End of January

This is a little late getting posted. I forgot that I had started this post so decided that I wanted to update everyone on what I am working on.

Off the Needles/Hook

I made the Unicorn Hat from Repeat Crafter Me as a custom order. It turned out wonderful.

I had another custom order for the Double Layered Braided Cowl by Crochet Dreamz. The pattern is constructed in an interesting way. I love the way it turned out. I can see making another one of these.

Next of the needles is the Atwood Shawl by Nikole Clark.  The yarn for the main part of the body is Madeline Tosh Merino Light in the colorway Betine. The edging is by Mango Moon Mulberry Meadow in the colorway Bark.

Work in Progress:

There is only one thing that I cast on this month. I am working on a Plain Vanilla Sock with the Fish Lips Kiss Heel. The yarn is String Theory Continuum Self Striping in the colorway Ultra Violet Catastrophe. I have never knit a pair of selfstriping socks before. I can see why they are so addictive. I have a hard time putting them down because I want to get to the next color.

On the Spinning Wheel:

I am currently spinning up this wonderful piece of heaven. It 60% Wool 20% Mohair and 20% Bamboo. It is such a wonderful spin. I plan on two plying it. Can’t wait to ply it and get it off the wheel.

Future Projects:

So one of my goals for this year is to knit/crochet up the patterns that I have purchased. So I printed off the patterns and pulled the yarn for them. Hopefully this will help me get them done.
