The projects I started:
Rice Hot Pack: So far very easy and fun to make, and quick to work up! I think I'll make a bunch of these as Christmas presents for my family in Canada (where the temperature can drop to -20°C during the day in winter, and even -40°C at night, yikes!) since they can be heated up in the microwave! free pattern here!
Katy Cowl: This one I started in September already, but I've made some more progress and I'm almost finished! I still have to sew together and weave in ends!
Practising the star stitch! Used this pattern and this video to get it right, but I'm making a blanket instead of pot holders, because a) since it's a bigger project, I can practise the stitch more, b) I can use up some left-over yarn, and c) I can donate a snuggle to the animal shelter nearby!
Crochet Fingerless Mittens: I think I'm about half-way through on the first one! I'm not sure whether this will be a present to myself or a present for a friend.. Anyhow, with the weather getting colder, I'd better hurry up finishing these!
There you have it! That's what I've been working on this week. Hope you all have a lovely week!
