Friday FOs - 29.04.2016

I don't think anybody will be surprised by what I have managed to finish this week, so here it is.

Trauma Teddy #11
I'm not sure about using a self striping yarn like this but it was given to for making bears so that's what I'm going to use it for.

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 - 27.04.2016

I haven't worked on as many of my projects as I would have liked to but the ones I have worked on have seen good progress. Here are some of the projects that I have worked on this week.

Rose Pixel Blanket - square 1
I think I need to investigate this technique a bit more to see if there is a way to carry the yarn from one row to the next and reduce the number of ends. I'm not looking forward to sewing in all of them.

Tunisian Crochet Short Rows Scarf
With all the projects that I have on the go I still went and started another. I wanted another Tunisian item to put into the show later this year since that is one category that I have a good chance of winning.

Moogly CAL Blanket 2015
I started putting last year's Moogly CAL Blanket together. I will be starting this year's CAL shortly, even though I am already 8 blocks behind.

I also worked on the Story Time Blanket (finished one column and started the next) and the white baby blanket (not that you would be able to tell) but didn't take photos of them because I kinda forgot about them until I went to write this post.

Hoepfully, I will get something finished for Friday so do come back and check. In the meantime, check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.

Friday FOs - 22.04.2016

I have been quite productive this week, although Wednesday's post might not have shown it. Here are the items that I have finished this week.

Trauma Teddy #9 for 2016
Trauma Teddy #10 for 2016
Two more Trauma Teddies finished.


Tunisian Bamboo Stitch Beanie
This Beanie can be worn either as a slouch hat or, with the cuff rolled up, as a beanie so is quite versatile. It is my first attempt at Bamboo Stitch and I'm not sure if I got it right or not, but it looks OK to me. It is a bit small for me so I couldn't really model it.

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 - 20.04.2016

It has been a bit of a slow week with my crafting. I have only worked on three projects, but two of them have resulted in a finished object so you will get to see them on Friday. Here is the only other project that I have worked on.

The Final Square for the Moogly 2015 CAL
I have finally managed to get the last square done and now it is time to start joining the squares.

All Squares In Their Final Configuration
I kinda agonised about the positioning for all the squares, trying to make sure the balance of colours was good. I'm still not quite sure about it but it took me a while to get to this point so this is the layout I'm going to use.

That it from me for now. Be sure to check back on Friday to see what I have finished. In the meantime, checkout the links in the sidebar to see what others have been working on.

Friday FOs - 15.04.2016

I didn't manage to finish this week's trauma teddy but I'm sure I will have it finished for next week. I did finish the two jackets that I have been working on over the last fer months, so here they are.

Jacket for One yo

Jacket for 2 1/2 yo
Now that these two jackets are finished I can get back to my regular crafting habits as shown on Wednesday.

Wednesday WIPs - 13.04.2016

Well, the two jackets are now finished so I can now get back to my regular crafting habits, choosing a different project every day. Here are the WIPs that I have worked on this week.

Butterfly Square - side 1
Butterfly Square - side 2
I managed to get another 10 rows done on the latest square while trying to sell at a local market.

Tunisian Bamboo Stitch Beanie
I'm not sure why the bit that I have added this week leans the way it does but it has been a while since I worked on it so that may have something to do with it. I only need to add another inch and I will be able to gather the top and finish it off.

Baby Blanket
Progress on this one is ahrdly notceable but progress has been made.

4 Owls
I made all the feet and started attaching the eyes thinking that I had made all the parts, but when I laid them out for a photo I realised that there was still one part that I have to make. I can make it once I geet the rest all joined so it's no big deal. My biggest problem with these is making sure the parts match up as I have used slightly different colours in each owl.

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

Friday FOs - 08.04.2016

I managed to finish a couple of trauma teddies this week, last week's and this week's bears, so I am pretty much caught up with them. Here they are.

Trauma Teddy #7 for 2016
Trauma Teddy #8 for 2016
Unfortunately, the camera decided it needed to use the flash for the sceond bear and the colours are all washed out in that photo.

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