Middle of the month means time for still-my-favourite SAL (if only because I have so much to show for it all the time!), Gifted Gorgeousness hosted by the lovely Jo. This month, it's all about crochet for me, because I'm pretty much up to date with showing my stitching and knitting gifts! So that means I have two projects to show, one that is a gift, and one that's made from gifted yarn.
First up is my newest baby gift - this is Fibi Fox, as designed by lalylala on Etsy. She was a lot more work than my usual ragdolls, but I think she was work it - isn't she just so cute?! She's a gift for Felix new great cousin/cousin once removed/family member, whom I hope to meet this coming week!
The other one is, of course, my Ubuntu blanket. Last time I had finished the full diamonds, six of them, so now it was time to start working on six half diamonds. There are a lot more colourful, and especially the first couple rows have a LOT of colour changes, so to avoid being stuck with weaving in loose ends all the time, I decided to finish one half diamond (which covers parts 4-6 of the CAL) before moving on to the next one. I had a LOT of frogging to do and it feels like I made that first half diamond twice, but I'm confident the future ones will go more smoothly now that I have a model and know what I am doing! So I fell short of my goal of two half diamonds this month, and finished about one and a half.
