Picture-less post!

I figured my last couple of posts have been picture-heavy, so this is a picture-free post.
don't think I'm just too lazy to take pictures... ;]

I finished the first sock! I cast on for the second sock immediately, but I'm afraid I've lost interest. I believe they call this Second Sock Syndrome... But I vow, right in this post that I will be done with the second sock in a week, September 14, 2008

And guess what? I won a pincushion from Jane over at Crafty Conundrum! eek! I cannot believe it! so excited, can't wait for it to arrive in the mail! :] Thanks Jane!

I have decided to drop the idea of the folk bag. I decided I didn't have the patience (It is a big project), it was getting all tangled, and whatnot, so I unraveled it (that's the beauty of knitting and crochet, you can always just unravel it.) I am using the unraveled yarn to make a swatch scarf, which is turning out nicely. I have already used a cable and the "basketweave" stitch in it.

I have also decided to try and make a crocheted hat using the same basic idea as that of amigurumi, which is crocheting in spirals using single crochet.

The only problem is that I only have 1 crochet hook, and I also want to make the hippo I mentioned in my last post. So which to make first? I'll leave that up to you guys please vote in the poll below! :]

Which First?

Crochet Hat

  1. Couldn't you just switch the hook between the works? I can't see how having only one hook prevents you from doing several crochetings at the same time O.o

  2. I vote hippo! ;) But I can't wait to see both!! :)

  3. Can't you just go out and buy another crochet hook? That would be the easiest thing, I think!!!

  4. Thanks so much for your nice comments on my blog! I totally vote for the hippo too ;)

  5. I have a scarf I have been knitting on (off and on) forever! LOL

    I finally finished my first amigurumi this happy! I posted a couple pics of him ☺

  6. The swatch scarf sounds cool - I love knitting in basket weave pattern!

  7. Hey yeah, what amoena said; if you pull the last stitch you want to leave out a bit you'll get a big loop. Then you can put it aside and start something new (unless of course you want to use the same ball of yarn... but even then you could snip it and just pick up later with new yarn) But, if you have to pick, I pick hippo!


I'd love to hear what you think. :)
