Yarn Love Challenge

Yarn Love Challenge on InstagramAre you playing along with the Yarn Love Challenge on Instagram?

It’s simple: each day in Feburary, you post a photo on the day’s theme, and tag it. It’s such a fun way to get some yarn-y love (and you know how much I love instagram!).

I started late, so skipped the introduction, but here are my pics from the first seven days I participated:

Yarn Love Challenge Close Up:

You may remember this wee fishy from the pattern I posted recently!

Yarn Love Challenge Currently Making:

I was slogging through the first sleeve of my husband’s Grettir. Now I’m on the second sleeve, and feel like I’ve really made some progress! I’m really enjoying working with the lopi yarn.

Yarn Love Challenge Speed:

Crochet is FAST! I’ve just this minute hung up the finished bunting – I’ll show it to you another time…

Yarn Love Challenge Community:

Ouch, this was a tricky one to post! It’s never easy moving to a new place, and as much as I try to cut myself some slack, it’s hard to feel like Nellie-No-Mates. Good news though: I have found a knitting group, and plan to head along next week!

Yarn Love Challenge Mistakes:

True story: as I was knitting this in the pub, my sister said, “Don’t you make mistakes when you’re drunk?” I said “All. The. Time.” Then I spit-spliced a new ball of yarn… on to the cast on tail instead of the working yarn!

A good time was had by all that night, I’d do it again. I subscribe to the “trotting horse” theory of mistakes: if it can’t be seen from a trotting horse, it’s perfect.

Yarn Love Challenge Stripes:

Oh these socks have such good memories knit into them! I blogged about them here.

Yarn Love Challenge Where I Craft:

 

This one was simple: I craft everywhere!

    Sew a simple face mask (comfy enough to wear every day!)

    In the last six months, I’ve sewed a whole bunch of face masks. Most face masks fit well, but none were perfect. We picked up a couple of ready-made reusable face masks to try out, and J decided he preferred them. The pattern is easy as anything to make – easier than any other pattern […]
