Crochet update

In this post last year, I talked about my local yarn store's work-in-progress event. Where you basically dig through your stash of unfinished projects, register them, and have a deadline to get them finished. It's a great way to clear out the craft room, get stuff off the needles, and rediscover those projects that looked like such a good idea way back when. It's also an opportunity to throw a few more things into the queue and have a defined time to get them done. So far I have registered:

  • A knit cabled cape for my mom
  • A knitted winter hat for J
  • A crocheted fish for S
  • A knitted dress for S (more on that in a bit)
  • Another knitted dress for S (this one for the summer)
  • A pair of gloves for me
  • A crocheted sweater that I've ripped back more than once (it's a tricky pattern)
  • A baby sweater that has been on needles for 4 years
  • A baby sweater for a friend who had a baby in November
I've also started a few projects I need to register:

  • The beautiful cowl I talked about a few days ago
  • A Valentine's Day sweater for S for next year
  • A cupcake hat for my niece's birthday
Now, the crocheted fish for S is part of a pair, described as a daddy and little fish in my amigurumi crochet book. I made the Daddy Lish (that's what we call fish around here) sometime last year. Baby Lish was sitting on the hook for while yet, until the other night:

They turned out so, adorably, cute. I love them, and S does too. She throws them around the living room.
More to come...
