Ta-dah! Sophie's Universe!

It's been nearly 18 weeks now since I started on the Sophie's Universe CAL, and I cannot believe how much I've learned in that time. Sophie has made me a much better and more confident crocheter - what a girl! 

Before we get to the photos, a HUGE thank you to the incredible Dedri Uys from www.lookatwhatimade.net, the designer of this stunning project. 

Now, isn't she beautiful?

  11. Amazing work. How did you stay motivated after so many weeks? I love your colours and thank you for taking close-up photos of the special details and their stitches. I am not surprised that there is a lot of learning for anyone tackling that Sophie's Universe. I just love it.

    1. I think the motivation partly stemmed from the building excitement over the week about what was going to happen next! Plus it is just a fantastically written pattern - clear text, easy picture tutorials when required, and lots of links to tutorials for special stitches :) I've also really enjoyed sharing it with all of you!
