Snowflake Hat - Jan 20, 2018

Bunny Hat - February 12, 2018
Blue Wave - February 12, 2018

Well look at that! I have three finishes!

I finished Elephant Reserve baby sweater....just need to sew on the buttons....which ones do you like?
The back of the sweater:
I did find some elephant ones, but they are way too big and fiddly..so freaking cute though!

I whipped up a Bunny hat for another baby too (lots of babies being born!)...so I gave her four hats...will be making more throughout the year...
Did I show the others?  Here they are:
I copied the pink snowflake hat from her baby shower cake.
And I finished the Blue Wave hat for myself...hard to get pictures of yourself....
I freaking LOVE this hat!  I used Backyard Fiberworks Field, a worsted in Deep Creek and Natural. The outside pictures are better, but wasn't sure how well you could see the BLUE 2018 on the front.  The hat pattern is free on Ravelry

And I started another pair of socks (my font just changed and I can't figure out why?) Anyway...I saw EatKnitDye working on her socks...checked her etsy store and she didn't have any more skeins/balls...commented on her IG picture and she dm'd me that she did have another...so excited!!!

I did frog one of my shawls that I had barely started...

Works In Progress:         
WIPS: Crochet:
Round Ripple: (Started 2006 (?) Aiden)-not sure he'd want this anymore, being a high school freshman and all, but I think I'll finish it for him. He is now a sophomore.
Around the World Afghan: (April 2010): about ¼ done - I looked at this recently and I'm still liking it, so I'll keep it...maybe make it a baby blanket instead.
Sunrise Sunset Afghan: this has been hibernating awhile, 6 squares done. I still love the look of this.
Tabard Tunic (NW Diss 2/1/14) - Haven't made a final decision on this yet.

Fortune's Shawlette - 5/20/17 - Finished ball 2    

Knit: 
Learn to Knit Afghan: (started 2010): 3 squares done, I put this in the giveaway yarn bags..not thrilled with colors....will use squares at school for water bottles..
Shark in the Woods (11/27/14)- I really love this, but it's a lot of cabling and I'm not a fan..about 1/2 done.
Vanilla fingerless mitts (12/25/15) - Think I'm going to frog and do different mitts or crochet them.
Zombie Vixen mitts (10/17/15)- why I may crochet the others...have these and still working on them, again cabling

Swinging with Winkle (6/4/16)- I love this so much!  Just need to finish it! Added a few rows
Meandering Top (5/20/16) - Totally forgot about this...could get it done to wear in spring...I think I was debating whether to do the bottom ruffle...it's not a good placement for me...
Multnomah (8/21/16)- stuck on feather and fan edging, have too many stitches, in timeout. Stitch count continues to be off.
Bulky Cowl - this hurts my hands to work on...think I need slippery needles...

Golly Gee..............I like both colors of buttons. How about if you alternate them on the way down?

I admire your tenacity of getting a selfie with the hat on. That is not an easy task but you did a great job of it. I really like the hat too.

I like the gray buttons as it seems they bring out the elephants a bit more and oh how I love those elephants....so cute. Great job on the sweater and all your color work! You were so prolific this week! Good luck on your root canal...I hate dental work....they have to out me out! LOL! I need to do some smaller projects...maybe I would have a few more finishes a little more often. The hat from the shower cake is spot on! Have a good week and I pray you get through the root canal with no pain or discomfort.

That heart beanie really stands out to me. The elephant cardigan is zippy and will match the energy of the baby/toddler.

Far too late, but I love the grey buttons. Love all the hats!
