Crochet Hook Holder

I got myself a new set of hooks, one can never have too many hooks! Especially nice cushioned ones. Obviously I had to make a new holder for these new hooks as well, and this time I chose green.

Just a quick and easy project, but oh so useful!

Love and chocolate for all!

Rainbow Arms

I finished my fingerless gloves to match my rainbow scale scarf.

I absolutely love this yarn, I still have a few balls of it left so am thinking about what kind of rainbowy goodness to make next!

Niffler All Done

Took about a month to finish this little guy, but he’s finally done! He’s just a prototype, but I’m quite happy with the result.

I’ll write out the pattern soon and then work one with the actual yarn intended for Niffler, which is a fuzzy towelling yarn to make him cuddlier.

He’ll hopefully become my first new pattern in a looooong time!

Niffler Jazz Hands!

It’s a work in progress, I just tucked his paws in his pouch to store them while I finish his legs. When I looked over it just made me chuckle.

Well, that’s more like it…

Rocket has arms! Two of them!

Now on to the tail. I hope I can make him stand up and balance with his tail, but as he’s getting quite heavy, I’m not super hopeful. We shall see!

I need an arm. Honestly, I really need it!

I’ve finally managed to work some more on perhaps my largest project to date, the wonderful Rocket! He has both legs and one arm now.

He’s coming along so well. I completely removed both his arms and did them all over again because his feet and legs turned out so much better than the first version of his arms and I needed them to match.
I think this is one of the most important things when working on a new freehand work, you have to be willing to completely unravel and start over again.

I’m hopeful I’ll be able to finish the second arm and start on his jumpsuit before Halloween!

Cheers,

Rock It

I’ve finally been working on this project again! I’m not sure if I like his facial expression, but at least he’s got a face now. Here’s hoping I can actually finish the project before NineWorlds starts!

New project!

So, I just started a new project. It all started with just picking the right colours and ordering the yarn.
And then it descended all into chaos!

This is what it looks like when I work on a new pattern!

Dragon Scale Mittens

Over the weekend I finally finished my dragon scale cloak! Pictures will follow eventually, it’s a huge beast and hard to photograph.
However, I also finished these beauties:

I used the same yarn that I used for the cloak (Bernat Mosaic in Envy, unfortunately discontinued) and may release patterns for both eventually. Definitely planning to, but that cloak is such a huge project!

Getting back to creating crochet items feels really good though. I hope to make more time for it next year!
