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 06.09.17

Current WIP  count: 9

I’m making super progress on my Seafoam Scarf, sooooo glad I dropped Sacre Coeur for this!

Still dithering about how long to make it. If I carry on until the yarn is all gone then I think it’ll end up massively long, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Or I could make it a more regular length and find some other use for the remaining yarn. I’m really not sure.

There’s also a solid beginning on the first bit of my brother’s Christmas present:

The blue is actually nowhere near this dark

 

 

 

Can you tell what it is yet?

I’m using 53Stitches’ pattern and hoping mine turns out even half as cute. I’m still an amigurumi novice so I’m not expecting it to be perfect, but if it’s recognisably a squirtle then I’ll be happy!

All the small granny squares for my scoodie are blocking, and I’ve made a start on the big square for the hood. This involves adding stitches to only 3 of the 4 sides, which I’ve not done before. Yay for new skills!

What’s everyone else working on? Made a start on any Christmas presents yet? Let me know in the comments!
