I haven’t any finished projects to show you today so I thought I would give you a peep at all the things I have been working on lately.
The most pressing item is this
It’s for my grandson’s birthday which is at the end of the month. Originally I had wanted to buy the doll and just make clothes but I couldn’t find what I wanted so I am now a bit pressed for time. This is especially so as I am cobbling the doll and clothes together from various patterns, adapting to get what I want. And although the hair looks finished in fact, having made most of it, I now realise that I would get on better with smaller needles and, as the head is bigger than in the pattern it comes from, that I also need more stitches.
I did crochet another eight rows of my blanket while watching Formula one: qualifying and the race.
The main object being to free up the light brown wool, of which I had a limited quantity, to use for the hair for the doll.
I have also been working on some more crochet plants that I might have finished by now if it wasn’t for getting on to the doll.
Just a teaser here.
I’ve also worked on this when I needed something easy, such as Friday morning’s craft group.
It’s almost long enough to be made up.
As you can see it’s a lot bigger than when I first showed it to you.
I have spent the last few weeks measuring it hopefully and finding that “I only need another two inches”. But when I lay it down in a relaxed maner it is still too short!
And of course there is still my second sock to make.
I have finished this first one but am waiting to make the other before showing you the pair.
And of course there are a couple of other things that have been started but put to one side for the moment.
