Crochet Jag? Me? No…..

It started with the Artfully Simply Cowl:  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.  This time actually reading the pattern and making it the right height.

Just in time for valentines day. 🙂

Then I pulled out an old WIP and finished that:

I’m actually quite proud of it.  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.  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?  Nah.

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

Technical Difficulties!

Whew, that took a bit, couldn’t figure out where my images had gone!

Finished Objects!  YAY!

First finished object of the year, mittens!

They match a hat from September

The mittens look odd, but stretch nicely:

Second finished object!

Socks!

Using Regia Zoofari in white.  Used Cat Borhdi’s Sweet Tomato Heel, which i learned on her youtube channel.  It fits very nicely, but isn’t my favorite heel.  Nice to try something different.

I’ve cast on a couple of new projects as well:

a crochet cowl and some dk weight socks  hopefully both will be quick

Also, new yarn!

No, I haven’t already broken my cold sheeping, but this was my last splurge from 2014.  I had a credit at the Loopy Ewe and knew that it would make cold sheeping difficult, (especially in the spring/summer when I’m missing new yarn input to the stash) so I went ahead and used it just after xmas.

Here it is:

I wanted bright, since the early months of the year are so dreary.

Kitt has a new trick, sleeping in my lap.  I’ve always wanted a lap cat. 🙂

But he might want to learn how to relax. 😉

It’s finished…

My entrelac shawl was finally finished, finishing it completely destroyed my motivation to do anything else for WEEKS however.

It is over 9 feet long and almost impossible to take a decent picture of. I have been wearing it since it was finished and I love the large scarf feel of it.

On the doll front I have a few new acquisitions:

A suit for my homme dolls arrived. When I put Thanatos in it and posed him beside Erebus they ended up looking like a mob boss and one of his thugs.

The Tris Divergent doll arrived, and was rebodied to a spare pivotal body (Frank Sinatra), she is extremely pretty and rather innocent looking. Well compared to some of my other girls.

The Divergent Four doll also came home. Thankfully he doesn’t have to be rebodied.

My Catching Fire Katniss was finally rebodied onto a pivotal body (Paso Doble). She’s gorgeous, but very pouty.

I really have to stop buying dolls that I can’t rebody onto Obitsu bodies. That leaves me with only Nuetra and Peace as possible skintones. Thankfully Barbie Collector is getting better about telling you what skintone a doll has.
