Friday FOs - 23.02.2018

Another week has gone by and more finished objects to show you. Here are all the items I have finished this week.

Tiny Owl #3 for 2018
Tiny Owl #4 for 2018
Two tiny owls finished. I'm trying to make a few of thes in various colour combinations because I dan't have a lot of things that I can sell cheaply. I have have kids come up and ask what I had available for around $5 and these will fit the bill nicely.

Comfort Bear #8 for 2018
I am still managing to make one of these each week.

That's all my finished objects for this week. I hope to have a bit of time to take photos and post some progress shots next week. It all depends on whether a friend of mine gets his drivers licence on Monday as I have been spending time sitting next to him while he drives around.

Until next time, have a good one.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 16.02.2018

I have been a little more productive this week but still didn't have anything to show on Wednesday. I have finished another bear so you get to see that at least, and here it is.

Comfort Bear #7 for 2018
You can get some very interesting effects when using varegated yarn. This bear has a very interesting "Adam Ant" thing going on in the face that I didn't notice until I saw the photo in miniature.

That's it from me for this week. If I manage to get the time to take photos and post them on Wednesday then you will get to what else I have been working on.

Friday FOs - 09.02.2018

I have been struggling to get anything done this week. While I did make some progress on my Tunisian Spiral blanket but not enough to warrent a post and I have finished a bear, and here it is.

Comfort Bear #6 for 2018
That's  all I have for you this week. Hopefully next week will be more productive.

Until next time, have a good one.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 02.02.2018

I managed to get photos of all my finished objects this week. I wasn't sure how I was going to do it but I have succeeded. So, without further ado, here they are.

Beanie
Mine was the only suitable head to display this on and my sister obliged in taking the photo. I wasn't really expecting to get this one finished so quickly as I'm usually quite a slow knitter.

Appliques
16 appliques all completed. I haven't sewn in any of the ends but I think the lady I have made these for can take care of them when she sews then on to the table covers that they have been made for so I am calling them finished.

Comfort Bear #5 for 2018
Another comfort bear finished and ready for service.

That's it from me for this week. I will be back home soon and everything will return to normal (whatever normal is).

Until next time, have a good one.

Wednesday WIPs - 31.01.2018

I have managed to get photos of everything that I have worked on this week and now it's time to show you the WIPs, and here they are.

Rose Corner to Corner Pixel Square
I past the half way point with this one and will soon be able to untangle all the different strands of yarn that have accumulated.

Tiny Owls
I went and bought some more yarn on Monday, just because I get a discount on my birthday, and started making more owls. I figure I would start with the smallest and work my way up.

That's all the WIPs for this week. Everything else that I have worked on this week is now finished. I can't promise that I will be able to post my finishes on Friday but I will try.

Until next time, have a good one.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 26.01.2018

Well, I not only finished this week's bear I managed to get a photo, and here it is.

Comfort Bear #4 for 2018
That's it for this week. I may be back on Monday to give a bit of a monthly wrap up or you may not hear from until I get back from my holiday, you just have to wait and see.

Until next time, have a good one.

Richard.

Wednesday WIPs - 24.01.2018

It's time to show everyone what I have been working on this week. Here are my WIPs.

Appliques
Finished another Angel this week. One more and the set will be complete.

Knitted Beanie
I have started shaping the top on this one. I have about 8 more rows to go.

Comfort Bear
I wouldn't normally incude this one in my WIPs but I don't know if I will be able to finish it as I will be travelling tomorrow and I don't know what time I will have on Friday. I'm also not sure if I will be able to post on Friday even if I do get this finished.

That's all I have for today. Until next time, have a good one.

Richard.
