Hey! I'm back! I still haven't found my camera, but Scott dug out his old one which, luckily, still works! ^_^
So, here's what I've been working on ...
The cotton rope granny square rug - it's finished! Yay!
I ended up using over 200 meters of rope ... and I
probably could have brought a rug for about the same price and less effort. *But* I love how it turned out and I enjoyed making it, so I think that's worth the cost ^_^
I finished this cute little cross-stitch - I'm going to give this to Scott's grandma for Mothers' Day. I'm glad it's finally finished!
I've also been making granny squares ... so far I've made 54 squares towards the Death Star blanket! Only 418 to go ... >_<
Nikita was happy to model for me ... photos of granny squares can be lovely, but when they're this monochrome, it's a little boring. She livens it up a bit! ^_^
I haven't done much on this granny ripple rug so far, but it's getting there! I really like the colours ^_^
I'm still not sure if I'm doing the edges right; I'm following the pattern but they look like they're increasing still. I might do a swatch in some scrap wool to practice a bit more.
I've also been making a cover for my little ottoman. I need to buy more wool though (what a pity!) as I have already used up the two balls of wool I had in those colours.
Still, it looks pretty, doesn't it? ^_^
That's all for the crafting today *but* I will say - go and watch the Hunger Games! It was *such* a great movie; relatively true to the books, great casting choices, and amazing set design. (Yes, set design is important to me ~_^)
I hope you had a fantastic day today! Tell me, are you working on anything at the moment? I'd love to know! ^_^
