Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

April already????

You know, it’s fairly bad when the first time you realise it’s April is when you get the next part of a SAL in your inbox. Especially when you haven’t finished January’s part! Oops! Better get stitching, I guess. Such a hardship, but I suppose someone has to do it.

So, I started to carry on January’s block, and miscounted. Damn that blasted frog! Although, this is really the first time I’ve needed to frog anything that I can think of so *shrugs* I suppose everyone gets it from time to time…

I’ve already frogged the little house, and just need to do the dwarf on the left and the washing line pole, when I feel like it. And then remember that there still are some elements out of line and to not count from them! I may still go back and frog them as well, but I want to do the whole square to see if they seem out of line (yeah, I know, I’m lazy!)

Digital StillCameraAfter ding that little bit, I decided I wanted to cross stitch rather than frog, so I got out Pokemon again, and put in a few stitches around the bottom left creature, as I wanted to move onto the fish which is below that! So quite a bit done on this this week too, which is good

Digital StillCameraand they are very comfy to wear, which is always nice πŸ™‚ One of my friends commented that they don’t match, to which I replied that I don’t have any matching pairs of socks! I like it πŸ™‚

I also started another pair, and very quickly rolled out the first one

Digital StillCameraThis yarn was actually a bit of an accident- I meant to order the red version of it, but accidentally ordered the green! I really don’t mind though, because the patterning is really cool πŸ™‚

So what crafting things have you all been up to?
