The Games have begun!

So I didn’t manage to finish the set of Lovecraft critters before the Olympics like I hoped… But I’m going to finish it, I promise! It’s just on hold right now while the Ravellenics are happening, I’ll pick it up as soon as the games are over in a couple of weeks 🙂

Anyway, I had planned to make a prep post before the games began yesterday, presenting the projects I’ll be working on, but ran out of time. Plus, some of the projects I want to finish are in storage, so I need to go down to the basement and get them, which is … bleh. Don’t like going down there 😛

Yesterday I continued knitting on a bag I started in 2011, from a free pattern called Deep Sea Flower Dice Bag. The bottom was done and two or three rounds of the sides, so the hard work of the seed stitch bottom and then picking up stitches around it was done 🙂

But I’m using a thinner yarn than the pattern recommends, and many more stitches, so it’s still going to take a while to finish… I only managed to knit about a centimeter yesterday, so I think I have to work on this thing throughout the games, and hopefully, after knitting maybe five or ten rounds every day, it will be finished before the closing ceremony 🙂

In the meantime, I’ve started working on this thing again:

Punk bear 😀

This is a pattern from Elizabeth Doherty’s book Amigurumi! Super Happy Crochet Cute and the pattern is called Strawbeary. It’s a really sweet little bear, but I decided to punk her up a bit 😀 Only have the rest of the skirt and the legs left, so hopefully she’ll be done soon 🙂

Well, I’ll update again once I’ve actually finished something 😛
