October 2017 wrap up

Happy Friday!

I hope you’ve all had a great week. Because it’s the beginning of the month again I thought I would share my makes from October with you.

On the knitting front, I’ve finished my Colour block jumper and my Hermione’s Everyday Socks and I’ve been loving both so much!

I’ve done quite a bit of crochet as well, mostly amigurumis, and I’m in the process of designing another ami for the amigurumipatterns.net contest. I’ve shown you Wiley the Wisp, my cute dolls and all my Halloween makes.

And of course, now that I’ve finished moving houses for a while, I could participate in our Fantastic Bake-along once again!

I have plenty of things planned for November! For one, I have joined a Hand Quilt-Along hosted by the beautiful Kathy from Sewing etc. I’m super excited about this as it will give me the opportunity to work on my EPP. I have also decided to join Sewchet’s stitching santa and I can’t wait to get assigned my partner and go yarn shopping for them!

I wish you all a wonderful November โค๏ธ

May wrap up

TGIF! And I am on mini holidays too for a week ๐Ÿ˜Š

My hubby and I are going to spend a week in Melbourne (in Australia, not the US!) where he will start working towards the end of the year. I’ve never been there but I’m really excited as I got told that the food and coffee down there is amazing! I’m also pretty excited because they have real winters and I will be able to crochet and knit heaps of wearable things once we move there. If you have been to Melbourne or live there, do you guys have any suggestions for good yarn shops? I might as well go and visit a few!

Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick recap for May. I actually did not finish many things in May but the ones I finished were pretty big (except for Yoda, he is tiny)!

I think that starting and finishing a blanket in a month (actually more like 3 weeks) is a record for me, I’ve never done a blanket that fast! The cross stitch was also the longest of the year, look at all this beigy/brown! And I even got some sewing done, talk about multi crafting ๐Ÿ˜‚ I also tested a great bikini top pattern from Oceans Originals but I can’t show you anything yet, patience!

I also dug out a few projects and I am working hard to get those finished in June!

I’m actually not sure why I’m doing so much needlework considering it’s winter! What I am thinking, I wonder?

I also did some baking in May, and I participated in my first Fantastic Bake Along! It was great and I can’t wait for the June one.

So, my plan for June is to finish knitting my socks, hopefully find some time to read more ย (maybe on the plane) and get back on track for my LOTR blanket.

What have you been up to during May? Do you also have a huge list of projects you’d like to start/continue/finish in June?

Have a great weekend!
