Mystery Beanie CAL

Not too long ago I participated in a mystery crochet a long from Ashley’s Design Corner, pattern later revealed as the Ashley Beanie. The CAL lasted for 3 days, and only part of the pattern was released each day. I was surprised at how fast I was able to work up the beanies. They turned out amazing. I created two adults and one toddler/kid size beanies. I love the texture and how colors really pop. I used Red Heart Unforgettable, Mosaic, and a special yarn I found in my stash.

Not Knitting… CAL #3

I participated in another CAL last fall through  A Crocheted Simplicity‘s event. I picked two gorgeous patterns to do, but ran out of time and only completed one. The Purl Illusions Slouch, I used Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Polo… it is gorgeous. Don’t be afraid of Unforgettable, it is froggable as long as you take your time and go slowly. Luckily I didn’t have an issue and didn’t have to frog or rip out. Its a beautiful yarn and this is possibly my favorite colorway of Unforgettable.

This is a beautiful hat, the pattern is really easy to follow though the finished hat looks extremely complicated it really isn’t. I’m looking forward to making more of these. I am wondering how it would look using some Knit Picks Chroma.

 

Jumping In Head First, #2 CAL

For the second CAL, or Crochet-A-Long I actually made 3 items… 2 of the Little Textures Beanies (using Simply Soft and a special clearance yarn I found at Hobby Lobby), and the Bonnie Bell Cowl (using Aurora Borealis yarn), patterns by Two Brothers Blankets. Again I played with color and texture. I loved how my son’s blue hat turned out, the blues really make his blue eyes vibrant. I was worried about the red not being my color, but the pictures were awesome. It was a whirl wind of trying to get it all done in a small amount of time, but they worked up quickly.
