YOP Week #32

Only 20 more weeks of this YOP year!!!  Can you believe it?  It seems like we just started!  I did have a good week as I "backed up and regrouped" sort of.  I went back to my first year of YOP which was 2012-13 and I found lots of finishes but several unfinished also.   There was this rug that is around here somewhere and as soon as I find it I will finish it.  Remember my 'word of the year' several years ago?  It was "finish".  Well, this is the year....it's just sinking in.  I told you I was slow.  My rug is a mottled cream color solid if I remember correctly.
Then there was this blanket which at the time I could not afford the yarn..........that was when I thought you had to use the recommended yarn......I've "come along way baby"!  I have converted Spud and Chloe sweater yarn colors into KnitPicks Brava worsted yarn colors.   Hopefully, I will be ordering this week!  I know I have other blankets on the go but I am starting from my YOP lists.  This is a blanket that I still adore so I am going to make it and finish the rug and that will strengthen my resolve to move ahead with more finishes.....I hope! :)  This is the Seeing Stars Blanket and is a pay for pattern on Ravelry.
 Now for this week, there are some final finishes!  In the gift category..........the cowl...........finished and ends woven in...there was just a teeny ball of yarn left.  I used 1 skein of Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn, worsted in 5002 Citrus Punch colorway.  I crocheted the 20-row version.  I know this was supposed to be a gift but I don't like the wonky way it looks so I will make another one that quality control won't reject.
 For the charity handwork, I finished the one mitten and have the cuff done on mitten #2
 For me I have been trying to crochet a heart each day until Valentine's Day so I can decorate my tree..........
also for me, I am practicing the feather and fan pattern in a washcloth so I can start my Multnomah  shawl again that uses that pattern at the very end of the shawl. I goofed up last time and had to frog the entire thing!  :(  I'm having no trouble with this feather and fan.........
The only cross stitch I worked on was this....I have to find my reading glasses or else go buy a new pair!  I need them for xs not reading.
 I also mentioned this past week that I am going through recipe and craft books and I am going to use them or pass them on........this first book is The Farmchicks in the Kitchen.  I bought this from Thrift Books.  I made their grandmother's pie crust and I am now a convert!  Next up are their cinnamon rolls.  There are crafts in the book also.

Yesterday I made turkey pot pies with turkey from my freezer (trying to clear out the freezer).  It was excellent!!!  Here's the recipe
 If some of you were wondering why I did not blog yesterday.....I think I was fighting off a bug.  I went the whole day and even took my walk but I was really tired so by 7:30 I turned out the lights and slept until 5:30 this morning.....never waking up once! 9 hours of sleep! I was exhausted evidently!  I think I might skip Saturday blogs anyway because Sunday is YOP.  We'll see.  Tonight is the Oscar's....not sure I can stay up for them! LOL!
Happy Trails!!!

  1. I admire you for going back to your original YOP list to see what you need to finish. Hopefully you will find the rug so it can be finished. The Multnomah shawl is the first one I ever made. I struggled since I had only done knits and curls so YO and K2tg were very scary for me way back then.

    You have inspired me to pull out my cookbooks and go through ALL of them and then decide who stays and who goes.

    1. Yes, I was not a "seasoned" knitter when I tried the Multnomah so hopefully I will do better this time. I have way too many cookbooks for sure!!! Good luck!

  2. Yes I missed you yesterday! Your Pot Pie looks great! I saw a shawl pattern by Annies Design....I might have to do that one it is crochet...I have to find the right yarn...some with Merino, Yak and silk so I must go yarn shopping! I hope you are having a good Sunday the sun is out here and it is about 20 something degrees:)

    1. Oh, to be missed is quite an honor. My daughter called too in the afternoon when I usually blog and it was a long conversation and by the time I got off the phone I was toast and it was late so I decided to pass and just eat and go to bed!
      Oh, yarn shopping? How fun! I have been looking at Knitpicks yarn which is reasonable priced but they are out of some colors so I will call them today and see how soon they restock. I hope you find what you are looking for as Yak is not plentiful and when you find it it may be pricey. Not sure though. I can't wait to see it!

  3. You had a busy week, you obviously needed the sleep. The Oscars are being shown here at 8.30ish am so I will watch them and will be doing a month’s worth of ironing. I noticed on another blog a survey a UK University is doing on knitting so thought you may find it interesting. https://reading.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/science-not-fluff

    1. I should see if they are taped an don You Tube maybe. I have ironing to do today but I couldn't do a month's worth at once unless I took a lot of breaks! LOL! I took the survey. It was strange as if they were looking for people who were depressed.....not me! I am blessed with a glass half full temperament. It was interesting though. Thank you!

    2. They are thinking of prescribing knitting or crochet as an anti depressant in the UK, so there are studies and I think the idea is if you knit you are less depressed.

  4. Your turkey pot pies look so good! After so many nights of coughing, I have felt tired today. Your feather and fan practice looks great! And, I am loving the little hearts!

    1. I bet you are tired! Coughing in the night is the worst! I hope you have some good cough medicine so you can get some good sleep! I will say a prayer for you to get well! That pot pie was good and it didn't require anything 'processed' like cream soups or the like. It was delish!

  5. Now that's a good idea - to go back to those earlier YOP lists - back when I made lists. I'm a little afraid, though, I'd be disappointed over what I've never tried that I once thought looked like a good idea. Glad you were able to catch up on sleep, Sam. Here's hoping you warded off some bug with that.

    1. What bothered me was the fact that I was following everyone else's projects and not heeding my own! There have been so many patterns I have fallen in love with and yet I don't do them and instead do some that I am not even that crazy about. I want to become more discriminating so that I only choose projects that really thrill me and give me joy.

  6. I see you are getting lots of spam comments - so annoying when that happens. I love that you went back to your old yop lists. I did this too recently which is why I knit my twizzler socks! I hope you find the missing rug! You always impress me with all the different things you do. I don't cross-stitch - it is just tooooooo hard on the old eyes. I do like that dishcloth pattern though - I may have to look it up.

    1. I keep wondering why I am getting all these comments regarding "love spells"? Is someone trying to tell me something? LOL! That rug is in my craft room which is a mess and will have to be "unearthed" and straightened up to find anything in there! But after the bedroom which should get finished today then will come the hallway and then the crafts room! Yay! Big mess but it will be fun to unearth all kinds of interesting and crafty things!

  7. You were definitely missed yesterday. I was a bit worried because it's so unlike you to not post. You must have needed that sleep. Your pot pie looks delicious. I made a chicken pot pie yesterday that looks very similar to you.
    The mittens are turning out great! You're a pro now. :-) I think you've mastered the feather and fan pattern too. Mutnomah will be on your needles soon.
    I bought a sweaters worth of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes yesterday for a sweater for Dennis. He loves the one I made him last year from Hobby Lobby's I love this Wool, but they have only 6 colors to choose from and they're all pretty similar to the one I already made him. Knit Picks had so many options.
    Take care my friend.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

    1. I felt bad about not blogging but my daughter called and I didn't get off the phone until late and I was so tired. I too have been looking at Knit Picks for yarn for that 17 color Seeing Stars Blanket. I was going to do wool but not very practical for washing. I can't wait to see what you picked for Dennis's sweater!
