Do you want to see all my hard work? Here it is!
Um... Oh wait... I haven't actually made any hexagons whatsoever this week. FAIL! I really do feel like a terrible failure - not even one! Not even the middle circle of one. Nothing :-(
But... In my defence I have been really busy! I have a few finished projects now and repetative strain injury of my middle left hand finger (it's the yarn tension) so I'm in serious need of knitting/crochet rehab. No more til next Tues when I'm back from London.
Do you want to see CJ though? I love him, I don't really want to part from him.....!!
I love his vacant expression. He looks very confused! The funny thing about him is I spent ages making his front stripes stop half way across so he'd have a pink belly but then I put the pouch on and you can't even see!
See how he's a bit of a Danger monster and a bit not? The face is the same as Rebecca Dangers monsters and I used her pattern for the pouch but the patterns from Quilty's Corner which is a fab blog and looks to have some other very neat patterns I want to try!
I found a video demo for how to knit in the round with a circular needle instead of DPNs and I've made a start on a Daphne leg so we'll see if I manage this a little more successfully! ALittleBitSheepish also gave me a good tip for working in a small round in the comments bit of my last post which I'll try if circulars don't work either so thanks very much!
I also had a bit of a yarn de-stash but only a little one!
This is some of the leftover Drops Paris from my first granny stripe blanket. I may complain about it's splittyness but I really love the vibrant colours!
I decided to use this for a phone pouch for another friends birthday because I think it will be really durable and won't start to bobble like mine has!
I hope it's the right size, it's for an iPhone but I don't have one so I made a cardboard one which was so rubbish!
Ugh I need to pack now because I'm going to London tomorrow. I love going to London but I hate packing and always procrastinate until the last minute!
Take care all your knitty crochety bloggy people!
