Firstly, thank you to everyone who left get well messages on my last post, you really cheered me up *smiles*
Due to the aforementioned being not very well, there hasn't been a fantastic amount of crafting progress over the last few days. Luckily I made a bit more progress at the end of last week, so I at least have something to show today ;)
So, boyfriend's sock finally shows evidence of some much needed attention *laughs* It had been stuck halfway up the foot for what seemed like weeks, but now it has a heel and I begin the long slog up the leg ;)
My sock is missing from this picture, but you'll see it again on Friday *grins* I haven't started the second one yet, dangerously risking second sock syndrome, so that I can focus on finally finishing boyfriend's pair.
The blue and orange blob is the start of my crobot, but I am not convinced by the pattern - this is half of the head but it already seems too deep (I may be mixing up American and English crochet terms, so fixing this needs more concentration than my fuzzy head is capable of right now!)
My Cria has seen some more progress, another 20 rows, and is starting to take some shape. I may be the only one that thinks this, but I have to say that I am not enjoying making this garment. I know how popular Ysolda's patterns are, but I'm really not loving the way this is constructed. I know I'll like it when it is done, so I'm getting there, just not very quickly ;)
A few people have previously commented on liking the purpley-blue yarn I'm using to make it, which has always made me feel a little guilty for my poor photography skills! The yarn is not purpley at all in real-life, but my camera likes to think it is. So here is a slightly tweaked photo, to more accurately capture the colour (and potentially show the progress a little better):
Hmmm, it still looks kinda purple in places *rolls eyes at camera*
So that's my WIPW update. Book-wise, for the Yarn Along, I found a book on my shelf that I bought ages ago, is by one of my favourite authors and for some reason hasn't been read yet. So it's about time I started it!
