Ooooh I have had a productive week this week. Night shifts are really good for getting me crocheting!
This week I have 3 WIP’s.
Theres the Esja Sweater, which I showed you yesterday.
I am working on another Wanderlust Scarf.
And I have some Mittens on the hook.
Whew! Busy buzy busy – as I am sure you all are what with christmas less than a month away! Eek its getting so close! I cant loose my mojo now, as well as these few more chridtmas gifts I have a gift to make for a pregnant colleague who goes on maternity in December, so I wont be resting my hooks just yet!
This week I have just 2 projects on my hooks.
The Esja Sweater, which I shared with you yesterday.
And the Wanderlust Scarf. I intend to make 2 of these. This one is Drops Air, and I intend to make the other in Malabrigo Worsted.
***whoopsie! Forgot to push publish!***
Its Wednesday again and after 3 lovely long weeks off of work I have today returned to work (BOOOOO). But on the bright side I now only have 5 more working weeks until I start my new job! Yays! And Fallout 76 (the newest installment in my favourite video game series) comes out today so once I have finished work I will be straight down the shops to collect my pre-order. Until then, Here are my WIP’s.
After finishing my Wanderlust Beanie I started on a nice pair of mittens using the same yarn. I have mitten no.1 complete so now its onto the second.
I have added a few more inches to my Simple Scallops Shawl. Its slow going but I am getting there. I am a bit pants with projects where each row takes longer than the last. I tend to loose motivation! But hey, its ok. This is the sort of pattern where you just keep going until you run out of yarn, and I only have 38g left so hopefully I will finish soon!
Having staved off the illness in the house I finally got back to my Octos and am now further into my first.
I am also of course working on my Esja Sweater, but that has its own MAL post so I wont repeat myself here.
On a final note does anyone elses cat do this?
Whenever I am playing with yarn the cat does this thing where she rolls about on the floor or sofa somewhere near me and stretches out and just happens to find the yarn at the end of her paw. Bless her little face, its like she knows she isnt allowed to go directly to it so she is trying her hardest to look like its a coincidence! You have to love their crafty little ways!
Deary me! I have forgotten to post a WIP wednesday for two weeks in a row! Whoopsie.
I currently have 3 WIP’s
I started making my November Octo’s for OFAPUK back whilst I was on holiday.
See here I am on Twin Peaks having a bit of a crochet (My fiance was taking forever taking time lapse of the clouds rolling over the city so I took my opportunity to crochet where I could!). But unfortunately, on returning to the UK, both of us came down with tummy bugs then my fiance followed that with a cold so they have been in quarantine ever since.
I am almost finished with my Sophine Scarf, which I also started whilst on holiday (On the plane, in fact). The stitching is done and its on the blocking board. I just have to wait for it to dry then I can add the fringe and it will be done.
Carrying on with the lace theme, I started working on the Simple Scallops shawl. At the mo you cant see the laceyness but once its finished and blocked I am sure it will be lovely.
Tomorrow I will start an exciting new pattern. But more about that once I have collected the yarn from the delivery office tomorrow.
Ooooh how exciting! Its wednesday again and I am working nights. When I finish nights next wednesday, I will be just 1 day away from going to America for my birthday! I am so excited! I cant wait.
I am currently working on 4 projects.
First is the octos for Ofapuk. I am trying to make as many as I can before I finish nights, as I will have to post them next wedesday. I already have 8 complete. 1 more will take my total donation to 50 critters. Yay!
I am making myself another hat – this time in black to match with a black courduroy pinnafore dress I bought myself recently. No picture yet as its so close to the start that theres no point in photographing it!
I have just the finishing touches of my Satirday slippers to make. They look like slippers but need soles and embroidery.
And I have started some more slippers.
Another wednesday has come so its time for another WIP post.
The Octos have still seen no action. I am still a bit sniffly so they are still in quarantine. But soon I will bust them out.
In the meantime, I am working hard to finish my other projects so that when I am on nights next week I can focus mainly on the Octos. The slippers are now complete on the crochet side of things. But I still have to sew them up and then sew on some leather soles and a bit of simple embroidery. And the Honeybuns beanie is coming along nicely. Only a couple of tows until I finish the honeycombs and can start the crown.
You may notice the chunky hat is no longer in this list, as I finished it thisafternnon. As soon as I can photograph it I will share a post about it.
What have you been up to this week.
My word! This is the third week in a row I have missed WIP wedesday! I think perhaps I should just start calling it WIP Thursday instead!
The slippers and octos mentioned last week have seen no progress.
However, the 1hr beanie is significantly further along (although it still looks nothing like a hat)
And the Honeybun Beanie finally looks like a hat! My god the band took forever! 144 rows before! But now it is done the hat is growing nicely!
What did you get up to this week?
Another wip post a little bit late! Wednesdays always seem to pass by without me noticing!
I have had a busy week of making – I finished all of my wip’s and started a whole bunch of new projects! Theres these slippers by Make and Do Crew (which really irks me because I should have been able to finish them on sunday, but more about that later) Theres the HoneyBuns Beanie by Nomad Stitches in the beautiful Baa Ram Ewe Titus. Theres the One Hour Beanie, also by Make and Do Crew, which I am using to teach my ‘student’ crochet with their very first project (I think having a finished object will really be motivating).
And I also have more octos on the go. They are however in quarantine at the mo since my household is full of coughs and sneezes. So no picture of those.
I recently finished 2 projects too so as soon as I can photograph them I will share them with you.
Sorry its a bit late, I forgot to press the publish button. Doh!
So its over half way through september. Its flying by!
I have 3 projects on the hook right now.
I have been cracking on with the heads to some octopusses. I will be nocking out the tentacles this week as I hope to hand them over at our next meet up which is on saturday.
I came to a standstill on chris’ hat. I got to the end of the straight section but then realised I didnt have enough yarn to finish. I tried to make up my own ending to finidh it early but I hated how it looked so had to rip it back. A second skein of yarn arrived today though in the post so hopefully I can get it finished in the next few days.
Also I have to sew in lots of ends on other facepads and wash cloths I have made.
What are you up to this week?
Ooooh its almost Autumn, and I really cant wait for cardi and hat and scarf weather! Eek! I want to put cinnamon on everything and cosy up with my yarn as the raindrops patter on the window glass. My favourite time of year!
Anyways, time for this weeks WIP’s.
I have 3 projects on the hooks right now. First is my contribution for September for OFAPUK, Using Lana Grossa Cotone.
Second are these flowery washcloths, using Lily Sugar n Cream.
And finally this wooly hat for my love, using Baa Ram Ewe Dovestone.
