I'm finally feeling more human again. The month of February was unkind to my immune system. As a result I'm trying to catch up on cleaning and chores and have less time to play. But I've still been productive!
First off, I got the buttons for the newsboy hat. I had a good rummage through my stash and came up with this pair.
Then a lone skein of seafoam colored wool jumped into my cart while I was wandering around JoAnn Fabrics. After a Ravelry search, I found a free pattern by the same company that made the yarn. This one was a lot of fun to work up! So many neat textures! Also, the buttons I used on this hat were from my stash. They had been an option for the newsboy cap.
I'd been meaning to learn how to make the African flower hexagon motifs I've been seeing everywhere and finally got around to trying them. I used some leftover kitchen cotton and went to town. There are actually two motifs that are stacked and attached via single crochets around the edges. Made for a nice hotpad in the kitchen.
I've got a few WIPs happening right now. One is an amigurumi, which I've discovered is a workout for one's hands. I can only do so much on one of those figures before my hands need a rest. There's also a quartet of towels and a quick cowl.
Jellyfish amigurumi is a free Ravelry download.
Cowl is a free pattern online found via Ravelry.
Towels are my own pattern.
That's it for now. Hoping to finish up the cowl, do a few more rounds on the jellyfish, and maybe get going on these towels... all in between loads of laundry. See you next week!
