Challenge; mountain heather scarf

Okay. So I changed my mind again- my stitch count got ten kinds of messed up on the chevron and I decided it had been a good run. Before I stopped chevron, I frogged the 91 chains and changed the pattern by half. It went well for like twenty rows then went to hell.
SO! I went back to my original plan and retried the windowpane scarf, after fighting with my chain for a few moments I got it to work and am happily working on my new scarf (people at work are envious!)

Right now my progress is about the size of my crochet hook. What you’re about to see is my second beginning- the first was using an H hook and this one is using a G. It’s more open than I would like, but I suppose it’ll do I’m sick of restarting projects.

   
 

UPDATE! Day two: Mountain Heather lace chevron scarf! (wrap?)

Going to try to get into the rhythm of doing updates and stuff after a long day of working on a project, and here is my first of many. As you know, I started this  wrap (scarf?) last night.

After an hour of placing stitch markers and adjusting my tightness on my foundation chain, I finally got what I needed 91 Single Crochet all in a row. Let me tell you, I forgot the pain that is that initial chain. In the spirit of being fed up with it after having too few one too many times, I tried to learn the foundation single crochet.

In theory, I  understand how to maneuver the yarn and the hook to make it work. But, in application…Suffice to say I failed. I got angry and just resumed quietly making chains and tediously trying to make sure sure I was on the right track.

I went to bed, fairly sure, but not certain. I woke up and eventually got a chance to check again to make sure there were no magically added chains to make me angry and ruin my good day (a day spent being productive, and also having a dream shattered. I needed some good news). Lo and behold!  The perfect number of stitches!

Anyway, steering off of that tangent, I got to work on this scarf/wrap/whatever. As I slowly progressed, I counted carefully and before moving on to the next row I ran across the one just completed to make sure my repeats are as they should be, as that’s the case- I’ve not gotten too far, but I have gotten to the point where I can just kind of repeat two rows over and over forever so that means I can take it to work and drone it out on autopilot.

Anyway! The point of this update is this photo~

Ah yes! Progress. I’m not IN LOVE with the colors, but I think as it grows it will look better. It’s in it’s awkward stages at the moment, I think.

News:

Hi there, I’m not dead, just under motivated. But, I’ve been making things again like:

And a blue peace sign macrame bracelet that I haven’t posted yet.

I’ve been doing a lot with my new job lately, it requires me, for the time being, to build full webpages and test them extensively. So, I guess I’ve made like 3 websites. Essentially from scratch. But, I’m back, guys. I promise. I’ll be posting pictures and some random little jewelry crafts. I think I’ll play with resin again, since I have some ideas.

I would crochet some scarves or something, but it’s the summer and I don’t have the patience for working with lace weight yarn.

I’ve been drawing again

As you can see, I’ve been keeping busy. I keep forgetting that my name is Wynn of “ALL” trades, and drawing and photography would count as trades. Although I’ve strayed from the original concept of this blog. But it’s expanded, and I suppose that’s a good thing.

Tomorrow, I’ll be out with my best friend, but I should be making a post about something in the next week.~

New on the shop!

Medium Sized Owl Toy- $10

New Additions to the small Owls-$6

As far as crafting stuff goes, today I bought some White Puff balls for when I make bunny rabbits- soon. I got my hands on a hot glue gun and I’m pleasantly surprised. They really do make things easier.

I think I have enough owls now, so I may move to another project and make some different animals. 😀

Not flying Solo anymore :D

Hey there,  guys. I just figured I’d give you the latest update for Wynn of all Trades. I have another author on this blog now, my best friend who’s own crafting blogs fell apart. Which, I can totally get- blogging does take a substantial amount of time. So, we figured that she could simply post on mine and have all the goodness of blogging with out the upkeep.

So, you’ll be seeing another name popping up on your dash, and that’s why. Because I harassed her into blogging again. Her other blog was Strawberry Crafts.

So, just an update mainly to let you know what’s happening on the blog.
