First the Pinks
I’ve worked my way few a number of projects. I made two hats for the Women’s March and handed them off to my LYS before I snapped any pictures. More will be made, so I’ll get them next time. I finished a different pink hat using the Drifter pattern and a skein of pink Mountain Meadow Wool Sheridan. I opted to not do a pom on top and instead used the leftovers (#MakeWIPsNotWaste) to crochet a quick little amigurumi for my desk. I used the Little Sweet Hearts pattern, but I think my interpretation of the directions for the heart topper went a bit off track. It’s all good, it’s cute.
Then the Reds
I had stashed Madelinetosh Chunky in Cherry (two different lots) from a grab bag sale a while back. After a few false starts on other projects, I knit it up into the Bittersweet cowl. I love this project! It’s just right under my jacket or sweatshirt and doesn’t feel bulky or heavy. The cowl took a little more than one skein, so I looked to make a hat to match – finally. My handknit hats and cowls are mostly in similar color families so they go together, but it’s a happy accident. I liked the cables in the Josie hat and it was a fun knit. The end result was a hat that was slightly too small for my head (but did fit) and slightly too large for my kids (but did fit). I ended up donating it to the Women’s March as well.
And One More with All the Pinks
I am a big fan of Mamachee’s crochet patterns and the Busy Bitch shawl just made me smile. Combine it with a skein of Dream in Color Classy in Hot Pants, and… well, it made me smile even more. It’s finished, but it doesn’t quite sit right they way I think it should. All’s well, though, my daughter likes it and has claimed it.
