Monday was one of those days. I was doing pretty good, rolling along with my Monday. I went to work on the Nice and Knit Beanie and my circular needle broke in mid round. I calmly set aside this project, vowing to avoid yarn purchases when I purchase a new one. I was a little irritated as I struggle with most of my hats. It doesn’t help that because I have issues with them, I only make them to order, so they HAVE to be a certain size. I tend to have better luck when knitting, so that’s what I want with on this project.
Next I started working on the Crochet Island Play Set– trying so very, very hard to use up my stash, I prayed my two blues would be close enough. Having lost their labels ages ago, I had no way to tell. Honestly, they are so very close! Just not close enough, or so I thought, after doing a round I asked a few people to help me find the join, and no one could. I have finished the base, but now need to work on the island and creatures for this set.
I couldn’t help myself when I picked up my new circular needle… I bought yarn for ONE Campfire Blanket Scarf. I would eventually like to make 4-5 of these for when we have fires at our house, head to someone else’s fire, or are camping. Most of the time my kids are asking if they can have whatever I am making (for someone else or for the etsy shop) and I have to tell them no- I’m looking forward to making something specifically for them, just because.
What projects are you working on? What are your current favorite colors/yarns?
