This is the Baby Yoda I made out of Simply Soft. I know the color is not babyish, but it's what I had on hand, and good for practice. It turned out ok, but my guage was off, so it's kinda large.
I made my son a blanket that he loves. This was also in the 7 Day Afghan book. It was crocheted with 2 skeins of Caron 10 0z skeins, Rainbow something. My memory is slipping. Shouldn't be happening so soon, LOL. It only took 3 days to finish, but again I barely had enough to do thefringe. I need to work on my tension!
OK,that's all the patience I have for today using this laptop. I have tons of pics to show still, but I will try and do that later this week.
So I gave in...and broke my vow. How sad. I am almost done with one scarf. I can get that done today, and get cracking on the candle flame scarf soon. I have been busy doing small projects like dishcloths and bookmarks. I need the instant gratification right now, especially since I told myself I would not start any more big projects until the 3 remaining are done.
I want to learn to do socks on 2 circs. Silver's Sock class has a great new tutorial up, so I decided to go for it. I don't really like magic loop. Seems like there's too much moving the yarn from one end of the needle to the other, trying to keep track of where you are....so I thought I would just go back to using DPN's. But the circ method seems to be slightly faster, without having to worry about ladders and picking up stitches, and losing your needles. Keeping track of 5 needles is somewhat hard in my household... I purchased two Harmony circs from Knitpicks along with some yarn. It was less than $20, but I still feel bad about giving in...But I guess we all do it, and I have been working relentlessly on these 3 projects. Maybe I will finish up with 2 of them the circs get here!
The next post will be pics of dishcloths and bookmarks. Prepare yourself!!
