April 2018 Finished Objects

Hello, May! It’s time to look back at what I was able to finish in April. Volume wise isn’t huge but accomplishment wise I feel great!
April’s FO’s
So here’s what I was able to finish:

  • My Tecumseh for spring: This was my very first colorwork project and I couldn’t be prouder. Now I want to make all the colorwork sweaters but I think I’m finally going to cast on the Durumi sweater and make it short sleeved.
  • My pastel Madness Hat: I think this just might be the year of colorwork and brioche for me. I’m obsessed with it.
  • Safia’s Brio-Garter Hat: My cousin wanted a slouchy hat and I decided she needed something with earflaps to keep out the Chicago wind and cold. This was a total winner.

And thanks to everyone with recommendations for shawls and hats. I’ve been favoriting a few things on Ravelry and plotting out what to make next. I looked back at my finished objects for this year and so far I’ve made 8 adult sized hats and 2 baby sized hats. Perhaps I’m going back to my comfort zone and going to knit a billion hats by the end of 2018!


March 2018 Finished Objects

March FO’s
Welcome to April! And with the beginning of a new month I like to recap was I was able to finish in the last month.

  • Mom’s Blueberry Oatmeal sweater. I still love, love, love the saturated color of this blue. In fact 3 of this month’s projects were knit wit Periwinkle Sheep Yarn Intent aran/bulky weight!
  • A Rye tie. My friend Ayo sent me a selfie wearing his tie at Easter service. I’m so glad he loves his gift.
  • My Carbeth Cardigan. It’s bright and springy even if the weather isn’t.
  • A Dog sweater. Unfortunately this dog still needs a sweater with the crazy weather we’re having right now.
  • My spring test knit. I’m itching to wear this one but it just won’t warm up!
  • Another Carbeth! And on Saturday I finished and blocked the Carbeth for my cousin. More pics to come.

So I was able to accomplish a lot last month, what about you?

February 2018 Finished Objects

February FOs

Despite not feeling like I was accomplishing a lot, apparently I was. I finished 10 small objects this month, some you still haven’t seen yet. So let’s do a recap:

  • A Bandana Cowl for Alexandra. I’ve already made 2 and have plans to make another.
  • A Preppy Cowl. More brioche! And this one was inspired by a hat my friend was wearing so I made her a cowl to coordinate!
  • A Quick Knit for Salina. I really love this bulky knit cap and can totally see making more with chunky leftovers.
  • My Wakanda Set. If you haven’t seen the movie Black Panther, you should. There is so much color and amazingness, so I knit a set inspired by that. More on that next week.
  • Big Brioche. More brioche, there’s never enough!
  • Fiona’s Hat. Dipping my toe into making my own charts!
  • Brioche With a Touch of Sparkle. I love this hat for spring so much.
  • Tiny Hoodie. My friend sent me pics of his son in this hoodie and he’s just too cute.
  • The Purple Hat. I love this pattern so much and love this yarn even more.

So what were you able to accomplish this month?
