I worked a bit on my Chevron Winter Pillow, but I didn't bother taking a picture since there wasn't much difference to see.. I did however start with the knitting version of the basketweave stitch! It's one of the many stitches I wanted to learn.
It's kind of hard to see because of the yarncolor.. Sorry about that! I think I'm getting the hang of it, though I'm still experimenting (numbers of rows before switching, if that makes sense?) to see what kind of look I like. I have to say though, to me it does look very different from the crocheted version of the basketweave:
Other than that I used a candy corn crochet pattern to make some cat-toys with some left-over yarn for the animal shelter.
I do hope the cats at the shelter will like it, my kitten Nala is not interested in these... She just loves to play with the yarn, just like her mommy. (litterally, she just steals the yarn when I'm not looking!)
I'd really love to make myself (or at least start) a beanie next week. I have been wanting to start making a beanie for a while now, but I just can't decide which pattern and which color(s)! Do I have "beanie block"?
