Sunday! I missed last week, entirely. So here is what I did, kinda.
I fiercely love my friends, and Covid really puts a kibosh on being able to physically be present when things go awry. Since I can’t be there to give hugs and eat cake with her, I made a proxy! Behold, the “Cuddle Me Elephant” by Amigurumi Today (Ravelry Link). I crocheted it out of Big Twist Value Solids in Soft Gray on a size D/3.25mm Furls Odyssey Hook. I started it on Friday (the 16th) and finished it Monday (the 19th). I didn’t modify the body pattern, I’m pretty novice at amigurumi. I used the 6mm eyes I had floating around from… I don’t know when.
My parents went home this afternoon. Which means I was able to start working on the BSJ for a pending arrival. I wasn’t even through the CAST-ON when my son proclaimed he lost his FIRST TOOTH. He has really been working on wiggling that thing since he noticed it was loose a few (literally) days ago. So, I had to put aside my project to construct a “Tooth Pillow”. Me, being EXTRA, can’t just make a little thing. I let my kids design theirs and then do my best to execute their vision. Surprisingly, my son’s cat was easier (and better??) than the traditionally shaped tooth my daughter designed. The Tooth Fairy will have a very easy time finding the tooth, and my son will easily be able to find whatever the tooth fairy leaves.
Other projects: No new pictures of the blanket or the sweater. I’ve been working on them. Hopefully next week will have a FO.
Breakfast food is popular in my house. I make waffles quite frequently. Generally I make sourdough waffles, but I didn’t really have enough sourdough discard to make enough waffles for 6. I made a double combined batch of Sourdough and Bisquick. They were phenomenal! Airy AND tangy. I sliced up strawberries and had purchased whipped cream (in a can) for the occasion. There are enough waffles for breakfast another day!!
This week I plan on taking pictures of ALL THE STUFF. The cherry blossoms are starting to fall, like snow, and may provide a nice background for pictures.
Adieu, until next time!
