Some exciting news this week - my entry pack for the 2015 Sydney Royal Easter Show arrived!!! Now that I actually have the little barcodes and entry passes, it's a little more real... must get working on my scarf and hippo entries!
It's now week 5, Part 6 of the Sophie's Universe CAL hosted by Dedri Uys at lookatwhatimade.net :D
I've done two parts since I last blogged about this project, because I was saving Part 5 to do at our Crafternoons gathering on Sunday!
Here is Part 5! I particularly love the little yellow tulips - so cute!
And Part 6!
Sophie did nearly go over the balcony a few times last night - I discovered at the end of Row 53 that I'd missed one (ONE!) stitch at the end of Row 51 :'( After some cursing and icecream, I decided I really did need to fix it, so undid all of Rows 53 and 52, and fixed up the end of Row 51 and then redid 52 and 53. It seemed heartbreaking at the time but I know I'll be happier with it in the end, especially when I don't know what stitches will be needed later in the work!
Because I made her wait until Sunday to do Part 5, Kathryn has not had time to do Part 6 yet. I love her colour choices though - it's like the garden at nighttime, whereas mine is the garden in full sunshine! Her blue tulip row is gorgeous :D
We've also convinced our mother to join the CAL, and ordered her some lovely squishy Stylecraft yarn to do it in! Hopefully it will arrive soon, but knowing how fast Mum crochets it won't take her long to catch up...
I'm doing pretty well with my list of things to do this week - posted the crocodile stitch booties to their new owners (will hopefully get some cute pictures to share with you soon), posted a hippo to a brand new baby, got my Sophie up to date, and I've done two scarves so far. Phew, and it's only Wednesday!
How is your week going?
