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.

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?


Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!
