Since I’ve put a hold on jewelry making and general crafting until after our move (one week from tomorrow!), I’ve been doing a lot of knitting and crochet. It’s easier to pack in my suitcase than Mod Podge. :) Also, since we’re not exactly used to the colder temps in Chicago (especially when we were apartment hunting!), I thought we could all use some new hats and things.
Here are some Instagram pics of my latest projects, followed by a link to the pattern:
I actually finished this scarf before we knew we were moving, but I had to share it because I love how bulky and cozy it is!
Once I knew we were moving and that we’d soon be apartment hunting, I quickly crocheted hats for Penny and myself.
I used the leftover yarn from her mittens so they would match.
I decided not to wear it slouchy like the pattern shows.
Allston Unisex Super Simple Slouchy Hat
I used the rest of that gray yarn to knit some fingerless gloves. This was my project in the hotel room when Penny was napping.
Ribbed Fingerless Gloves
Not wanting to leave my husband out, I crocheted him some fingerless gloves using this pattern and some bulky charcoal gray yarn. But I didn’t get a picture of them before he left for Chicago again. :( I did, however, get a picture of this hat I made for him with the same yarn, which I’m saving for his birthday on Wednesday (shhhh…don’t tell him!). Now that it’s not quite so cold in Chicago, I don’t know if he’ll get a lot of use out of it right now, but at least it will be ready when he needs it!
And because I was in a hat-making mood, and I really wanted a slouchy hat, and I’ve kinda been procrastinating on getting things ready for the move, I used some spare yarn to make this cute slouchy beret.
I think today I might actually take a break from knitting and get some stuff organized for the move. :)
