WIP Wednesday 25.10.17

Current WIP count: 5

You know I said I was following a pattern for these blankies? I lied.

The bunny head is pretty much as per, but that’s it. The Red Heart pattern has the bunny at the corner of a square blanket and I realised I prefer them with the character in the middle. But instead of faffing about looking for a different pattern I decided to make it up as I went.

Of course making the blanket triangle-shaped was a conscious decision, thoroughly planned out. Nothing to do with me not realising that 18 doesn’t divide easily into 4. Nothing at all.

I could have frogged back and removed a row of decrease on the head so it could be square, but you know I’m in a rush (2 days til they need posting!) and I think being triangular makes them more unique. That’s what I keep telling myself, anyway.

Right now I don’t have an updated photo of the bunny blankie (I’ll see if I can add one in later), but it’s about the same length as this one.

Honestly, I’m not sure what animal this is supposed to be. I just went with a round head and some teddy bear type ears. It’s cute; that’ll do me.

All the fiddly amigurumi bits are finished now and granny stitch goes super quickly, so I’m sure I can get these finished on time. Well, as long as I don’t keep having issues with my Caron Cakes.

So far I’ve had one bit where the yarn had frayed and was barely holding on by one strand, one bit where the colour runs were ridiculously short (and the lighter coloured bits were much thinner than the rest), and one big chunk of this colour:

Is it grey? Is it brown? I can’t decide. But it is definitely nasty and I had to cut it out. That’s three lots of grafting together I had to do in just half of one cake. It might be time for a strongly worded letter to Caron.

Keep your fingers crossed that I can finish them both in time! What’s everyone else working on? Having any yarny problems like me? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Those are so cute! I also like it when the animal head is in the middle; it seems easier for kids to play with. πŸ™‚ The triangle shape looks really neat; a happy accident! Good luck finishing them in time! You can do it!
