Day 16: Swatches

So, I liked the lap blanket that I finger crocheted a few days ago so much I decided that I wanted to make a full-sized afghan in the same technique and material. Today presented the perfect opportunity to start that

Well, today was not nearly as productive as it could have been/I expected. It started off with a call from a recruiter (I am currently job hunting) while I was still in bed and declined from there. But, I did

Moxie keeps trying to eat my monsters that I make, so I made her her own toy out of some cheap yarn. It’s stuffed with pollyfill and catnip. She seems to like it well enough, although I doubt it’ll stop

Day 21 – Crocheted Fractal

I started a turtle, but didn’t feel like following directions, so I did this instead. It’s the same yarn as the blue eyed octopus. I may stick something in the middle and attach it to a hair clip or something.
