Doodle-head Stitches Episode 29

Little Bit of Everything

Thanks for watching!

Show Notes

Knitting
  • Geek socks - using Knit Knot Studios Half Hitch sock yarn in the Once Upon a Time colorway, with contrasting heels and toes in Seven Sisters Arts Meridian yarn, Huggin colorway; first sock is finished, and the second sock is just started
  • Portulaca Cardigan - first sleeve is finished, and the second sleeve is just started
  • Benton by Veronica Parsons - using Miss Babs Sojourn yarn in the Berlin colorway, a couple of pattern repeats complete, yarn is a delight to knit, so soft
  • Cladonia by Kirsten Kapur - using Dragonfly Fibers Pixie yarn in the Titania and District 12 colorways, a little over halfway through the number of stripe repeats, but that doesn't mean I'm halfway through this shawl, a very easy and relaxing pattern to knit so far
Quilting
  • Over the Rainbow -added a few more hexies to third green block
  • Pet Bowl Placemats - finished quilting and binding, and they are ready to be used
Crochet
  • Sock Scraps Granny Square Blanket - added one new square using the yarn I'm knitting in my Geek Socks
Cross Stitch
  • Pumpkin Patch Pillow - working on the right side, finished most of a little pumpkin
  • Egyptian Sampler -  worked a little more on border motifs and on the top center and right motifs
  • Wild Pink Cat - new start!
Stash enhancement

For those who are interested, today's nail polish is Zoya in the color Dillon.

Happy crafting all!
