It’s been in the garage for many months now, with loads of stuff piled on top so I cannot get to it. It’s why I’ve been going off my yarn diet. :o)
Yup, every week for the last three I’ve bought yarn, either in person or online. AND I bought a couple of books and a couple of magazines. SEE? I *told* you I’ve been a bad monkey!
But there has been knitting too. I KNOW! Actual knitting content here -too amazing!
The Spare Baby Blanket is done.
Made out of Caron’s SPA yarn.
I won’t buy this yarn again ever: way, way WAY too splitty. Truly, it is amazing that the blanket looks as good as it does, this yarn splits so badly. I don’t think I can give this blanket as a gift to a friend; it’s just not up to snuff. I’ll probably give it to the Salvation Army or sell it in our yard sale….if that event ever takes place. I may even THROW away the rest of the yarn. I know – I’ll give it to the Force of Nature as “string”. Ah, yes – that’s the solution. I’ll have to cast on another spare Baby blankie soon…..
Next up, the Big Kahuna Shrug.
First, Boris is the model:
And then I am:
Made out of some Wal-Mart crochet cotton.
Once I had the chart for this, it went very fast. Comfy to wear, throw it in the washing machine easy, & it covers the “Bingo wings” . You should definitely make one. Thanks to the Force of Nature for taking the pictures.
I’ll do stash enhancement pics tomorrow/later, but I wanna show you just one more FO:
Made out of Classic Elite Yarns MountainTop Vail – double stranded.
This is a beautiful yarn – alpaca and bamboo – lightweight and WARM! I’ll find something else to make out of this – a lovely knitting experience. AND he has actually worn it – TWICE.
I will be making several more hats in the coming weeks: the Duke of Curl has shorn off his mountain of blue hair, and now that it’s getting chilly, his ginormous head gets cold. What else can I do?
