A journey into a self-made wardrobe

Making progress

The holiday season has got to be one of the busiest for me. Between all of the holiday parties and the family gatherings ( all impromptu of course), I feel like I don’t have two minutes to just sit and breathe. However in spite of all of the craziness, I try to find time to do things for myself. So far the Livingston Stole is making great progress. I am halfway through the piece and can’t wait to wear something that I made for myself…finally!!! Here is what it looks like so far…

I know….don’t say it….I have to get better at taking pictures. But until that happens this is what we have to work with.

In true crafter fashion I am already planning my next projects. I am trying to destash in preparation to buy, buy, buy at the Sheep and Wool Festival this year that is held in my town in the spring. I wanted to hit the SAFF (South Eastern Animal and Fiber Fair) this year but I think that I will have to wait until next year for that one. Anyway I think that my next few projects will be socks, since I have a lot of sock yarn in my stash. So get ready for sock knitting posts!

Happy Creating

The Livingston Stole

I have decided to knit from my stash to get ready for the sheep and wool festivals coming up next year. I was looking for a non-garment pattern and came across the Livingston Stole from Creative Knitting Magazine’s Wraps, Capelets & Cowls. I chose to use Yarn Bee, Andes Alpaca 70/30 blend yarn in Cinnamon. I figured I would get more use out of brown than any other color.

I have finished about 5% of this item and only messed up once! Which I didn’t bother to fix by the way (don’t judge me). livingston stole1

I am not sure if this will turn out to be the same as the picture. The one pictured in the magazine seems huge compared to mine, but it is early yet. We will see what happens after it is finished and has been blocked. If you want to see what it looks like in various stages then come look at my Ravelry page.

 

Talk to you soon!
