To be honest, I knitted this as a balm against this poor Antler Toque, which has been suffering under my hands for a long while.
It has so many tension issues and mistakes, but I have the right tools for it now and I'm determined to finish it, if only for the learning experience. 😤
I knit a thing!!
It's a really chunky knit toque with the biggest ever pom pom (it's also the first pom pom I've ever made, so go me!).
It knits up really quickly, too, this took me less than a day. :) The pattern is here: https://www.knitpicks.com/jillick-hat/g/14691220
It's also so warm, omg

Aaaand embroidery number 3, a green and blue triskele.
Used a split stitch for this one, and I really like how it turned out! Did some accents with blue, not sure if I like how those worked out… I think I know of ways I could have done them better, but ah well, c'est la vie!
Now, what will my next one be…
All right! Say hello to my first ever finished embroidery project. :)
I'm pretty proud of how it turned out for my first try! I really need to work on my chain stitch, though, that crap is haaard…
Also, the signing of my initials and the date could be a bit more legible… I should use fewer strands next time.
But! Progress! Now to figure out what the next one will be…
Finished my first embroidery project tonight; a really quick stitch sampler in the shape of a heart.
I'll post a picture of it tomorrow once it's had time to dry from being washed. ^^ I like how it turned out, even if it is a simple little thing, and I found the process a lot of fun!
