WIP Thursday 17.09.20

Current WIP count: 7

I thought I was over the lure of crafting magazines and their freebies, but it turns out I can still be swayed.

It’s the Peanuts amigurumi, you see. I have so many people who love Peanuts so they would make excellent presents. Plus there are both crochet and knitting patterns for each character and I’m intrigued to see the difference when making the same item.

But also, there’s a wee rainbow pattern in the back, which I’ve been meaning to make for at least 5 months so that was just the push I needed.

Turns out it’s tiny.

It was done in about half an hour, and only took that long because I was so scared of snapping the hook. I mean, look at this nonsense:

But not too much. One hard stare might be the end of it.

Of course, I’d barely finished before planning the next one and how I could improve it, so I’ll probably be making rainbows for a wee while yet. It feels good to be crocheting again!

Fail Friday

Oh these bootees!!

I was supposed to have an FO to show you today, but guess which muppet picked up her crochet without the hook this morning.

I’m disappointed, but on the plus side I spent my lunch break joining in with #sharethelove on Instagram. I’ve found so many new beautiful accounts to follow and it’s really interesting to see which of my posts different people like.

If you’re on Instagram you can still play – messgage me a heart (@quietwater_craft) and I’ll share my favourite post from your feed in my stories. Or set up your own and get sharing other people 🙂

Hopefully I can get these flipping baby shoes finished at the weekend. Who knew something so small could cause so much trouble?

How’s your Friday going? Got any FOs to share? Let me know in the comments!
