Project Roundup

Wednesday was Petra’s birthday…. ….which she was happy to spend among the plants. As for what I’m making, I’ve got this little square pot on the go, for some storage in my wardrobe. I like the colour scheme of this yarn – maybe I should make it an outfit…. I’ve also got another facade on…… Continue reading Project Roundup

Project Roundup

I finally had the motivation to make a summer garland this week, after many years of having it sitting on the To-Make List. Below are the crocheted elements I’ve made so far – I need two more duplicates, and then they all need to be strung together.

We’re now three sets of eight in, and it’s looking very colourful. I can’t wait to see it all sewn together, but I’ve still eight…… Continue reading Crochet Happenings

Well, it’s now in six skeins and bundles of yarn, because I want to knit it instead – and adjust the jumper pattern…… Continue reading Project Roundup

I have a few old/didn’t-work-out-right doll clothes that I was trying to recycle this week, but they’re not agreeing with me, so I may have to do some more thinking. As always, there are books-in-progress on my desk…. ….and I impulsively started crocheting myself a rainbow beanie for winter. I have no idea how I…… Continue reading Project Roundup
