Another busy week here but not much of it was crafty. I've been experimenting with combining crochet and knit for this hat which I managed to get finished a few days ago.
Have just reviewed my list for the Year of Projects and I've decided to abandon the baby's blanket that should have been finished by the end of August. Main reason is that its still only about half done and I'm 'over it'. There are a few reasons (a) I've made this same pattern before; (b) I used 8ply wool which I think is too heavy for a baby; (c) my calculations were wrong and it was not big enough - could have compensated by putting a wider border on it but I still wasn't happy; and finally (d) I think the baby is due soon. SO .... I bought a new pattern from Heather of JustCrochet which I should be able to have finished in time. Its her latest pattern and is for a little boy's vest, pants, hat and booties.
So I don't fail completely with the YoP, I whipped up this little soap sack last night (just need to do the washer to go with it)
.. and last thing I have to show you today is this little doiley (7" diameter) which I made as a gift for a dear friend of mine. Hope she likes it...
Hope you all have a good week. xox
