.” This knit went SUPER quick. As in, I was able to cast on and finish the hat on 8/16 and didn’t even have time to allocate a bag to include it to. This is FO 51 for the year.

The pattern I used for this hat, was the “Barley” pattern by TinCanKnits. I used Plymouth Yarns, Hot Cakes, in the color 6 “Garden Mix” colorway. I used size US 6, 4.0mm needles for the ribbing, and US 8, 5.0mm needles for the rest. Switched to DPNs for the crown decreases, as usual.

Blanket Para Bebe

Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner! The next “WIP” I want to talk about is what I called “Blanket Para Bebe.” This is FO #52 for the year.

This blanket was housed in my Pink Mattress bag by The Knitting Broomstick. Jilly’s Etsy shop can be found here.

I started this blanket on 08/13 and finished this blanket on 8/25. It was a pretty quick knit, considering. I used the “Fuss Free Baby Blanket” pattern by Louise Tillbrook Designs and size US7, 4.5mm Knitters Pride Smart Sticks 24 inch cable, then I graduated it to a ChaioGoo red lace 60 inch cable once it got big enough.

I used Paintbox Yarns, superwash wool, Simply Aran in the “Vanilla Cream,” “Slate Green,” “Pistachio Green,” “Soft Fudge,” and “Red Wine” (in this order) colorways. To specify, I used 885 total yards. This is broken down as:

  • Vanilla Cream: 153 yards
  • Slate Green: 195 yards
  • PIstachio Green: 191 yards
  • Soft Fudge: 185 yards
  • Red Wine: 161 yards

The plan was to have the Soft Fudge color frame the other colors.  Here are some pictures of the blanket. I really love the way it came out! What do you all think?

Jumping to #49’s Beat

Hello everyone! I also just realized I never posted this second cross stitch project I finished. I will call this FO #49. I called it “Super Mario.”

The pattern I used for this project was called “Super Mario” by Stitch Area. Their pattern store can be found here.

I finished this piece on the 9th of August. Just in time for Emptyeye’s Birthday. I’m going to let him choose the frame for it.

Here are some progress pictures for this project.

Believe it or not… Once I finished the blue, everything else FLEW! I think I worked on it for 5 hours or so each day for 3 days in a row to finish it from the third picture to the FO picture. It’s pretty crazy how fast I can finish things, huh? What do you think?

Saying Aloha to #48

Hello again everyone! I forgot to mention. I finished a cross-stitch project that I worked on from late May into early June. I’ll put this as FO #48.

This project was what I called “Aloha Pineapple.” The pattern I followed was called “You Had Me At Aloha” by Stitch Area.

Their pattern store can be found here. If you stitch, might I recommend trying them out. They have SUCH wonderful patterns. As evidenced by the fact that I bought a few patterns from them all at once… Lol.  The patterns are also written so that a beginning stitcher could also make one of these designs.

I decided to use DMC #310, which is black floss. This is what the pattern calls for. But, I may be thinking about making more of these in multple of colors for other recipients. Can’t confirm it at this time, but you never know…

Here are all the pictures I took while working on this piece.

 

What do you think of this piece? I still have to FFO (Finish Finish. Like in a frame, or other methods) it. But I LOVE the way it came out!

Very Scrappy and Happy!

Hello everyone! I know it’s been a bit since I came by and talked about FOs. In fact, I think it’s been over a month and a half. So, don’t be surprised if there are quite a few FO Parade posts today….  With this in mind, let’s talk about FO #37. I called this project “My Scrappy Happy Blanket.” It took me until early July to finish it and I started it just before the beginning of 2020.

I finished 49 fingering weight squares that are all 11 granny square rows using a size G (or 4.25mm) hook. All the squares use different dyers and colors. I honestly don’t remember them all. Sorry…

 

Then I attached them with many different grey stripes and put a border with “Dear Diary” by Knit Picks. This is a few greys, and a bit of pink. Just to mix everything up. I believe it came out pretty awesome. The blanket itself is one of the Grand Prizes for the Craft Along that I’m hosting on my podcast (which reminds me… I need to make this announcement as soon as I get the second blanket finished/put together…So, um… SPOILER ALERT? lol)

4 Rows connected.

6 rows connected. 2 more to go at this point…

I really do love the way this came out, considering the scrappy nature of the project. What do you think?

Super Secret Isn’t So Secret Anymore… lol.

Hiya! I called FO #18 “Super Secret Design.”

I had designed a shawl for Break Month in the Harry Potter Knit Crochet House Cup (HPKCHC) Ravelry group. The result was my “Wizarding World Tour Shawl” Pattern Sample. The idea was to represent all 4 locations we were “visiting” during Break Month in the shawl. I think I did a pretty good job. I can never tell, but time will tell as people start finishing the project, I suppose. But, I digress…

I used “Tea Time” from Wonderland yarns, 3 colors from Nice & Knit. “May Flowers,” “Mint Chip,” and “Watermelon.” I really wanted to play with colors. I think I managed to do that.  What do you think?

Lovely Squares

Hello again everyone! The last FO of 2019 was 32 yellow squares and 18 black squares for a new Granny Square blanket. This is a blanket I started for a surprise Recipient and their SO (Significant Other). I’m calling the project “I Can Hear The Bells.”

Here are the rows I connected in December. What do you think of my progress?

This means I have a total of 48,274.1 yards for the year. Quite awesome, huh?  Either way, I’ll be back for an FO parade in 2020!

My Blanket Statement

Hello again everyone! FO #76 for 2019 was what I called “December 2019 Blanket Squares.”

I’m just doing granny squares on a size I (eye) Hook. Here’s the final layout. What do you think?

I still have to connect all the squares and finish up the border. This is how the blanket will sit for a bit, as I have other things I need to finish first…
