Purple Rain!

I finally finished this hat and scarf set for a dear sister in my old English congregation. Done in a week!

Things are looking up! I’m just doing what I need to do and hoping for the best.

So knitting fun. I need to finish my mom’s sweater pictured below:

I just need to finish the ribbing and the sleeves! I can’t wait to be done. It’s based off the $5 Dollars in Paris pattern on Ravelry. This is a great versatile raglan sweater pattern.

And also, today is a Music Monday. Go listen to MNEK right now!

 

 

2015 Finished projects

So I totally meant to post my finished projects on Friday but I did not have time because I ended up at a partayyyyyy (yay). But I’m gonna post them here because I’m happy I have two new cowls! My seaming abilities are still terrible but they’re pretty easy to cover up with cowls so that’s alright. Here they are!

Twisted cowl!

Attractive, yes?

This is a twisted cowl I made from leftover wool/acrylic blend yarn. I made it a month ago and decided to sew it together yesterday.

Black and beige mixed print cowl!

This is another cowl I made a few weeks back that no needed to finish. I did such a terrible job with the finishing work but its not noticeable when the cowl is on. I love the mixed colors! I wanted to edit my fashion sense now that I’ve entered my twenties to be more trendy and girly and less tomboy/hipster-esque. And these are awesome pieces to start with!

I wear skirts and dresses a lot so I rarely have a reason to wear pants unless I’m bumming out. I want to kill the long granny skirts this year and wear more midi stuff this year. I need to go back to my boho and maxi skirt days!

And I’m working on some knit stuff for kids! Stay tuned my room will be filled with kiddie hats this week!
