I spent the weekend with a turbo charged needle, and then did almost nothing during the week!
First off- I am loving this way of rotating my projects- spend the weekend on one thing (technically 2 for me, as I want to have something to do when I finish the latest block in the OUAT sampler) and then the week on something else. The only downside is that I’m only working on two different things, so lots of my projects can feel slightly left out! But hey look, progress!
So, first off the OUAT sampler:
Yes, that is actually the August square finished! After just under a weekend of stitching!!!!! I’m seriously impressed by that 🙂 And that means that I’m going to spend the rest of the month on the Stained Glass SAL because I don’t want to get too far behind on that 🙂 I also said that I would give some more clues about the August block (you can find the first clues here and second here). So this time, I was going to talk about how the animals inherited their house where they ended up living.
On way to the place where they were going to live, they came upon a house full of robbers, and scared them off by standing on each others backs (as in the picture). Then, after they fell asleep the robbers decided to try and get their house back. So, as all people do when presented with an unknown and probably dangerous situation, they split up and sent one man back. When he reached the house, the cat scratched him, the dog bit him, the donkey kicked him and the rooster crowed. The man runs away and tells his friends that the house has been taken over by a witch (the cat), an giant with a club (the donkey), an ogre with a knife (the dog) and a judge (the rooster). So the robbers all leave, and the animals live happily together for the rest of their lives with the money the robbers had around the house.
After finished that square in record time, I then decided that I wanted to finish some other things, so I pulled out my KAL socks (technically a week project, but I’d had enough of stitching), and finished them off as well!
They’re really comfortable! I don’t know whether it’s the yarn or the pattern, but I’m probably going to knit these again 🙂
So that was my ultra-productive weekend!
And then it seemed that my mind had had enough of crafting, as I didn’t do anything till Thursday! (On Wednesday I got locked out my room which was really annoying, I didn’t even have anything to do 😦 )
So I only managed to finish off one more tetris shape for my mum (the red line)
This is going to end up the opposite of it’s partner, which I think it awesome 🙂 I’ve got a conference coming up in Cardiff at the beginning of September, so this sock will be able to be knitted on a train, just like it’s partner! 🙂 Such fun 🙂
