Where did the week go? Episode 8 March Finished Objects is here! It seems like only yesterday, not a week ago, that I was sharing my knitting plans for my Spring Break.

Now, I did get a lot of knitting done, as well as a bunch of house projects, but I’m not ready for Spring Break to be over. Is anyone really?

So what did I get done this past week and what did I finish this month?

Finished Objects

Bernat Mango Madness Dishcloths: 10.

(I have a the rest of the week to finish out the cone, so I’m confident that I will get all of this yarn knit up in March. This was also part of my March Goals for the month.)

Pieces Afghan Squares: 7

Since my little brother moved into his new house, I’m considering taking all the pieces I have so far and sewing them together to make a blanket for him. Haven’t fully decided on this yet.

Scrappy Wrap

After a month-long break from my Scrappy 10 Stitch Wrap, I got it back out for Spring Break. I managed to add 100 rows to my wrap! It equaled out to almost two and a half feet added on the stripe. I still have so much more to go on this side before I reach the corner.

Mini Skein 10 Stitch Blanket

I’m officially done with knitting up Ann’s samples! Not gonna lie. Those samples were tough at times. I’ve opened up my first package of Lion Brand Bon Bons, Beach colors. The blue, OMG y’all, the first Bon Bon of that blue! I love this color soooooo much! I’ve knitted almost all the blue, and have tied in the next Bon Bon (orange).

I was shocked when I took out the first Bon Bon. It’s so DENSE! I don’t know what I was expecting exactly. The label does say each Bon Bon is 28 yards, but that doesn’t really mean much for me.

Other Stuff I’ve Been Working On

I’ve make some necklaces: fall leaf necklace and cooking charmed necklace.

I attempted to fix my mom’s favorite necklace that broke. I made it too short, so I need to redo it.

I’ve spoken about in my Goals blog posts and videos my Bobbin Lace workbook. I actually got to work on it this month. If there’s any interest, I’d love to show off my pillow and current project on the podcast.

What has everyone else been working on?

***I don’t plan on having a Monthly Knits post for December. Since craft show season is over, I’m taking a break from making inventory and have been working on my Frankie Brown Camo 10 Stitch Blanket. I hope to have it finished by Christmas. If I do, then I’ll have a post about it.***

Happy crafting!

Because I was traveling for part of October, I didn’t get as much knitted this month as I have in month past. If I travel within the United States, I do take knitting with me. However, I didn’t want to risk getting my beloved Bamboo needles and cotton yarn confiscated by TSA.

I did check out the TSA guidelines and the airline guidelines, and both said I could bring my knitting on the plane. Now, we all know TSA’s reputation. All it would have taken was a TSA agent on a power trip or decide he/she liked my needles and yarn and I lose my project.

ANYWAYS…October was Orange Yarn Month for me! Not that I’m complaining, but here’s what I was able to get done this month:

Baby Blankets:

Bernat Blanket Pumpkin Spice (1)

Dishcloths:

Bernat Freshly Squeezed (11)

20161105_074307

Scrubbies:

20161105_074256

See? Orange Yarn everywhere! And that was not intentional! I made up the To Be knit order for the baby blankets back in January, and I knit my cotton in the order it is on my Inventory list in my Knitting TN Insert. OCD I know, but there is a reason.

Side tangent: For a few years, I was just buying cotton yarn when it was on clearance, but I couldn’t keep up with knitting all of it. A year ago, I decided to stop buying all cotton yarn I see, unless it was a really REALLY good deal. And I’ve been knitting through my stash. All the Bernat skeins I’ve been working through were bought 3-4 years ago.  And any yarn that is bought, gets added to the inventory list. So a ball of Peaches and Cream Light Blue yarn is the most recent purchase (Clearance for $0.50!). So if I don’t buy any more cotton until I’m through with what I have, that ball will be the last cotton ball.

Wow, this is a much longer Monthly Knits post than what I intended. Did that make sense to anyone else?

And since I’ve been asked in past Monthly Knits posts if I sell my stuff on ETSY. Yes, now that craft show season is over, I will be listing everything left on ETSY.

How’s everyone else’s crafting going?

Despite how I felt about September went for me, in my October Goals Update, I must say I did have a fairly productive September, knitting-wise.
