Wednesday WIPs

 

Remember that Fright Club KAL project I swore I wouldn't be able to keep up with? I am way ahead. It turned out to be potato chip knitting. I can't stop once I start. It's a brilliant pattern. It's All Tricks No Treats by Amy Gunderson and it comes in a crochet and knit version. That Madeline Tosh yarn is a dream to work with. This hat won't need a lining-it's that soft.



I also discovered that some of the boxes hold a surprise. Day 7 had a plastic bag that held.......




....a Halloween themed stitch marker necklace. There are several designated rest days where you get a treat instead of yarn. How cool is that?


And........I spent a small fortune yesterday buying the yarn and the patterns for the advent calendar KAL Arne and Carlos just published. I have always wanted some little sweaters for my tree and this may be the year.

  1. Loving that hat and the stitch markers are pretty neat too. A great idea to break it up. I've always wanted to knit little sweaters for the tree too but always have too many other gifts on the go.
    Someday.....
