FO Friday - 5/15/2015

I am getting closer and closer to completing my Loopy Academy projects for this semester:

Not really an FO yet, but I have big news...I threw the slippers and some very hot water into the Wonder Washer today.

After one 15 minute cycle, there still was too much stitch definition and they were still too long for my feet.

After the second 15 minute cycle, they were just right! Now, they just have to dry.

The striped assignment is finished!

Pattern: Stripes, Stripes & Stripes Scarf by Sybil R
Yarn:  The Loopy Ewe Solid Series in Fuschia and Tangerine
Thoughts:  I really liked this pattern and I can see myself making it again.

In non Loopy Academy news, I made something last month and never took the time to show y'all.

Pattern: Downton Cowl by Christy Becker
Yarn: Mrs. Crosby Hat Box in Summer Blooms. It was my reward for completing Camp Loopy Last summer.
Thoughts: This yarn is awesome. I loved knitting with it. It's a merino, cashmere and silk blend...lovely. The pattern was a fun, quick knit too.

The mottled-color ways are not my favorite.

I call them color vomit. The pattern and colorway played well together; so, I am not complaining.

In sewing news, I finished two sets of pillowcases.

I would have more to show you, but lack of housekeeping has reached critical mass at Chez Merry Karma; so, I had chores to do besides knitting and sewing...

MK out.

Such cute stuff! And I love that you got your slippers to felt & fit!

Bright colors! Those mottled colors always look great in the skein, and not so much knitted up. Yours looks pretty good.
