My project today. Not knitting but ohhh look yarn! This is my rocking horse that has been handed down to my daughter. But the original mane and tail got absolutely gross.. It was an antique rocking horse more than 20 years ago, I’m not surprised. So with the help of my husband I removed the old mane, and replaced it with this fun pink and purple one. I’ll post more pictures of it finished tail and all soon.
Finished! These beautiful memory unicorns for some very sweet girls. These got a little tedious. Turns out I hate making the same thing three times! But it was worth it! Free pattern found here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hermione-the-unicorn
Blocking this beauty. Blocking it made it way larger than I thought it was when I cast off. And a bit of steam seems to have helped soften up the cotton.
Working on another cloak for my little munchkin. Weird crochet provisional cast on.
Started this Saturday. And now how big it is. Garter stitch works up so fast. Even if I don’t love it like I love stockinette. But I think this will be pretty when it’s off the needles. The yarn is cascade sunseeker.
Finished ridiculous giant knit key. Because of reasons? Took about two hours to finish. I found the free pattern on ravelry.
Earlier today I got to work at our local yarn shop Two Rivers yarn. Just as a one time thing. But boy did I enjoy it! Sitting alone with all the yarn. And then selling yarn to people was the best. If you are in Maryland you really should check out Two Rivers yarn in Brunswick MD. Its such a friendly little shop with awesome selection. I got to squish it all today. Fabulous day.
Finally off the needles! I learned I do not like cuff down socks. I also week only do a short row heel… But I wanted to learn how to do another type of heel. So I did. I don’t like it. I totally love the pattern though so I will cover it to toe up if I make them again. Link to free pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tadpoles
Two down one to go. This is officially boring…. Oh well. They sure are are cute.
A basket to hold my projects! How pretty. Also a unicorn I’m working on. I’m making three as a commission, so one down two to go..
