I've jumped on board - as this will motivate me to get working on some WIP that are sitting around and not progressing.
The One a Day project I'm working on is my African Hexagon Flowers. Apologies for the retro tablecloth - that detracts (or maybe distracts?) a bit from the flowers!
They've been sitting in my work basket for a couple of months now. I'd done 17 hexagons and I need (I think) around 46. My plan is to turn them into a pillow for our lounge room couch. I followed this tutorial for the hexagons, but instead used a size 4 hook.
No success as yet on finding a pillow pattern or instructions, though I've found some lovely photos on flickr of rectangular, square and hexagon shaped pillows that will be a good reference.
Progress - 19 hexagons done, 27 to go.
My other WIP - the knitted shrug (mini cardigan) for my daughter - is now progressing well. If you recall - I had completed around 2/3rds of it - and lost it...somewhere. Over the weekend I had a conference I had to attend - where I had to sit and listen to a lot of speakers. A perfect opportunity to do some knitting. I got a few strange and admiring looks - it was NOT the sort of place one normally does knitting. But, it means I'm now a third of the way through...good progress.
Have you ever done your craft in some strange places? It's a first for me.
OK. I'm off now to check out and see what some of my favourite bloggers are up to before bed time. Cheerio.
