This post will be about finished projects, some works in progress Il be adding another blog about creativity and my plans for the rest of Feb.
January has been and gone! were into February YAYY the month of love! I don’t know about anyone else but I like February because it feels like the new year is finally starting still just as cold in England but that’s not all bad as I get to wear my finished crochet projects.
As I’ve been quite busy starting a new job and working more hours my finish projects for the end of January are less than I liked as sadly life got in the way of my crochet addiction.
I do still have one finished project and I’ve been making loads of progress on some of my WIPS, meaning march will be all the finished projects!
These mittens designed by Kath Webber for the Simply crochet magazine are my finished project and I managed to finish them in two whole days which is a new record, As I don’t know about other people but I sadly have the attention span of a goldfish when it comes to finishing projects.
I love the mittens the are cosy and fit me well. The pattern is simply to understand and they work up so quick, I used a style craft special DK in Parma violet, it was a 100g ball and I still have about 20g left.
I’ve been aiming to finish a lot of started projects for one of my new year resolutions, here are some of my favourite ones.
My dumpling kitties are something I can’t stop making I didn’t know I’d like to create little creatures as much as I do, I think it might have something to do with the fact I’m partial to a fluffy cat anyway, and my sisters keep requesting them. I’ve currently got 2 on the go a love kitty and a messy stripe kitty, Il be adding updates of these in my crochet project tab.This is a pattern by Sarah Sloyer Who you can find on ravelry and elsewhere
The Peacock bag is such a good project to work on I almost don’t want to finish it, (I say almost because I secretly want to use my new crochet bag for every outing). The pattern by Tatsiana at Lilla Björn blog is so beautiful it was a CAL in august 2016 meaning there are so many parts to it. I started mine in Nov 2016, but I like how the patterns are split into 6 parts including how to line your bag.
I’m a regular reader of Tatsiana’s blog now from this project and all the things she creates are so beautiful and intricate, I didn’t realise how good front crochet was until I started this project.
I’m on part 4-5 at the minute and am using Drops Safran cotton wool, her blog gives a full description of what type of yarn is best to use, I used some old stash instead of buying new.
Contour shawl is the one I’ve been working on at least every other day and I really do love the simplicity of the pattern and the affect you get from doing the repeats. It’s by Joanne Scarce of the crochet project I found the pattern on raverly ive used Katia Jaipur mercerized cotton a lacey yarn, as I wanted a thinner delicate kind of shawl for the spring summer months.
This is defiantly a pattern I will be making again it has pictures to follow (my favourite kind of pattern) and the instructions are clear, I’m hoping to get this project finished first!
Hopefully this post hasn’t bored you too much with project overload, Thanks for reading!
