My creative space

This was last night.*

This is today.*

I really hate frogging things, but it was too long (due to me not following instructions properly... how unusual!). So rather than stick my head in the sand and pretending it will be fine (it won't), it's been pulled out and restarted.

It WILL be a Michelle version of the Leonie shrug, which I think will be perfect for keeping me warm this winter while making way for my ever expanding belly.

Gah! At least having started it once already, I know that it will come together really quickly! I'm giving myself 2 weeks, with not too many opportunities for crafty distractibility....

Lots of craftiness can be found over at Kootoyoo today. Go and check it out!

*Same yarn, different light. The true colour is somewhere in between.

Snap! The kid similar version took one longish night - I reckon you'll romp it in (and then never take it off, as per my kid!)...

This wrap must be the new trend, yours is the third one I have seen. Oh I wish I could crochet and it would be a great stash buster too. Maybe one day.

I can't believe they are the same colour. They look so different. I had just started mine when I saw you on Sat and finished it the next day (well 4 rows from finishing it). It'll be perfect for your pregnancy winter wear and I predict you'll have it done by this time next week.

It's not fun when you know you've gotta do it all over again! It'll be worth it in the end.

Well done you for unpulling it - I have a few projects stashed away which I know I should start again but can't bring myself to do!!! I followed your link to the crochet design and think I might just have to have a go too! x

I hate frogging things but sometimes it's easier.

Good for you! I unravelled recently because of a little hole row and rows back and i was very proud of myself for being a perfectionist crafster. so not in in my personality, but essential for good stuff that lasts a long time. enjoy the re-make! xo m.

WOW - I missed something... "your ever expanding tummy". Oh my! How wonderful... you are speaking of being pregnant aren't you??? When are you due??? CONGRATULATIONS!!!
