Things I Made Lately - Early 2016

Hi guys, I haven't been doing any sewing yet this year, though I'd like to! I made these crocheted dolls, using the Yoda and Storm Trooper patterns from this book I got for Christmas. I found the BB-8 pattern on Etsy.

The Storm Trooper is a little fuzzy and more loosely shaped since she already had to take a ride in the washing machine. Yoda's cute jacket is killing me - they did a particularly great job with that pattern.

This is the Sleep Season Slouch hat, a free pattern from Fancy Tiger. I used the Madelinetosh Tosh DK yarn in Rain Water. It is such nice yarn to work with, and it looks and feels great. 

I debated adding that hot pink pom-pom. I don't always like pink. But then I realized how easy it would be to cut it off someday if I don't like it. I can either make a different colored pom-pom in about 5 minutes, or just leave the hat plain.

I also finished my sweater! But I don't have it here to take a photo of it. Here's what it looked like several months ago. It's this Daelyn Pullover pattern by Isabell Kraemer. I used the Madelinetosh Tosh Merino yarn in Cosmic Wonder Dust. I love it! 

So, I had worked my ass off to finish it in time to wear it this winter. I wove in my ends, but then I could see one end's lumpy path, like a mole hill, on the front of the sweater. I was unpicking that tail, to re-weave it in, while watching tv. Suddenly, I had pulled too far and made a small hole in it! (sob!) 

My sweater is with Stefanie, and I'm hoping she can repair it. I think it's a simple fix but I just don't have the eye for figuring it out yet. Did one stitch come undone? Two? I honestly can't tell. Hopefully she'll be able to mend it for me, or tell me what to do so I can wear it sometime soon. 

What have you been making this year?
