Toe-up Tuesday


 

Finished this toe-up sock today.

I figured out how to do the Kitchener cast on using the KB Sock Loom!

KB Sock Loom Adjustable Wood Knitting Board Kit w/DVD

I’ve posted the YouTube how-tos earlier in this blog. But I might not have shared the super stretchy bind off. I really like this hack!

 

 

Fat Doll


I’ve made a bunch of these comfort dolls. Yet this is the biggest one. Reminds me of the Pilsbury Dough Boy,

Finished Friday


Yep, I finished another pair of socks. These are the same pattern as I posted last Friday. They are all the same yarn and color though the cell camera just doesn’t capture them the same. They are now in the donations bag.

There was enough of that yarn left over to make these cute booties on the KB fine-gauge baby bootie loom. Two-by-two cuff, German rows heel, drawstring toe.

Then I started missing making the dolls so I made another. I made him a little longer in the legs and arms than I usually do. I think I like that better. My biggest mistake was not stuffing the whole doll and then sewing closed. I tied the neck first but that makes the head too wrinkly. Note to self: don’t do that next time.

The basic instruction for these dolls are in this tutorial:

How was your week? Have a great weekend and Happy Labor Day!

The above double toy (finished today), from following instructions Denise of Loomahat.com on this YouTube tutorial:

Though I like making the blanket and getting better at it, I don’t like sewing on the bits and pieces. I think they are cute and I think someone will find comfort in this toy, I need a break. And I bet you guys need something else to look at here.

But I had to share the toy because of the prompt for today’s challenge of the Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Thank you Linda G. Hill for the fun prompts!

Sorry to non-yarners, but when I feel challenged I answer the call. Today I started a lavender lovey Blanket double toy. The blanket itself takes a couple days of constant counting. The acorn pattern is fairly simple, if you pay attention. ADD makes that hard so I have tricks to help me stay on track. I had to print out the pattern and Mark where I was at all times. I had to put a marker at the beginning of each set so I could count rows to be accurate. My first try at the blanket, I had to rip it all out as I blogged a few days ago. It is the bind-off that gives me the most trouble. The one I shared two days ago I made with the drawstring bind-off. I figured the crochet border hides the sin. Today I took my time to listen to Denise’s tutorial. It turned out so nice I didn’t want to put the border on. But tightening the loose loops is always hard for me. It took three hours to get it done. Here’s the blanket without a border.

Here’s with the border.

And here’s more of the project I need to assemble tomorrow.

I used the safety eyes instead of sewing them.

Since I’m posting from my phone I’ll ask that you look to yesterday’s post or Loomahat.com for the tutorial.

I hope you’re all having a great week and weekend!

Finished Project


One side is a doll, the other a little lamb. Now I want to make more of these! LoomaHat’s tutorial can be found here.

Try Two


After frogging, I started working on the project again.

Now I just need to see it together. The border still isn’t perfect, but I plan to make more and, well, practice makes it!

Frogged


I was nearly finished but the bind off was too tight! Bah!

Here’s Another I Want to Make



It is 9:08PM. Until two minutes ago I had no idea what I had to offer you for today’s blog. Then I looked out the window. Here is what I captured west to east and west (trees are in the west) again.

 

And the sunset is still beautiful at 9:30PM. I love Summer for this beauty! And the sound of the frogs outside.

Oh, and I finished this little guy yesterday:

If you want to learn how, head over to LoomAHat.com or watch this YouTube. I use a much smaller loom and short row the arms so I don’t have to sew them on. And this time I used safety eyes. I think they’re cuter!
