I'm quite excited about FO Friday today. For I have two things to share, and one of them *gasp* is from WIP Wednesday last week!
Yes, I've finally put a face on my amigurumi tiger and he's ready to meet the world.
|Isn't he cute?|
The other thing I finished this week was a new project, started and finished on the same day (last Friday, in fact, but waaay to late to be included in last week's FO Friday post). I mentioned on Wednesday we have a few babies arriving over the next six months or so; I started my gift-making with an experiment in baby hats:
This is the Popcorn Crown hat by Paula Dean Nevison. It's that yellow Top Value DK again, until I buy any more baby-things yarn everything I make will be this colour! Using a 6mm hook, my hat has come out with a circumference of 14 inches, which according to this chart makes it suitable for a newborn. But as I have no experience with babies and their heads, I have no idea if this is accurate or not. Does anyone have any idea? If it is possibly too small, then I will follow kelbeldesign's advice and add two more dcs to the starting round and making it longer. I also really like the effect she gets with using two colours (see her other project here).
I feel I ought to apologise to my non-knitting/crochet readers. A lot of the links here are Ravelry-based, so you'd need to be a member of the site to see them. I presume everyone who's found their way here from Tami's blog is on Ravelry already, though.
I also promise to blog more about the other stuff, not just my crochet! I'll make a real effort to start on the other photography challenges soon, and I'm in the middle of a huge Games Workshop audit in the house to find out how many miniatures we have that need painting, so expect a large Warhammer related post in the next week or so too.
Have a good weekend, and don't forget to head over to Tami's Blog to check out the other FOs posted today.
