As you will remember, If you read my mid march update, I had made 4 and a half little critters. I had hoped to make one or two more but my carpal tunnel had started to play up. Unfortunately, I was unable to do more than finish the 5th. I managed to finish my jumper without much pain but I think the tension and the small size of the hook is what is causing me the pain more than anything. When making the tentacles not only was I getting pain in my wrists and lower arms, I was also getting quite severe pain in my shoulders. So I decided to finish the last one and put them down for a week or two in favour of projects where my tension is much more open and the hooks are a little bigger.
Anyways, this is my little tangle for this month:
Clockwise from top left:
My only Octo for the month, he is a big boy using a massive 35.5g of Lily Sugar ‘n’ Cream in Mod Ombre – going to a preemie
The first Jelly I made, using the last 26.5g of Sirdar Cotton Prints in Summer Meadow – going to an angel – due to small holes in the bottom where I decreased
Another Jelly, this time in 22g of Lily Sugar ‘n’ Cream in Mod Ombre and 5g of Lily Sugar ‘n’ Cream in Bright Yellow – going to a preemie
Jelly no.3, Made in 14g of King Cole Cottonsoft Crush in Rainbow – going to a preemie
And Jelly no.4 Made using 15g of Scheepjes Catona in a colourway I cant remember (maybe pistachio?) – going to an angel – due to smll holes this time in the increase rounds.
