As the year ends I want to do one last update on the projects I’ve been working on. 2014 has been one heck of a year and I haven’t had much time to knit or write for this blog, but I have been super busy on other ventures, writing or otherwise.
In years past I have attempted to start blog series’ and have failed to keep up all of them. Sky Scarf Saturday had so much potential but I eventually could not keep up on knitting my daily rows and I couldn’t keep up on my photos. However, with one day left in 2014 I will give you a peek at the result this year’s high temperatures have given me.
My sky scarf is not completely finished yet, so it’s technically a WIP. There’s still one more day to record. I won’t be able to finish it up until I get back from studying abroad this January but I’m planning on blocking the wool to hopefully lengthen it and stretch it out a bit and then sew it into a cowl because it’s a bit short for a scarf.
An FO! If you recall from earlier this year’s knitting meltdown, I finally finished my first pair of gloves! They looked like this before, with one drastically larger than the other for a still unknown reason.
I frogged the large one and remade it so – voila!
This one was a crochet quickie! A secret Santa present for a Chipotle loving buddy! (patterns here) I’m starting to love amigurumi and maybe I’ll do more in 2015.
In 2015 I’ll be still working on my granny square blanket and then I’ll have to look for some new knitting adventures! I’ve been and will be doing some traveling and you know what that means – yarn store hunting! Look out for a post on some cool NYC yarn stores in the near future. This also means potentially buying yarn so inspiration is abundant.
The last time I did a Sky Scarf Saturday was August… Now there’s only about one month and one week left in 2014. Let’s see what’s been going on! It’s gotten so long that it’s difficult to capture it all in one image.
All in one!
One month left! I can’t wait to wear it… except I’m going to be in Southeast Asia in January on study abroad (which I’ll be starting a new blog for, so watch out for it). It’s going to be summer there! I’ll have to wait until I come back to winter in February to don my new 2014 Sky Scarf!
Every time I write a new post, it always starts with “it’s been quite a while.”
It’s not that I don’t have time to craft but that it’s become such a hassle to figure out good lighting to take a picture, edit, upload, and write. However, here’s a handful of things I’ve been working on over the past couple months.
I bought an iPad mini as a self birthday gift and made a sock out of some of the self-striping yarn I bought in Hong Kong a couple summers ago.
I bedazzled mini pumpkins!
I’ve also been slowly working on my granny square blanket. It’s a loooooong process.
Next up I’ll being doing a long overdue Sky Scarf update.
I haven’t done a Sky Scarf Saturday update since June (eep!) and it’s August now. The summer has flown by so quickly. The seasons are really showing in my scarf and I love the neon pops.
It’s currently around 33 inches and it’s half done. I’m not sure if only making it for 2014 will be long enough for my liking. It might take longer to make, which is depressing because I really, really want to wear it ASAP. Patience, grasshopper.
