That creative/crafty part of me has been SCREAMING to come out and make something...ANYTHING!!!!! So yesterday, I took ten minutes for myself and created this
But other than that, I think it's pretty cool and funky and definitely works with the 80s Flashback phase I am going through right now :)This color is Exclamation that came out a couple months ago. As soon as I perfect the bracelet I will use the coordinating heel and toe yarn for a matching bracelet! WooHoo!
Next quicky creation was this baby bonnet from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
I used the Hip Chick colorway and blended it with a Kid Seta for a bit of halo. I used the coordinating heel and toe yarn for the edging and the i-cord that still needs to be made. I am not especially pleased with this one. Firstly, I used a needle 3 sizes smaller than what was called for and it is ENORMOUS! When I redo it, I won't use the kid seta and I will drop down to a size 3 or 4 needle instead of the size 8 that is called for. Also, the pattern was amazingly confusing. After I ripping and redoing a number of rows, I figured out that the instructions could have just as easily said 'decrease every 5th knit row'. If you have the book, take a look at how it is written... (ex)repeat Row 13-20 repeat row 1 and 2, Row 21-30 repeat row 11-16-What the *&@@????? But now that I have it figured out and I won't use the kid seta in it for the redo, I think this will be an adorable little number!
