Work in Progress Wednesday

So I haven’t done one of these posts in about a month now, but I’ve been so busy. I have done quiet a bit of crafting over the past few weeks though! And I went on vacation I have 2 of the cable square and 3 of the garter squares done for the Knit Your Cables KAL. I haven’t started the 3rd cable square yet but I will this week at some point. I’ve been taking breaks in between because I don’t want my hands to get sore. I have to knit the cables very tightly or else they stitches look really loose and I hate that. I’ve been working on another baby blanket for donation and I’m half way through it now. It’s been taking me awhile because the pattern is so boring! I’m doing sections of 5 rows for each color (white & purple). I do want to Read More

Well I’ve done a bit the past few weeks, but not too much. I’ve made good progress on Carla’s scarf: I haven’t worked on it in a week though XD I really need to get on that! I’ve started working on the Cable KAL that Red Heart is doing with Creativebug. I got week 1’s square done (well 1/10), and I’m currently working on week 2. It’s the first cable square I’ve ever done…and I really do not like cables now. The stitches are loose right after the cable work so it looks very messy to me. I know Jessica & Hev have both said it looks fine, even a patient at work said it looked ok. I’m just being anal & OCD about it. Here’s the first square: I decided to use the Cascade Pacific yarn that I have in my stash that was originally going to be used Read More

To-Do List & Christmas Craft To-Do List Updates

So I’ve been slacking a little bit on my crochet/knitting…and really it’s only because I’ve been addicted to reading again. I’ve added way more projects to my To-Do List than I can really handle but I figure the more stuff I have to keep myself busy the less time I have to think about things that bother me (which is really all my crafting & reading addiction are there for). Christmas Craft To-Do List Carla: scarf & toque – ALMOST done the scarf Hev: cardigan (link) Jessica: a few Calorimetry (link) Mom: purse & scarf (Buying the purse, making the scarf) Sister: afghan Dad: shirt & jeans (buying) Becca: no idea Heather: wallet from outlet mall Boss: something coffee related, possibly making an afghan for his wife & daughter Gift Exchanges: Going to make gift card holders and get Tim Hortons gift cards The girls: softies Regular Craft To-Do List Read More

I’ve only been working on Carla’s scarf this week and I’ve made a bit of progress! I started the green portion of it last night Hoping I can get this one done quick and finish the baby blankets so I can start the stitch-cation and KAL that I want to do. If I don’t have time I won’t be doing the stitch-cation afghan. I know I have the yarn for it but I can always just use it for baby hats for donation. Which is probably a better idea anyways.

So I’ve been working my butt off on these baby blankets and I’m so close to being finished the 3 of them!! So far I have 1 completed and the other 2 waiting for borders & weaving in the ends. I’ve also made some progress on Carla’s scarf I’m working on it while at work since it’s just straight knit stitches until I run out of yarn to knit with. I still have A LOT to do but I’m getting closer to finishing at least 1 project I promise to get better pictures of the baby blankets once they’re all done…

Fasten off Friday

0 comments

SO I haven’t done a WIP post in 2 weeks and I keep meaning to make one XD So instead this week it’s a Fasten off Friday! I’ve been so tired lately and my memory is complete crap so please bare with me On my last WIP post I posted the cowl I made for my friends birthday but it didn’t have the button on it. I finally got the buttons in the mail (actually it didn’t take long at all for the post!) and I have attached said button! I have finally finished my first knitted in the round project!! I am so proud of myself I did run out of yarn so I had to end it 8 rounds before the pattern actually ends but I think it still looks awesome. I do still need to block it but I’ve been too tired and lazy to do that. Read More

I know I know, sooo early for a Christmas post but I have decided that this year everyone is getting something home-made. I can’t afford to buy lots of gifts and I have TONS of yarn so I can make things instead. I already have ideas for some people, but for others I have no clue. I will be buying a few things for my family but that’s it. Carla: scarf & toque Hev: cardigan (unless she wants something else!) Jessica: no idea (Jess I need ideas :P) Mom: purse & scarf Sister: afghan Dad: shirt & jeans (buying) Becca: no idea Boss: something coffee related, possibly making an afghan for his wife & daughter Gift Exchanges: Going to make gift card holders and get Tim Hortons gift cards The girls: softies So far that’s all the ideas I have. I need to go through my yarn stash and delegate Read More

So this week I’ve actually gotten some things done!! I am all caught up with the BAM CAL and I made a birthday gift for a friend. I have also made some progress on my Pineapple CAL! I talked it over with my mom & sister and decided that I’m only making ONE pineapple afghan for Christmas because I just don’t have the time to make 2 this year. Next year I’ll either make another one or find a different afghan to make. Bam CAL June Square: Gift for friends birthday: I still need to add a button to the cuff but I’m waiting for it to come in the mail. I also tested a pattern for Jessica, and I really like it! Now hopefully I can get more of my projects caught up on!
