Friday FOs - 31.04.2017

I have been trying to get this week's trauma teddy finished today but it's still incomplete. I have, however, finished last week's trauma teddy so I can show you that one, and here it is.

Trauma Teddy #11 for 2017
I have tried to do something different with this one but it hasn't quite worked the way I wanted. the shape on the chest is supposed to be a heart. I may try again sometime but I'm not in any hurry.

That's it from me for this week. I hope to be able to get two trauma teddies finished for next Friday. I will have at least one done by then. I also hope to be able to post a Wednesday WIPs post next week, but I won't promise anything.

Friday FOs - 24.03.2017

Well, I missed doing a Wednesday WIP post again this week, and I haven't finished this week's Trauma Teddy, but I did finish something, and here it is.

Small Jug Cover
At my last market I sold the last of my small jug covers. That combined with the fact that I only have one of each of the other two sizes means that I need to make more so other projects have been put on hold for a little while.

I still need to finish this week's Trauma Teddy and will do that some time this weekend so you will get to see it next week along with next week's teddy.

That's it from me for this week.

Friday FOs - 17.03.2017

Happy St Patrick's Day to all that celebrate it.

I was a bit slack this afternoon and didn't take a photo of this week's bear while I still had daylight so the photo I ended up with is lightly out of focus, and here it is.

Trauma Teddy #10 for 2017
I'm hoping to have something a bit special for the next one of these. I just have to see if I can pull it off.

That's it from me for this week. My apologies for not showing off my WIPs on Wednesday. I will be back next week.

Friday FOs - 10.03.2017

Well, I missed last Friday's post but I have managed to get this one in, so now you get 2 weeks worth of finished objects. Don't get too excited though, the only things I have finished in the last couple of weeks are trauma teddies, and here they are.

Trauma Teddy #7 for 2017
This is the one that should have been finished a couple of weeks ago but only got finished last week.

Trauma Teddy #8 for 2017
This is last week's teddy that I finished last weekend.

Trauma Teddy #9 for 2017
And this is this week's teddy so I am now officially caught up.

I really need to get stuck into my other projects but there just seem to be so many things taking my time away from crochet.

That's it from me for this week. Hopefully I will get my act together and have more to show off next week.

Wednesday WIPS - 07.03.2017

I have been neglecting this blog for too long and it's time to do something about that. I have missed the last couple of Wednesday WIPs posts because I have started playing darts and I finish quite late on a Wednesday and I didn't do an FO Friday post last week because some of my wife's relatives were in the area and we spent some time with them. Enough of the excuses, here are the items that I have worked on in the last couple of weeks.

Story Time Blanket
Progress on this has been quite slow lately due to me using my crochet class time to finish off the week's trauma teddy. I hope to get a bit more done on this this week but time will tell.

Corner-to-Corner Pixel Blanket
This is the only project that I worked on while at the Baby Bazaar a week and a half ago. I quite like the fact that there are less ends to work in but the yarn is getting quite tangled. I'm sure it will sort itself out once I start on the decreases but I really need to figure out a better system.

Shopping Bag
I'm a little worried that I won't have enough of this cotton to finish this off so I may have to substitute something else. It won't be the first time I've done that so we will see how I go.

That it from me for now. Hopefully I will be back on Friday with at least 2 bears being those completed in the last couple of week. This week's bear may also be finished so you may get to see three.
