FO Friday - Getting Stuff Done

This week I've been trying to catch up on some crocheting that I have sadly been neglecting.

Firstly is a pretty random request that I received on a night out - my friend asking was just a tad tipsy!  She asked me if I could make 'aaaanything' and so I hesitantly enquired what she had in mind and was met with -  a bunny disguised as a zebra with one ear up and one ear down.  Random, I know!  After checking that she still wanted it the next day, I set out making it.  I only wanted to make a simple shape so the stripes would be more effective so here is my finished bunny-disguised-as-a-zebra.

Next is the pattern I was testing for Lucy In The Sky - 'Granny Chic 'Granny Stripe' Wrist Warmers'.  Sadly, I didn't make it quickly enough to give feedback about it - I was kicking myself for that!  So I let it hibernate for a bit but I've been crocheting it madly for the last couple of days as the temperatures have dropped again and I am rather chilly.  The pattern is really easy to follow and I think they look great and fit really well too.  The hardest part for me was choosing the colours.  I decided to make it symmetrical from the centre and I chose 2 colours that worked with the main colour and 2 that clashed with it.

I also want to say "Hi!" to my Best Friend who is off work ill at the moment - I hope you feel a bit better today.

He's in the middle of buying his own place so I'm planning to make a housewarming present.  I'm going to need to start making it soon as I don't know when he's likely to move.

And, finally, because I saw this idea on Kittens With Mittens and it looked like a good way to keep track of projects:

FO’s 2012 =  18 + 2 =20
WIP’s =  6
Queued = 8 

That wasn't as many as I thought it would be actually so I'm quite pleased!


  1. I love your wrist warmers, they are funky! Not as funky as the bunny, disguised as a Zebra with one ear up and one ear down! Ingenious little creation and you are a fabulous friend for making it for your squiffy mate :) x

  2. Great to see you adopt the list, I find it gives me a reality check on just how much I have accomplished! I am also tracking how much stash enhancement vs stash usage... :0P
