YOP Week #2





I started off week #1 with a finish and I have another one for week #2!  I hope I can keep this up for the whole year! Yeah, right! LOL!
Here's my second finish for this year..............the cell phone cover for my daughter as one of her Advent gifts.  I think it turned out cute.  It was easy and quick so if any of you are looking for gifts to give this is a good one.  You wouldn't have to use those colors.  It was in the Boho Crochet book.

I started Candy Kisses (on Ravelry) only about 7 times!!!  I found the pattern and even her tutorial to be very confusing but I must be the only one as all the comments were how easy it was and how clear her instructions were! Huh?  Betsy Queen took a stab at them and she had no  problem either so it must be me!  I finally rewrote her instructions in a manner I could understand and tried again.  I know there are mistakes and there is a little buckle in the middle but I'm forging ahead.  I love the yarn but the only problem is that when I tried to undo my crochet to start over it kept knotting and I couldn't undo it so much yarn was thrown away.   Hopefully, I'll have enough to finish.  This is not a pattern I would use again.

Now, on the bright side, I am LOVING the Brill shawl.  I love the Quince yarn for sure and the pattern for the edging is adorable!  I am really loving the knitting even though it is not T.V. watching knitting but the process is very enjoyable.   When this is done I am going to do more of the edging to tack to my shelves.  I love it that much!  I have 5 complete patterns out of 33 to complete the border of the shawl. So, I have 28 more of 14 rows each to finish.  Wouldn't that make the cutest shelf edging?  Another rabbit hole I would like to go down right now but I won't.  I promise!  I am enjoying having some finishes and I already have one lined up for next week!
    For Jolly July I have been working on Chicken Joy................a free pattern by The Real Housewives of Cross Stitch........

I did work on a few other projects but not enough to photograph.  I ordered some needed supplies for the Mexican tray project, and I cut fabric for Amy's Frida Kahlo basket only to realize I didn't have enough so I was able to find more and I ordered it.  
I did get some "treasures" this week.................some Stylecraft Special DK acrylic yarn
The first pattern of 12 in a mystery SAL through Fat Quarter Shop by Lori Holt................

Some undyed sock yarn for me to dye!
My 4th of July sock yarn.........these are both from Knit Picks
and then these beautiful minis from Hue Loco........slowly accumulating minis for a project way down the road.....

That's all for this week.  I had a good, balanced week with regular chores, some outdoor progress and indoor too.  I hope you had a good week and stay safe!
Happy Trails!!!

  1. Another finish and a Holiday gift to boot, you are my hero!
    With that list it does seem like you've had a very balanced week. Sometimes you just have to put a pattern in your own words, I've had that problem myself. Unfortunately I can be a bit left brained when it comes to written patterns..lol
    I'm hoping to start a cross stitch pattern this week and pull out a wip that's about half done. Thanks so much for sharing and I love your progress.

    2. My name is sharon smith, i live in UK. My life is back!!! After 2 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids, I felt like ending it all.I came across several testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and also spell to get a good paid job so on. He is amazing, i also came across one particular testimony, it was about a woman called Vera, she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 24 hours, and at the end of her testimony she dropped his email.After reading all these, I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 24hours, my husband came back to me. We resolved our issues, and we are even happier than ever. DR LOVE0 you are a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man.

  2. That Brill shawl would make fabulous shelf edging. That's another art form lacking in this modern era...shelf edging. The cell phone holder is adorable. Congrats on the finish. Love the 4th of July sock yarn. It will work up so pretty in any pattern you choose. What color will you be dyeing the other yarn?

  6. A successful week both in your FO, new projects and your acquisitions. I love the Hue Loco yarns, they are too expensive for me to buy and risk also having to pay duty on them. If I do go to Michigan next April for a wedding then I will maybe treat myself to some, but we shall have to see how the Covid situation goes.

  15. Sam left me this comment on my blog.
    BTW, I cannot use my old blog anymore...long story and I can't edit it. So, I have been forced to create a new one and the address is www.samsserenityacres.blogspot.com For some reason all of sudden it wouldn't let me reset my password for my old email so that's life. At least I still have all my posts out there. But no one knows unless they have a blog and then I can notify them. I hate starting over...I'm getting too old for that! LOL!

  16. I love the edging, I did some crochet trim once and pinned it to the wall to put my earrings in. There might be better storage solutions but hardly more Victorian times looking ones. LOL. The yarn is lovely.

  22. S.I.A.,, how wonderful that you can crochet,, a talent I fail in... well,,, I can crochet simple dish rags,, and I have crocheted some Afghans,, that re a repetitive stitch...
    But that's the extent... someday,,, when my attention spans slows down,, maybe I will learn... in the mean time I will enjoy your crocheting skills... Have a wonderful day.
