Alpaca Your Wrap in Vista Update

Look at the colors! I think this wrap is turning out quite well, and can’t wait for it to be finished! Granted, it is already getting to be rather hot here, at least too hot for wraps, but by the time I have finished it should be closer to fall! (yay!) It also helps? Doesn’t help? That I had originally only bought one skein of the Wisdom Poems Sock yarn in Vista. . . because I was going to make . . . socks. {whistles} So, currently waiting on the skein I ordered earlier this week, as it should give me the about 800 yrds (ish) I need for the pattern. Since I am using a lighter weight AND smaller hook, I may get another skein anyways, depending on how the two work out. We’ll see.

Bunny Happenings, & Coffee

So, the latest project for the Gallatin Valley Stitchers is to make small stuffed animals for first responders, like, small enough they can be stuffed in small spaces until needed, yet large enough a child could hug.  I found this awesome blog post, and now we are making a thing. This morning we gathered at Cold Smoke and started our teddy bears and bunnies.

Pictures to follow.

Works in Progress, and Better Sock Experiments

Current sock experiment. I am using this pattern, and am having a lot of success with it. So far.I think I may just need to do cuff down (what I’m doing now) instead of toe up like the last great sock experiment.

After frogging this cowl-to-be a few times, I finally settled on a pattern. This is the first pattern I bought via Ravelry – Imprint of Autumn Scarf. Once you get the counting your stitches down, and using a chainless starting double crochet, you’re good to go.

Pattern I found at Yarn Scout – after it is blocked, you will see more of a lace pattern. Simple, but pretty. This will be for a friend.

Another simple but pretty pattern, another scarf I am making for a friend. This one I can actually post! All you do is cast on a multiple of 4. plus 2. Knit two. Knit one using the back of the loop, purl one. repeat until last two stitches, knit 2. Turn, repeat.
