WIP Wednesday 08/06/2011



Good Morning lovely people!

I do hope this finds you well :) 

Well I have had a bit of a break from things crafty in the last week as I had been so busy that my arthritis in my fingers really started giving me grief so I let them have a bit of a break.... However yesterday I had the urge again and although my fingers were not quite up to knitting I got the hook out to continue with the...

da da da......


bag!



as you can see progress is still slow.... but still it is progress is it not?  I shall get this finished if it kill me!

and as a side line I also started something a bit smaller....

Yes I am crocheting an apple cosy... probably not the most useful item but very cute :)  I did make an arror as I have been using patterns in american crochet so initially I started it in uk trebles only to have to undo as the pattern was written in British terminology so back we went and did the thing in double crochet as intended!  

I admit the reason behind starting something small was so I actually may have something to show you for Finished Object Friday.... fingers crossed my fingers hold out!

Thank you so much for visiting and I do hope you will pop on over to Tami's where you can get links to many other WIP Wednesday projects!

Have a wonderful day!

  9. I like the apple cozy, I have an egg collection so I might might make a few for my eggs. I am moving soon, so I might make some to cushion my more breakable eggs.

  10. Th apple cozy looks utterly delightful! Yes, I can imagine translating a pattern from the english to metric scale would be a pain.

  11. Arthritis sucks, I hope you get some relief soon xxxx

    As for the projects - the bag is looking really cheerful and I am a total sucker for those apple cozies (Shhhh - I have a secret plan to make them for Xmas gifts for the people who took the mickey when I made them.)

  12. I love the colours on your bag (they remind me of strawberries, yum), and I've been meaning to make an apple cozy! I agree about it not being super-useful, but too cute an idea to resist...

  14. I find crocheting bothers my arthritis more then knitting, sounds like it's the opposite for you. I often wonder if it's the way we hold things, or simply the structure of our hands or fingers? I do sometimes think going back and forth between knitting and crocheting is the best, as it's less repetitive which is so hard on us.

    Take Care
