And more Amis...


A Princess for Nan (went a bit overboard with the embroidery there), a Grim Reaper for Dad, and another alien for K. One more alien to complete the family and then I'm completely out of requests...it feels a bit strange, because I don't have a big ongoing project happening at the moment either, and nothing really on a time limit.

I'm seriously thinking of starting Beth's Little Star Afghan for K - she really liked the pattern, it looks fun and quick, and I cocked up a bit back and bought a relatively enormous amount of 4-ply when I meant to buy DK yarn. It would be green stripes, but I think it might look quite nice. K is very into "just having a little rest" at the moment so perhaps this would be an appropriate project to start. I really want to make her a dress - I have great fabric for it, but need 4-ply cotton to crochet the tunic top and I can't afford new yarn right now. I'm saving every penny I have towards the yarn to make a ballet cardigan for her. She's growing rapidly at the moment so everything has to be done a size bigger just in case.

With the end of the current amigurumi list of requests, my thoughts are starting to turn to cross stitch again, if only because I have a lot to finish and no money to spend on new projects. This was supposed to be the year of finishing UFOs and I've done almost nothing to further that end. Still...yesterday K and I went to visit the preschool she'll probably be starting in September. It hurts my heart even to think of it, but a small part of me is suggesting that the 2x2hr sessions per week might be a good time to get her Alphabet Afghan out again and finish it in time for her birthday...

Hehehe, they are cool aren't they. Great little stocking fillers too... :whistling: I'm planning a witch and a new graduate for when I finish the star blanket...
