Last week, I finished both the Fair Isle Hat and the Cowl/hood. It didn’t take me too much longer to do either.
I’m glad to be done with that project. I started it back in September. Never expected it to take that long to finish.
I started making that Shimmer by Night bag, but ended up scrapping it yesterday. It called for some shimmery fine yarn, which I have never worked with before. I tried it out and it was almost as hard as knitting with super bulky yarn. plus I got it all knotted up when I was trying to find the center pull end and could not figure out how to unknot it. Ending up cutting out the knotted part, which seemed to be quite a bit of it. And at that point I just had no desire to continue. I may try it again at some point though.
I ended up starting a new baby bib instead of the coffee sleeve I was going to do. The design is by Elaine Fitzpatrick over at downcloverlaine.blogspot.com. I love her patterns. they always turn out really nice. This one is her Hay Baby Bib with a cow on it. I’m only about a quarter of the way through the main part of the bib right now.
I also started the next Cause hat even though I scrapped the last one because I didn’t like the way it was turning out. I also haven’t gotten too far on this one so no pictures yet. I do have the ribbing done and a little bit of the straight section. But there’s not much to show of it yet.
Nothing planned yet. I’ll figure it out when I get a little closer to finishing these two projects.
