Crochet Jag? Me? No…..

It started with the Artfully Simply Cowl:Β  Seen lovingly draped over Katie’s butt in this picture.

Then one dreadfully boring evening I made two crochet bowls:

Kitt wasn’t sure about the turtle one.

Then I made another crochet bowl to match the grey one above.Β  This time actually reading the pattern and making it the right height.

Just in time for valentines day. πŸ™‚

Then I pulled out an old WIP and finished that:

I’m actually quite proud of it.Β  AwesomeSister chose the colours for it and it lives with her now.

Then I went digging around my craft books and found 101 one-skein crochet projects and made these gloves

v-stitch is quite fun

Finally I was inspired to make a …. well …. thingy.

He’s fun to play with.Β  I’m going to make another one but maybe with fun fur instead of smooth yarn.

It has a wire frame making it very posable.

But a crochet jag?Β  Nah.

Β The kitties are getting used to some new things around the house

There is no crafting, only zuul, er, gargoyle

My crochet experiment all consuming project of importance can now stand by himself:

He had to get new feet to do this though, here he is showing you his original feet:
His head has my flummoxed though, I keep trying to get the shape I want set in my head, butΒ  it just isn’t happening! blah.Β  He’s starting to get impaitient:
I have got a little bit of knitting done.Β  I manged to put in the first afterthought heel on my New Year’s socks.

My homme dolls got some new clothes.Β  Pants from hazelstreetdezigns and shirts from clear lan.

Katie is doing fine after her surgery.Β  She is back to her grumpy self.
Our solstice bunny is still visiting occasionally:
I still take random pictures of her:

Catching up

Whew, I really fell down the rabbit hole there. Mostly because….life. Yeah…

There's been a lot of sleeping going on.

 

A little knitting as well. These funny things came off my needles.

 

Sliver, in noro taiyo. They are ridiculous but I love them. Found some tigers eye buttons to embellish with as well. I'm planning to knit a simple stockinette mitt in the same colourway to wear underneath them.

 

This guy appeared as well

 

 

I'm finding him to be simply awesome. He's fun to pose, and I love looking at him.

 

I'll end this post with some random stuff and a picture of Katie from this evening.

 
 

 

 

Catching up on Christmas

Wow did this holiday just zoom by…

oh, by the way, I changed my theme again. I wanted something bright and cheerful. πŸ˜€

Last time I posted I actually lied to you, my last Christmas knitted gift wasn’t finished. But they were super secret and I couldn’t blog them.

So the spinning will definitely continue in 2013.

I finished the Moonshine Fibers Polworth I was spinning, I fractal plied it (for extra barber poling/colour mixing) as an experiment.

Of course he is for the dolls…

robin and new pet

I’m looking forward to playing with him a bit more, I haven’t been feeling all that well and his posability (he’s all pipecleaners inside) needs to be tested. πŸ˜‰

I also need to go and stitch up his leg, the pipecleaner is sticking out. >_<

I started a new project, a Through the Woods hood.

It is way further than this now, I’m hoping to finish it before the end of the week. πŸ™‚

So that is my huge holiday catch up. I hope everyone is having a great new year.

I’m planning on doing my yearly round up before the end of the week, so (hopefully) I’ll see you then. πŸ™‚
