Work in Progress Wednesday

Posted on under Crafts, Crochet

Since it’s been almost a month since I’ve posted I have a few things to post with 😀 I’ve been working on a lot of swaps lately, and I am very pleased with them. I joined an 8 inch square swap, a bookmark swap, a few card swaps, tea & card swap, and another 12 inch square swap for this month. I’ve gotten 2 things ready for mailing already and I mailed out 2 things on the weekend. Here are the squares for the 8 inch swap, I used Jessicas square that I tested for her:

It took me a day to make each of the other squares, the basket weave one took me the longest because I had to fiddle with the join method and I ended up using my own sc join instead of what the pattern called for. I also added rounds to make it 8 inches. Same with the flower square, it was supposed to end with just the first white border but I added the other rounds.

I made the tea card in one evening and it opens up to hold a single tea bag in the package inside and the paper ribbon slides off to open the card. I think it looks cute. The bookmark took me longer to do because I got bored with it and let it sit for 2 weeks after I had finished the circles. I finished it yesterday and I really like it. I hope my swap partner does too.

I have the 2nd clue of the Mystery CAL done and I’m still working on Clue 3…and Clue 4 just came out yesterday. I’m going to be behind but that’s ok.

My friend needed a baby hat and beard for a shower gift so I worked on that last month. I couldn’t find a smaller beard pattern so she ended up giving that one to the mom and knitting a smaller beard for the hat. It went over really well at the shower so I’m happy about that.

That’s all for now!
