More FOs!

I recently bought more of the Karabella Aurora 8 yarn, which I just LOVE, and knew I had to make something special… So here it is! My Red Velvet Cowl, perfect for winter and a remembrance of my favorite type of cake!

I am also working on a Cabled Hat, still working on my Pickachu hat, as well as a pair of convertible mittens for my bf’s birthday. I promise to get more pics and updates in the oncoming weeks as I have finally settled into college life at CU Boulder!

Here are some other things I have finished recently.

Wondering what I’ve been doing lately?

Well, just in case you were… Here are some pics of my most recent projects!

I’m also working on a Girly version of the Pikachu Hat. Meaning this one will be lighter and have a bow on the ears, as well as light pink cheeks (for a “blushed” look). I’m also making a couple of cute little owl toys from this free pattern as Christmas prezzies. And some more baby stuff coming up soon! Hope you enjoyed the pictures and I’ll be updating more now that I’m settled into college life here 🙂
