Ohhh . . Friday, the 13th! Watch out for black cats, mirrors and ladders! 🙂
My “on the needles” report is a fun one!
First, I made a striped hat for one of my Loopy Academy projects. It’s Rib-A-Roni. It’s a fun and a quick pattern. My little model wasn’t happy that the hat wasn’t for her and she pulled it down over her face . . in protest!
Nicole finished her hat too. The little model was more enthusiastic about modeling mommy’s hat.
Nicole got her mittens finished and felted but I don’t have a picture of them after felting. They turned out great.
My mittens are finished but not felted yet. I had hoped get them done in MO but didn’t so I’ll try felting in my front load washer.
They’re purple . . not reddish at all like they look here.
One Hermione’s Sock is done. The second one is done down to the heel. I’ll try to get those finished next week.
Nicole and I were making socks using worsted weight yarn and I should get this sock finished today. Worsted weight yarn goes so much more quickly than fingering weight.
How’s that for a lot of projects?

Judy, I have felted many items in my front load washer. You just have to wait a little longer for the door to unlock. I added some Soak or Eucalan. Good luck!
love the caps and mittens, she should never be cold. what is the stitch pattern in the Hermoine socks.
I really like worsted weight socks in the winter but my local yarn shop didn’t carry that much so I have only made one pair. Love the hat model, she has really grown into quite a young lady and in so short a time.

Addie is an adorable hat model! Gosh she has grown!!
I just printed off a pattern for worsted weight socks and have decided to make myself some crazy house socks out of my leftover bits of acrylic worsted weight.

You HAVE been busy, that’s for sure. Love your model for the hats. She is such a beautiful little girl, or should I say lady. She has really grown quickly. Both you and Nicole are doing great with all your knitting projects. You two are so fast. I’m hoping to try some felted mittens soon. At the rate I’m going, I may get to wear them NEXT year. lol
Please keep us posted on your experience felting in a front loader! I love to felt, but haven’t given it a try since I switched to the front loading machine. It does not seem that the agitation of the front loaders is sufficient to properly felt, but having no experience, I can’t say for sure. Would love some tips!

You got a lot of knitting done! Love all your projects. Silly Addie!
Your model for the first hat made me laugh! She is so cute…and funny!
