Well my week off was quite productive. I decided to have a go at some of the flower patterns in a book I got for Christmas and made some cute roses, hopefully one day I'll have enough for a bouquet. This wasn't on the list of things to do but who cares, I had fun :)
The lime vodka went very well. The recipe yielded a lot more than I had anticipated so I had to get a bigger jar but it all worked out very well. I had enough for the birthday girl, some for my mum and a little bit for myself. It was so yummy on it's own and went down very well with lemonade.
I had a go at felted soap as we were talking about it at the craft fair. I don't think I'll be trying it again. I takes quite a bit of effort to get the wool to felt around the soap and I didn't really experience any benefit of having wool around my soap. But you've got to try these things..
I finished a commission this week for a crocheted iPad mini case. I used chunky yarn and a 5mm hook so it will nice and thick and keep the iPad lovely and safe.
I made big progress on the hexagon patchwork. I sewed so much I had a dent in my thumb. I have a lot left to do but it was great to get a bunch done a see it coming together. I laid it all out to get an idea of how big it will be when it's done and I'd like it to be a little bigger so I'm thinking about ways I can add a border.
And finally, it may not look like much but I have made some progress on the socks for beloved. The knit two at a time method is a little complex but it will be a relief that when I finish one sock I don't have to start on another. Progress is slow as it's 4ply yarn on 2.5mm needles but they will get finished one day, hopefully...
