I was wondering around Hobby Lobby the other day and came across about a dozen skeins I wanted to purchase just because they were pretty. I was good and exhibited self control. I only left with the two colors I went in to get. Let me tell you, it was a miracle I did not leave with more. If I had more disposable income than I do, I would have left with every color I could get my hands on. My name is Jessica, and I'm a yarn-aholic.
When I first started this blog, I thought I would be posting way more about my projects. It's been a little over a month, and I've only made a couple of posts about them. I decided to post the round up of all the projects I've completed in February. (Excluding the ones from Snow Much Fun Day.)
After posting the last dinosaur hat I made, I had a request for a purple and pink version. I love when parents purchase dino hats for their girls. I don't know why, but it's one of my favorite things. The pattern for the base hat can be purchased on Ravelry. Check out earlier posts for the link to the spikes.
I also love coffee cozies. They are so quick to make up and make fun little gifts. We make them in all different colors with and without embellishments.
The next was this little number. I am absolutely obsessed with earwarmers. I want one in every color in every style I find. I was searching for something a little different and found this pattern via Pinterest. I fell in love with it. I did have to modify it a little. I like a tighter stitch so I used an H hook rather than the I it says to use. It didn't seem to change much.
Here are my beautiful baby sisters modeling the multi-colored ones I made for them. Today was the perfect day to model and keep their ears warm.
Finally, the big kahuna. The one that has taken me all month to complete. The one that received 60+ likes on Facebook. The one that I am most proud of…
This is the biggest project I have ever undertaken. I was completely overwhelmed and in love with the final project. If it hadn't been made for someone specific, I would have kept this forever. It is my most favorite thing I have ever made.
And just for grins, here is the newest addition to my coffee cup collection. How can you resist a red polka dot mustache? My family enables me!
