I ended up doing two projects for the cowlalong. This is the Etched Ice Cowl. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on it too. So I’m filing this away for future gifts.
I actually did this project back in December, but hadn’t had a chance to get any photos taken. I did post an instagram of it with the cell phone pictures, but figured it was time to take better ones. This was a pattern that comes with all three minions (there is also Stew and Bob). Unfortunately, the pattern has disappeared (I picked it up on etsy). I still have the other two to make, so we’ll see if I get to them in time. The most time consuming part was assembly =/
After I made the Beau a Deadpool doll for his birthday last year, he asked me to do a Mega Man. So I did. The head is a little funky and I don’t like that it doesn’t seem to have extra support for the head, but it was a rather easy doll to put together and it didn’t really take that long to do either.
So things seem to have transferred right. I wanted to give it a few days before continuing to post projects up, so now to get back to my regularly scheduled posts…
This is part of a cowlorama along that I’m continuing to do as part of Voie de Vie’s five years of design celebration. This was super simple and quick to work up because of the thicker yarn used and the larger stitches. I thoroughly enjoyed this project.
This is the first a-long that will be going on, I think, all year. I had some fun with this pattern and knew I wanted to make it one of my first patterns to do in Voie de Vie‘s newest pattern book Fait le Main.
This was actually my first broomstick lace project. I really like the look, but I’m not sure if I could do this for a bigger project. It was kind of tedious balancing the knitting needle with the crochet hook. And I couldn’t move as fast as I usually do with learning the new technique. It definitely can add that extra “aw” factor if a pattern needed another pop to it. So I’m glad to have the technique in my back pocket.
I’m slowly trying to catch up with posting projects here. This was a commission project for a friend looking for a unique gift for a baby shower. Apparently the blanket was very much loved and I almost got a second project out of it. The pattern can be found here.
