WIP Wednesday: Andrea Mitts

To see more amazing WIPs, visit Tami's.

Today I started test knitting a project:  Andrea Mitts by Perfectio Knits.  I love how the twisted ribbing looks, and I really love this pink yarn!

Groovyghan is still groovin' in the background.  I have begun the final dot square, then onto more stripes!  So far, I am loving it.

Magical Rings Bracelet

Ravelry Project Page
Yarn:  DMC Embroidery Floss
Needles:  Size 1
I made this little bracelet for a challenge in the Weekly Mini Knit Alongs group on Ravelry.  It was a quick and easy project that kept my hands busy during some stressful days at work.  I don't love the bracelet, but it was fun to make :)

FO Friday: Rosie Headband

To see more fabulous FOs, visit Tami's Amis.

I knit the Rosie Headband as part of a challenge in a Ravelry group.
It was knit with size 5 needles with random pink Craigslist yarn.
The group is Weekly Mini Knit Alongs and it is super fun.
Each challenge lasts one to two weeks.  
There are both crochet and knit patterns in each challenge.
I won this challenge with my hot pink headband.
I chose a jewelry theme, and the new challenge is now in full force.
There is still time to join in.
Hop over to the current mini ckal and join us!

Weekly WIPs are Groovy!

I know...I am late for WIP Wednesday, but I still want to participate. 

Here is my progress on the Groovyghan.
I am just about finished with the second section and have been weaving most of my ends in as I go.
 In the beading realm, I have started a bracelet. 
 I was inspired by a challenge on the Dover website and chose a pattern from one of their fair isle knitting books to use in a loom bracelet.
I also entered a coloring contest through the Dover website.  I will post pictures of my coloring sheets soon.

Hope you are enjoying your WIPs and remember to check out Tami's blog for more WIP fun.

Dreamcatcher Fence

This year we decided to make a more creative fence for our peas.  My husband built the basic structure with sticks from our curly willow.  Then he had a great idea for the strings.  Each section of the fence has a different pattern.  Some strings are vertical and some are horizontal.
 In the middle, my husband asked me to weave a dreamcatcher.  I used this website to learn the basic stitch and created a dreamcatcher fence.  I even added a bead and a feather like the site suggests.
 I think it turned out really well.
Hope the peas like it :)
