Friday FOs - 25.05.2018

After taking a photo of my finished objects last week I then forgot to post them so I have two weeks of finishes for you this week. This week I managed to finish 5 items thanks to time spent collecting for the Red Sheild Appeal. Here are all my finished objects for the last tow weeks.

Comfort Bear #20 for 2018
 Another sparky bear, this time the sparkles actually show up in the photo.

Beanie in Collingwood Colours

This is my third attempt at getting this beanie the right size.

That's last week's finished objects, now for this week's.

The first of three Plastic Bag Holders

These plastic bag holders may become obsolete in the next month or so as the big supermarkets phase out plastic bags but I figure I had sold a few and needed to replace them so I have.


Comfort Bear #21 for 2018
I have gone back to standard colour combinations for this week's comfort bear.

Dishcloth #2 side 1
Dishcloth #2 side 2
For the second dishcloth that I have made for Springdale Community Centre I have gone for a Crochetknit version which gives a double sided effect.

That's it for now, until next time, have a good one, and if you see someone collecting for charity, please give generously, especially if it's for the Salvation Army.

Friday FOs - 11.05.2018

I was hoping to use my week off teaching to finish a couple more items but I was needed to help with preparations for this year's Red Shield Appeal which is being launched tomorrow morning. I have managed to get one item finished this week and here it is.

Comfort Bear #19 for 2018
Another bear using sparkly yarn (which doesn't seem to show up in a photo). I'm still keeping up my average of 1 bear per week. It will be interesting to see if I can make all through the year.

That's it from me for this week. Until next time, have a good one.

I had oportunity to finish this one this week and took it. I don't know when I will get the oportunity to finish the last but I hope to have it done soon.

Wash Cloth
I was asked to make a few of these for one of the community centres that I go to to teach crochet so expect to see more in the not too distant future.

That's it from me for this week. I don't know that I will have this many items to show you next week but I will try. Until next time, have a good one.

Wednesday WIPs - 25.04.2018

I have a night off from my usual activities due to it being a public holiday ao I thought I would show a couple of the things that I have worked on this week.

Knitted Beanie in Collingwood Colours
The person I have been making these for has informed me that the first is too big so I've gone done a couple of sizes in needled and making this one a bit smaller. I haven't been able to give the second beanie to her yet so I don't know if it's going to be too big or not. I may have to make another ofter I finish this one.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
I had quite a bit of time in a  waiting room so I made good progress on this one. It's close to being big enough now, so when I get to the next corner I will be changing to black for the last time around.

That's all for now. I should be back on Friday with at least one FO. Until then, have a good one.

Friday FOs - 13.04.2018

I have had  a reasonably productive week this week and have finished several items. Here they are in the order that they were finished.

Comfort Bear #15 for 2018
Another comfort bear finished.

Beanie in Collingwood Colours
The second of two beanies is finished. I don't think the person that commissioned me to make these will be expecting this one so early but I like to finish those things that I have been paid for as soon as possible.

When I checked my ToDo list I found that Teapot Cosies were at the top of the list and I had previously had a request for Two Cup Teapot Cosies so I figured that I would start with those.

I have had four of these waiting to be finished for quite a while now so it's probably about time I did something with them.

That's all I have for this week. I hope to have more finished for next week. Until next time, have a good one.
