It's Been a While...

It's been a looooong while (longer than I anticipated, anyway). Classes, work, homework, exams, and spring break have kept me away from crochet and this blog for too long. I also joined a gym, and that's been eating up lots of time and energy. I graduate in a little over 3 months and there's lots to do before then.

I wanted to get back into the swing of updating, however. I've missed crochet so much. I have some projects I'm currently working on and some other things in store.

I made another R2, this time for one of the guys I work with (he was the one I made the previous Yoda for). I'm slowly making him the entire set. He is passionate about photography and plans on taking some pretty splendid photos of them when he gets his new camera (and, of course, when I get him the rest).

I also started a doily. I am using Knit Cro-Sheen (well, not EXACTLY that brand, but basically the same weight) and a bigger hook than it calls for, but I wanted it to turn out bigger. The yarn is a pretty light peach/pink color and I like how it's turning out so far. I've never followed a pattern like this, but it's easier than I thought. It's explained for the first part and the rest is symbolic, as shown:

That is going to be my constant work in progress. I love working on doilies partly because I feel so accomplished once they're finished. It will be another item to add to my craft fair bag. 

My overall project has been trying to use up a lot of the yarn I've accumulated (I don't have room for much more!). It's funny though, because so many times I go to start something specific I find I need yarn I don't have. Someday I will have my craft room and yarn wall!

Tonight I am going to start a Darth Vader and watch the MSU basketball game. Go Green!
