I did have a finish this week.
The Child/Baby Yoda was completed in a few days time. My local Grand had requested I make one for her. She and her dad are huge Mandalorian fans and she loves The Child. He was pretty fun to make other than sewing it all together. I have not crocheted much lately and found out it does cramp up my hands a bit. I think most of the cramping was due to working with very small pieces and trying to hold on to them while crocheting in the round.
The Child accompanied us to Trivia, Wednesday night, and got quite a bit of attention and rave reviews. The MC of Trivia fell in love with him and begged me to make one for him for his birthday. Of course his birthday is tomorrow (Monday). Deciding to make another one took a bit of convincing myself I could do it and have it ready for the next Trivia night.
I started on it Saturday morning and this is as far as I have gotten. The head and ears are completed. It really is not too bad, considering I only had about 3 hours total to work on it yesterday. Why only 3 hours? Hubby and I took our Grand Daughter and Godson to see "The Rise of Skywalker". (Yes it was very good!) That took 5 hours out of our day with pick up, movie and drop off of kiddos. When we got home, we had just an hour before we needed to get ready for Mass. After Mass, we went out to our favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner and then home. That gave me about 1.5 hours to work on it again before I finally succumbed to sleepiness.
I should be able to complete it this afternoon while doing laundry, watching football playoffs and reading blogs. I also need to make a card for the guy, to go along with the bday gift.
Other than those things I only worked on Hubby's socks but you would not be able to tell a difference. I only got 8 rows added to them.
Look what I wore yesterday.
You may wonder why this is of importance. #1. It normally does not get that cold here where I want to wear flannel lined boots. Since we were out and about most of the morning,yesterday, I was happy to have them on my feet. #2. My feet are pretty messed up from my RA. I was not even sure I would be able to get these back on my feet, much less be comfortable walking in them. They felt fine all day! #3. My Grand and Godson said they were pretty 'cool' shoes for a grandma to be wearing. Yes, I am the cool old church lady LOL.
Until Next Time.........................Happy Crafting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
