Watcha doin' ? Wednesday

Well its been a busy couple of days and although I have two very almost finished projects to show, they are not quite ready as I need to finish stitching them up.  And well we all know that would be the boring part right? 

So I went ahead and had a practice run of some little flower motifs as I am planning to join Kashi for a Japanese Flower Scarf CAL. Here are my samples so far.....I am not sure whether to go with this or not. The scarf is meant to at least colour match a hat I made for my daughter last xmas but this yarn is better suited to knitting I think. It was extremely lovely to knit with but is looking a bit iffy with crochet to me.....what do you think? 

Can you see the bits where it catches and pulls? I can! And it is bothering me as such things do. Maybe I should try using a bigger hook, this one is made with a 3.5mm . The yarn is 5 ply Merino. 

My plan was to make it all in the one colour but I am not so sure now. Hmmm

My 2nd daughter arrived yesterday and last night found us all huddled inside around the fireplace as it was blowing a gale outside, raining and cold. Today was not much better. We consoled ourselves by choosing a coat pattern and ordering some yarn from Bendigo woollen Mills. I get to have fun with the yarn and my girl gets the coat.  :-) 

Later in the day I got a nice surprise when my brother and sister in law popped by with a little gift....

I already had some of the green Beetle yarn myself so now I do believe I will have enough for a bigger project. There is also some lovely baby wool in 4 ply in the mix. How lovely! The urge to start several new projects is upon me! I am however, trying so hard to finish the ones I am already working on, really I am. hehe! 

Hugs and smoochies  xoxox



  1. I can't see where the yarn pulls and catches. I think it is really pretty. Lucky you to get that box full of yarn, too.

  2. The flower parches look perfect to me, they are really pretty.
    And that box of yarn looks great. I can't wait to see what you will make with the yarn.

    A belated happy birthday to you, Karisma :) Hope you had a lovely day.
