Crochet

WIP Wednesday – August 16, 2017

Not the most productive week, but things are moving along. ๐Ÿ˜‰

โœ… Rainbow Lana Kimono – It came out bigger than anticipated (like my last one) but I think it will be cozy for my friend to wear. She works at a bank so I have a feeling it will keep her cozy in the coming chily months.

โœ… Elphaba – She can’t come and go by bubble (like Galinda) but she’s headed to my aunt to be included in a pre-college care package. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Espadrilles – Nill. Again. Poor baby is going to grow out of them before they are done! ๐Ÿ™„

Dolls – Again, no time to work on them. Things are crazytown over here!

Sparkly Lana – Progress! I take her to church with me and crochet during worship. I find that my brain allows me to focus so much better when my hands are busy.


Baby Blanket. So I ๐Ÿธed and started over. I figured out why you’re supposed to do it in BLO. It makes the color change less obvious and I really hated how it looked on one side. Also because it had 7 ridges, when you folded it in quarters, it got all wonky. I started over and added another ridge so it’s wider.I am alos working in HDC instead of SC and the ripples are much looser and less sharp. it was like a 90 degree angle before and now it’s like a 110 maybe? I’d have to use a protractor! ๐Ÿ˜œ


Ice Cream Coozies – I have a couple crocheted without their embellishments. I designed this 3D pineapple. not sure if I love it but all the other pineapples I keep finding are coming out too big, or they curl too much when I use a bigger hook. I am going to test out doing embellishments with Lion Brand 24/7 cotton so it’s still in the cotton/polyester family, but I’m not sure hoe they will look and if they’ll attach properly. Thoughts and ideas welcome!

I think that’s it. I wanted to squeak this in before mindight! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Love,

Joey
