Remembering how to amigurumi

Current WIP count: 5

Gosh it’s nice to be back to small projects after so many blankets.

Work has resumed on Morag the Highland Coo, and somehow after a long break the loop stitch feels much easier than it did all those months ago. Maybe my brain just needed time to process it before jumping in?

This is most of a body. I’m using my stash of ends and scraps as stuffing, which is great motivation to keep the stitches tight; I don’t want those Lego brick brights peeking through!

I also have a pretty Toft project bag to keep all the pieces in so they don’t end up spread all over my flat like the poor dragon I started forever ago.

Yesterday I found out it is possible to be too ill to crochet, but I’m feeling human again today and really enjoying getting back to amigurumi. I must remember this next time I’m tempted to start three massive projects all at the same time…

White rabbits!

I have two totally different finishes to show for myself this week.

After a solid weekend of crochet and Buffy/Angel, I finished the Kalinda shawl with only a slight adjustment to the pattern.

It’s such a simple pattern that I didn’t want to add any faff with the border. I planned to end with another row of dc, but halfway down the first side I realised that the yarn was running out rather quickly and I would never win this game of yarn chicken. So I frogged back and went for a row of sc with 3 chains at the point to make it a bit pointier. I think it looks pretty good!

It is suuuuuper tempting to hold on to this beauty, but I already have more than enough scarves and shawls so now I have to decide who to give it to.

Stats
Yarn: Cotton Kings Twirl
Colourway: Brazilian Opal
Hook: 3.5mm
Pattern: Kalinda shawl by Crochetory

My second finish is the Caron Cake project bag I started a couple of weeks ago.

I’m still not a huge fan of the colours so not tempted to keep this one. Would anyone be interested in a giveaway for it?

It was pretty simple to make so I might do another one for myself in prettier colours.

Stats
Yarn: Caron Cake x2
Colourway: Strawberry trifle
Hook: 5.5mm
Pattern: One skein wonder carry-all

And that’s what I did this week. Anyone else got some FOs? Interested in winning the bag? Let me know in the comments!
