Experiments in Crochet

I have one week of holidays left. I wish it was more, but I start work a week before the kids go back to school, so hopefully that means I’ll be ready when classes start. I’ve been getting a lot done. The new book shelves are complete and installed and have made my home tidier than it has been in a long time.

I received my Noro Kureyon sock yarn last week, but have managed to resist the temptation to cast on another sock, and the beaded rib socks are progressing well, with the heel of the second sock imminent.

I went to Rubi & Lana knitting group on Saturday, which was at Sally’s house. It was a lovely day, and I knit more of the beaded rib sock while entertaining Inigo, Lara’s six week old bub.

My favourite fairy turned two on Sunday. The book I ordered for her failed to arrive in time. Hopefully it will be in today’s mail.

And I attempted my first amigurumi crochet – a turtle from one of the books in the previous post. The first try was on too large a hook, so I tried a smaller hook and I’m quite happy with the result. And I thought I could only do simple crochet chains so I surprised myself. I’m still waiting on an amigurumi book that has been translated to English – it’s in the post along with Charlotte’s book. I was too impatient to wait.

And the Flannel Flower bag picture have been added to the finished items album in the left sidebar, as well as to my projects in Ravelry.
