i thought id update you on my work in progresses
i am currently on 16 of 100 mini xmas tree stockings, and im currently on 2nd of 50 for bauballs and also jumbo stocking making my original design that was embroidery work put on top of the stocking but im not putting names on till the person who wants one made with their names on so leaving that bit blank. Im also making a summer top for made to order its a tunic top, sleeveless top never made one before so giving that a go only just casted on the stitches went wrong first time round, so basically i have at least 4 stock work in progress on the go and of course the test knit which im still yet to work on but thats either here or there. All these progresses im working on will be available when they are done, i am also taking orders for jumbo stockings as they take at least 1-2 weeks for 1 to make but if want more than one say 6 for instance will take longer so get the orders in for december 1st so i can start sending them out ready for xmas. 🙂 mix the colours of the 3 red green and white your own personalised name etc etc. your choice.
here are my progress pictures of the stock i am working on.
as always busy with the projects, iv started working on the 2nd crochet sock. to match
i also been working on my personal project my jumper which is doing really well. im still doing the mini xmas stockings which i have done 14 now out of 100. and iv started the xmas bauballs too 1 complete 49 to go lol. so least my stock is doing well so far, iv also been working the test knit sample that i got this design in my head for the normal size xmas stocking i had to get it on needles the only problem i had was getting the amount of cast on’s right but i will show you sneaky peek lol. but over all i think i have about 4 proper projects on the go, 3 are for stock and 1 my personal use jumper for me.
here are the rest of progress pictures.
thought id update you on the knee high socks crochet version
i never ever done this type in crochet before, but have in knit, so i thought id give it a go see how i do on the heel work if theres any difference to the knit version and crochet version, in all honesty i dont feel there is much difference except your using a hook i thought it would be quite difficult to do but its actually easy to do im really happy how this project is forming, i will deffo be doing crochet socks in future for the store. thanks to the lady who designed these socks which are by yarnutopia with her tutorial it helped me loads to make the socks. hopefully in future i be able to make my own designs but im not that clever yet.
here is my progress
heya everyone. hope you all are well.
well iv got 3 lots of projects on the go the obvious ones are the mini xmas stockings, iv done 13 so far on my 14th one, out of 100 so 86 stockings to go on them, so they are coming along nicely.
knee high socks in crochet now feel confident with these, and the test sample of my design that i have in my head that will be on normal size xmas stockings,im working the test sample in the flat to see if my plan works rather than using graph paper.
ooh i almost forgot i been practising doing xmas bauballs too pic shown too (ball) that was a test run ball to see if i can make it, but this will be added to the mini stocking makes.
i better make the most of all these projects cos i gotta have an operation on my wrist/hand once i had the ultrasound scan done i hope its all before 31st thats when i go visit my family and friends.
Here are the progress pics.
ello everyone hope all you lovely lot are doing well.
since my last post i been very busy with the projects have at least 3 on the go 2 knit and 1 crochet.
first one im designing normal size xmas stockings iv completed the jumbo test knit not really sure on that one front is perfect just the back. so the red and green tradition is on the cards for the normal sized xmas stockings. (pic below)
the mini xmas tree stockings are coming along, stripped ones are complete on with the tree design ones at the moment. so love doing these quick easy to make and the colours are fab i feel too. more to follow.
finally crochet knee high socks
iv never really done socks in crochet so i thought id give it a go, i did try using 8 ply yarn for these socks but it didnt feel or look right to me so changed to 4 ply yarn with a 3mm hook. this project breaks up the stocking side of things lol but iv also learned new crochet stitch never done before its called cable crochet must admit i find this way easier than knitted cable ones i practised on. here is the pic of the crochet knee high socks in progress.
Iv been finishing the test knit design I had in my head the only adjustments needed on it was the back only couple tho but im very happy with it. I be doing this type of design on the lower size like large this one im doing is xxl jumbo style 92 cast on stitchez. But I am thinking of lowering the stitch count will see how this turns out then do another test on the large size say 72 cast ons we shall see but over all im happy with my design here are the progress pics
Mini stocking makes continues im setting a target of 100 these will be for sale and will be making different designs of course other than stripes. I was thinking pink and purple to go with traditional blue yellow gold red green and white colours.
I will be taking orders for personalised Jumbo stockings so get your orders in before december so i can have them done on time usually takes 1-2 weeks for one.
Im going away to visit my dad, uncle and bro on 31st july for 2 weeks I prob still be doing more stock even though im on hols lol id end up bored easily knowing me so be taking my tools with me lol.
Here is the progress of my stockings so far 5 down 95 to go lol
