I have returned from my transcontinental trip! The potholders were perfect–I made enough for everybody, and it was a nice way to say than you to everyone.
While the trip was amazing, I am glad to be home–now I can work on whatever project I want to!! I am starting to create a pattern for a crocheted Dalek. We’ll see how it comes out. I’ve already had to redo some parts, and I’m trying to stay as close to the actual Dalek as I can, but might have to take a few liberties. This is the picture that I am modeling mine after. I figured it would be easier to copy a cartoon version, because it is already simpler than the original.
I am also working on a yellow dragon for a friend of mine. I’ll post a picture of all the different colors I’ve made so far when I’m done. I must admit, I always make two of each color so I can keep one. ^_^
And on top of all of this crafting, I am also hanging out with my cousins for two weeks. Boys, age 5 and 8. They are wonderful, but going to the pool/beach/park every ten minutes is not exactly conducive to much crocheting time. But I still have fun with them, so it’s all worth it.
