WIP Wednesday 22.11.17

Current WIP count: 5

Not to cause mass panic or anything, but did you know it’s less than 5 weeks til Christmas? Argh!

My snowflake decorations are coming along nicely, but I’m beginning to despair of getting any light good enough to take photos of them. I bought a ring-light in the hope that it would help, but of course I was sent a dud and it doesn’t work. Sigh.

My hat-obsession continues and there’s yet another one on my needles, plus I’m onto my second crocheted santa hat having finally finished one I was happy with.

I also out-cuted myself with this newborn/preemie hat. It is so tiny!

This weekend will be super busy with my choir’s 15 year anniversary concert, and singing at the switch-on of some Christmas lights, plus my parents staying with me. But after that I really need to get cracking with my Christmas presents. There will be a list, and I will stick to it!

What’s everyone else working on this week? Anyone else considering taking a holiday from work just to catch up on crochet?? let me know in the comments!



FO Friday 17.11.17

I’m naming this week Hat Week, because I’ve been whacking them out and I’m now onto my fourth!

You’ve seen this rainbow lovely, which I decided not to make a pompom for so it’s finished as is.


I also (totally on purpose, honest) made a baby version with pompom using the same yarn.

This might be the cutest thing I’ve seen all year – I made it and even I squee a little bit every time I see it. It’s just so CUTE!!

This one here is the first one I made using my circular needles.

I’m calling it the Ribbit Hat, because the number of times I had to frog this thing is into double figures. And, y’know, it has ribbing.

That weird stripe in the cream was an attempt at a pattern using knit and purl stitches. They’re supposed to be triangles, but clearly it needs a yarn with clearer stitch definition because it just looks a bit wavy.

This one came out as a slouchy hat, which I didn’t think I liked, but then I tried it on and it actually doesn’t look too bad.

The santa hat is not quite finished because I was finishing up my Captain America cushion instead.

What do you think? It’s not quite as I imagined, but you can definitely tell what it’s supposed to be so that’ll do for me! And my Mum is pleased with it, which is what really matters considering she ordered it.

So that’s been my pretty productive week. Does anyone else get into trends of making the same thing? Got any FOs to share? Let me know in the comments!
