100 Days of Making: Day 123

#day123 of #100daysofmaking: I can post this now that it's been gifted to my cousin, a "layette" set of an edged flannel receiving blanket (for which I redeveloped a method of crocheting tiny circles and this time I figured out how to tack them down on two sides so they will stay put better after washing-I will post the pattern and hopefully a video tutorial if YouTube will cooperate on my ravelry page soon), a Newborn Vertebrae sweater in Plucky Primo which was coincidentally the same color as the blanket I chose, and a Checkerwork hat by Vexy in KPPM that I found that matched the other two. Made a cute combo despite no initial intention to make the set match.

100 Days of Making: Day 122

#day122 of #100daysofmaking: Knit pucks order of all the needles! Got a few rainbow wood to slow down some slick yarn projects with silk in them. And I couldn't not order some yarn - Hawthorne in Poseidon. Planning on a sweater vest for my son.

100 Days of Making: Day 121

#day121 of #100daysofmaking: I started a Newborn Vertebrae from the leftovers of some Plucky Primo and while laking it for the 4th, I got to the end of the body. Concerned I may not have enough yarn for the sleeves, I examined it closely to realize I had increased on the front when I wasn't supposed to. I could leave it but probably not have yarn for long sleeves. Or I could rip back to row 6 and increase only in the proper places. Based on pic 2, guess what I did?? What a bummer waste of knitting time.
