Teeny tiny projects

I will invariably intersperse largish projects with smaller ones. I am on a crochet kick at the moment. This comes in bursts. So I am in the mood to experiment and make small crocheted objects. These objects will usually not even see the light of day. I will carry them in my projects bag until I can't bear to face them anymore and so I will hide them away with my other long forgotten projects. For your viewing pleasure:

A pink cupcake (excuse the crappy photography - it's late and I want to go to bed!):

A granny square. I want to make more, but unfortunately, I made this on the spur of the moment. If I tried to replicate it I would fail miserably!

A couple of mini friends. You can't see it, but the orange one is actually a gold fish!

And a couple of turtles. I was on a turtle kick for a while - I just had to make one! (or two!)

Future projects include:

1. Another bag like the brown one in the photo (a present for my sister's friend)
2. A new ripple blanket, but a lot more thought out. With only three alternating colours.
3. And three cross-stitch projects in the making. But I stitch very slowly...

I wish there were more hours in the day.

How to finish a ripple blanket

Answer: I got bored real soon!

I don't think I'll be rippling a large project anytime soon. Although... I am thinking of making something a little less random in the near future. Maybe a pink and purple ripple blanket. But not just yet!

Rippling till the end

How will I know when to stop?

A postcard I made for postcrossing:

A girl sent me a card (I am going to guess it was from Finland, as I only get postcards from there!) and I saw she liked cows, so I wanted to send her something back. I just got the idea in my head and I had to make this postcard, whether she wanted it or not!

And my substitute piggy:

I made him to go in my substitute car. Maybe tomorrow I can get my regular car back.

Ripple Update

Just a tiny update on the ripple blanket:
