Wow! That Was A Quick Project!

Hello my blogging friends! How are you doing? Still keeping your distance and wearing your mask? Are you keeping busy while inside, like cleaning or crafting? I am still crafting and have recently worked on a couple of projects that have been pretty quick.

Dissent Cowl by Carisssa Browning

As soon as my yarn arrived, I began working on the Dissent Cowl in hopes that I would finish by Election Day to honor the late Justice Ginsberg. I am happy to say that I finished it the day before. I washed and blocked it, and since I blocked it flat, it was still damp on Election morning. But when I went out that afternoon, I still wore it. Along with my pearls because it was unusually warm in Michigan that day and I ended up taking it off. This pattern knitted up pretty quickly and I enjoyed it. The yarn was Yowza minis from Miss Babs in colorway Mad Hatter and Ebony.

Spiced Cider Hat by Lindsay Potter

I then worked up this Spiced Cider Hat pretty quick, too. This was the October Seed Packet kit from the Yarn Garden in Charlotte, Michigan. The yarn for the hat is from Adelaide Fiber Company in Ada Super Bulky and colorway Apple Smash. At first I was not fond of the color of the skein. But after rolling it into a ball, it grew on me. As I knit with it, I was reminded of smashed apples I had seen at the Cider Mills. The yarn is super soft and the added Furreal Pom was the perfect finish.

Nec(k)tar Cowl by Lindsay Potter

This super cute project is from my November Seed Packet kit which I just received. The yarn from Northern Bee Studio is so beautiful! It is Little One in colorway “My Sedum Brings All The Bees To The Yard”! Love the name!! First I had to knit 3 Icords. How have I never knitted I-cords before? I loved making them and I can see myself making cute little embellishments in the future! The icords will be made into 3 cute flowers with some wooden buttons for centers that were included in the kit. I should be finished with this cowl in the next day or 2.

Dark Queen of the Seas by Autumn Lane Stitchery

My evenings have been spent stitching on the Dark Queen of the Seas and I am still hoping for a mermaid (chances are slim that it is a mermaid) but I am still hoping. I am stitching this one on 16ct Aida Iris by Fabrics by Stephanie. Loving this and should be all caught up before the next section comes out December 1.

As you can see, I am still keeping busy. Much of it has been sitting as I spent the last 4 weeks with back issues. It is still sore, but it is much better and continues to improve each day. I was even able to go to a local lake on Saturday and walk quite a distance and see an amazing sunset with my sweetie ❤

What projects have you been working on? Are they quick? Are they for Holiday gift giving? I’d love to hear all about them 🙂

  1. Your knitting is all so pretty.
    I think there will be a Mermaid, the tail will come down under the fish.
    Still working on a bin of UFO finishes.

  2. Beautiful knits, Ginny! I’m a fan of your Dissent cowl now – with the black and the various colors underneath, it’s just gorgeous! I too would like the Dark Queen to be a mermaid; fingers crossed. Hope your back gets better soon.
