Pattern: Knit Frozen Snowflakes Beanie by Knit and Crochet Ever After
Purchased from: Craftsy
Yarn used: Plymouth Yarn Encore, pink heather and cream, worsted
This is my third hat using this pattern, it’s a great pattern, easy to follow, easy to understand. It has both the written instructions and a chart for the patterned section. I am still having trouble, I think, with my yarn tension, but each hat does get better. Practice makes perfect, they say.
I finished a second pair of mittens! This pair which much more quickly. My daughter wanted the tops to be different, so I went with that.
I also finally managed to finish the Nurmilintu Shawl. It’s smaller than I expected but I do like it and since it’s a Christmas gift, I hope the recipient likes it as well.
Currently on my needles is “Flax” by Tin Can Knits. It’s a free sweater pattern on Ravelry. This is my first sweater and I’ve already had to rip back and start over!! But now I am back on track. I’m making the 8-10 year old size for my daughter, Hannah. Figured I should probably start small with my first sweater.
I know it’s not much right now but I’m pretty excited about it. I also have another Snowflake Beanie on my needles, which I generally work on when it’s slow at work, because I am familiar with this pattern and it’s kind of hard to mess it up.
It’s actually farther than that, but I haven’t taken a photo lately. The last two times I made this hat I finished in a day, so it’s goes pretty quickly if you sit and actually work on it!
I also currently have a pair of socks on the needles. Well one sock… Okay, one sock toe.
I think that’s about it for this week. I added some new project keepers to my Etsy shop. There are also a few project bags still available, I will be making more of those soon though, first chance I get.
