week 100

blue elephant with ears

I attached ears to the crochet elephant and it’s slightly weighing it down even though the ears aren’t stuffed like the rest of it.

Still undecided over the face and the tail.

coasters plus circle

I’ve made more “coasters” and intentionally took them from the side so you can’t see the letter on top.

I have to make at least one more, but all of these, except the bottom one, are all going out to different people in the club I’m involved in.

By the way, I had a hard time making the letter M. Hopefully, the one it goes out to isn’t terribly bothered by the fact it’s horrible looking. I tried crocheting the letter at least five times and each time, it looked less horrible. The one I’m sending is the first one after I made a decent looking one that didn’t fit the circle.

plum and bowl

I crocheted a little bowl using leftovers bits of yarn so it’s striped purple and blue.

The “plum” on top was also made using leftover yarn. I added the two leaves because it looked weird by itself.

knitted walls

After going through quite a few knitting books and magazines, I got it in my mind that I wanted to knit a little house.

The pieces on the right, which still need to be blocked, are the walls.

The one on the left was just leftover but I could try incorporating it into the rest of the house.

I haven’t decided if I want to make the roof a dark red or a greyish blue, although every person I’ve asked (Okay, the only person I’ve asked) suggested the dark red.

Also, have not officially decided if the roof should be crocheted or garter stitch.

Once I have the yarn in my hands, I’ll know.

new knitting project

Over the weekend, I cast on 129/130 (lost count after 120) stitches but got to row 10 and have no idea how I added stitches but made it worse. After getting to row 13, frogged the whole thing.

After I took it off the needles, I found it was too wide so it was a mixed blessing.

This yarn has been sitting there for a while and I wound it all onto balls. In total, nine, because of tangled yarn at the end.

I am still in the planning stages but I’m making myself another cardigan.

I’ve just cast on ten but the first row cast on will be 100.
