Promises, promises…

I know I said that I wouldn’t post much this week, because of my exams and stuff, but I’ve never been good at keeping such promises. The kind about me not doing whatever I want to when I don’t really have the time. If anyone out there has some willpower and a little impulse control to spare, I’d be happy to pay for some :p
Oh, well, enough with the complaining 🙂 When I got tired of reading last night, I started making lots of tiny crocheted things. Mainly it was for trying out some patterns and shapes from my new crochet book, but then I thought I could make something out of the shapes.

This thing is not really very Christmasy, but I thought I’d show it anyway. I like the shape, it looks like a fossil Ammonite (not the Biblical tribe!), an ancestor of the squid and octopus (and actually not as closely related to the modern Nautilus as you would think). I’m a sucker for anything prehistoric 🙂 I’m thinking about making more of these, possibly in different sizes, and sew them on a bag or something. I like making bags, but most of them come out pretty much the same. I need some diversity.
Anyway, the blog will be my Advent calendar this year 🙂 This is actually the first year ever that I don’t have a calendar with candy or little things in it, and it’s kind of sad, but we can’t afford it.. So I will have to cheer myself up with updating my blog with little things that I make every day 🙂 Well, maybe not every day until Christmas, but I’ll try 🙂

  1. Yes, I started with single crochet and ended with triple crochet 🙂 Don't remember how many of each the stitches, but you can find the pattern in “The Crochet Stitch Bible” by Betty Barnden. Oh, and it's all crocheted in the back loops 🙂
