WIP Wednesday

So I’ve just whipped this up out of some old shirts – I made that sound easy… The crochet was…. Being attacked by two kittens whilst crocheting, not so much. It looks like a sleeve but isn’t. Hopefully the it will prove to be useful around the home (more later).
I’ve also started a shawl that I found a little tricky to get going. A few rows in and it’s getting a bit easier. I’ll post the link to the free pattern when I post about it again.

Life gets in the way

Happy New Year!

I’d like to say I’ll be posting more this year. Maybe I will! I certainly want to; we’ll see. As the title says… Life gets in the way… sometimes.

In December, I finished another amigurumi doll that I designed myself again adapting the lalylala Dirk the Dragon pattern (it’s so inspiring- well worth buying).

I designed a cow/calf. It’s half the size of the original Dirk doll and has horns, different ears and a simple tail. The scarf is a nice loose stripey you crochet that was quick to make (apart from the weaving in of ends!).

I’ve realised I’ve not shared the half sized sheep I made last year. I will as I was really pleased with how it turned out. The calculations when halving the original pattern all happened then and I just applied to this project.
