I've been working on and off on a few things these past few weeks. I finished up the hat and scarf I was working on. I wasn't completely satisfied with it, but I suppose that's normal. I'm still learning to crochet, so I guess mistakes are bound to happen. I think I've gotten really good at magic loop. I get geeky giddy about starting a project with magic loop. The scarf was really simple- I think it took me an hour or two. I need to fix the buttons, but it's nice and warm.
I also did my first granny square. I probably should've picked something less complicated, but it was kind of fun. I look forward to having enough to make a blanket or something made with granny squares. There are so many interesting patterns out there. Practice makes perfect, right? Heh, I'm going to get a lot of practice! And I found a really good tutorial on blocking, which I never really understood before. Or at least, it seemed complicated. Of course, I'll have to improve my sewing skills. My sewing skills are totally lacking.
I started making doll clothes for Lilia's dolls. She likes them a lot, and has been asking me everyday to make more. I made this cute little outfit and hat for her doll (whose name keeps changing...) and now she's requesting shoes and gloves for her. It makes me laugh a little. It's a good thing I have a ton of yarn to burn through! I'm wondering if I can make doll furniture as well. I'll have to give that a try at some point. I've seen a few patterns, although I think they might be for barbie.
I also made a Slime amigurumi from Dragon Quest for the husband. It was a fun little first amigurumi, and I can't wait to make more. It was a little more complicated than I thought- mainly I didn't realize stuffing the little dude would be so hard. And like I've said, my sewing skills aren't that great, so creating a mouth and eyes were a little difficult. I did an okay job I suppose, but I'll have to keep at it until I get it better.
