How could I resist adding just a few new projects as I complete the previous ones on the list? I just can’t avoid those tempting skeins of yarn calling me from hither and yon and begging to be made into something lovely and fantastic. (and yes, they do call me…from my yarn cubes, from my various baskets and bags, from the yarn stores…you name it, they call me, lol! I should probably be committed, I know.)
I have updated my Progress Bar to show a couple of new items that I really want to complete:
- The 25th Street Stole by Jenny Stark, which I am making into a fluffy and textured scarf by using only 18 pegs of the blue round KK loom and some of my very own girly’s hand spun thick and thin yarn. This project is a pure delight, let me tell you! It’s a super easy pattern to follow and an excellent yarn to play with…a winning combination! 🙂
- Blanket Sweater! This is a new project I’ve been having fun with and hope to have it all done by Christmas. This is going to be a bit of a challenge, as it is a pretty large project. I’m a glutton for punishment. I estimate it is going to require 19 skeins of Hometown USA by Lion Brand. Yikes! Wish me luck.
I have removed the scarf sets (and Koby) as I am now calling them done. Yay! I haven’t shown much in the way of progress in the losing weight progress bar because, well… I have to be honest. I’m not really going to be serious about that goal until the holidays are over, lol! I have lost 4 lbs since starting, though…that’s a little something, right? 😉
I did complete an additional eensy-weensy little rush order for a new friend of mine. He’s a retired and recovering injured Marine and is learning to needle knit as part of his recovery. Isn’t that cool? His friend and therapist who taught him how to knit is having her first grand-baby and so he asked if I could whip something up in a hurry to be able to give a hand crafted piece of baby goodness. How could I say no to that? I grabbed my red round KK loom and my little KK flower loom and made him some adorable ‘lil Rome-ettes (a more lacy version of Romeo’s, lol) and a sweet Pom Pom Hat, all in one evening! 🙂 I just love how they turned out, don’t you?
Here’s a slideshow of all the loomy loot… the finished items as well as the progress of the ones I’m currently and diligently working on. Hope you enjoy!
What’s been hanging out on your looms lately, as you count down the days to Christmas?
