Hi everyone! Welcome to WIPW again.
I have way too many plans and idea's for the next few weeks... And way too little time to crochet it all.
My official WIP-list consists of 9 projects, and 3 projects I will most likely start before next WIPW.
I will show you now, only the 3 projects I started since Monday. Others you have already seen and did not progress significantly (which comes from having too many WIPs).
My favorite project at the moment: Richard the Whale. And he is stripy! :)
Really enjoying making this! I love the stripes!
I started Richard to have something to do while waiting for my Magic Balls to arrive...
That's right, Magic Balls. Currently, at the Freshstitches forum on Ravelry, we are holding a CAL, actually a scrap-a-long; or: make any animal out of scraps...
Now I don't own scraps, so I had nothing to do for the first week of the CAL, as that was when we would gather our scraps to create a Magic Ball.
Solution: buy a Magic Ball made by Stacey Trock herself. But that has to come from the US, so then, for keeping me occupied for the next week(s), the scrap-inspired whale was born!
It turned out I was too jealous of all lovely Magic Balls on display at the Freshstiches forum to not make one of my own. I took out some mini-skeins:
And I made a Magic Ball:
With in the background my schoolbook, that I actually should be reading instead of winding Magic Balls :P
I started a Big Mr. Toothy with my Magic Ball. Due to the fun I have in creating Richard, I did not yet get much done:
Of course, seeing as this is a Freshstitches CAL, all pattern are from Stacey Trock.
Lastly I am testing a pattern for TheNerdyKnitter:
This is the head of the Chao. I clearly work with an untested pattern, as I am very slow in my progress. Also I started over, as my hands did not tolerate the 2,5mm hook I was originally using. Never had that problem before, but well, it is always wise to listen to your body (or most definitely your hands if you're a crocheter).
So, that was it for my crochet WIPs. You might have noticed I changed the background of my blog. It is only the first of multiple changes. I will talk more about this next Monday, but for the upcoming weeks: don't be surprised if things on my blog aren't as they used to be, links don't work and things looking strange... It will all come out right in the end :)
