Serenova Crafts Episode 45: One More Day in FL

Today’s episode starts off with a serious topic, but then I continue into my normal chat. It’s my last day in Florida, and though I’m working, I get to go see family tonight, so I’m excited about that!

Thank you to all my viewers both returning and new! And welcome to all new members!

I’ve started a thread in the group for projects finished during November. There’s a dedicated FO thread and a chatter thread to talk about those projects. At the end of the month I’ll pick a random post and that person wins $6 in Ravelry patterns!

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes and the gift patterns! I really appreciate it!

Now onto the projects.

The Incredible Girl Socks

Test Sweater
Cry of the Direwolf Socks (Twill Sock Club)
Baby Blanket (pattern here)

Overall I’ve had a good time while in Florida and I hope that I can get back soon!

If you have any questions about today’s episode or my crafting or me in general, feel free to ask!

FO: Wavy Chevron Baby Blanket


It’s done! This is a crochet blanket that I designed myself. The pattern is available for free here.

The yarn is older than I am, so I can’t really link it anywhere. The color is called Rust Red. The mother of the baby this is for specifically asked for a foxy orange so since I had this in stash it became the blanket! This yarn is actually out of my grandmother’s stash. I’ve inherited a lot of her yarn actually and I have more large quantities of worsted weight from her that I can use for things.

There isn’t much else to say about this! But feel free to enjoy the pattern. It’s more of a recipe than anything.

FO: Handbrake Cowl #2!

I managed to finish this cowl on Wednesday evening after I recorded my podcast. I was very close to being done and after half a pattern repeat more, it was time to knit the border and bind off.

And of course, I ran out of yarn JUST as I went to do the bind off.


I’m not kidding you. See how much yarn is there? Yeah, that’s not nearly enough for the entire bind off of 150+ stitches. So I pulled from another smaller ball I had of this same yarn and did the bind off. It gave me a few extra ends to weave in but it works so I’m not complaining!

This cowl was knit out of the leftovers from my Benton Cardigan. The yarn is Malabrigo Yarn Rios in Arco Iris. It’s really amazing how much variation there is in the skeins of this yarn. And all the ones I had were technically the same dye lot!

I used the equivalent of 1 skein for this cowl even though I made it slightly bigger than the small size in the pattern.


My project page can be found here. The pattern is Handbrake by Kay F Jones. It’s available for £1.00 GBP (or about $1.57 US right now). I can’t wrap this one around my neck twice but it’s a good layering piece at least. And it matches my Benton which is what matters.

I only get one entry into the KAL that this was for, but hey, what can you do. At least I have another layer for this coming winter!

Happy Halloween!
