Friday FOs - 15.06.2018

It is time to show everone this week's finished objects, and here they are.

A Green Sheep
This is the first of many sheep of all different colours. This one will be going to my sister for when she reads to my great niece who's favourite book is "Where's the Green Sheep". I have already been asked to make another one of these for one of the community centres where I teach crochet.

Octopus #1
I went to Spotlight's Knit in Public day last Saturday and picked up a pattern for this one. The idea is to make these for premie babies so that they have something to hold on to. Apparantly, the curly-cues are similar to the umbilicle cord.

Comfort Bear #24 for 2018
Amother comfort bear ready for service.

That's it from me for this week. I hope to be back next Friday with more FOs. Until then, have a good one.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 08.06.2018

Another Friday post with two week's worth of finished items to show off due to my poor memory (I almost forgot about them tonight), and here they are, in the order that I completed them.

Large Jug Cover
This one doesn't sit flat because of a mistake I made in the first round but I don't think that will matter once it is put to use covering a bowl or jug.

Shopping Bag in Pouch
Shopping Bag out of Pouch
Someone gave me this metalic yarn and I though it would make a good shopping bag and this is the result.

Comfort Bear #22 for 2018
Last week's Comfort Bear.

Dishcloth #3
Another Dishcloth for one of the community centres that I teach at. This one is quite rough due to the number of knots in the yarn. Since it was only a dishcloth neither myself or the centre are really worried about how it looks.

Shopping Bag in Pouch
Shopping Bag out of Pouch
Another Shopping Bag. I don't think I have enough of these yet as I'm thinking of making some for my own use, especially since the major supermarkets are phasing out plastic bags.

Comfort Bear #23 for 2018
This week's comfort bear.

That's all for now. I hope to be more regular with my posts in future, but I'm not promising anything. Until next time, have a good one.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 25.05.2018

After taking a photo of my finished objects last week I then forgot to post them so I have two weeks of finishes for you this week. This week I managed to finish 5 items thanks to time spent collecting for the Red Sheild Appeal. Here are all my finished objects for the last tow weeks.

Comfort Bear #20 for 2018
 Another sparky bear, this time the sparkles actually show up in the photo.

Beanie in Collingwood Colours

This is my third attempt at getting this beanie the right size.

That's last week's finished objects, now for this week's.

The first of three Plastic Bag Holders

The third of three Plastic Bag Holders
These plastic bag holders may become obsolete in the next month or so as the big supermarkets phase out plastic bags but I figure I had sold a few and needed to replace them so I have.


Comfort Bear #21 for 2018
I have gone back to standard colour combinations for this week's comfort bear.

Dishcloth #2 side 1
Dishcloth #2 side 2
For the second dishcloth that I have made for Springdale Community Centre I have gone for a Crochetknit version which gives a double sided effect.

That's it for now, until next time, have a good one, and if you see someone collecting for charity, please give generously, especially if it's for the Salvation Army.

Friday FOs - 11.05.2018

I was hoping to use my week off teaching to finish a couple more items but I was needed to help with preparations for this year's Red Shield Appeal which is being launched tomorrow morning. I have managed to get one item finished this week and here it is.

Comfort Bear #19 for 2018
Another bear using sparkly yarn (which doesn't seem to show up in a photo). I'm still keeping up my average of 1 bear per week. It will be interesting to see if I can make all through the year.

That's it from me for this week. Until next time, have a good one.

Wash Cloth
I was asked to make a few of these for one of the community centres that I go to to teach crochet so expect to see more in the not too distant future.

That's it from me for this week. I don't know that I will have this many items to show you next week but I will try. Until next time, have a good one.

Wednesday WIPs - 25.04.2018

I have a night off from my usual activities due to it being a public holiday ao I thought I would show a couple of the things that I have worked on this week.

Knitted Beanie in Collingwood Colours
The person I have been making these for has informed me that the first is too big so I've gone done a couple of sizes in needled and making this one a bit smaller. I haven't been able to give the second beanie to her yet so I don't know if it's going to be too big or not. I may have to make another ofter I finish this one.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
I had quite a bit of time in a  waiting room so I made good progress on this one. It's close to being big enough now, so when I get to the next corner I will be changing to black for the last time around.

That's all for now. I should be back on Friday with at least one FO. Until then, have a good one.

Richard.
