Well, despite taking a fall that left me bedridden for a couple days (the bruises I have are unbelievable!), I’ve had a busy week! Plus, it snowed yesterday, so I was happy to spend the day doing nothing but crocheting.
I started and finished Valentine’s Day-themed scarf.
It’s a slightly modified version of a pattern I found online. I think the pattern was written wrong, or else I was reading it wrong, so I didn’t follow it. I’m really happy with it because I had the idea for it before I even found a pattern.
I also made Nate a pair of slippers.
He wants an orange border around the foot-hole spot, but he has been wearing them almost nonstop (see: hair and dirt all over the slippers). I made them the same way I made my own slippers last week, but held two strands together the whole time. They’re a lot less floppy than mine, so I want to make myself another pair with two strands held together throughout.
I started on my half of a blanket I’m working on with my mom, but couldn’t get good pictures of it. I took advantage of “Dollar Days” at Michaels and bought several balls of Lily Sugar’n Cream for use on a pattern for an owl purse I purchased. I never buy patterns, but this one really cool.
Last, but not least (well, maybe least), I made this little puff…
It’s a slightly lopsided hexipuff, or Apiary Puff. The pattern was originally a knit pattern for a Beekeeper’s Quilt. Knit a ton of these little hexagons, stuff them with fiberfill or yarn scraps, sew them together, and you have a rad honeycomb blanket. I’m so glad the pattern was adapted for crochet. The hexipuff was quick and fun to make, and I really like the way sock yarn patterns out. I always have a ton of projects going on so it’s going to take me a million years to make enough for anything, but I’m happy to have a little something to work on when I don’t feel like working on a big something.
I guess that’s about it. I did manage to start something with the blue and white mill end yarn I bought last Monday, but I didn’t get very far before I decided to work on something else (of course!). I’ll have a picture whenever I finish it though :]
