Wednsday WIPs - 20.07.2016

It's that time of the week again, time to show what progress I have made. on my WIPs, and here they are.

Story Time Blanket
I haven't made as much progress on this as I would have liked. The only time I worked on it was Friday morning and I was busy with two new students so didn't spend a lot of time on it.

Moogly CAL 2016 Block #9
Another block complete but with a new block coming out on Friday it doesn't really feel like I'm catching up. I'm sure I will eventually but it seems to be taking so long.

Experimental Dishcloth side 1
Experimental Dishcloth side 2
This one is almost finished. I'm not sure if I will continue with this experiment once this is done. I think Ive learnt enough with this one.

That's it from me for now. I'm sure that I will be able to finish something for Friday so be sure to check back then to see if I have been successful. In the meantime, check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.

Friday FOs - 15.07.2016

Since I didn't write a post last Friday you get two week's worth of finishes instead of one this week. Here are all the items that I have finished in the last two weeks.

Experimental Owl #4
The largest of mu owls so far. I think the positioning of the eyes might be a bit off but I think I have pretty much settled on the design. I won't be publishing a pattern for this as I'm pretty sure someone else already has.

Experimental Dishcloth #1
I quite like this effect but I don't think this technique could be used for anything subtle.

Trauma Teddy #20
Last week's Trauma Teddy.

Trauma Teddy #21
This week's Trauma Teddy.

That's it from me for this week. Be sure to check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have made.

Wednesday WIPs - 13.072016

Well, we made back home safely after a weekend away. The trip back was quite wild as there was quite a bit of rain and wind around. I only took small projects away with me and here they are.

Moogly CAL 2016 - Block #8
I managed to f]get another block done but I'm still 6 blocks behind. I could catch up quicker if I did two blocks each week but I've got plenty of time.

Crochetknit Picture Dishcloth
This is my second attempt at colour-work in crochetknit (double-ended Tunisian). While this may not be my neatest crocheting effort I am learning more about how this technique might work. It's definitely not a 1 to 1 ratio between rows and stitches. More like 1 to 1.5. I don't think I could do a proper picture like a butterfly or flower using this technique but I may try it on a larger scale.

Future WIPs
Not so much a WIP as a stash enhancement. I recent won a draw for a $30 voucher from Bubs2Grubs and this is what I sellected to spend my money on. I figure I can make a few toys or trauma teddies from this lot.

That's it from me for now. Be sure to check back on Friday to see what I have finished in the last couple of weeks. In the meantime, check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.

Wednesday WIPs - 06.07.2016

I have had another busy week this week, managing to finish three items in between studying and working on two other projects. Here are the WIPs I have worked on this week.

Moogly CAL Block #6
 This is the square that I should have taken a photo of last week but forgot.

Moogly CAL Block #7
This block means that I'm now 6 blocks behind, but I am catching up.

Story Time Blanket
I have been making good progress on this one lately as I have been spending a bit of extra time working on it.

That's it from me for now. I won't be doing a FO post this week as Sue and I will be going away for the weekend. I'm sure that other people have been working on some interesting things so check out the links in the sidebar.

Friday FOs 01.07.2016

I have a couple of items that I have finished this week, and here they are.

An Owl
I think this is the best one so far. I think I'm just about ready to teach someone how to make it. Unfortunately, crochet classes are on a break right now so I have no one to teach.

Trauma Teddy #19 for 2016
Another Trauma Teddy to add to the collection.

That's it from me for this week. Be sure to check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have made.

Wednesday WIPs - 29.06.2016

Time to show what I have been working on this week. Here are the projects that I have worked on that are still WIPs.

Striped Dishcloth
This one is almost done, which is a good thing since I'm almost out of the variegated pink.

Tunisisn Spiral Blanket
Story Time Blanket
I'm still making good progress on this blanket although it will still take me a while to finish.

I spent a bit of time in waiting rooms yesterday so I got this out and added a couple more blocks.

While writing this post I realised that I forgot one project, my Moogly CAL blanket. I guess I'll have to show you this week's block next week.

As usual, check back on Friday to see this week's finished objects and check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.
