Advents in April

 Hey Everyone.....How are you?  I am hanging in there.  Well, I have about a billion things on the needles, so what have I been doing?  Thinking about all the advent sets I have.  Last post I showed all the neutral yarn. 

I got 1 in 2022 that I started to crochet a blanket with, but I do not love it.  Then I got 3 sets last year....what was I thinking?  And I have ordered one set this year (for end of year delivery of course).....So, I got some of these sets out to admire and try to decide what to do with them.  I thought all advents kind of faded or somehow meshed into the next color....but with one kit last year, I can see that is not the case.  I got the Yarn Cafe Creations Harry Potter Year 1 Advent.  This is a collaboration with her daughter at Dragon Hoard Yarns.  Cafe Creations did odd number days, and Dragon Hoard Yarns did even number days....but none of these fade or mesh to roll into the next color.....so honestly, I have no clue what I am going to do with this set.  It also came with one full skein (in the middle) in Gryfindor colorway.  I was going to put these in numeric order, but it looked better in dyer order so to the left are 1, 3, 5, 7.....23 and to the right are 2, 4, 6, 8.....24:

I also got an advent calendar from Suburban Stitcher....last year was a pink Christmas and I think this is my favorite....probably because it fades so well.  I even caked it all up and I think I will try to make the Cozy Comfort Throw.

Then I have an Emmas Yarn advent in fingering weight from 2022 and an Emmas Yarn advent in DK weight from 2023.  I think I might try the Sweet Shop Blanket with the DK weight one....but I am not sure.  

I also got some Madeline Tosh Wool & Cotton in the Cold Drip Colorway.  I want to make the Me Time Tee with it

I also worked on this crocheted blanket......I was trying to finish it for my neighbor, whose daughter in law is expecting a girl, but I did not have enough time....I have one skein left before this one is done and it will go in the basket for future baby gifts.

My baby girl is so ready to have my granddaughter......any day now!

Lastly, I want to share that I am 99% sure that Flower thinks the new couch is just one oversized doggy bed.....LOL!  But she is so cute, I do not mind!

That is it.....Have a fabouls week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
