Random bag

The story behind this mystery thing is that it was going to be a backpack, then I didn't finish it and I found it sitting in a pile, so I decide, "To heck with a backpack, I'm just going to knit until the yarn is gone!!"

So I did. Now the bottom is wider than the top and there are 3 handles and a couple of crochet rows around the top.

You know, because knitting.

Cthulhu

Pattern: Elder-on-the-shelf
Yarn: Cascade 220

This was what I made for my Swapetition partner!

Here's Cthulhu's butt.

 Hanging out.

Tentacles!

It's watching you.
The kids loved playing with it and requested their own. Maybe some day.

Doggie Hoodie

Pattern: Hoodie Dog Coat
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft

 The instructions are pretty confusing. I recommend reading the notes on the Ravelry projects.



Butin necklace

For my birthday, I bought myself a kit for making a necklace. Here it is!

Kit: Butin Collar by Nelkin Designs


Potato Chip Scarf

Margaret bought me this yarn for my birthday. And I had no idea what to do with it. So it's a potato chip scarf now.

Pattern: Potato Chip Scarf
Yarn: Red Heart in Bonbon Print

It's spiral-ly.



Fox hat

I just realized that I hadn't posted pictures of Linda's fox hat and tail from Halloween!

Pattern: Woodland Fox Baby
Yarn: Some acrylic similar to Red Heart Soft.

Hat:


You can sort of see the tail pinned to the back of her pants.

We pinned the tail on the mai tai for the ward Trunk or Treat.

Swapetition!

I participated in the Savvy Girls Podcast Swapetition! I'll share what I knit for my partner in the next post, but here's what I got in the mail today!

A beautiful box!

With a scarf in it!

And lots of yarn!
