Project Wrap-Up…..A Sweater, Hat and Scarf!

June 16, 2013 at 5:53 pm 2 comments

I have a bad habit……I usually finish a project and put it in the “to be blocked” pile. I had several projects in the pile and I decided to finish blocking them this week….uuum…..to make some room for my two new Tunisian crochet designs. My craft room is filled with yarn and I keep several projects next to my bed – so, it was time to get a little organized. I should add that for both projects, I bought the yarn during MDSW 2012.

Anyway, the first project is my MDSW sweater, made with some gorgeous worsted weight yarn from creativelydyed. Unfortunately, I altered the pattern to custom fit my body several months ago and I have now lost 61 pounds. I still love the sweater and will just pull it closer to me. It was originally intended to be a “cropped, close-fit” sweater for wearing with jean and such. Well, after blocking and losing weight, this is what it looks like.

The second project is a hat and scarf set made with “Mirabella” by Tess Designer Yarns. The scarf pattern was designed by my dear friend Sharon Silverman and I had extra yarn, so I decided to “freestyle” a matching hat. I have to say that in the middle of June, the hat and scarf are very warm!
