7 days – 7 things

This is an idea I nicked from a friends blog, look here for the german blog. It is about making all those creativ things you do in a week stand up proud for all to see, may it big or small.

So hopefully there now will be a regual installment about my crafts over the last 7 days.

I always was very creativ and crafted all the time. Even in Kindergarten I much more prefered to paint and draw then to play outdoors or listen to books being read.
Later I took up cooking, baking, crafting stars from straw and paper (yes my mom has lot’s of decorations for christmas), and now I’m deep into knitting, crochet and spinning.

So here the first overview over the last 7 days.

I finshed the little doll of the 11th Doctor. I started this last august for a friend. But a mix of no-motivation-what-so-ever, some bad news about my other dolls, and just uhhh-shiny-distraction made him a UFO for a long time.

The next FO! Socks this time. These “only” took about 2 month. Yes not my favourite project either to work. Not even sure why, there were neither complicated to knit nor too boring, and even for me. But they fit and look pretty much like I wanted them to look, always a good thing with designing.

I sketched, charted the main part and swatched a new design for a shawl. To early to post a picture of the design, but looks like there will be a Doctor Strange shawl in my comic book collection.
The picture is of all the comic book characters I have pattern ideas so far, from the already published once to just sketches.
The socks from above are the first point in “generic”.

This year I started my gardening slightly earlier then last year. Hopeful the seeds will grow.
I use egg shells as planters; easy to use, free and they come with their own holding facility.

 

 

 

Brioche

 

 

Thanks to a rather funny thread on Ravelry about brioche, I made lots of that this week. Well the bread kind, I can’t stand the knit stitch! The latest version has Nutella-filling.

After finishing some longterm WIPs I started clue 2 of Follow Your Arrow 2. My coinflip choose version A. I use a lace weight in a just gorgeous green and guess the shawl will end up more like a shawlette.

And last but not least, I finished this blouse. Sewing on buttons is not my favourite part of any craft, I just can’t be trusted to be around sharp needles I’m way to accident prone.

 

 

So until next week with some more and some already seen crafty things.
