Okay let's see, project wise I have completed 21 since last checking in here and have begun at least 5 more...at least!
Let's show off the completed works of art:
Morticia (Boo Knits Halloween MKAL)
This was such a fun knit and a wonderful bunch of people in the group on Rav to knit it with!
I have made a TON of these for gifts etc. (At least 20 or so.)
Small Morticia for Sister in Law
Team Fan Chevron Blanket for Father in Law
Blue Bulky Yarn Booty
These are just too cute. I made two pairs of these as well. I had to alter the pattern just a smidge to bring the opening up a little higher.
It's amazing that with all this slipper making I did....I never did get to actually KEEP a pair for myself!!! I gave them/allowed them to be scooped up by non-makers. Heck, I can always whip up a pair for myself! :)
The ringing in of the New Year brought us news of a 2014 deployment. It also brought the 2014 Crochet Mood Blanket CAL! Thanks to FROFUNKY for starting the ball rolling on this one! I bet she never expected it to gain the momentum it has. Here is a link to the FaceBook Group. If you search crochet mood blanket, you will see a TON of crafty blogs showing off their squares.
The idea is to choose a color based on your mood for the day and hook or knit up a square. If you choose to do the square a day, ideally you would end up with 365 square blanket. Choose a square a week and you have 52 squares. Some of us makers are joining as we go along, others are waiting to the end. some are doing mood squares, others are choosing a color palette. Some are doing one blanket, others are doing more. It's really all up to the maker!
I have decided to do 4 blankets. One for Boy Wonder, one for Teen Queen, one for Rambo and one for myself. Here is a collage photo from my IG feed. The colorful one is for my daughter, Americana is mine (colors chosen to represent this year's deployment), Captain America is for my son, and the camo one is Rambo's.
The one I am most behind on is Captain America. I fashioned together a pattern, now I have to recall what I did and write it down! O_o Signs of a bad designer: forgets to write down work! hahahahah!
I've whipped up a couple more Infinity scarves for Teen Queen. I figure she can use them at college, a hug from momma while she is hours and hours away from home. One for Valentine's and the other for St. Patrick's!
That's about it for now! I've also whipped up a couple spa cloths to go along with some all natural bath & body products I made. I will post a pic of those in a follow up!
A follow up that will come before the end of the year... I promise! :D
Until then...STAY WICKED CRAFTY!!!
