Ha, suck it doubters! I do finish a project every now and then. It's almost never something for myself, but hey...
Anyway, I made a little fairy that resembles my niece for Xmas/Birthday/Your-Aunt-Fails-at-Time-Management Day. Ahem. We gave her a book as well. I made an attempt at jewelry but need to figure out how to work with tiny little bits of wire when I have arthritis in my hands. Heh.
I finally finished her while we were down visiting - her constituent parts had been made, but she needed putting together. She's from the pattern/recipe by NeedleNoodles, who is also the author of the very awesome Creepy Cute Crochet.
Tom was kind enough to take some photos:
Those of you who are squeamish should avert your eyes for the next one, which made me do a spit-take:
I made a little scrubby bath toy to go with a bath book for our baby nephew.
And before we left I frantically raced to finish my crocheted tote bag and sew a lining into it. It didn't turn out quite how I'd hoped, but it's somewhat functional. No photo of it.
I cast on, frogged, and cast on again a beginner pattern for a lace washcloth about 10 times during the trip. It think it's finally going well.
And I've cast on, frogged, and cast on again for a gift due soon-like that is making me ever so slightly grumpy and forcing me to admit that I should probably review a video of knitting in the round with circular needles because I'm clearly screwing up somewhere.
