Finally Finished :)

Tunisian Crochet on Craftsy

It is done :)
I have completed my multi-garment project for my Craftsy Course - Tunisian Crochet and have now officially completed the course!

Drops Baby Merino

I love it - it was so much fun to make and the colour combination turned out wonderfully too!

I would warmly recommend this course to any of you wanting to delve into the world of Tunisian Crochet.

Not only did I learn these amazing techniques, but I learnt how to use Colour palettes to enhance my projects colour combinations, and last but not least how to make twisted cord using a kitchen appliance ;)



What have you completed this week?


stash drawer

Last year, because I took part in the stash challenge, I managed to focus on the projects that had yarn already stashed for them.

Above you can see my other stash drawer (if you recall last year I managed to empty the first one of its contents - if you missed it you can still read about it HERE) As with most of my stash, it has all been bought with projects in mind.

This year I have been browsing - a little too much - and have managed to choose a selection of awesome projects, but projects nonetheless.
As such I put down hubby's pullover that I started at the end of last year in favour of smaller, easier projects, which ended up becoming bigger and more time intensive projects as time went by :O


As I mentioned on Wednesday, I have created a to-do list for the rest of this year and plan to get through as many of the projects as I can.

List of projects that are in my queue:

  1. Hat for Jas
  2. Crochet shorts 
  3. Another Hat for Jas
  4. Another Slouch for Kay
  5. Julianna for me
  6. Isis Wrap for me
  7. Winter socks for Jas
  8. Winter socks for Kay
  9. 2 Pairs of socks for Kay
  10. 2 Pairs of socks for Jas
  11. 4 Pairs of socks for hubby
  12. Hubby's Pullover
  13. 2 pairs of socks for me
  14. Rebel Lace Cardi
  15. Wristlets for me
  16. Wristlets for hubby


There even is another Craftsy course in there which I can't wait to start, but have forced myself to hold back on the materials I need for a little while at least, so that I can give the other projects a chance!

You may agree that it is quite a whack of projects, but I don't mind if they pour over into next year, as long as I get some of them completed along the way. If I can empty the drawer of its lovely woolly hoard along the way that will be a great bonus :) 

Do you have some stashed projects to complete?

A lovely smell of lunch almost done is wafting my way - I will tell you more about that tomorrow......
And with that I wish you all a lovely weekend.
