2019 Crafty Goals

January 1, 2019

#45 - Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! *


- I showed a basic hat that I made using Brava Worsted, but that was a FO last time. Oops!!!

- Coffee Cup Coasters using a variety of yarn and H hook. The pattern is from Repeat Crafter Me and is super cute! These were very well received, let me tell you!

- Fair Isle Hat using the pattern from Yarnspirations, but with a twist. I used the colorwork chart from hkcwwong I saw on Ravelry instead of the Yarnspirations' chart. The colorway was Strawberry Chill from Caron x Pantone.


- I'm making a beautiful Wood Bead Garland, but I wasn't able to show it off. Next time! And maybe a tutorial too!

- I am making a Hitchhiker Shawl for my friend using Knit Picks Stroll Handpainted in the Lullaby colorway and using needles I bought on Amazon that are very similar to the old Chiaogoo Red needles. They have that cabled cord I love so much about my Red Lace set! I linked to a similar set on Amazon as the ones I purchased before are not available from the same seller.


- At my work's holiday party, I received 4 gorgeous skeins of yarn from Hobby Lobby.


- Other than some random ailments, things have been good. I've been working a lot and enjoying all the holiday festivities.

- I'm very thankful to have my crafting mojo back. I hope it never leaves me again!

- Go watch this video from Amy Beth aka The Fat Squirrel. It's so good!

#44 - I'm Back!!!

Hi!!! It's been so long since I've done a podcast, but I'm back and there will most definitely be more! Onto the show notes! *


- Basic Hat (just winged the pattern) out of Knit Picks Brava Worsted in the Camel Heather colorway. I used size 8 16 inch fixed circulars from Knit Picks.

- Stacked Eyelet Cowl by Ami Madison using Handspun from Amy/mingmow/Rain Barrel Designs. It's gorgeous and I love the way it worked up! I used size 6 Chiaogoo interchangeable needles. It lived in a bag by Southpaw Creations.

- I'm making all the Granny Squares for an upcoming pattern and tutorial. (kinda a WIP too)


- No-Heal SpiralSocks by La Maison Rililie using Knit Picks Felici in the Surf's Up colorway and living in a bag from Rain Barrel Designs.

- I'm making a hat out of Caron x Pantone yarn in the Strawberry Chill colorway. I used the cast on count from this pattern from Yarnspirations, but I don't think I'm going to use the actual colorwork pattern. Not sure yet! For the needles, I'm using size 9's for the band and will switch to size 10's when I'm done with the ribbing. They are the 16 inch interchangeables from Knitter's Pride.


- I bought 6 colorways of Caron x Pantone from Michaels. The colorways are Strawberry Chill, Elephant Gray, River Rock, Ultra Violet Minerals, Frozen Berry, and Terrarium Green.
