A pain in the…wrist

The good news is that I didn’t run out of yarn when I was away, and made it past my first hundred bricks.

105.5 made

The bad news is I started to get quite a sharp pain in my wrist so had to scale things back, and didn’t make it to the halfway point. I blame those bobble stitches.

121.5 to go

This does give me an excuse to focus on joining the bricks together though! I’ve got a good chunk of each colour done now so I should be able to keep joining for a few days and hopefully that’ll be long enough for my wrist to feel okay.

Yes I have learned my lesson, and once I’m better I will keep alternating between crocheting and joining so hopefully it won’t happen again.

WIP Wednesday 10.07.19

Current WIP count: 8

Yes, I have added another WIP to the list. I just can’t help myself.

One of my friends was particularly impressed with the Lego blanket I made for my Dad, so I decided to make another one for them. This time I’m buying yarn specifically for it rather than using up stash so it will all be the same brand, size, and weight, which should make the whole thing go a bit smoother.

I’ve also slightly tweaked the bricks so hopefully they’ll sit together better when I sew everything up.

I loved this one,┬ábut it didn’t quite have that straight Lego look

Flax Light is bimbling along, but I’ll spare everyone yet another photo of an unfinished sleeve. Even I’m getting bored of it.

And I’m on to the bobbles for Changing Tides so it feels like everything has ground to a halt. These things take forever!

But this is the last lot of bobbles and we’re approaching the end of the CAL so my motivation is still pretty high. Yes I’m a week behind, but this is the closest I’ve ever come to keeping up with a live CAL and I’m determined to keep going to the end.

So that’s my week, what’s everyone else working on? Let me know in the comments!

FO Friday 23.03.18

It’s done, it’s finally finished! At last I can cross the chevron blanket off my WIP list.

Blue and white chevron blanket

 

Yes, the ends need sewing in. Details.

I love my blankets with alternating BLO and regular stitch sections, but I think it worked better with the super chunky yarn I used for my massive chevron blanket.

Either way, it’s done and as soon as I get the ends sewn in this is going to my local cat shelter.

I also whipped up a wee birthday present for my dad, who loves hedgehogs.

It’s just shorter than the palm of my hand, really dinky and cute!

And look at the clever little bobble stitch feet.

I used this pattern for the body, modified to BLO to leave the front loops free for the spines. And this one for the spines (I don’t have any eyelash yarn) with three chains rather than four. I just can’t leave a pattern alone!

It’s so cute, I might have to make another one for myself.

A productive week all in all, so I’m happy. How’s your week been? Finished anything crafty? Let me know in the comments!
