Time To Wrap Up #58

Hello again everyone! I know it’s been a Blog-tastic morning/afternoon. I promise FO #58 is the last one I’m going to report on. At least,  for a bit. I called this project “Bromance R’ Us.”

This project is also for someone for the Holidays, as well as part of my Arithmancy OWL for HPKCHC. This is the last pair of socks I finished in September. I used Knit Picks Hawthorne Kettle Dye in the “Cathedral Park” colorway, as well as Dream in Color Smooshy in the “Medieval” colorway on the Cuffs. I REALLY love the way that these colors play together. What do you all think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Keep Em’ Guessing #56…

Hello again everyone! A quick note. From here on out, all of the FO’s I do may be for someone else. What does this mean? Well, the title of the Project I come up with may be tied into WHO the item is for. So, I’ll be saying that this project was for someone for the Holidays, and let you guess from there…  This is also part of my Arithmancy OWL through the HPKCHC. Either way… FO number 56 I titled “Bromance.”

I ended up using 2 50 gram skeins of Patons Kroy “Turquoise Jacquard” and used a grey color from the same company for contrasting heels and cuffs. I REALLY love the way that this pair knit up. What do you think?

Falling For #55

Hey again everyone! FO 55 for 2019 is what I called “Falling For The Red Queen.”

I entered this shawl in MANY KALs. I initially started this one for the Joji Fall KAL that she does. However, this ended up being perfect for a class for the Harry Potter Knit & Crochet House Cup (HPKCHC) too. Which I LOVE!!!  I used Dream in Color Smooshy in the “Cinnamon Girl” and “Melon Bomb” colorways as well as “The Girl From The Grocery Store.” I absolutely LOVE the way that these colors play together. It was pretty hard to get a proper picture, but I persisted until I got the picture you see above. What do you all think?

#54

Hello again everyone! FO #54 for this year is what I called “September 2019 DVD Socks.” I know. Straight and right to the point. I have to admit that my naming skills for several projects in the month of September kind of went by the wayside… What can I say, September was a busy month for me. For various reasons I’m not going to get into here…

Anyway…

As with each pair of socks I use for the Desert Vista Dyeworks (DVD) Socks KAL, I used her Viso base. This month was “Stranger Things.”  Besides the DVD KAL, I am using this pair as part of my Arithmancy OWL in the Harry Potter Knit & Crochet House Cup (HPKCHC). My plan? To knit 9 pairs of the “Toe-Up Socks With A Difference” pattern by Wendy D. Johnson before the end of November. Crossing my fingers that I can finish earlier. But, we’ll see… I’ve made a pretty good showing for it. But, you’ll see how I did later..

I ended up knitting this pair in just under 7 days. I really do love the way the stripes came out, even if I was able to speed through the pattern. What do you all think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

#52

Hello again everyone! I called FO #52 simply “Blankie.”

It’s a simple blanket made 2 colors of Hayfield Blossom Blossom DK in the “Pretty Primrose” and “Play Patch” colorways and the “Gramma’s Favorite Dishcloth” pattern by PJ Allen.

I love how the colors play together. What do you think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

#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.

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

“I Don’t Give A Damn” About #49

Hello again everyone! FO #49 is my “August 2019’s DVD Socks.”

I used Desert Vista Dyeworks’ Viso base in the “Gone With The WInd” colorway (hence the title of this post.)  If you’re not familiar with the quote I used with the naming of this post, please do yourself a big favor and Google the term and watch the movie. You’ll thank me later…

I really LOVE the way that this colorway striped. What do you think?

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!
