More WIP & a FO

So, I finished a Christmas Reindeer for my training supervisor. I believe it is one of the cutest things I have ever made. I posted this one on Facebook a few weeks ago and when my training supervisor saw it, she asked if I could make it. I happily said yes and as soon as I got done with the other six toys were done, I started on this one. Surprisingly this one did not take as long as I thought it would. The small pieces were fiddley, but I got them to work. If you want the info on the pattern and yarn, I used just comment here.

Now I have two pairs of socks to complete and a blanket to complete. I should also find time to work on my temperature blanket sometime, lol. I think I am on the month of January still on it. Though I have kept track of the temperatures each day so I can follow them when I work on it. I am making it into a king size blanket when it is done. I have no clue how I am going to wash it when it is done. I also have another pair of socks for JR, his blanket, and several other UFOs to complete. My work never ends, lol.

My next photo is from the socks I am making Rachel.

Yarn: Yarn Bee Authentic Hand-Dyed in Myrid Lights

I am still working on the cuff. Though I only have ten more rounds more to go before starting the actual pattern. I just cannot decide which side I like better. The one on the left is inside out but I love the texture look. The one on the right is right side out so it is smooth looking.

WIP – Rachel’s Socks

This is the only way I am showcasing any of my WIPs. I refuse to fill up my domain space with photos of my WIPs. So, I figured that I would showcase them here & then if you want to see more then you can head to my Ravelry profile & look at all my project WIPs there. You can also find a section on the right-hand side that has abbreviations of words that are commonly used & ones that I use for your understanding.

So, I was contacted via Messenger that Miss Rachel (last name kept out) wanted a pair of socks like I was making JR. Ok, I thought no biggie. I will do those also. I usually do all my socks toe up, but I have never done them cuff down. I thought why not? I need a new knitting challenge anyway. Like any normal person (who thought I was normal) I went to Youtube. I found CrazySockLady & her video on the German Twisted Cast On. I have always read that this was a stretchy cast on for anything that needs a stretch. I have tried to complete this cast on before, but I never could get the hang of it. This time I did. Yes, I was very proud of myself.

Anyway you came to see photos & I have said photos.

The caked-up skein of yarn
The first two rounds of the socks. There are two there, I promise, lol.

Hi There!!!!

So, this shouldn’t be a new site for most of you, but this is where I am going to be showcasing my crafts. I knit & I crochet mostly. I am hoping to have galleries and the ability to make custom orders based on my knitting & crochet work.

I have been knitting & crocheting most of my life. I do not claim to be the best or the fastest. I do enjoy completing each & every project I start. I enjoy making socks & blankets the most. I enjoy the magic of that I can take a skein of yarn and turn it into a pair of socks or blanket (along with making several other items also). So come on this journey with me & let us see what chaos we can create.
