Normally I only have one project going at a time. Right now, I have 5 projects that I am working on. I have been trying to get cupcake hats, some hats for teens and adults, cowls, a scarf, and a cocoon made.
I have spent the last few days working and experimenting with my cupcake pattern. I am trying to figure out other ways to make the brim part of the icing. So far I have tried 2 different ways to make it and I am happy with both. I like the way that the icing looks on my original pattern, but felt like there was a way to make it look more uniform. I will be posting pictures soon with my new and improved icing.
I am also working on my favorite knit hat. I am using a wool blend this time and I am very happy with the way it is turning out. I love the nice fall color that I picked out and I like the way it looks with my pattern.
I plan to make a cowl with the same wool blend I am using on my favorite knit hat. I have to finish the hat first though, because I would like to use the yarn that is left over.
The scarf that I am working on is a pattern I have been wanting to try ever since I got the pattern from this blog. It is a ruffle scarf and I am loving the way it is turning out. I will post pictures of my finished scarf once it is complete.
I went to Jo-Ann fabrics yesterday and picked up some new yarn. Vanna's Choice yarn was on sale. I have never used this brand of yarn before, but could not pass up the deal and the great fall colors.
I have plans to make an acorn hat and some pumpkin hats for the fall. I will be keeping up with all my new projects here, so my blog will be updated more now that I am back to knitting again. :)
