Weekly Dose of Crafts!

Me and my camera got a little lazy today so I didn't take pictures of EVERYTHING I worked on. Such as, my mittens that were missing thumbs finally got thumbs and they turned out so fabulous I think I'm going to make another pair for a Christmas gift! I also worked on a few more pieces for the felted slippers, hopefully I will get felting on those sooner than later!

In Twinkie Chan's book she has this wonderful Gingerbread Man Scarf, for kicks I did the body for one and then though wow would this make the cutest pin ever? So yesterday I pulled out some sport weight and made him into a little pin gingerbread man. I think he turned out pretty cute and is part of a Christmas present for someone!


Yarn used:
Red Heart Designer Sport Latte


I got Part 2 of the Mystery KAL pattern on Thanksgiving so I tackled that over the weekend! I'm super exited to find out what it is, I'm thinking some kind of shawl or something!

Here is the finished hat for my sister. OMG I love how it turned out and I want it lol! I found the perfect buttons for it too. Even though I only had 1 ball I decided I must start a matching cowl and promptly ran out of yarn (and then those mittens and then another scarf-yes I got carried away with my plans) but found out the RH Shimmer is sold out locally. :/ So I made a purchase from the Red Heart website last night. Oops. I swear I didn't plan this!


The ladybug sock is going great too! I think in a few days it will be done. I also started the matching worsted weight sock to match the one I finished last week. My sock is going to continue for at least a few more weeks!


Last week Borders had some great 50% coupons, I didn't have any ideas of what I wanted to buy so I just went and took a peek and decided to try some of the Yarn Harlot's books. I'm really enjoying her Casts Off book. Have you read any of her books?

  1. I'm in love with that hat! The buttons really are perfect. And that gingerbread man pin is too cute. (Also, the idea of a mystery knitalong is so cool. It makes me wish I could knit.)

  2. Your gingerbread man looks so HAPPY! I love him! I may have to copy you and make one for our tree from Twinkie's book now that I have it. :)

    I love the hat, but I already told you that. LOL

    I'm going to have to check out her books. I don't think I've seen them locally!
