Weekly Dose of Crafts!

This week I'm going all iphone pictures, sorry! 

Last week I got the newest issue of Crochet Today! At first glance I thought the Love Bugs were cute but didn't even realize they were Ladybugs. When I did I decided I must make one for a Christmas present. I hadn't made an amigurumi in months so it was a lot of fun and a heck of a lot faster than I remembered, I made it in a few hours one night!


Yarn used:
Vanna's Choice
Scarlett
Black

Last week I finished my second (and third!) sock. This is the Ladybug sock in the sport weight. Can you tell I like ladybugs?


Between all these longer projects its fun to throw up short projects, here is another one, a fish washcloth based on this pattern. I'm not sure how I liked how the shape was formed with drawing the stitches together, it doesn't lay flat when you do that. 


Yarn used:
Sugar'n Creme
Hot Green
White

And finally over the weekend I finished my second worsted weight sock and I have a real honest to gosh pair of socks, well slipper type socks but still!


I decided it was time I try what I consider a real sock in fingering weight yarn. It is going a lot faster than I thought it would with such thin yarn and I'm actually about the turn the heel so I'm a lot further than this picture shows.


Yarn used:
Berroco Comfort Sock 1818

I also got some yarn in the mail this week that I ordered last week during Cyber Monday and a Holiday Sale on Tuesday. Last Tuesday I was on the hunt for some more of Red Heart's Shimmer, the local stores that usually carry it were out and I needed some ASAP to finish some presents so I took the chance to order online directly from Red Heart. I also got a few of their other yarns that aren't currently carried in store!


My family (in particular) my mom keeps asking if every sock I make is for her so I finally let them pick out some yarn so I could make them some socks! Luckily the Felici was on sale so I got that and a few other things in the Knit Picks Cyber Monday Sale. By the way, who doesn't love Felici? I'm seriously obsessed I think I'm going to buy some more....


And finally there is only one week left in the Mystery KAL I'm participating in! I'm definitely thinking it's a capelet! 


For more crafty goodness be sure to stop over at WIP Wednesday! And find me on Raverly as mint910.
