Mystery: Week 3

Mystery: Week 3

This weeks clue was some what delayed, so I took the time I was going to spend on that on finishing a baby blanket. Its done and now I have a new item for my Etsy shop.

Baby Blanket

The clue was to make a striped corner to corner square. The last two weeks we were to make 4 squares each but this week its 8. I only have 3 done because the clue was late and I was busy finishing projects and starting others. I’m really liking the colors that I chose and the way that the stripes have ended up.

Yarnspirains Week 3

 

It is very cold here so knitting is how I’ve been spending most of my time while watching my favorite TV shows. A little bit of a tangent Parks and Recreation ended last night and I loved every second. You should all watch it.

I love knitting in public and on Monday night my brother was in an orchestra concert so the nice orchestral music was good to knit along to. I had to start something and take it with me as the baby blanket was to big at this point to fit into my bag so i started a 4 by 4 rib scarf, and in the hour and a half we were there I knit 9 inches. That’s not to bad for me. This will be my new take-along project when I’m in waiting rooms.

Let me know what you’re working on in the comments, thanks for reading.

Mystery: Week 2

Mystery: Week 2

This weeks mystery clue was to make a cabled square.

Well I don’t like knitting cables so this week my mom made them. Cables confuse me but my mom says they’re the easiest if you follow the pattern and read the instructions.

Cabled Squares

These were much smaller than last weeks. They are about 6 in squares. They look very rectangular I think that it’ll work out.

 

Now we have 8 squares done. I can’t wait for next Tuesday and Week 3.

If you’re also doing this KAL let me know how you’re doing in the comments.

Today is…

Today is…

…My Birthday!!

Well it’s a good day. My parents made my favorite foods and my family came to celebrate with me.

But the best part of today is my cake.

Birthday Cake

My mom made it and I decorated it. I love purple so I put food dye and colored it.

I had to decorate it with a ball of yarn and some knitting. I love it.

It’s been a good birthday. Thanks for reading.

Mystery: Week 1

Mystery: Week 1

Today started the Yarnspirations Mystery Afghan KAL-CAL. I’m doing the knit version so I’ve been waiting for today since I signed up.

The first week is to make four mitered squares. There were instructions and a video to show how to do the stitches. It wasn’t a difficult pattern but I only have one of the four done.

One thing I did do before I stated was write down each of the yarn colors and making sure that I assigned the right contrast color, A through E.

I even put the letter on each skein so I know and won’t confuse myself.

First Round

I’m not sure how many inches of snow fell last night into this morning but around noon we went out for the first round of shoveling.

The local meteorologists are calling for over a foot so it was better to do it once now and see what happens today and tomorrow.

I bundled up with two pairs of pants, two pairs of socks, three shirts, two pairs of gloves, a hat and a coat with a hood.

It kept me warm thanks to the gloves and hat I knit for myself.

I hope that you all stay warm and safe if you are in the path of this storm.

Now back to my knitting …
