Updates! Crocheting is (Substitute) Fun! Creative Madness!

I have been MIA lately. My left wrist was fucked up, so I stayed away from extra-curricular typing…

And knitting.

It sucked so bad.

For a whole month and a half, I didn’t make ANYTHING. I then re-discovered my love of crochet (and I only use my right hand for that, so…) and started making things again.

I have always been better at crochet than knitting, mostly ’cause I have been crocheting for 13-14 years? But even sp, I never made anything too ambitious. So I am rather proud of myself. I have made so many things. I started back into my hat affair; I have made a shit ton of hats. I plan to sell some in my Etsy shop. I made some cloches, beanies, and also a super-fab hat I am sooo proud of. I have also made some kerchiefs as well. I look awesome in them.

Let’s start with the new yarn purchases and finished objects (this is gonna be a huge post):

And the best for last:

Willy Wonka Fascinator

Willy Wonka Fascinator

I have been getting rave reviews about this, so I put it seperately from the others. I am wrking on fascnator #2. Stay tuned.

That’s all I got for you for my projects.  Moar when I finish this fascinator I’m working on, and the rest of my kechiefs and headbands. I also wanna start something big, like a jacket or a shawl/wrap.

Let the Headband Frenzy Begin!

I finished my headband 🙂

Awesomely amazing, I must say. I am on a headband frenzy, as they look cute on me, and best show off mah haircut. I queued a bunch of headband pattern on Ravelry, but will make up some myself as well 🙂

I think I will peruse the Library of Knitting stitches and find a nice stitch to make another headband tonight 🙂

So Nice, I Had to Knit it Twice…and a New Project!

My mom loved the Vertigo cap so much, I am now making her one in this zebra-esque colorway (Red Heart of course. The Kureyon still eludes me…)

Will take pictures when completed. I really like this pattern, and will make a few more as beanies, since I am rocking my real hair for a change 😛

I plan to make a lot of headgear now.

Speaking of, I am currently working on a headband…and there will be many more to come. My hair is a little above my shoulders, and the front was cut in bangs back in January, and they are now growing out.

Annoying, yes.

I need to have something to keep my hair out of my damn eyes. I actually named the headband I’m working on “Keep My Damn Hair Outta My Face Band” On Ravelry. LOL. I also queued a bunch of other headbands to work on. They are quick, satisfying projects…than I can surely use right now. Heheheheh (pun ABSOLUTELY intended).

I am using the leftover Caron Simply Soft from the Calormetry. I loveeee this colorway! Embroidery, it’s called. So colorful! I hate working with it, though, especially with smaller needles….it splits terribly. Hell, even with the right size needles it was a pain, but not as much. And I am just on the I cord.

Grrr.

Too lazy to take pictures right now. When completed, will take pictures. The headband I should be finished with in a day or so; I plan to work on it a bit tonight. Which will put off the hat a little bit, but *shrug* it’s getting too hot to wear hats anyway, right?

I fear another ‘Zzz’ project on Ravelry….
