#Octopledge2018 Mid April Update

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are having a lovely day. I have been crocheting and catching up on Star Trek Discovery. Good times!

Anyways, it is mid month so it is time for an update on my Octo making efforts.

So far this month, I have only managed 1 little octo chum. My carpel tunnel syndrome put a stop to octo making for a week or so, then I came down with a rotten cold. Then when I finally got close to beating the cold my fiancee also came down with a cold. You cant make octo’s when there is sickness in the house because its not worth the risk to the teeny tiny preemie babies, so my octo making gear went into quarantine until Mr Common Cold virus had well and truly left our home.

This octo is made using 11g of King Cole Giza Cotton Sorbet.

I must say, whilst being quite pretty, this 4ply is very fiddly to work with. A 2mm hook is quite hard to hold too. I habe a fair bit of 4ply to get through but maybe after I have worked through it all I will stick to DK or heavier!
