Hi everyone! Guess what's on my needles? Another sweater! and not just any sweater, another So Faded sweater! Why another one? Because I appreciate the simplicity of the sweater, the amazing fit of it, and how it's an easy way to use up those single skeins of yarn!
First, I must show off a little project I recently finished. In my last blog post, I talked about Figaro Frog by Noknitsherlock (Susan Claudino). He is for my mom for mother's day. But I finished knitting two more friends. BonBon bunny-for my youngest daughter's 7th birthday (which is tomorrow-Star Wars Day) and The Voodoo doll for my older daughter. Of course my older daughter is getting it on my younger daughter's birthday. When I was little, I never got presents on my brother's birthday, but it seems to be the thing to do these days!
Just as a reminder, Fiagro Frog is knit with HY DK yarn in an OOAK. I knit Bon Bon with a fingering weight and a sport weight held together. One was an OOAK and the other was called Sprinkles on Tap. Though, both skeins looked practically the same.
Voodoo was knit with a mystery yarn club skein called Midnight Lagoon. Didn't this little guy turn out perfect?! I just love his floppy tuft of hair. To do the hair, I cut 5" bits of yarn and used a crochet hook to loop and knot it on the stitches. I started with just the crown thinking I would give him a mohock, but decided that the tuft is perfect.
Back in January, I finished knitting a So Faded sweater using the 24 mini skeins from last year's advent kit. I've been wanting to make the sweater with an actual fade. For my size, I need just under 1200 yards of yarn-3 skeins of HY. I am using April's Mystery Yarn Club first. I took a sneak peak at May's because a little bird told me it coordinates nicely with April--and it does! So that will come next in the fade and I will finish the fade with Almond Milk. I hope to have the sweater finished by the end of May! Wish me luck!
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting, Brianne
