January’s FO’s

January, where did you go? How is it already February?
January FO
This month I completed three sweaters and am already 3/4 of the way finished with a 4th sweater.

  • My Trail Jacket: I haven’t taken pics or blogged about this one yet (hence the bathroom selfie) but I’ve worn it 4 times since I finished it. I love this piece and surprise, surprise…it’s a neutral!
  • Safia’s sweater: It’s becoming an annual thing that my first finished object of the year goes to my cousin.
  • My Happy Little Sweater: Um…this is just sunshine and joy wrapped up into one cardigan.

Also I found it really amazing how many responses Karen from Fringe Association got on her post asking if people were sweater knitters or accessories knitters. Over 500+ comments and the majority of folks say they’re sweater knitter. I’m not alone, although after seeing a billion Find Your Fade Shawls I kind of want to join in on all the fun. LOL Also I saw this post last night on Instagram.
Rocky Road Cardigan

And now I’m obsessed with the Rocky Road cardigan and want to make one for myself in the medium length. I have enough yarn in various colors but I might actually make it a neutral and use the camel colored yarn from my frogged Flaum cardigan. I think this might be a good coat to wear into spring. So what did you accomplish last month and what are you hoping to accomplish this month?

December’s FO’s

Happy New Year!
December's FO's
It’s my first post in January and that means I’m summing up what I finished in the month of December. And there are a few things in this batch that you haven’t seen yet!

I’ve got a hectic 2 weeks ahead of me but I’m planing on doing a wrap-up of my year of 2016 knitting and I’ve got some good finished objects to share! Happy New Year!

November’s FO’s

You guys…IT’S DECEMBER?! I cannot believe that this year is almost over. I’m kind of still in denial about everything. But it’s the first post of the new month and that means I’m rounding up everything I made in November and I was surprised at how many small projects I was able to complete. Several I have yet to give full details on. Posts coming on those projects soon.
November FO\

    • My Entwine Cowl. I decided I didn’t want the fringe version scarf from Within and instead decided to make it a cowl. I can wrap this baby around my neck 3 times for ultimate warmth and coziness. Post coming soon.
    • Sister sweaters. Super sweet sweaters for a baby shower.
    • Cher’s holiday photo sweater. I’ve just completely given in to the fact that I am indeed a crazy dog lady and I make sweaters for my dogs.
    • My Under the Graffiti Bridge cardigan. I cannot tell you how much I love this sweater and the modifications I made to the sleeves. Also this yarn is magic.
    • My Fidra hat. I’ve been on a hat binge…
    • A slouchy gray hat for my cousin from a beloved pattern.
    • My husband’s ultimate Giants fan hat. There’s a story behind how this hat came to be and I can’t wait to share. Plus my husband absolutely loves it.
    • My super bright green slouchy hat I lovingly refer to as the green monster and the cobalt blue cowl that I’ll share the pattern for next week. It’s super quick and you’ve probably done it before.

I've decided I will not let this election keep me down and I refuse to let it hold me back. I am listening to what @hillaryclinton said because it applies to all of us, 'Never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and oppo

  • Non knitting related, I made my Hillary tshirt. You can get 10% off your order through December 5 with code Christmas16. I’ve had a couple people order and receive their shirts already! Man, I’m still sad about this election.

I jammed a lot of knitting into November. I think it was due to stress. And I just finished off another small project last night – so I’ve got lots to share over the next few weeks while I plug away at Christmas knitting. What have you accomplished in the last month? Share!
