This month is almost over and I am close to accomplishing my goal for the month which was to make 10 freshstitches amigurumi from patterns I haven't made before. I finished 3 and had 7 more to go.Yesterday I finished 4 more and now I only need to finish 3 by Sunday. Below are in progress pics of two of them I started last week.
I've also been working on my craft room! I think I finally got the furniture how I want it. I still have plenty to do but here is an update.
Here is a view from the doorway. I kept my yarn organization the same. I need to get more bins and am thinking of some wall decor ideas so the walls won't look so plain.
Here is the wall next to the door with all my jetmax cubes. And there is plenty of floor space for blocking my knitted shawls.
Which brings me to talking about my first time blocking. I finally got all my blocking supplies and made my first attempt yesterday. I think it went well and the blocking wires really did help speed up the process. I ended up getting the mats at Walmart for $20 and they are way bigger than the ones I had originally planned to get from Knitpicks. I am currently blocking my mom's shawl I finished a while back. Its hard to see since its an off white and I placed it over a towel so it wouldn't get dirty against the grey mats.
I also finally found some time to work on my entrelac baby blanket on Saturday and finished up three more rows. I think I'm almost half way done.
Lastly I am going to participate in the freshstitches scrap a long. I have chosen to make the squid pattern with my scraps.
I had plenty more scraps to choose from but I narrowed it down to these which are all pinks and purples and I think they will go nicely together.
I made a magic ball by joining all the scraps together and I love how it looks. I'm going to wait to start my squid until next week so I should have some in progress pictures to share next Wednesday.
