Off the Needles/Hook
Box Stitch Baby Blanket by Make & Do Crew. Crocheted in Lion Brand Ferris Wheel in Wild Violets and Lion Brand Feels Like Butta in Charcoal. I used a J hook.
Mini Me MKAL by Cozy Up Knits in 2022 Advent Colors from Always Be Kind Yarn. I added two sections to the end to highlight the pinks in my set, so it is super big. I was worried that it was going to look like my "hunting shawl," but once I got past the green, it mellowed out a little.
Turtle Dove sweater by Espace Tricot, knit in Knit Picks Wonderfluff in Atlantic Heather. I love the yarn, and I was working to gauge, but the sleeves are a bit tight. It is definitely a tailored fit!
Habitation Throw by Helen Stewart - Curious Handmade - using my December Swap from Jen Study
CU Buffs Socks in Steampunk by Artistic Yarn by Abi. I started these for the Pigskin Party, then my team was awful, and I did a lot of gift socks, so these have languished.
Up Next: Finish It February
I have a slew of WIPS sitting around, so I think it is time to work on them! I hope not to be too distracted in February so that I can move on to more garments for the rest of the year!
Sassy Spirit Wrap by Megan Williams in lovely yarn from The Sheepyshire
My own slipper sock pattern in Lion Brand Thick and Quick. I have one finished in the lovely Hudson Bay inspired color, but never got around to the second one. These take like 90 minutes to knit up at most, and I just put them aside.
Granny Go Round Jumper - I have no idea if I even want to finish this at this point. I am going to get into it a little more, see if it still looks like a clown sweater, and finish or frog it.
On My Mind: So Many Big Projects!
Over the last few months I have really gotten into garments - I want to knit all of the sweaters. I am not sure if that's because I lost so many to moths last year or just that there are so many great sweaters out there! I have some patterns that are somewhat stuck in my brain, and I wish I could knit more just to get them done! I can't because I do have a day job and my elbow doesn't really like that. These are just a FEW of the patterns that are stuck in my brain!
Night Owl by Heidi May of The Velvet Acorn using Knit Picks Wonderfluff in Turquoise Heather. Yes, I made this a few months ago, and I would most definitely use the yarn again! Project Page or Ravelry post.
Bright Axis Tee by Tellybean Knits - honestly, I could knit a bunch of her stuff!
Pavement by Veera Valimaki using The Lemonade Shop in Toxic Oreo, and another using some Mudpunch tweed I picked up on sale, that I had no need to purchase!
Ranunculus by Midori Hirose in Carrie's Sweater by Get Knitfaced in Colorado
Tahoe Shawl by Get Knitfaced in Colorado in the sample colors, but I don't know what they are as I type this!
Weekender by Andrea Mowry in Lion Brand Jeans in Classic- and while I'm at it, I should mend the grey one I have.
Knit the good stuff, be nice to one another, and hey - relax a bit. Very few things in life are really worth getting that upset about. I promise.
