    Another wool beanie for Warmth for Warriors.

    I've also made good progress on my bathrobe. All I need to do is sew in the sleeves and hem the bottom.

    Hello everyone!

    I am enjoying some craft time today - I have decided I need to rotate through my WIPs daily (a new one every day). Today - socks!!!

    What is on your “needles”?

      Good idea about rotating through them! I tend to forget some of them! I love the colors of these socks, and the design. What yarn is this?

    #79
    Hi, everyone - so today I am also finishing up a pair of socks, and thinking about starting another pair. I also have a knit shawl that’s a lace pattern, and a crochet baby blanket to finish.

    It’s a little warmer today. DH and I splurged and picked up a lunch meal from Applebee’s today 😊. I got out of the house and took my car for a ride this afternoon.

    I like Char's idea to rotate through WIPs.

      And can I just say...these socks really make me want to find some clear clogs.

      These are cool! Are they going to match or fade through different colors?

    • PurlgirlButtons

      Char, they are going to match because I made a double-stranded sock blank before dyeing it! I have a "toy" knitting machine and it made a very long tube, but worked quite well.

    Today’s WIP update: the spice market blanket! I’ll be steam blocking it before I proceed onto the next section. Just in case I can’t flatten it out. Eek!

    I have about 300 yards of ILTY left over from the Hobbii C2C. Found this cute shell stitch pattern on My Picot. Gonna see how far it will go.

      This fondly reminds me of something...
      Does anyone remember the crochet potholder vests of the 1970's?
      Loved them!

    Yesterday I found myself with all of my WIP'S completed and nothing to do!!! I delved into my patterns and stash and came up with a couple new projects:

    First one is a cowl, my first try at moebius, the pattern is "Victoria's Crochet Cowl". Yarn is hand dyed from "Yarn By The Bay", by our very own LizB!

    My second new WIP is a scarf, with cables and lace, called "Feel Pretty Scarf". Yarn is actually a dark celery color. Obviously not blocked. It has a 64 row repeat, one repeat completed.

    Well, I had a lot of time to my for crafting today, completed my cowl, and I had just enough yarn to whip up a crochet hat with the leftovers. Happy with the simple patterns that worked up quickly.

      It’s actually a pretty peach, hand dyed special for me by LizB, from her Etsy store, “Yarn By The Bay”

    I'm in a funk at the moment, I just can't get interested in anything to work on. So, I picked up this mystery yarn and decided to crochet a simple v-stitch scarf.

    The yarn is very bright, and too loosely spun to use for socks.

      Well, I did not like the pooling, and the scarf was too thin. I might try again later with some lace as a second strand. Frogged! 🐸

    So I didn't have enough leftovers for a baby blanket, but I'm sure the cats at the shelter will appreciate it!

    It's only 26" square.

    I wanted to thank you, TexasPurl for your most generous offer to us for one of your designs during this difficult time. I chose the baby blanket, "Autumns Past". Finally finished and blocked this beautiful design.
