Red White & Blue

Here are two of my recently completed projects. They look a little matchy-matchy but one is not meant for me. I did a second "Letter Have It" tote from the Stitch N Bitch Nation at the request of my Mom. She wanted one for her friend in a red/white/blue combo which I acheived through Kool Aid. The colors look just like the Bomb Pop icecream I loved as a kid.

The second project was a very quick knit. The Topi Hat from Knitty. I was able to knit this in just over a day. It was fun but I wished I had used a nicer yarn. I just knit it in some acrylic I had deep in the stash and it was a bit scratchy. I'll know for the next time.

Short Row Noro

Mmmmmm, I just love this Noro colorway. I’d rub my face in it if I wasn’t pretty sure I’d give myself a splinter of some sort. I’m always pulling some sort of twig or fluff out of that lovely wool.

This is from Magknits. After awhile you don’t even have to follow the pattern anymore you can see where it’s going and just know what your supposed to do. If anyone wants to try this scarf there is a tiny misprint in the pattern. On the 12th row of the first section it’s supposed to be knit to the end not purl.

Now if it would only cool down so that I could wear this. That won’t happen for another 4 months or so. According to the online weather report we are looking at a temperature of 106 degrees tomorrow. 106!!! I may cry. That’s about a week now with triple digit temps. I wonder what my apartment complex’s stance is on inflatable kiddie pools on our porches. I may have to find out soon. I can knit and wet block at the same time if I do.

In the meantime I'll be huddled indoors avoiding the sun and watching my Netflix discs of Cracker and Alias.

X-back Adjustment

I've altered my Razor Cami to now be cross-backed. This solves the strap falling problem.

Razor Top

A shot of my mostly completed Razor Cami top. This was done with 2 skeins of Knitpicks palette in blush. Total cost of this project was $3.58 and you just can't beat that. There were some adjustments to be made since the pattern is for a smaller bust and as a result of my enlarging the body size the straps are pretty much in my armpits. Next time I'll know to adjust and make the front smaller. Eventually I plan to go back and make the straps cross in the back so there won't be a constant adjusting.

Coming soon though is another felted "Letter Have it" tote that my Mom requested for her friend. I've already dyed the yarn now I'm waiting for it to dry out.
