I’ve been working on this one for a only a little bit – this is a cabled scarf that I’m knitting as a commission. Please excuse the lighting; it’s difficult to photograph dark blue and still see the detail, so the color has been brightened.
It’s summer, and acrylic slippers are too warm for this time of year. I’ve been attempting to make cotton slippers, and haven’t success as the fabric stretches. I also haven’t found the correct tweak to the pattern I’m using – it will be a whole new slipper pattern by the time I’m done.
I’m back to the drawing board, as this pair didn’t work either (I call these the ‘Blue Monday Slippers). They mostly fit FraizePlays, but they’re a bit loose in the footbed and shift a lot when walking. I’ll get it right eventually though!
Last Monday, I came up with a cute little project during my broadcast. I had been looking at making Hexipuffs, but wanted a new craft item that wasn’t already out there. I needed a new project that was quicker than my LPDs and Snarky Snakes as well. Ultimately, I ended up with this guy:
Mr. Sticky Up Hair has the same embroidered face as the LPDs and Snakes. But he’s gained a rockin’ haircut, and sports a key ring so that he can go on adventures with anyone that hooks him onto their keys. He’s currently a new offer on my Revlo Rewards Page.
After speaking with the local warming shelter, I began making some hats to donate. The shelter specifically requested items for men, so I’m using blues and grays, and some leftover camouflage yarn to make some items for them to give to folks in need.
