weekend crafts

I just finished crocheting two bacon and egg scarves.
Yesterday I painted two gourds in a style inspired by the aboriginies. I want to do more on those when I have time. Today I just had no energy so didn't get a whole lot done. I got 3 more pumpkins to carve on Halloween. The price dropped from .28 lb to .19 a lb so I'm glad I only bought one at the higher price.

More knitting.

Today I worked on knitted finger puppets and a hat that will have a long tail. I made tostadas for lunch. I'm stuffed. I'm thinking of making some mittens this winter. I've been meaning to for years.

finish those projects

Yesterday and today I've been going through unfinished projects. I started crocheting a raspberry beret. I also added a few rounds to another crocheted wizard's hat. I can't continue either one until I find more pink for the beret and more black for the wiz.
I finished 2 hats on the Knifty Knitter Loom. I just need to sew in the loose ends. I found a hexagon hat I had started but not finished. I found a bag of amigurumi I need to list on Etsy including a little multicolored elephant.

I found a skein of Homespun in autumn shades so started another knitting loom hat with that colorway. It's going to be soft and squishy and lovely.

I finished the orange triangle section of my royal blue knitted hat. Now I have to start the decreases up to the tip. And I'm still working on the City Lights hat I am knitting. It would be nice to finish at least one thing today.

Loom Hat

I haven't used my knitting loom in a while so I thought I'd start a new hat on it today. I'm using the 'magic ball' technique and two strands. The primary strand is a medium blue, and the 'magic ball' yarn is assorted colors. I think this will be a stocking cap look. I've only made one of the longer hats so far, and I've put it away so well I can't find it, so it's time to make another one.

Also, today was the first windy autumn day we had so YAY it's cozy hat weather. Whoopie!

City Lights

Today I'm knitting a hat I designed called City Lights. It has five colors. It's challenging keeping all the butterflies (bobbins) from getting too tangled. But nothing ventured, nothing gained right?
