FO Friday 29.12.17

I’m so glad I have these posts to help me keep track of the days. Isn’t the time between Christmas and new year strange?

It probably doesn’t help that I’ve been crocheting constantly for the last three to four weeks, and now suddenly everything that needs to be made has been made. I’m not quite sure what to do with myself!

Never fear, all my family birthdays fall within January to April so I’ll be busy making again soon enough. In the meantime let’s have a looksee at some of the presents I made for Christmas.

The first gift I handed out was this little musical kitty (pattern here)

Shortly followed by her tiny ginger twin

I sent out octopoms

(plus 2 more octos I didn’t get photos of)

and pokemon.

And yes, I finally finished my dad’s snorlax yesterday

I just love his little feet!

I also finished up the fingerless gloves and gave them to my friend. She immediately put them on and ran off to show her fiancé, so I think she was pleased.

Because of the yarn and hook size, these are super quick and easy to make so I’m definitely putting some into my shop in the new year.

So how’s everyone else doing this week? Managed any yarning for yourself? Let me know in the comments!

The great FO Friday post

Being ill sucks. It does. But then look at this lovely long list of FOs!

My first, single-strand Seafoam scarf is done and blocked.

Here it is next to the second one to show the difference.

Both kindle cosies are finished, although I clearly mis-measured one of them so that’ll be a phone cosy instead. I also can’t find it right now to take a photo….

This is the dragon scale cosy

I finished Charmander and Bubasaur this week, so my brother’s Christmas presents are ready to go.

And I may never make another Bulbasaur again, he was so awkward. One of those legs has been sewn on 4 times, the left ear twice, and don’t even ask about the bulb.

I can barely believe it – this brings my WIP count down to 5! But I have so many ideas whirling round my mind at the moment that I’m sure it won’t stay down there for very long.

So there we go, sometimes being ill isn’t all bad. Anyone else sick, so we can commiserate together (I’m looking at you, Tami!)? Got some FOs this week? Let me know in the comments!

WIP Wednesday 27.09.17

Current WIP count: 8

Lookit me, right down into single figures again! Although it’s slightly less good knowing that’s only because I’ve been too ill to do anything but crochet.

Sewing amigurumi together has become a hundred times easier and less stressful since discovering this method. I’m currently using it to sew together my brother’s third and final Christmas present; Bulbasaur.

I find it easier, and it looks so much neater than the method I was using before. I’m actually considering keeping my first squirtle and making another with this stitching for my brother, so they’ll all be as neat as each other.

There’s also the doily that I’ve been putting off for months, but have finally forced myself to work on. I really hope it’s eventually going to look half as good as I’m imagining. No photos, because it doesn’t look much like anything yet.

There are also a few things blocking so they’ll be ready in time for Friday. This might be the most productive FO Friday post I ever make! At least something useful has come of this flippin everlasting virus.

What’s everyone else working on? Let me know in the comments!
