Happy Mother’s Day!

Can you guess what this will be?

It’s great for using up leftovers. It’ll be one funky… well, you’ll see next time when I’ve got photos of the FO. It’s also a great reminder for me why I don’t crochet that much. Because the gauge has to be super tight on these to make sure the stuffing won’t poke out, it really hurts my hands. Especially if the fibres don’t have a lot of give in them (like the alpaca that I’ve used for a part of it). I love the finished product, but I just don’t want to deal with the stiff fingers and cramps I get while making it. So I’ll just stick to knitting for the most part.

Jaden’s pieces are all complete and blocked. I had every intention of starting the seaming this weekend, but things got in the way. Plus I couldn’t decide how I wanted to start the seaming, so I’m leaving it for next weekend. In the meantime, I’ve started a lace scarf out of some very pretty pale lilac sillk laceweight. My own pattern and once it’s done and tested and all that jazz, I’ll be putting it up on Ravelry as a free download.

On a final note to this super short post, Happy Mother’s Day! I wish I could see my mom today, but I did get to speak to her on the phone earlier so that’ll have to do until I see her again. I really hope she likes her present when my sister takes it back with her next month. All I’ve let her know is that it’s done, and she’ll just have to wait a few more weeks to actually see what it is. :D
