More Current Projects

hat This is the Sock Head Hat that I am working on. Its a slouchy hat made out of sock yarn. I choose to make this hat because I love a lot of sock yarn but I haven't really been that good at making socks. They always take me forever and then I never want to make the 2nd sock.

I am liking this hat so far but it is a little tight. I should have cast on more stitches. When I am finished I am going to block it and that should help because its is only a little tight. 

The yarn is Pagewood Farm Denali Hand Dyed Sock Yarn in the colorway Grapejuice. I really like the purple and pinks. The two main things I am knitting right now are purple and pink.

Right now I am knitting a huge thing. A huge knitted puff. A huge knitted puff made out of Tarn. Tarn is yarn made from t-shirts in case you didn't know. Here is my huge knitted puff knitted out of tarn.

I am making this out of purple, black, and pink t-shirts. Every stripe is a different t-shirt.

It still has a ways to go because it is suppose to be 70 inches long.

When I finally reach 70 inches I will sew the short sides together then cinch up to the top and bottom and stuff it with a duvet.
I am hoping my duvet will be big enough but we will see.

I am also going to need more shirts. I bought some over the weekend thinking that would be enough but they are not going to be.

I am also worried it might be to heavy. Its getting heavy already.

Even if it is big and heavy I think it is going to be awesome!

Carabiner

I have little hooks hidden in places for my knitting project bags. I use a carabiner on my bags when the handles are to wide or are really long.

This one I made out  MeiMei Bamboo yarn in this lovely blue color and that was for a swap on Craftster.org

Then....

I made all of these for another swap on Craftster. I have all the yarn info on my Raverly page is your interested to know what I used. Only 5 hats but probably over 10 yarns because I put a lot of them together to make the hats more interesting.

One thing I love to do is a simple pattern with an amazing yarn. I think that some yarns stand so well on there own that if you put them with a crazy pattern it will all be muddled and you'll loose the yarn and the pattern.

And then...Another hat but I different pattern this time!

I loved everything about this hat! The patter the colors everything but I made it for another swap lol. So I think I need to get more of this yarn and make one for myself because I luvre it. The yarn is Knit Picks Chroma Worsted in Lollipop. It took more than one skein of it to make this hat but I also made 3 pompoms because I didn't like how one of them turned out. The pattern is I ❤ pompoms. I found it on Ravelry but I'm not sure if the designer has it anywhere else. I wasn't able to find any links to a site or blog. But you can find it here I ❤ pompoms
 
Lastly I have made something other than hats I made one sock. lol It went pretty fast for me. Usually it takes me a year to knit socks but probably because I don't knit on them enough and then wait months until starting the second one. So hopefully these will not be my socks of 2012.

The yarn is Shibui Knits Sock in Spectrum. I've had this yarn in my stash for a long time because I loved it and was waiting to use it until I was better at knitting. The pattern is the ever so popular Jaywalker by Grumperina. You can find this pattern and more by her here. http://www.grumperina.com/knitblog/   
 
Hey if you like comics here is a rage comic that I made featuring my pug Lulu.

Lulu is the cutest pug in the would this Link will prove it. 

That is all for now might go to bed or I might knit more hats???

Back Knitting A Lot Again

I know its been awhile since I've wrote to you blog. I am so happy that you are still here when I am ready to talk again!

For awhile I hadn't been knitting that much because of school and lack of money. But my life has really settled down over the last year. I've moved and have a new steady job. Which also means steady pay checks to spend on yarn.

I have been knitting a lot lately for Christmas I knit 7 or 8 hats for my friends and family but I didn't take pictures of them.

After Christmas I've still been knitting hats. This one I made for my sister and let her pick out the yarn because she didn't seem to like the one I knit her for Christmas

This hat was made out of Berroco Vintage DK and Lucci Yarn Sequins. The Berroco was great the Sequins not so much. It is full size regular sharp sequins. Not so Fun to knit with.

This pattern is the Slouched Tuva Hat. I really Like this pattern. I like it so much I have made a total of 6 of these hats 2 for myself and the rest for friends. I'm not going to post pictures of all of them because most of them are on my Raverly page. But this is one I made for myself and I love it.
  
I love this hat. I made it in my favorite colors
purple and green.
