Well it is Wednesday again and I am posting about a wip. Yep, definitely something wrong.
I have made good progress on the Coffee Stripe Scarf. I would say I am about half way done. I don’t think I will make it the 72 inches as called for in the pattern. I think I will stop at 60 or a little more. I have finished the row of bone that you see here, added another row of the coffee stripe, and just started a row of solid coffee.
I started and finished a hippie beanie for my daughter. She liked Martin’s Hippie Beanie so I made her one too. I think I might make one for myself too. I also might do some adjustments to the pattern. The crown on both previous hats have had a cone like top for the first five rounds then it rounds out like a usual beanie. I will try to figure it out.

Moving on to the frog. The yarn used was even green. lol
I found a pattern to make a hat like the one’s worn by Mario in the popular Nintendo game Super Mario Brothers. I followed the pattern to the letter. I counted my stitches carefully. I used stitch markers to mark the start of the repeat this step four times around type of instructions. I got it all finished and it did not look like a Mario hat to me at all. So I ripped the whole thing out. I will study up on the pattern some more. It suggests that you keep your stitches tight and use stiffer yarns. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Paddy Green. It was soft and pretty loose. I did try to keep my stitches as tight as I could though. We will see I may give it another go.
I also picked up the second sock and did three rows of the cuff.
