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!

Sweater fever :0

Guys. I have sweater fever. I just finished that sweater with the cables. I searched long and hard for the pattern I based my finished product off of and I found it! Its the Super Birthday Sweater. Its my favorite raglan sweater pattern by far because its so easy to make adjustments. Look it up on ravelry!

Anyways, about my sweater fever. My mom wants a sweater now so I am working on one for her. Then I will want one! This is going to be insane. I’m gonna be a super grandma at the age of 20 and I don’t even care. Here’s the start of my moms sweater. She wants a turtleneck which is a change to the pattern. I’m also gonna delete waist shaping. I’m excited! Its her anniversary present!

Redheart sweater! Woot!

Yup! I tried to get my dad to give me an idea of what he would like and he shrugged. I think men are impossible to knit for. My dad doesn’t do hats so that won’t work. I’ll just make him a nice sandwich 😛

I also want to make myself a cute skirt. That is on my list too. And I have three hat orders I should totally start……

FO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow I have done a terrible job at keeping up with finished objects!! I am so sorry. However, I just wanted to post my finished sweater!

My baby

Here’s the beauty! Where’s my humility. Gah!! It took me two months to complete. Thankfully, the customer was patient and she positively loved it. I tried it on and I was so very scared about it. It looked so terrible on me! But somehow, she tried it on and it was perfect! Which was bizarre because we seem so close in body type! Whatever. She loves it. I’m done. New super long project time baby!!!!!!!
