Hex Blanket progress (7)

It was cool enough over the long weekend that I actually felt like working on my blanket for a little while. I didn't get much joining done, but I did get the entire next round of hexes laid out and held in place with stitch markers. I also did some weaving of ends, but there's... Continue Reading →

Mood Octopus progress (5)

All of the crochet on this project is finished! I got the last few arms done today, so now I have the whole weekend to get everything sewn together and add the finishing details. Every time I make an octopus I complain about having to make 8 arms. With this one I had to make... Continue Reading →

Mood Octopus progress (4)

I've added a few more adorable tiny octopus arms today. At this rate I might actually get some knitting done on my cardigan this week too. The deeper I get into this project the more I realize how daunting the amount of sewing involved actually is. Still, I won't let that keep me from enjoying... Continue Reading →

Mood Octopus progress (3)

I'm still slowly making my way through this project. I got a few octopus arms crocheted today, and might try to do one more this evening if my elbow cooperates. At this rate I should easily be able to get them all finished in time to sew everything together this weekend.

Mood Octopus progress (2)

I managed to finish the yellow half of the octopus body today. Now I just have the yellow arms to finish and the stuffing and sewing to do. This is a fun little project, even if I do have to take my time with it. I can't wait to have it finished and sitting on... Continue Reading →

Mood Octopus progress

This weekend was fairly busy with family stuff so I didn't get a lot of crafting done. Instead I spent a long time kayaking and then hanging out with other people inside of my house with no masks on (everybody fully vaxed). It felt strange but was really nice. I did crochet a few rounds... Continue Reading →

Reversible Mood Octopus started!

One of my goals for this month was to make some amigurumi since it's been a while. I started this octopus over the weekend. The pattern has you essentially make two octopuses in different colors, that you sew together to make it reversible. I've finished crocheting all the parts for the blue side and am...

Hex Blanket progress (6)

I have some decent blanket progress to report. I actually finished joining another round of hexes. You can see that I still have a ton of ends to weave in because I've been willfully ignoring them as I go. You can also see that the blanket is taking up most of the floor space in...

Pull Me Over finished!!

It's all done and it barely took one month from start to finish! I finished the bind off on the second sleeve yesterday morning and then threw it in to soak. This yarn bled a ton, so much so that I eventually gave up on trying to get all the excess dye out. I soaked... Continue Reading →
