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 20.09.17

Current WIP count: 9

Squirtle was getting lonely, so I’ve started making a charmander friend for him. I haven’t had a solid chunk of time to work on it so this one is going a bit slower.

The hood for my scoodie is blocking right now, I tried spraying it with water rather than soaking so hopefully it won’t take as long to dry as the little squares did.

I’ve joined the squares together into a scarf, but there’s a very real possibility I might undo them all again. It’s not a straight join and I really don’t like the way it makes the scarf zigzag (sorry no photos, I dislike it that much).

I really don’t enjoy the whole joining process though, so I’ll probably just do another round of granny stitch all the way around the edge and hope that straightens it up a bit.

And the beautiful second Seafoam Scarf is nearly finished.

It’s long enough to wrap around my neck now, so I’ll just add a few more repeats until the yarn runs out. I can’t be doing with tiny little bundles of yarn left over after every project!

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