Drops design booties

Hi guys! 

I have finally finished my drops design booties. They are so so comfortable and I really love the Mawson yarn from Vera Moda that I used.    

   
I’ll also make an infinity cowl out of the same yarn for this winter. 

You can find the pattern for these booties here

😘

1 down, 1 to go!

Happy Monday! I have made some good progress with my Drops Design booties over the weekend. I have to admit I have been a little distracted considering the variable weather. One minute I really feel like knitting because it’s chilly and the next I’m sweating under my yarn like there is no tomorrow. But finishing those is one of my monthly goal so I need to get motivated!

Boot n1 is finished (not quite actually, still need to add some nice big buttons on the side), and I’m currently knitting the cuff of boot n2.

I have also made some progress on the Avatar afghan. I have actually found a better way of joining my yarn so that I don’t have thousands of ends to sew in and I’m very excited about it! When the last square of the colour is coming up, I don’t quite finish it and instead I tie a tight knot with the new colour I want. Then I make sure that the square is finished with the right colour and that the knot is at the intersection between both colours. And that’s it! no annoying ends! (put your curser on top of the pics to see captions)

For this pattern, my base is a C2C throw (free pattern available here) and I designed the pattern using Avatar: the last airbender as an inspiration 🙂

I’m so glad I found this little hack to simplify my life. Do you guys have some craft hacks you would like to share? I’d love to hear about them!

Poké-alphabet week 10

The poké-alphabet didn’t get much love this past month. But I’ll be working on it more now that the holidays are over.   

Gengar is getting some colours! 

Also, I probably lied when I said I would finish my boots by the end of the week 😁 I didn’t realise how long the legs actually take to make!

 
That’s what I got so far and it’s not even half of the first cuff. Getting back to knitting has been tough!

That’s it for tonight, I need to catch up on some sleep from yesterday 😉

Back to normal

Hello awesome people! 

I’m back to my normal posting schedule! I must say that being back home has made my life easier for crafting. 

I got to try my new loom and I’ve already put together a very nice and soft cowl using the infinity stitch. I was so surprised how fast this one actually worked up. 

     
 It is still a bit hot to wear at the moment but it will be nice for the winter. 

I have also been obsessing over those slippers seen on Pinterest but I couldn’t find any pattern for them until now! I couldn’t find any local shop selling Drops Eskimo yarn so instead I got this gorgeous Vera Moda yarn.  

 I love the feel of it but it was a bit hard to work with at first because it breaks easily if the yarn untwists. 

So far, this is what I’ve got.   

And the finished product should look something like that. 

 
That’s it for my Wednesday, I hope you all have good plans for tomorrow night (we’re going to see fireworks, I’m pretty excited!)

Lots of love

Emma
