YoP - Frogged


I was enjoying that hot water bottle cover so much, but what this silly cookie forgot to do was modify it to the size of her own hot water bottle, at first I though it was a bit short and I could fix it by adding more rows to the length...but no, turns out my water bottle is too wide for it as well. *sighs*
Determined to finish it and possibly just use it as a pyjama bag, and then start that project all over again and modify it to my liking...at least I can say I know how it goes (then I can share that pattern)
If you would like to see the hot water bottle cover it is in my WIPW post, so you can check it out there if you like.

I have started my second YoP but it has to stay a secret, as it is a christmas present.....but I am going to show you a close up, to show you how it is looks with that gorgeous wool I got the other day.


This is using Vanna's Choice, and the colour is mustard....it is a very nice wool to work with and it feels really soft and defined!

That is me for today I think, can't wait t see everyone elses blog to read! You will find people participating in Year of Projects on Ravelry and  When Did I Become a Knitter's blog, so check them out!

  1. Mums the word on the secret project. Love the color! Sorry bout the frogging, I just frogged one of mine as well. Very frustrating. Love the idea of the jammie bag. It could be decorative and be like a little pillow on your bed!

  4. I love your hot water bottle cover and bizarrely after saying what an inspiration it was last week, I see you are doing a snake too, when I saw that on Attic 24s blog I thought I would like to have a go. Maybe you should let me know everything you intend to make and I can start adding them to my list now! Good luck with your re-sizing this week, hope allgoes according to plan.

  5. Great mustard color for the Fall! Your double crochet sts look so neat and even. What kind of hook do you use? Do you hold it like a pen or knife?

  6. I am totally sympathetic with the frogging, it is something I know all too well. Hopefully once you work out the pattern and start going again you'll probably work it up faster then before, minus the mistakes.

    I adore the yarn you're using for the secret project, it gives such stitch definition! The colour is beautiful and it looks very soft :)

  7. Really like the Mustard color. Looks so warm and inviting. Can't wait to see what it is going to be.

    Sorry to hear about the Hot bottle holder. But you now have a great pajama bag.

  8. Vanna's Choice is very nice yarn to work with isn't it? I did an afghan in it and really enjoyed it!

  9. That's a shame about your hot water bottle cover - it looked so good too. I'll look forward to seeing your pattern a bit later. That Vanna's yarn looks lush and lovely - from what I've seen on the internet, there are a great range of colours too. Wish we had yarns like that here in Australia.

  10. Now I want to know what your secret project it! I love secret projects! The color is great! I wanted to make some thing for my home with that color, but couldn't really find it in stores. A well, maybe I should first de-stash a bit :p.
