Current Projects

I generally like to finish a project before a start a new one — barring large projects that I know I'm in for a million breaks. Lately, however, I've been developing a case of startitis. I keep adding projects on my hooks and needles, half of which I abandon halfway and frog.

Some of the ones that have made it to the cast-off stage on the knitting front:

This hat, for which I finally got to use my large-size pom-pom maker.
 
This hat was attempt number 123905^4 at making a flat-knit garter stitch hat, without a pattern. I'm getting close to the perfect size.


In crochet, I'm back at it with the dolls:
    
If you're a fan of a certain popular musical you'll recognize these sisters, and know that there's another one on her way.

This will hopefully turn into a shawl, but I'm on my last skein and the yarn is discontinued! #crochetproblems

  1. the hat looks so goo don you!! and the in progress projects are really coming along... have you thought of looking for the yarn that is discontinued on ravelry? You never know who has some in their stash. I got a single skein I needed to finish a sweater from someone that way. Check out the yarn on ravelry, then check who has it stashed. Then send them a message!

    1. Thank you so much!

      I actually hadn't thought of doing that. But I just checked on Ravelry and it looks like I'm the only one who stashed that colorway. I'll keep and eye out, and I might message someone with a solid that matches one of the colors. Thanks for the tip!
