This started last week as a bunch of cotton skeins of yarn.
And then they became a bunch if squares.
Which became a blanket.
Of course there were leftovers. And I have a problem with leftover yarn. So a baby beanie was made too.
As for WIPs I still have the ripple blanket and the viajante but I think I want to cast on a smaller project.
I am just making squares for now. Don’t know what they will be used for yet.
It is Wednesday somewhere, I am sure. Or at least it is in my head. Totally forgot to take a picture yesterday and didn’t want to do it at night when the light is so horrible. I am still working on my Viajante (well barely) I am almost at the point where I am supposed to join for the round and it is really exciting.
I am still working on my blanket, my viajante and a crochet bag. All of them slow projects. Which right now works for me. I also made a project bag yesterday.
I used EmmalineBags‘ tutorial to make it. My handles were much smaller than the ones she used and I didn’t adjust the pattern size accordingly, but I am still pleased with the results
It has been a busy week.
I like being busy.
I am still working on my second color affection. But I am finally on the edge.
I made a little hat clip. I think I want to make a Cat in the Hat striped one.
I made cupcakes for the little one's class birthday party and they were a great success.
This morning I was feeling stressed so I made a bag. Instant stress relief.
I also printed out a new picture for my clear iphone case.
I also finished reading the book of awesome. It is awesome. Light happy reading that soothes the soul.
I am still working on my granny square blanket. It is fun. It is slow. It it's relaxing. I am also about to start this book. I just finished Umberto Eco's “How to travel with Salmon” some of the stories/essays were really good and some were so boring I skipped them.
I am also still working on my never ending granny square blanket. According ro my optimistic estimate, I still need another 5 skeins of yarn to get it to a good size to cover our King Size bed. I have this yellowish gold one, a blue one and some beigish yarn left. Each ball is more than 400 meters of yarn. That is a lot of 3DC clusters but I think it already looks gorgeous.
Slowly but surely. That is my motto for this one. I am in no hurry to finish it.
What are you working on this week?
I somehow found myself making dolls. It is like it just happened. Something inspired me, which I can't recall and I went on this doll making research frenzy.
Dolls are fun to make. The options are limitless. You can include as much detail as you want or none at all.
I started out with this one. Then my mom said she wanted a granny one too. I am loving dressing them, giving them eyes and making the hair.
Do you like making toys?
