I really haven't finished much this past week as far as the number of projects go. That is because I have been working on one MAIN project and that is the poncho that I had to frog and re-start. I did complete one crocheted hat and need to work on a knitted hat.
The hat in the first photo is the Bojangles Hat. The pattern is in the book titled "Morehouse Farms Merino Knits" by Margrit Lohrer and I am using Yarn Bee's Ashley wool/poly mix yarn in the Cloudy colorway. I started it a couple of months ago and each time I work on it, I get only about 4 to 6 rows done on it. The hat is worked on double-pointed needles and I'm not too crazy about working with those. They get in the way of each other. I'm going to wind up buying a couple of size 9 circular needles so that I can get the hat done. I'll have to check my stash of needles first to see if I do have them before I go buy extras that I may not actually need.
I know that one of my goals for 2016 was to finish the poncho that I had already started about 3 or 4 months ago. Well, my NEW goal for the poncho is to finish it as a re-started project. I had made so many mistakes on it I just had to frog it and start over. My last blog post has a photo of the poncho after I had worked on it for just a few days and shows that six pattern repeats are completed. In the photo for this blog post, it shows that I have completed 14 pattern repeats. I am also working on the neckline decreases and will soon be at the mid-way point. I have come pretty far on the poncho in only six days. I must admit that I have had to back up on the poncho two times because of a mistake in the large cable and the other mistake being that I started out the decrease rows incorrectly. All in all, this project is coming along fairly well.
Over the past couple of weeks, I crocheted 6 hats. The photo in the middle is the brown hat that I made about five days ago using the camel stitch and double-crochet stitch. These hats have been very easy and quick to make. I can finish one in about 4 to 5 hours depending on if I use just one kind of stitch or a combination of stitches.
