Okay. So wow. This took me a lot longer than I thought (The baby shower is this Sunday XD). The end rows are about an hour all the way around and I like to think of myself as a pretty quick crocheter, but I can only go about at hour or two at a time. So this pretty much has been going on for a few months. I used a G hook (4.25 MM) and Bernat Cottontots in Lemon Berry, Lime Berry, and Sweet Cream. The stripe pattern is completely random. The pictures are a little off in color (lighting a bit too yellow). I'm excited to be able to start a new project now.
That is because I've been working on a big time consuming blanket. It will be done and posted soon. It's a small baby blanket but it's taken me forever... All that is left is weaving in the ends and washing it.
I've been meaning to post but had so much stuff for school piled on last minute. I'm officially done with my freshman year of college. Now I have to like hurry myself up and start creating again. I have to make two hats and I'm using a really nice pink vanna's choice. They're both birthday presents. One for my best friend and one for my sisters. I will do them probably tonight (instead of working on algebra for my placement test on saturday morning) and post as soon as I finish. I'd also like to work on some more creatures. =]
I'm so behind on the crocheting that I wish I was doing right now. I'm unfortunately wrapped up in this awful terrible horrible english paper (30 pages long analysis on the poetry of margaret atwood). So I am amidst procrastination. I have a list of things I need to make though!
Monkey for emily (gift)
Hat for molly
Flowers for other hats
Blanket for lindsays baby (gift)
Ninja for Noël (gift)
Hat for Aj (gift)
Hat for Kurt (gift)
Notice how much profit I will be making... Like essentially nothing haha.
I think I may have to break down and make an etsy account... I just hate not getting full amount. Also people charge less on there for more complicated hats than what I make... but I feel like any less wouldn't really be that worth it since sometimes they're painful to make (bad hands). I think though that beggars simply cannot be choosers. Bahhhh Also I want to pick up spinning. Also I want to get back into sewing. Also I want to learn how to use my serger that I have never used because I can't find the cone thread...
Sigh i wish i had more money and space for crafts... don't we all.
