Project Updates 08.01.17

Hey all! Sorry for my absence, I actually wanted to finish some projects before posting my next update but that hasn’t happened. 

I was working on this scarf using gorgeous cotton yarn from the Great Adirondack Yarn Co., but I had to unravel it because I was making it too wide and I wouldn’t have had enough yarn to complete it. I was thinking of buying more of it, but this particular colorway is out of stock everywhere near me. Sigh!


Next up is the socks I’ve been working on using the Crystal Palace yarns. I have two mismatched socks done, and I’ve started the third one. Here is the second one I just finished last week:


In other news, I did end up scooping up some more Crystal Palace yarns from my LYS, so I’m all stocked up on those for the time being (possibly forever). This picture is very purple but it’s the only one I have at the moment. More to come.


I’ve also been watercolor painting a lot lately, using my new espresso machine, and playing around with makeup art. I also got a new phone stand and will hopefully be making more youtube videos!

Sock Update!

Today I finished my first sock that I’ve been working on. 


It’s not perfect but it’s a fine first attempt. I’m planning on making three more socks with my remaining yarn in this colorway, so two of them will be more refined and one will be about identical. That should be some fun knitting during my 6 am shift tomorrow! 

After work tomorrow I will also be stopping by Yarn in Montpelier to pick up some more of the Crystal Palace Yarn I love so much. One of my friends actually wired me $6.80 because I mentioned I wanted some more. 

More updates to come! Hopefully the next few socks will go quicker!

First Pair of Socks

I’ve never knitted socks before, but I have just started my first pair and I’m pretty excited about it. 


After this, I am planning on knitting some as holiday presents for my family members.  Right now I am using a pattern I got from Must Love Yarn, a great LYS in Shelburne, Vermont. I got it for free during the annual Great Northern Yarn Haul! Check out my ongoing blog post about the yarn haul pinned at the top of my blog. 




I am using a yarn by Crystal Palace Yarns, now sadly discontinued, from their Danube line.


Yarn in Montpelier still has some of the Crystal Palace Yarns in stock, so I’m planning on heading there and scooping some up before they disappear forever. Here’s a bonus look at the ones I currently have that I might grab matches for:


That’s all for now! Keep an eye out for more updates on my other projects!
