I had my college orientation this week, and I got a Wii U, so I’ve been busy and not doing a lot of crafts.
Hyrule Warriors Scarf
I’m still plugging away on this. I got quite a bit done at my college orientation, and I’ll be working on it at the RWBY showing I’m going to tonight, so hopefully I’ll make some noticeable progress (the thread it so tiny!)
I haven’t been working on this as much as I should – otherwise it would be done! – because its not as mindless as the Hyrule Warriors Scarf. But I’m almost done! Maybe this afternoon I’ll finish.
I finished my Belle Bomber so you should check that out! And I finally got up decent photos of
We had some friends over last Friday for what we like to call a “crafty day” where everyone sits around and does their own craft and we chat and eat food. I got quite a lot of stuff done then and since its still my summer vacation, I’m still getting a lot done.
But I also started my first job yesterday (eight whole hours!) so that’s been keeping me busy (and sore).
I finished my Twist and Slouch hat, and I love it! I knit this in a bright red Caron One Pound that my mother has had laying around our house since the dawn of time.
Tara Wheeler’s Season Twelve Scarf
I make no secret of my love of all things nerdy and fandom-related, so a few years back I decided I needed to make a Fourth Doctor Scarf. Diligently I researched and found the perfect yarn, and found a website entitled Witty Little Knitter by Tara Wheeler (I can no longer find the site, but her Ravelry is still operational.) If you don’t know, Tom Baker wore several versions of the scarf over his term as the Doctor, but for my scarf I settled on Season Twelve.
This is the prettiest thing I’ve ever designed, if I do say so myself (and I can so I shall!). The Snow Drop cowl is knit up quickly with large needles, so there’s no worrying about time constraints. You could easily make it in a few hours.
At the moment, the only project I really have on the needles is the semi-circular scarf from my Alice In Wonderland collection, Frumious Bandersnatch, which is going great!! I love the yarn I’m using, Mill Ends from Stitch Studio by Nicole, and the lumpy, uneven texture of the yarn only serves to enhance the project itself. However, before I offer up the pattern, I’ll have to figure a way to make the starting point, the middle, lay flat, mine has an odd bump to it, which I can’t decide if its the yarn or a mistake I made. I don’t mind the bump, but some people who would want to use the pattern might.
That’s actually the only pattern on my needles at the moment, surprisingly, because I’ve finished Twist and Slouch, and I haven’t yet started the scarf to match it, or the hat and gloves to match my Sea Witch Cowl.
