Welcome to the March edition of Gifted Gorgeousness! I know I'm a little late, but that gives me the opportunity so show you some new stuff. As usual, I have a few gift projects going on. The one you already know is The Mermaid - I've been working on her every day, but it's still slow, slow going. I'm really not so sure anymore I can finish her before July, but I'm sure Dad will understand. After finshing the hair, I finally started on the rock, and that's going a little quicker, I can often do 20-50 stitches without changing colour or jumping around too much!
Earlier this month (or possibly still in February?) I had a new crochet start - there are still a few more babies to be born that I need to make gifts for! This is going to be a cute, cuddly crocodile; I already finished the head and most of the body, so I'm missing arms, legs, and the tail. I have a whole book of these and want to make two more; a hippo and a panda, soon.
Then just this week, I had yet another start...I wanted to wait until the baby gifts are made, but as it's a very, VERY late birthday/christmas gift for a friend, I couldn't wait any longer. This is going to be another Ambarussa loop scarf, the same I made for Felix last year, only in blue. I'm learning something new for this, a chain-less double crochet foundation row, so it'll be a little bit more stretchy when done! It's slow going for now, but I think it's working well.
And last but not least, it was my birthday yesterday, and I actually got some crafty gifts! The fantasy amigurumi book was from my coworkers and has some really cool creatures in it - I think the dinocorn (dinosaur-unicorn) is my favourite. And the kit is for the 'Spirit of the Volcano' scarf/wrap by LillaBjörn. I'm having a hard time not starting it right away, but the goal right now is to not touch it until I finished Ambarussa, Halata and the Half Granny.
