Too much WIPs

It seems that my craft projects get over with my organizing skills. I have already bet that I wouldn't have that much projects at one time, but I just couldn't be not me. On the other side these days I learnt a lot about my crafts. 
Do you remember to my big crochet circle? I started to unravel it, because after eating 600 yards of DK weight yarn it hasn't reached the desired measurements. The other thing why I wasn't satisfied with it, that I didn't like batik yarn crocheted on this way. Anyway I have to tell, that it wasn't an easy decision to stop, but who likes unravelling that much work... Now I started a very simple crochet bag using granny squares. My idea of turning a big circle into a bag is still live in my mind, but I have to find a thicker yarn to make it.

On Sunday I started something wearable for me. It will me a little sweater for the hot summer days. I don't follow any pattern. I hope that I won't regret my yarn choice. I am using Catania, which I haven't used before for wearables nor knitting. Have you ever knitted something wearable with mercerized cotton? Do you think is it good for clothes?

The third fiber work I am on is a little blanket /or a big pillowcase/ to use up a few skeins from my stash. I don't know how many squares I can knit with these skeins, I hope they will be enough for a small blanket. If not, it will be perfect for a pillowcase.

I am still working on those handpainted pillows. I designed an owl stencil. Finally I made a very simple pattern, that seems enough easy to brush along, but still cute. I can't wait to show you the finished owl pillow!
Here are some peaks:

Yes, it will be a huge owl! It measures 20".

Wish you happy creating!

  4. Your squares a looking gorgeous. Love the colours.
    That cotton should be good for wearables as it doesn't stretch like other cotton yarns.
    Enjoy your owl project.

  6. Love the blue, yellow and white color combination! Can't wait to see how your owl pillow turns out. I need to get a project started. I usually only stick to one at a time or else I lose interest and never finish :)
