What Is Coming Up in January & February


Hey everyone! 

I wanted to give a glimpse into what I plan to do over the next couple months. I know I have been slacking in content and I apologize for that. Life is crazy! As of right now, here are the projects in the works:

  • Adult Hat On The All In One Loom 
  • Wreath Collaboration with my cousin Terri of Generically Yours (Youtube)  
  • Baby Hat (Still deciding on loom)
  • Painting Craft 
I'm currently sorting through my craft items, both looming and non-looming related, as I would like to expand into other crafts every now and then. It's important that you check out my "Community Tab" on the YouTube channel in order to participate in polls where you can help decide things like projects, looms and more! I will also be posting on here when I can to keep you guys updated and sharing my thoughts on crafts, yarn, and more! I can't wait to get back into filming more this year! Thank you to all that has remained loyal to me all these years! 

As some of you know, I have a second YouTube channel, Ginny's Two Cents, where I will be posting about weight loss, and book reviews along with other topics that interest me. If you would like to subscribe I would appreciate it! Thanks! You can also check out my website for it at: https://www.ginnystwocents.com/

Have a great day everyone!

Creativity Is Not Define By Complexity

 


        Over the last few weeks I have been honestly doubting myself. Doubting my creativity because the ideas I have are...well...simple. I was unsure whether to post new videos when I felt this way. Yet, creativity isn't about complexity, never really has been for me or for my YouTube channels so WHY am I hesitating? Because negative thoughts can overpower us. They can make you feel "less than" if you are "too simple". At least that is how my thought process has been like for awhile when it came to filming. 
    But, I am starting to let negative thoughts not control me, or my creativity. I know I am not alone in feeling this way. I'm sure some of you reading this right now are dealing with it too. I put pressure on myself in areas where I don't need to. "Simple" isn't a bad word. I called my YouTube channel "Simply Intertwined" because I WANTED to keep things simple. I don't do very complex items because that, frankly, isn't me. I'm a simple person. A simple creator. And creativity isn't defined by how complex it is to make/do. 
    I like sharing how to use the same stitches to make different items because, for some, they can only handle doing simple projects, simple stitches and there is nothing wrong with that.

Red Winter Hat


**This is designed for milder winter weather.**

What you will need:
  • Worsted Weight Yarn (4) in a dark red. (I believe mine was a Red Heart Super Saver yarn but unsure of exact color since I don't have the label anymore.)
  • Adjustable Hat Loom from Knitting Board (KB)
  • Looming Tool
  • Row Counter 
  • Crochet Hook
  • Stitch Markers
  • A tiny rubber band or another item to help you know when you have reached the beginning again. I placed a tiny blue rubber band on a section of the loom before attaching together to help me know when I was at the start again.

Day One Of My Temperature Blanket

Here it is!
The first day of my temperature blanket project! I promise I won't post every day about it, more like at the end of each month. 😁

For those that don't know what a temperature blanket is, it involves assigning yarn to specific temperature ranges and knitting (or crocheting) a row each day that corresponds to that temperature. Some choose to pick the highest temperature or lowest, others a set time each day. Some do two rows, one for highest, one for lowest.  I decided on recording the temperature at noon every day.
