Knitting Update

Here are the latest projects. I always have something on the needles. Although I am a person who fully finishes a project before moving onto the next--no half finished projects lying around for me. I'm weird that way. I have a hat I'm working on right now that HAS to be finished soon so I can move onto my Halloween costume knitting. Updates on all that later...

Monster Chunk for Will
Pattern: Monster Chunks (free!) by Rebecca Danger
Needle Size: US 6
Yarn: Cascade 220 for the body, Lily Sugar n' Cream for the feet

I originally planned to knit a little bird for this new baby, but then I went to Target to buy a little outfit for him and you can see from the picture below why I HAD to do a Monster Chunk for him! How perfectly does this go with the shirt?

Coral India Scarf
Pattern: India Scarf by Ilga Leja
Needle: US 11 for CO and BO, body of the scarf was US 9
Yarn: Spa in Coral Lipstick

My first real lace pattern. The yarn is slippery and splitty and just plain hard to work with, but the finished scarf is amazing! It's soft and so pretty. I love it. It's supposed to be a summer scarf, but you couldn't pay me to wear a scarf in the summer in the Southwest! :) So this one is a Fall/Spring scarf for me.

Halloween Black Bird
Pattern: Lil Birdie by Carina Lee (FREE)
Needle: US 4
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft

I will definitely be making more of these little cuties! This pattern is great.

Crochet 3 Strand Headband
Pattern: Simple Crochet Headband (FREE)
Hook: G
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft

My crochet skills are very lacking, but this was still super quick and easy.

Wow, I so love the little monster and how adorable it is with the shirt!! Could that be any cuter?!? Love the headband. Way to go on crocheting. Impressive.

You're in the EBSQ Friday Five!

I love the little monster. Are those eyes hard to deal with? Where does one get such eyes?

Tif said...

The eyes are very easy to use. They are safety eyes and have a sort of locking mechanism inside. It would take a very persistent child to chew them off! :) I get them at Hobby Lobby in the doll making aisle. Hope that helps!
