My supersecret project is growing and growing and growing. I wish I could show a picture of it, but suffice it to say that earlier this week my friend wore it as a hat. If she tried to do that now, she might drown in yarn. It frightens me daily, yet I press on knitting.
But for now, all I can show you is the new crochet design my mom made. It’s called the Quick Cotton Candy Swirl Blanket, and it’s raveled here. If you want to buy it but aren’t part of ravelry, click here.
I am going to attempt to blog at least once a week, since people from real life told me they want me to so they can keep tabs on what I’m working on…and who wants to disappoint them? Certainly not me!
The problem is, for the next two weeks(ish), I’m working on a SUPERSECRET project. Yes, you heard me. So secret it’s in all caps. Except not secret enough that I haven’t previously mentioned it and it’s not on Ravelry.
Anyway, I have finished up two pairs of socks. The first was the July Mystery Sock from SKA on Ravelry. I heavily modded it so that it doesn’t really look like the actual socks. I wanted to continue the striping up the leg, but I did the sock two at a time from both ends of two balls of yarn, so tangling was an issue. I finally just got fed up and gave up on the striping.
My second pair is for my beloved ex-roommate, who is off gallivanting through Spain as we speak. I’m going to visit her in October, so I’ll give her these when I get there. Meanwhile, yesterday they served as eye candy when I brought them to the Vassar activities fair to attract new members to our charity knitting club (of which I am currently the president!). I got a lot of questions about the yarn, which you can find on Etsy (she also sells Finding Nemo yarn, which I obviously own).
I did cast on two socks for SKA September, one being the yellow mystery sock by Nancy Bush (I now have a newfound love for all things yellow) and the other being the socks from the last shipment of the Loopy Ewe sock club. The new shipment is at my house right now, but my mom showed it to me on Skype and it’s (SPOILER ALERT) Wollmeise! I’m so excited to see it in person!
Until next time, when I can maybe tell you more about my supersecret project!
Sorry I’ve been absent these last few months. Summer was crazy and I’m just now getting back into the swing of things!
In case you didn’t hear, my mom and I have a new crochet pattern for sale on Ravelry. It’s called the Lake House Throw, and it’s a really nice piece that can be crocheted using pretty much any worsted weight yarn. We used Red Heart Eco-Ways, but a nice wool would be great as well. It’s easy but also a lot of fun!
You can find out more about it by looking at it on Ravelry or you can click this button to buy it if you’re not a member.
You’ll be hearing more from me in the next few days, and hopefully I can keep the blog updated regularly!
