Well… It’s been a while again I know. I apologize. Life just seems to get away from me this time of year.
But! I have actually managed to sit, get some work done. My problem is, I told myself, no starting anything new, until I finish what I’m working on. Great in theory, but it’s put me a bit behind schedule for Christmas gifts.
Needless to say, I have gotten a few things done.
I did finish my poncho. I love it, and just in time for our temperatures to start dropping for fall.
I have also sat and done some work on the ballerina. She is finally starting to get some definition thanks to being able to get some backstitching done.
Lastly, I did start another portable crochet project, just for hands busy during rehearsals, classes, trips to the park, etc. I think it’s going to be cute, it’s a bag, but what I like about it, is the handles will actually start right above the base, and will attach fully to the side of the bag thanks to a section for each handle of “back loop only” single crochets. So, as the handle climbs, it will pick up each of the open front loops of those stitches. There is also some front loop only stitches for an inside pocket to be built as well. It’s frankly ingenious if you ask me. But, here is the start of that one.
Finally getting my creative vibe back, and I’ve been looking at loads of patterns from lion brand and pattons for quick and easy gift ideas.
Keep smiling everybody!
