Peachy Keen #18

Hello again everyone! I have one last FO to add to the parade today. Number eighteen is what I called “Everything’s Just Peachy! ;)” 

This top was the  “Anemone” by Veera Välimäki. I ended up using 2 1/2 skeins of the “Just Peachy” colorway on Leading Men Fiber Arts Showcase base. I knew that I wanted to make this pattern and wanted to use this particular colorway. So, when I saw Steve and Amanda of LMFA at SSK 2018 and they had this colorway in the number of skeins I needed, it was just meant to be. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE how this top came out and I cannot wait to wear it. I’ll have to get a picture of me wearing it out in the wild. Probably once the Winter Weather goes the f’ away…  What do you think of how this came out?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Trying #17

Hello everyone! The seventeenth thing that I finished this year was what was called “Tri-ed And True.”

I casted this on back in April of 2016. It stalled out at about 60% for over two years while I worked on other things. It had literally sat in a Ziploc bag in my UFO box for all that time. When it came time to planning my Detention OWL for this semester of HPKCHC, I saw that this shawl had been the longest on my needles and made the executive decision that I NEEDED to finish it by the end of March. So, I did. I REALLY wasn’t that far from the end. I’m STILL not sure as to why I haven’t worked on it much over the years… I had pegged this to be finished in TWO different Stash Dash years, and never QUITE got there.

Meh.  Either way, it’s done now… I even got my wonderful Hubby to model it too.  Doesn’t he look ESTATIC about it???  lol.  What do you think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

#16’s For Me

Hello again everyone! The sixteenth  thing I finished this year was what I called “Ba’s Shawl #2.”

I knit this for HPKCHC’s 5th Quidditch match.

I used 2 skeins of Miss Babs Yowza. “Echo” and “Across The Universe.” Again, with a gradient between the two colors that my Recipient had chosen. I really LOVE the combo of these two colors. What do you think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Boxy #15

Hello again everyone! The Fifteenth thing that I finished this year was what I called “We’ve Got Mars on The Horizon.”

This project has been on the needles since January of last year. I only needed to finish the shoulders, the sleeves, and the collar. So, I decided to include it as part of my OWL for the HPKCHC. I used just over two skeins of Miss Babs Yowza in the “Seductress” colorway.  I love how this sweater ended up working up, even though you can see where I added the second skein. But I’m okay with this, as it hits me just at the boob  line. Which is fine.  What do you think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Fourteen’s Keen

Hello again everyone! The fourteenth thing that I finished this year was what I called “Ba’s Shawl #1.”

I used two different colors of Miss Babs Yowza yarns. “Supriza” and “Spiked Punch.” My recipient picked the colors, and I wanted to do a fade with the two colors. I really love how this came out!  My wonderful Hubby Emptyeye was VERY awesome when he let me take a photograph of him wearing it. What do you think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Small-ish Human Knits

Hello again everyone! The latest thing that I finished I called simply “Vertebrae #2.”

I have a friend that I’m knitting tiny human knits for. I won’t say whom they’ll be for, just in case they happen to read this. I want to keep this a surprise. This is the second of two sweaters I’m going to be knitting. This is the “Vertebrae” pattern by Kelly van Niekerk. I used size 4 and size 6 (US) needles, and Bernat Baby Sport in two colorways “Baby Ombre” and “Mint.” What do you think? Isn’t this so cute???

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

#12’s Lovey Dovey

Hello again everyone! Welcome back to my FO Parade! It’s been a busy few weeks here in my neck of the woods. So, I’m going to apologize for the large number of posts going up today… Now that this caveat is out of the way, let’s start the Parade.

The 12th thing that I finished was part of my HPKCHC Detention OWL. This project was on the needles (or off, as I had finished the body and only needed sleeves) for almost a year. It was sitting in my UFO (Unfinished Objects) bin for close to 11 months. Can you tell I have an issue putting myself onto “Sleeve Island?”

I called this project “I’m Lovin’ It.” 

 

The pattern I used on this project was the “All The Love” by Joji Locatelli, size US 4 and US 6 needles. I LOVED this Pinky Colorway by Dream in Color. It was a BFL (Bluefaced Leicester ) Silk combo, and I LOVE the feel of this finished object. What do you all think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Knitting!
