3 Months of Washcloths, All Together Now… ;)

Hello again everyone! Since FOs #48, #50, &  #57 are all the same, I think I’m going to go ahead and bundle together 3 months worth of washcloths together.  If you do mind, it’s entirely too late to say anything now, so there… lol… 😉

September Washcloths

August Washcloths

July Washcloths

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyway, as I mentioned, these 3 FOs are all “Gramma’s Favorite Dishcloth” by PJ Allen. I use the same US 6 (4.0mm) 24-inch Marblz circs for each washcloth. I also have been using MANY different colorways of scraps. For a majority of the scraps, I’ve had them so long that I don’t have the actual label for them anymore.

But I’m loving the way each of these knit up. What do you think?

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Doctoring #47

Hello again everyone! FO #47 for  2019 is what I called “The Doctor Is The Answer.”

This is a project that I started back in April of 2017, and was intended to be knit during the Police Box MKAL. I honestly got to the last few sections, got far behind, and just gave up with keeping up to the clue release.  Stash Dash this year inspired me to finish some older WIPs.

I used Lorna’s Laces Sheperd Sock in the “Bigger On The Inside” and Spring Quintet “March 2017 Police Box.”

I LOVE how this project worked out in the end. What do you think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Say #46

Hello again everyone! Sorry it’s been a long while since I’ve come by to update my FO Parade posts. It’s been a fairly busy couple of months, which caused me to be behind on ALL of my postings. Again, sorry about that. With that in mind, let’s push on! FO #46 for 2019 is what I called “A Rey of Sunshine.”

This was the “Toe-Up Socks With A Difference” pattern by Wendy D. Johnson. I used size 2, 2.75mm needles and Patons Kroy “Greener Pastures.”

I believe that my intended Recipient will LOVE these socks. I’ll have to update you later… What do you think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

6/13:

I have an extensive list of WIPs, so making decisions on which ones I wanted to finish this year for Stash Dash was (and still is, if we’re being honest) a bit of an issue. I’m going include my CURRENT plan of attack.

 

 

As I am currently sitting at 13,966 yards or 12,770.6 meters at only 20 days into Stash Dash, I have gone ahead and thrown my hat into the “15K or above” goal marker on the Stash Dash forums.

5/18: I  can’t wait to get started this year! I’ll see you after the start of Stash Dash.

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

#45 Is Awesome!

Hello again everyone! We’re nearing the end of today’s FO parade, so YAY!!!  I called FO #45 “Infinitely Awesome.”

I used the Upstairs Downstairs: A Cowl in Three Sizes” pattern  by Paula Emons-Fuessle. I used Bernat Baby Sport in the “White” colorway and Hayfield Baby Blossom DK “366” colorway. This got me 500 yards for Stash Dash. I REALLY love the way the variegated colorway played with the cowl pattern. What do you think?

 

Thanks for reading all my FO posts. I know there were a few things I finished over the past month or so… My updated Stash Dash post should be posted sometime later today…

Until Next Time!

#44’s The Happiest! :)

Hello again everyone!!! FO #44 is what I called “Hermione’s Happiest Secret.”

These were my July’s (Desert Vista Dyeworks) DVD socks. I used “The Happiest Place On Earth”. I also decided that I was going to mix two different patterns. The first was “Hermione’s Secret” pattern by Kat Johnson, and the second was “Vanilla Is The New Black” by Anneh Fletcher. I REALLY love how well the stripy sequence of the yarn plays with these two patterns. The heel from the second pattern fits my heel better than the one written into the first pattern.

What do you think?

 

Until Next Time!

#43 is MFM’s Turn!!!

Hello again! I called FO #43 “SSDGM & F’Politeness.”

This project was part of the “My Favorite Murder Mystery KAL” using the pattern name of the same name. I used Suburban Stitcher Sock’s “Triflers Need Not Apply” colorway.

I had SOOO much fun with this MKAL I really love the way the colorway plays with the patterning. I only wish my photography skills are better so I can show off JavaPurl’s wonderful genius.  What do you think?

 

Until Next Time!
