I spent most of the past week working on an unexpected project that I had to finish by Monday. It took me five days of four or more hours basically each night, and a sore wrist and elbow, but I finished, and now have a lap blanket that I'll share on FO Friday. :) However, this meant not much in the way of other WIP. That said, I'm almost finished with one of last week's, and I started another that I mentioned two weeks ago, and expect to have both done in the next couple of days. I also put the Man-of-War in for pattern testing, finished the Cowl testing, and published my John Bear amigurumi pattern.
Sooper Sekrit Project
Closer to being done now - had hoped to finish on Tuesday night but I just got too tired.
Kinda looks like a fish, don't it? But it's not...hopefully, have it finished on Thursday.
Shortstop for the Oceans
On Monday, I started work on the short stop for the Oceans. I think, given how it looks so far, it's certainly futile to try to keep it a surprise...but now that I've looked at the photos, maybe it's not quite so obvious after all, so I'll leave it as a surprise of sorts for now...
Should have this one done by Friday too, cause it's a perfect commute piece (one ball, one color, one hook, some fiberfill, and no sewing needed), and I have about 4 - 5 hours of commute today.
...and that's all for this week. But then there is the planning. Oh, the planning. :) This includes my intention of yarnbombing...something...using scrap from the past couple months, a plan to make a birthday gift for my grandfather's 93rd birthday (coming up in early April) and maybe something for my dad's 70th (in mid April), a new set of clothing for the male body that I've designed as a doll base (but the clothes I'm thinking of could require that I learn to felt), continued planning for the Ocean's third baseman, still waiting for the materials for the shawl I started last week, considering interesting ways to crochet a pair of wrist cuffs in green...or possible a flower pot cozy, and contemplating what a cute alien equivalent of a cat would look like (keeping in mind the specific adaptations that would have been necessary on the planet where it came from). It seems weird that in a week where I spent this many hours crocheting would have this little to show... :)
