Friday Palette [02.06.15]

I have started a feature called “Friday Palette” where I will post a new picture every Friday with a color palette beneath it. I’m going to create something every weekend that is inspired by that palette and then post what I made every Monday for “Make it Monday”. I’d love for you to join in and link to Khaki & Chrome so I can see what awesome things you have come up with!

Here is today’s palette:

Monthly Knitting Challenge – February

Click here to see the first post about the Monthly Knitting Challenge

February’s knitting challenge category is “poncho”.  I made a poncho many years ago while working at a yarn store in Portland, but I have never made one for myself. And I’m not really sure why.

I chose the pattern “Rosa’s Caponcho” by Emma Fassio and I’ll be using Berroco’s Vintage Chunky, just not sure what color yet. If you would like to knit-along or make your own poncho, link to Khaki & Chrome so I can see what you come up with!

Happy Knitting!

Make it Monday [02.02.15]

Every Monday I will showcase something I’ve made based off of the Friday Palette. I hope you all will join in and tag Khaki & Chrome so I can see all of the awesome things you’ve made!

This week I made a bento bag for my WIPs (work in progress) to keep from making a hot mess of my yarn and needles when I chuck them into my purse. I based the pattern off of one I found at Pretty Prudent.

Favorite Podcasts [Things I Love]

I don’t know why it has taken me so long, but I have started voraciously listening to podcasts. I’ve been listening while I drive, while I knit, while I edit photos, etc. I have gotten a lot of great information from listening to the various podcasts and have been extremely inspired. Here are some of my favorites so far. What are some of yours?

Make it Monday [01.20.15]

Every Monday I will showcase something I’ve made based off of the Friday Palette. I hope you all will join in and tag Khaki & Chrome so I can see all of the awesome things you’ve made!

This week I made a never-ending cowl which is why I’m posting on Tuesday instead of Monday! I used Red Heart’s “Boutique Unforgettable” in Bistro and Petunia. I cast on 75 stitches using size 7 needles, garter stitched until the end of the skein, then bound off. I then used an N crochet hook to single crochet for 15 rows and then slip stitch along the other side of the cowl to join it into a circle. I loved the way it turned out, but it just took way longer than I had anticipated!
