Friday FOs - 26.08.2016

Here I am, posting this on Saturday morning because I forgot to do it last night. I think I would really lose my head if it wasn't firmly attached. Ah well, it's still Friday in some parts of the world. Here is my not so exciting FO for this week.

Trauma Teddy #26 for 2016
Another Trauma Teddy ready to be given to a child in need of some extra comfort.

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 - 24.08.2016

Looking at all the projects that I have worked on this week it looks like I have been really busy, but it hasn't felt like it. Here are the projects that I have worked on this week.

Storytime Blanket
I had a bit of time without any students on Friday so I made good progress on this for a little while.

Butterfly square side one
Butterfly Square side 2
This is the latest block for my Double Knit Butterfly Blanket. I'm not entirely sure why it shows up as grey in these photos as it is actually mauve.

Here are all the blocks I have made so far.

Butterfly Blocks side1
Butterfly Blocks side 2
This is just one of the projecs that I worked on while at a market on Saturday morning.

Corner to Corner Pixel Square
I finished crocheting the square, now I have to sew in all the ends. I will try to figure something to reduce the number of ends for the next square.

Moogly CAL Block #14
I'm catching up with this CAL and am now 3 blocks behind.

Size 13 Slippers
The instep of the second slipper is almost finished which means that this pair of slippers is almost ready for delivery.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
I was in a waiting room this morning so I pulled this out of my bag and got through another colour change.

I think that is enough from me for now. I should have something finished for Friday so check back then to see what it is. In the meantime, chack out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.

Friday FOs - 19.08.2016

It's Friday night here in Australia and time to show off my finished items. As I intimated on Wednesday, one of my finished items had been languishing for quite a while. Here are this week's finished objects.

Boy's Rugby Jumper
I can't remember how long this jumper has been waiting for a zip to be sewn in. This one is made for a four year old but the armspane seems a little big. I followed the pattern to the letter so it should be right.

Trauma Teddy #26 for 2016
Another week, another Teddy.

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

Wednesday WIPs - 17.08.2016

I have spent most of my crochet on one project again this week, although I have managed to finish something that has been hanging around for a while. Here are my WIPs for this week.

Storytime Blanket
Progress on this is a bit slow at the moment. It seems my students require a bit more of my attention than normal and it is slowing me down a bit.

Moogly CAL 2016 Block #13
I still need to sew in the ends and I'm now 3 blocks behind (until Friday).

Size 13 Slippers
I do hope I have made these big enough but, since I don't have a size 13 foot, I can't really check them.

That's it from me for now. Please check back on Friday to see if I remember to post my finished items. In the meantime, check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.

Friday FOs - 12.08.2016

Another week, another Trauma Teddy. Here is this week's bear.

Trauma Teddy #25 for 2016
I still have a couple of items that are almost finished but I want to try and get the slippers done first. Time to get busy I think.

That's it from me for this week. As usual, check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have completed.

Wednesday WIPs - 10.08.2016

After several weeks of wet and overcast conditions the sun came out today and this has affected my photos as I couldn't take them early enough to get full shade. Here are my WIPs for this week.

Story Time Blanket
All except for one of my students deserted me last Friday, giving me more time to work on this.

Moogly CAL 2016 - block #12
This one is called "English Garden". I am now four blocks behind in this CAL.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
It has been a while since I last spent time in a waiting room but an appointment yesterday gave me the opportunity to another couple of colour changes on this one.

Size 13 Slippers
I had to frog my first effort as I found I didn't have enough of one of the colours I was using. There wasn't enough to do one slipper let along a pair.

That's it from for for now. Hopefully, I will be able to finish something this week and remember to post on Friday. Until then, be sure to check out the linkw in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.

Friday FOs - 05.08.2016

I finally managed to remember to post my finished objects, so now you get three week's worth of FOs.

Trauma Teddy #22 for 2016
This Teddy was finished three weeks ago.

Trauma Teddy #23 for 2016
This is last week's Teddy.

Dishcloth #2 side 1
Dishcloth #2 side 2
Other than a few mistakes here and there and the fact that my tension doesn't seem to be completely even, I think this worked out quite well. I should probably take some measurements so that I can work out the true ratio of rows to stitches in case I decide to try this again.

And last, but not least ...

Trauma Teddy #24 for 2016
This week's 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.
