Crafty Tuesday: Finishing Projects

I’ve managed to finish a few different projects in the last week, and am working on two more now.

Finished:

The first thing I finished was the pair of slippers I was working on last week. They only took about half the time it took me to do the knitted slippers.

The next project I finished was a pair of fingerless mitts from Lion Brand Yarn’s website. I couldn’t find the right yarn for them when I went to Michael’s the last time, so I got one that was a similar weight. They turned out nice(and warm!) still. Of course, when I went to Joann’s after that trip to Michael’s, I did find the right yarn, but I used this one anyway.

And I also finished crocheting a dishcloth. that project only took about 2.5 hours. Could have been done even quicker, but I’m still figuring out crochet. But, it was a real easy pattern. half double crochet for about 24 rows.

In Progress:

I started one of the projects that came in the book with the crochet kit. I’d started it once before, but it requires holding two strands of yarn together as you work, and I thought I’d start with something simpler. It’s really not too difficult, but I wanted to have more practice before I worked on it. I’m about halfway finished with it so far. I have one side of the bag done. Have to do the other side and the gusset that will attach them.

I also started another bib. This is another by designer Elaine Fitzpatrick. I really do like her patterns. So far I have the main part of the bib done. I just need to do the neck/shoulder decreases and the ties.

Coming Up:

When I finish these two projects, I’m planning on starting another one that was in the crochet book, a scarf. I attempted it before as well, but didn’t quite understand the pattern stitch(mat stitch). I’m going to try to find some clearer directions on it before I start it again. I’m also planning on starting another cause hat, this one a flat top hat with brim base.
