Sorry so quiet lately. You know how it is…holiday parties, shopping, tattoos, CHRISTMAS, and now…bronchitis. Good times.
*cough cough cough hack hack hack*
Although I’m totally exhausted from my illness and my various prescription drug intake – I love me a Rx inhaler – I wanted to check in and let you know what I’ve been up to on the crafty front (more updates on other stuff coming up lattttter!)
First off, I made a cowl for my friend Junko for her birthday/Christmas/European adventure.
She’s special/super silly…
I love this cowl (pattern: Lyndhurst Cowl > my project: Aurora Borealis). So easy and I loved using the Lion Brand Amazing yarn held double. The color feathering and coziness of it is, well, amazing. I really wanted to keep it. REALLY wanted to keep it. But, alas, it was promised to Junko, so off to Germany and Austria it went!
Next I realized I was over my hands freezing when walking my cute little fur love. Therefore, fingerless mitts had to happen. Enter the Half-A-Skein-And-Two-Hours Mitts (my project: Pinktacular Mitts)!
Yes. Very pink. Verrrry pink. But seriously, I don’t even care. It’s been freakin’ cold here in Los Angeles lately (it was 44 degrees earlier today!). Apparently we are suffering from this thing called “winter”. Lame. #freezingmyassoff
Can I stray any further off my Year of Projects list? YES I CAN!
I’ve also been working on a new hat with the coolest construction. Two words for you: flat and parallelogram.
This next pattern wasn’t originally on my YOP list, but it is now (so there!). I realized/decided that I needed a worsted weight lacey crocheted shawl…I realized/decided this when I came across Dory.
I love the colors. Love the colors. The colors! I so can’t wait to finish this. I’ve finished the edging since I’ve taken the above picture and I only have the weaving of ends and blocking left. Hopefully, now that I’m all doped up on the good Rx stuff, I will feel better over the next couple of days and be able to wrap this up (my project: Citronnelle).
So there you have it! My crafty adventures for the month of December! Woot woot wo-cough cough cough hack hack sniff…woot.
