I just don't seem to be getting things finished at the moment so I thought I would take a moment to celebrate some of my many UFOs.  These are just the ones that have a good chance of being finished in the nearish future - there are many many more languishing in tubs just waiting for me to dig them out and get working.

Oddly enough I dug this one out of a UFO tub but I have no idea why it was there, it is huge already and perfectly useful as a rug to snuggle up under on the couch.  It is a prime number rug - every prime numbered ring is in red.  I guess it could just keep getting bigger and bigger which would be cool, maybe one day when I have some free time.

Prime Number Rug

This one is a kit I got from Prudence Mapstone at the last craft show I attended, basically some wools and a pattern for the square, you just mix and match colours as you please.  The yarn is Freetrade alpaca and is wonderfully soft.  he colours are not those that I would choose if left to myself but the work together wonderfully and I can't wait to see it finished.

I have just started work on the next round of crochet creatures and have been experimenting with feathers.  Trying to expand on the Gol Goroth design and work more detail into the wing structure and feathers.  I have a long way to go.


This is the beginning of a fantastic retro cardigan, I have only completed the front panels so far.  I am using a thicker ply than the original pattern to try and get it large enough to fit me - so far I think it is going to work.


I had enough wool left from Scott's lace rug to make another so started a different pattern from a doily book - it does not have that far to go I should really try and get it done before the weather gets too warm.  You really can't tell what the pattern looks like now it needs to be blocked before it will kook any good.

And lastly my African Flower rug (actually I do seem to have an awful lot of rugs on the go - I can think of at least three more that have not made it here) inspired by Pandatomic a Flickr contact who does absolutely marvelous crochet work.

Anyway that is just a few of the things I am pottering around with at the moment.  Later this week I will tell you about my new toy and share some of the things I have been making with it.


  1. Love the rugs and the embroidery is amazing! COOL bags Ma and Ta

  2. Oh Lucy, I'm blushing of your too kind words! *_*
    And quite intrigued by your retro cardigan I must say. The african flower rug looks very promising too. And I just can't get enough of your weird Cthulhu-like creatures!
