I liked my cat dishcloth so much I decided to make a spooky bat to go with it. Well, right now it is just a bat butt. Crochet goes so much faster than knitting for me, so I expect this one to be done in no time!
Progress! It seems like at best I can get one pattern repeat done in an evening. That means I still have quite a few nights left to go before this is finished. Good thing it is beautiful and the pattern is still interesting enough to keep me engaged.
Taking a break for a few days to make my black cat dishcloth was exactly what I needed. I came back to this project refreshed. I really do enjoy the lace quite a bit. I think I might try to incorporate lace in whatever my next big project is too. Speaking of next projects, I've... Continue Reading →
It's finished! It's still a bit hard to see unless the light is good but I am very happy with it anyway. It is fun for Halloween but it also reminds me of my own little black cat!
Hopefully now you can see the pattern enough to see that it's a black cat! I got a huge amount done over the holiday weekend and now there's only a few rows left to finish it off. I wish it wasn't quite so hard to see but I still really like it.
I had to mess around with the flash and different angles but at least now you can tell there's some sort of pattern happening. It always feels so good to work on something quick and easy when you've been in the middle of a bigger project for a while. I expect to be refreshed and... Continue Reading →
It's the spooky season and I decided I needed to make something that was quick and fun to celebrate. Sadly black yarn doesn't photograph so well. Hopefully I can figure out a way to show this project off somehow. It's going to be cute!
Tonight I finished up the 20th pattern repeat and put in another lifeline. It's a bit harder to see than the last one since I used gray yarn. I probably should be adding them a little more often since it gives me so much peace of mind. I feel relatively confident I could fix a... Continue Reading →
I've been thinking a lot about how this is the second scarf I have worked on this year, and how both of them had a complicated element to learn. Mostly I've been thinking about this while fiddling with lace or grabbing my crochet hook for the next row with nupps. I think I enjoy knitting... Continue Reading →
I made some small progress today. I'm so glad to be home and able to start getting back into a routine again. My netflix queue and wine definitely missed me while I was gone 😉
I'm officially halfway done! Although according to my measuring tape it is a little shorter than I would have hoped. I suppose it will stretch out quite a bit once I block it to show off the lace anyway.
You can see much more clearly in this photo how far I've come since I put in my lifeline. It's probably about time for another one. I am fully into the painful middle part of this scarf, where I'm constantly measuring and counting rows to see when I pass the midway mark. My plan is... Continue Reading →
