Friday FOs 05.04.2013

This is the second week in a row that I've had finished objects. It almost feels like I back to what I was doing last year, having at least one item finished each week. I only managed that for a little over half the year last year and I know I can't do it this year. Apart from the fact that I've already failed, I will be taking 12 weeks off to go on holidays.

Some of you will already know what at least one of my FOs are for this week. Here are FOs #11 to #15 for 2013.

Toddler's Jacket - Zoom by Ellen Gormley (GoCrochet)
I think this is the fourth one of these that I've made. I find it interested that the others I've made the colours in the variegated yarn pooled in quite interesting ways but this variegated pink didn't. I quite like the effect of the pooling, but I also like it when it doesn't pool. I will have to wait a little bit to see if the colours pool on my next one which I started today.

Hanging Towels using hand towels
 You will be seeing quite a few of these over the coming weeks. I found that I was running quite low on stocks when I was setting up for my last couple of markets so I'm going to try and make up every towel that I have bought for this purpose.

Trauma Teddy #2
I think I got the proportions on the body right this time but I may have gone a little overboard with the arms.

As usual, check out the links in the sidebar to see what everyone else has been making.




    Longer arms means bigger and better hugs! Towels are a really good idea!

  2. Lovely projects! My favorite is the bear.

    Here's my FO:

  3. I think the bear's arms need to be that long. They suit him and yes... better hugs! The toddler's jacket looks stunning.
