Red Riding Hood Scarf

This was supposed to come out completely different.

Unplanned additions: fringes and ribbon.
Planned additions that were not added: granny squares sewn on to the ends.

That's why it's a little short. The granny squares were suppposed to lengthen it. But this wool was not cooperating with the crochet needle, I'm afraid. It's a nice warm wool, a nice and thick scarf. All done in simple knit stitch. Nothing fancy.

Pom pom wreath

I'm sure Sis is going to think it's garish (and she's probably right) but I love it. The next one will be more colour coordinated, I swear!

Recent Projects

I have started knitting again. I haven't done it since I was a child. I sort of lost interest because I wasn't very good at it, but I felt like a nice thick scarf and I realized I couldn't get what I wanted from crochet (But I still love you, Crochet!) So I bought some nice thick yarn and some new knitting needles and saw a few tutorials on youtube and this is what I have at the moment:

It's a nice bluish colour. I have some ideas for how to finish it off, but I don't want to get ahead of myself. For now, just the knitting is fine.

Hexagon Blanket II:

It's already adorning the sofa and looks great. But isn't finished yet. There are quite a lot of hexagons to get through yet.

A new x-mas ornament:

This was an experiment. Actually, I have quite a few experiments, but this was the one that came out the best. I want to make a few more, but at the moment, crafting is at a minimum. I am in study mode.
Well, I'm in semi-study mode. I can't seem to hit the books. I hate Economics and it's difficult to study something you loathe...
