Finished Projects

Not sure which is more fun for me; finishing projects or starting new ones?   I’m thinking the finishing is more fun, as it is a certainty.  The project is done.  I love the detail work at the end of a knitted or crocheted piece.  And, a slot on my mental list of projects is magically opened up!

When starting a new project, I tend to go through a few false starts.  Often starting with the yarn I want to use….then, deciding what I would like to “see” the yarn become…..and finding an existing pattern, or creating from my head…..   Not an easy task for me.  I think I start at least a couple times for each time I truly get a project out of the fiddling around stage.  

Here’s a crocheted cowl that has been stuck at the finish line for months.  Stuck on the buttons.  These plain creme colored ones finally passed muster and I can say the cowl is DONE.  

Lacy, open work, crocheted cowl in creme and rose.

Trying to add to the shop before the holiday shopping season, my hope is to have a range of colors of these boot cuffs.  Knit with a ribbed design, one size does fit most!

Wear just inside the boot, or folded over like this....they add a layered look without wearing heavy socks.

On the needles:  

     My ever present pair of socks for me.  Still on Sock #1…..almost to the ball of the foot.  My things take a back seat when it comes to projects

     Always, but always have a Mary Poppins inspired scarf on the needles.  Who knew this would be my best seller in the shop? 

     Crocheted hat in winter white;  Still on the crown area,  Need to work on this when I’m not visiting with someone….at least until I get the increases done!

      Crocheted baby blanket using the Blackberry Salad pattern.  Slow go, due to the all over bobble design

Summer Schedule = Completed Projects

I’m just settling into my summer schedule here, and sure enough, it’s almost over!  Just 7 more days of foster kiddos summer work experience…..which means just 7 more days of being out of the house at 6:20AM to get him to the bus stop and the reverse at 6PM for the pick up.  

The plus side of the schedule change has been the ‘found’ time while waiting for said kiddo.  

Three shades of Gray:  Crocheted Cowl, finished, and ready to add to my Etsy shop today.

Off the Hook at Stitchknit

Crochet scarf from Stitchknit

Love the color…………a blend of almost pink, a touch of gray and orchid.

Love the yarn…………acrylic, soft, with a bit of a halo effect

Love the pattern…………easy to remember, don’t have to concentrate on just my crocheting

Off the Needles

Off the needles, blocked and waiting for buttons!

Off the needles, blocked and waiting for buttons!

I thought I had just the right buttons for this…….but no.  I need something with more personality.  So, this goes in my bag of items that need something that isn’t in the studio here at Stitchknit.  The bag that needs to go to the store.  This poses a difficulty, in that I truly do hate shopping.

And, this………….it too needs buttons.  Nothing in the box of hundreds and hundreds of new buttons……..or the huge box of vintage buttons will work.  Love vintage buttons, but when the design needs 4, of course……..I can only locate things I like that come with just 3!

crocheted button up cowl by stitchknitThis is truly a tough one to get a picture of.  The yarn is a blend of wool and rayon and has the prettiest shimmer to it.

Off the hook here, just waiting for ends, then the border.

This is like the blanket listed here in the shop.  I love this diagonal design.  Easy to remember, great for projects on the go!
