I finished the walls on my Tuscany! All that’s left is the backstitching!! I’m over the moon to finally finish this. (I put my square doily away because I was getting bored with it for now. Plus, realistically, one Finish A Thing a month is more likely to get finished.)
I finished my hat! I love it. It’s soft and warm. I tried Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off for the first time and loved that too.
My oldest turned 7 last week, and requested a T Rex about a week before his birthday. He’s so sweet, he said “I know it’s short notice so it’s ok if it’s not done on my birthday. He’s the coolest guy ever. He wanted to put the safety eyes on so we that last week. I got a cold too, (gross), but am slowly getting over it and ready to finish his lil dino.
I can’t get the picture to load. Oh well. Another day.
I was working on another neat hat for me, the Women’s Peaked Cap (by Yarnspirations), but I tried it on at round 14, like it suggests, and it was too small. Well that was about 1/3 of the way, so I frogged it and started over with a larger hook. It’s a fun pattern, so I took it as practice for the second round, and I’ll be even happier knowing it will fit! I named mine Reichenbach Falls Cap. It looks like a stylized, feminine version of the deerstalker Holmes is famous for. Now I can solve mysteries and go on adventures in style! If that’s not enough UK fangirl for you, I love to work on that hat while watching The Great British Bake Off on PBS on Sunday nights. swoon!
I started following The Crochet Crowd and they’re the ones who suggested this cute hat. They have some very cool blanket patterns and ideas too. The videos and posts are fun and light; I’m glad I found them. I like having a few of those unicorn-chaser websites to go to when the world gets dark.
Day 8 of the TIAS came out this morning! I’ll upload the progress on Day 7 and 8 soon!
