Octo pledge 2019 January Donations

Wowza – it’s been a whole year since my first donation to OFAPUK. Doesn’t time fly? Today I am checking in to share with you the Octo’s I donated in January.

There’s a total of 4 this month, using the scraps of no less than 6 balls of yarn. And here is how they did, Clockwise from top left:
1. Preemie

3. Went to an Angel. I knew this would be the case as soon as I stuffed it – There were so many holes in it it made no sense to sew them up as in the same time I could have made another! This was the first time I used Scheepjes Sunkissed for Octo’s, (I was using the leftovers from my laptop case) and I think my hook was a little too big. Next time, I will use a 2mm and see how that goes.

Octopledge 2018 December Donation

Its been another rather light month on the octo front – mainly owing to christmas – I completed 2 when I went to the pub with the local Octo group, but couldnt complete more until the xmas gifts were complete

I tried to use up some part used balls so I used Grundl Cotton Quick Print for these.
I will update this post once I know their fates. 

#Octopledge 2018 July Donation

Hi all! Another busy month and yet again, I totally didnt notice july passing until it was 2/3rds of the way done! So its another small batch from me this month. 

These two lovely little flatties were made using Drops Love You 8 and a 3mm hook. I love how vibrant they are.
And the good news is they both went to preemies! Another month with all passes, even though it is only a small batch. 
My co-ordinator will be on holiday for the last week of August, so for Augusts donation I will need to get started earlier! Time to get cracking!
