I need more than one project at a time, lest I bore you all to tears with the Earwarmer update du jour.
I spent a lovely evening at my old haunt, the 4S branch of the San Diego County Library…
Caught up with old friends from the knitting group, including my first knitting teacher Allison and Jill who was also in that very first class. Some new people who have joined in after I moved away, and also got to see the library people i used to volunteer with so it was a great night.
we even had a few drop in to see what we were doing and stay to learn!!
Much progress was made on the Earwarmer, including some practice in ‘un-knitting’ when i realized my reversible colors had managed to switch places… i considered pretending i did it on purpose and calling it stripes but decided that would be cheating 🙂
I figure it is about 3/4 done… maybe only 1/2 I haven’t yet decided how big it is going to be… that is the beauty of something you make up yourself, YOU get to decide when it is done 😛
well, the earwarmer is still going strong, i am posting some pictures of the current status and some closeups with a little more detail.. let me know what you think 🙂
I think I am going to tackle this next, I need a dedicated craft bag, and what the hell.. why not make one 🙂
i found the pattern on Ravelry and it looks like it isn’t too complicated and looks very cool when all put together.
Between the holidays and being so sick I was pretty sure death was imminent, I didn’t get much of anything done and certainly no knitting or crocheting. So today in celebration of feeling SO much better and New Years Day I started a new project this afternoon after some internet research. A reversible earwarmer thinger. I am knitting on dpns with 2 colors
So….. my awesome crochet teacher, Dee, assures me that the hat does not hate me, and I am doing a fine job. perhaps my yarn is a bit thin and so perhaps it is taking longer than I might like, but it will be a fine hat when it is done. we discussed the addition of a pink heart thereby making it a Valentines Day hat rather than a Santa hat, I think that is more along my finishing time line 🙂
I only stayed a few minutes down at Jazi Crafts as I seem to be not feeling well this evening… just tired and stressed about the ceiling I think, no actual illness. I certainly hope not with Christmas just a few days away.
We have our tree up, but decorating will wait until Thursday night when we are all home at the same time. most of my shopping is done, I need to get some wrapping done. but I am otherwise ready for the holiday.
No really. This hat hates me. It seems the more I crochet the more I have left to crochet
this is my living room ceiling… the roofer can’t do anything about it until Thursday, and that is only if the rain has stopped… please stop rain, please…
This was a quick fun project we did in a class last week. a little scarf to keep your candy canes warm
branching out a little today. I made a bracelet with stampy stuff and beads.
I was a little heavy handed with the color on the backs so it bled through on some of them
thanks to Jazi Crafts & Genevieve Rodriguez
…and he is NOT going to have a hat because I am pretty sure I am NOT going to have it completed in time 🙂
I got more crocheting done last night at Jazi Crafts, but i still have a loooooonnnnggggg way to go
