It is still hard to show the length of this scarf but here is a photo of the 15 rows I completed yesterday. I am displaying the back side of the scarf this time. I finished the black and started to green band.
I found this pattern of an Apple Trivet and was transported right back to my childhood and memories of my mother. As young girls my sister and I were taught to make these as sachets for a persons undies drawers. Of course mom never made the leaves just the pineapple part. She would then take some cotton stuffing and sprinkle some sachet on it and stuff the center with it then weave the ribbon through it and tie a bow. Some how or other we never had the pattern and forgot how to make them and about them as we grew older. When I spotted this pattern I was on it like syrup on hotcakes. I started one yesterday.
Last but not least, last week I started to make this little doll called My Pal Patches. He just caught my eye. He is from the Crochet World Magazine published in June 2010. He can be found starting on page 32. So far he is adorable and an easy Amigurumi project. He is a bit larger than I first thought. Anyway, I have started his shirt.
So, although I did not complete anything I did make progress and started some new things that will go a bit more quickly to completion. I can't just have two projects going on at a time.
Here is my WIP list as of now...
My Pal Patches
Faux Dr. Who Scarf
Charted Elephant Afghan
