Great swamp

okay i am a swap on Ravelry in a completely pointless and arbitrary group (CPaAG.) Well CPaAG has swap every so months and this it was to make a big surpise ball of goodness. I went overboard on the yarn since my swappie Yarngasm ( love the name BTW) (Amanda). Likes thicker yarn so i raid my stash and thicker yarns i have dyed and decided be a little evil by putting homespun on the outside :P.  It was great to see she loved all the stuff in the package (snerk). I really liked that she post the whole destruction of  ball of yarn on her blog. There still more cool things coming to Amanda today. Cant wait for her to see the stuff i designed just for her.

i had to add one picture from her blog


Springtree Road Handspun Yarn

Hi guys its been forever since i posted i have been knitting a lot lately finished 2 project with  Maya from Springtree Road Handspun Yarn. The first project i did with her yarn was a twisted cowl made in Maya and Alecia (Madbird) September KAL

And here the last one from the KAL the finished cowl on me

Than i made a slouchy hat in 2 different yarns from Maya it Fortress and Kohl.

Maya handspun yarn was great to knit with i cant wait to find the next yarn of hers that i want to make a knitwear with 🙂 I going talk to Maya tomorrow to see i can add some picture she took of all 3 yarns i used in these 2 projects.


Rainbow fingerless mitts

Friday i got my yarn from Play at Life Fiber. When i saw the Jest Aran Maki yarn in Bright Rainbow, i had to put down the baby blanket and crochet some fingerless mitt/gloves. I found Quick Crochet Skinny Mitts by Christa Casebeer. Which i kinda tweaked to fit what i wanted in my mitts. I keep repeating Row 2 whenever the yarn changed color, i wanted more texture in the  mitts too so i changed rows in the middle i did DC, HDC, DC. Well that good paragraph talking about them let me show them to you.

After taking these picture i notice that i  have it inside-out so i flipped correctly i take picture of that later i did take a picture when i made it to the orange ( which below) but i frogged back to the green because i didnt like how the decreacing DC made the mitts fit my hand.

well off to crochet hope to finish the first one today or maybe both 😀

ProgressS18

here a progress bar for  season 18 scarf 😀


Doctor Who Scarf Part 2

Okay after going back and forth all night about which season 14 scarf i woulds actually make the one using Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted yarn or the Vanna’s Choice yarn. I finally decided to do the Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted. Since the color were closer to what i wanted. I have ordered all the color but chuck berry. Here the image with the color name for Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted yarn.

Update: Just bought 5 skeins of Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted Chuck Berry on ebay 🙂 so now i can make the scarf when all my yarn comes in 😀 so happy…. need to work on baby blanket more so i can start the scarf right when the yarn comes in.
