Lots of Finished Objects – just no time for blogging

Fingerless gloves — done!

Wrist warmers — One pair done!

Bunny hat — done!

Other stuff — in progress!

Now to find the time to write all the patterns down, post them, and write some proper blogposts for them.

As you can see from my lack of posting, I’ve been a bit side-tracked. “What could be more important than blogging about crocheting and knitting?” you may ask. Well… except the actual crocheting and knitting I’ve been up to, I’ve also been taking some online courses. And, you know, working (i.e. that thing you do so you can get money to buy more yarn).

The courses mostly have to do with writing (both fiction and non-fiction) and the homework has taken up quite a bit of time. Especially since the stories tend to go from flash fiction to novella in about half an hour of plotting! If you’d like to read some of the stories, head over to my other blog, Hersenskim.

However, I am making a point of at least typing up the patterns this week so that I can go and post them on Ravelry!

Not too bad if winter looks like this!

In the meantime, you can buy the bunny hat pattern over here. The pattern is by the very talented BriAbbyHMA. Trust me, the pattern is beautifully written, gives sizes for various ages and is worth every cent. And that’s coming from someone paying in Rand!

Here are few pictures of my finished objects. (Just trust me when I say little Yiskah looks absolutely adorable in her bunny hat!)

You can follow me on Instagram to see what other yarny (yes, that’s a word now) things I get up to. Like the scarf I just started using the Paris stitch. (I don’t know what it is, but I just love this stitch!) The wool is a light purple wool from The Stash I inherited from my grandmother (a whole 200 g so yay!). So it is kind of a heirloom scarf…

Stuff still in progress…

I’m currently busy with the following:

  • An adult Jack Skellington beanie
  • The purple heirloom scarf
  • The peacock shawl
  • A second pair of my “Nettie’s Wrist Warmers”
  • Baby beanies for the charity group I am part of
