Year of Projects: Week 15


Its Monday. I know. But I wanted a serious project update on my Cardi B project. I finished the ribbing on both the sleeves today! I am in the homestretch on the project and will finish before the end of the week! If I don’t get too sidetracked, I could finish tomorrow or Wednesday! I even wove all my ends in this morning. Here’s some pictures.

Our Thanksgiving was just the 4 of us. I made, as always, a plethora of side dishes. This year I made my first Sweet Potato Pie (long time fan) and a Challah (which I haven’t made since before my daughter was born). We decorated our tree this weekend. The kids did a good job. I haven’t taken any pictures of it, but the spouse did.

My daughter and I put together an epic pom-pom wreath. I still need to get some wired ribbon before I hang it up, here’s the post.

Lastly, I’ve made a couple hats to send to a friend’s baby. A little crochet Baby Zissou hat (ala the Life Aquatic), and an Elmo topped hat! The Elmo hat is a Lion Brand Sesame Street One Hat Wonder “kit”. I made my in the round, but followed (more or less) the instructions on the ball band. The yarn is really SLIPPERY. After a wash, it is slightly less slippery. I plan on getting these in the mail this week. Not as a Christmas gift, but as a just because it’s getting cold gift.

Baby Zissou and Elmo.

Almost forgot, I delivered the stockers to my friend. She loved them.

That’s everything I worked on this week. Next week I will have a finished Cardi B to share and at least something new started!!

    1. I’m super fortunate to have a spouse that shares the household chores 50/50 with me! He is hands down the ONLY reason I ever get anything accomplished. No lie. Also, my kids are still young and go to bed at 7pm!


    1. I’m STILL stuck on the button bands. My vision is way less clear here than it was for the rest of the cardigan. I knit the one side 3 times already and I am still not satisfied.


    1. Seriously, Sweet Potato pie is BETTER than pumpkin pie!! I used my immersion blender and made it SUPER smooth!
      My daughter is asking me to make MORE pom-poms. Hopefully I can distract her with making cookies instead!

    1. We defrosted the loaf in the freezer and used half of it to make french toast casserole for dinner. SOOO good!
      I wish it was chilly enough to actually wear my cardigan indoors!
