No Needle Knitting

My arts & crafts blog – by Curtis Rogers

Light blue baby blanket

finished this in a couple of weeks:) I used two strands of acrylic yarn in light blue and very light blue in a linen stitch and a size K hook. The border is one row in single crochet then a row of double crochet then a single row of single crochet. 

   
    
    
   

Lamb’s Pride Scarf

I was able to finish this beautiful scarf in only two evenings. I used two skeins of Lamb’s Pride in this wonderful shade of blue. The stitch is a linen stitch.

2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

First time blocking

Here’s a shawl I made and decided to block it because of the border work:) turned out pretty nice! I did not use a pattern. It’s essentially a half granny square. Very easy to do if you can do single, double, and treble crochet. 

   
    
   

Hats for comparison…

So I decided to make a hat for a 10 year old using this adult small pattern but then decided it was too big so instead of using the 6-10 year old pattern which is one size smaller, I simply used a 5.0 mm hook instead of 5.5 mm hook and the same adult small pattern. So now I think this hat would be better suited to a young adult hat size.

Child’s donegal hat

Here is a child’s hat (6-12 months) I made with hand dyed Monte Donegal yarn made of alpaca and merino wool using this pattern.


  

Hat for me!

Finally took a break from making gift hats and made one for myself using Mochi Plus yarn and this pattern for size adult-medium. I also used my new larger size Clover pompon maker! It really makes the best ones:)


Mochi plus hat

This is a hat I made for a one-year-old using this pattern for 12-24 months in half double crochet. I used the entire skein of Mochi Plus Violets Rainbow yarn and turned out really great! Another gift finished:-)

And here’s a photo of Jin in his new little birthday hat!
