Knitables

I never thought this could happen…

I’m actually running low on supplies.

I’ve been knitting like a madwoman lately whenever I can get a chance and I’m actually running low!

Two of the M’s presents are done.
I made an orange headband out of my hand-dyed Orange Koolaid yarn (post and pictures to come!)
I’ve made two hats out of the gorgeous red yarn
I made Quincy out of some left-over white yarn (**Currently for sale… if anyone is interested)
I’m working on Gryffindor and Hufflepuff
Anthony’s scarf is about a foot and a half done and I haven’t had the time or the inspiration to continue working on it… Sorry, Anthony!
Graham is still being worked on. I’ve not had time over the last couple of days to get a single stitch on the needles so I’ll have to really get working on that this weekend if I want to be able to wear it any time soon.

I’m still a little behind of where I thought I could be right now. I wanted to have all my x-mas presents/friend’s creations done by now but I’m still scrambling. Christmas is over a month away so I know most of you are wondering what’s wrong with me that I think I’m behind schedule, but it’s just how I am!

In any case, I have about 4 full skeins of yarn from my Christmas extravaganza, and those are for two people, T and C. I’m still contemplating what I want to do for C because I’ll want to make hers long- requiring the yarn be held single, not double. Luckily Caron doesn’t make yarn with dye-lots so I don’t have a problem with multiple colors seeping into the yarn. I’m thinking a simple K1P1 Rib Stitch will suffice for her… thought it’ll take me longer to do.

Then with T’s scarf, I need to wait until I finish Anthony’s scarf… because Anthony’s is on the needles that I need for T’s.

Then, last night, I came to realization that I have about 5 or 6 skeins of the old brown that I wanted to make a sweater out of and 1 blue. I’m thinking a vertical striped scarf with a blue outline or a brown hat with blue crown, brim and flaps is in order soon.

I guess I’ll have to do an inventory when I’m done with the Christmas collection. Hopefully these yarns can last me until Seattle so I can go crazy with buying lots of yarns!

This yarn hates me

The yarn of Chucky

It’s the bane of my existence. I have knit the entire skein and then taken it apart probably four times. Soon it’s going to felt because it’s just not the right kind of yarn.

I’m in love with my other Spud and Chloe product, but this yarn is just… not working for me. I’ve tried to make a scarf for Tim only to find that I had a foot and a half of knitting… so I thought I could use it as well as a grey yarn used as well for the scarf for Tim. I found that the yarn was too thick for use with the darker grey.

So I took it apart and thought I could make a hat out of it.

I don’t have enough.

So now it’s in my project bucket, because I can’t stand looking at it.

I’m going to make a neckwarmer this weekend and hope and pray that I have enough yarn to create something I might actually like with it. Wish me luck!
