The yard has been cleaned up, the greenhouse prepared, and the animals are currently freaking out about the blanket of snow falling softly to the ground. It is as if they have never before seen snow…ok to be fair not all of them have, be it is still a sight to see.
Now that the snow has arrived, I have more time to work on projects and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. Here and there during the summer I had the chance to work on one or two items that were not wedding related, but only a little bit at a time.
I have certainly missed the moments of getting to sit and get lost in my work, which sometimes makes me consider Toph’s idea of selling the farm and traveling around the country in an old school bus…. I kid, I shall keep my feet planted firmly on the farm thank you.
I broke out all the projects that I am hoping to finish for Christmas (or the three birthdays that follow in January)
The first project I’ve made time for snow or not is the chemo blanket for a very beloved family member, this will have fleece sewn on the back when finished. This take priority over the other projects.
This is made with the new Caron cake colors: Blueberry Shortcake & Banana Bread. Sadly I had to take half of it out after trying a mix of two patterns that did not turn out as well as the lady who posted the tutorial.
Up next is an order I am in the process of finishing up
This is the Ulyne Unicorn Hood by the Velvet Acorn. I wont lie, I wish I had knit it, instead of crocheting. I made it child size per request and it did not even fit my child who is the same measurements as the intended. So here it is as the adult size, ready to be put together.
The first Christmas project of the year is from yarn I spun up myself. A blend of merino, silk, and yak
Fingerless mitts to help keep hands warm when gloves are not practical
The bulky and quick cat blanket from MJ’s Off the Hook Designs, though this might be turned into a wolf, we will see.
The never ending granny square style blanket, almost ready for the 4th cake.
The start of the Lost In Time shawl, this is a shawl that I need complete silence for. I will be doing this after children are tucked into bed for the night and while my husband works on his new app.
I am still trying to find the perfect item for my now EIGHT year old little boy, he is into so many things. Minecraft, Super Mario, and now books. Time will tell.
Have a great week folks!
