I don't have too much to show this week, as I'm more into completing projects lately, or working on things like the Ice Cream blanket that is slow going. I finished the hat, almost finished the corgi and hope to share both Friday, as well as my current WIP I'm sharing today. Isn't it nice to change items from in progress to complete on Ravelry?
Being aware that I haven't really gotten through very much yarn so far and the first month of the yarn diet is almost over, I decided to make something with the cotton I had remaining from my mom's market bag. I didn't have much left over, which is amazing since it was a 710 yard skein, so I knew I could only make something small. Since Valentine's day is just around the corner, I decided to make a cute little heart washcloth. It looks like I'll have just enough yarn, and will be able to cross off another skein in my yarn skein count. Total win situation! What I'm most amazed about with this project, is how DIFFERENT the yarn looks knitted in a line, instead of crocheted in the round. It looks like a completely different yarn, wouldn't you agree?
Okay, this may be cheating, but I am currently in the middle of untangling this mess. It is the remaining skein of the Fisherman's wool I used for my first two dye jobs (this one and this one). Trust me, this might be one of the hardest WIPs I've taken on lately. It got into this mess because I had to un-skekin it before I had a real ball winder and swift, and then the skein was WAY too big for my crock-pot the way I un-skeined it. What a mess. I've tucked it away for awhile now, and thought I'd give it a chance again. Anyone have any tips on trying to get this back to usable faster? Yeah, I didn't think so. LOL
