The Yarny Projects of 2013
A year of 3 and a half yarny projects.
|Psychedelic Silk Yarn dress|
|Tiger Granny Square blanket|
Second yarny project was a crochet one. A simple giant granny square made from acrylic yarn bought while being idle in Walmart. It began in June and was completed in November. No pattern was needed as it is a granny square. That kept my hands busy for months.
|Pom pom hat|
Third yarny project began while being bored on Thanksgiving day and having completed the crochet blanket... Also, I needed a hat. There was a knitted cowl neck dress (I made) that was not worn often simply due to its itchy cowl collar. Because I made that dress, I had the license to unravel it as well: Took apart the cowl collar and turned that portion into a hat. Created a matching pompom with leftover yarn from granny blanket. The formerly-unloved knitted dress is now worn frequently throughout this winter. So is the hat.
|Longest Work-In-Progress for 2013|
This... This knitting project is an epic work-in-progress. As part of a de-stash, I was kindly given 2 skeins of "eco wool" from a lady I met online on Ravelry. We met for coffee in town -- in Feb/Mar -- while I was still awaiting the arrival of our belongings from Switzerland. This wool yarn was to get me started and to give me reason to meet up with the knitting group. I never made it to that particular knitting group due to the incompatible schedule.
