Current Works from my hook & needles

I haven’t been sitting idle here!  Although, doing way too much sitting!    Lots of waiting time, which is never a problem, but an opportunity for me to keep my hands busy.

Here’s a couple of my current projects:

Crocheted baby blanket. Started as a sample for a crochet class here at Stitchknit.  Loved the look, so am going to finish it up and get it in the shop.

Love cables~  This scarf is a popular one in my local shop, as well as on Etsy. Seem to have one of these on the needles most of the time!

Next project?  Hoping to get some sewing time, to create some fabric scarves for the Etsy shop.  Have a large stack of fabrics ‘auditioning’ for a spot!

Mysterious Disappearances

That’s what we call things that just seem to ‘walk away’ from where anyone had seen them last.  

Mysterious Disappearances 

The latest mia is a scarf I knit during the last Olympics.  (can’t even remember if it was Summer or Winter)  I do know the scarf exists and was totally finished, and even snapped a couple pictures…..

Bobble Scarf by Stitchknit

This piece was supposed to be listed in my Etsy shop before the holidays….but, I have still not found where I put it for safe keeping.  Such fun to knit, huge bobbles and a gorgeous sangria red.  

Anyone else have things that seem to have vanished into thin air??

 

Off the Hook (and the needles)

I had some comments about a recent post, where I mentioned one couldn’t have too many projects going at once.  Just so you know………I’m equally as jazzed about finishing projects as starting them!  Here’s a couple that are waiting in line for “real pictures”…..

Love this color....I call it electric fuchsia!

Love this pattern, it seems to make up so fast. Perfect take along project too.

So, this means I get to start a couple more new things, right??

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!

A whole cone of vintage mohair yarn!  Fiber heaven!  Royal & Navy together, with a strand of black nylon throughout.  Very sharp looking.

I've been searching for holiday fabrics to add to the shop in July.  These are 'finds' from the last sale I attended.

Add these supplies to the huge box of un cut vintage patterns I just brought home, and the shop is going to be stuffed full by July!  Rescuing sewing & knitting supplies is almost as fun as sewing & knitting!

No new pics for other works in progress.  I’m one of those knitters/crocheters who has multiple projects in the works at the same time.

*  Have a pair of multi colored socks on the needles that just stay in the van, for those times when I’m waiting for someone.

*   Still crocheting away on the modern striped baby blanket in 2 shades of gray and a pop of bright red. Loving this one, but it is getting too big to haul around.  Now an at home sort of project

*  Mary Poppins pork pie style straw hat……..took out a row or two, as I’m making this up from the pictures from the movie.  Raffia was stretching out too much. Definitely an in the studio type project, as I’m writing the pattern as I go.

*  Knit baby hat in soft blue, a great take anywhere project. Aiming to make up several of these in different colors.

*  Black & white cotton knit scarf.  Done but the fringe.  So, technically not done at all.  Seem to have projects in this basket all the time.  Done:  But needing something!

Actually, that doesn’t seem like much at all.  Should go match up a few more patterns with some yarn!  :)
