Senioritis

I have a case of senioritis. A bad one. With only a week and a half of classes left, I’m ready to be done. As a result, I’ve been doing more knitting than I probably should. 

My first project comes from the book Mini Knitted Woodland by Sachiyo Ishii. It’s a dangerous book. The projects are all tiny and adorable and woo you with the thought of “Well, it’ll only take me an hour to finish.”  NO! Put the book down. Yes, each project only takes a couple hours, but once you start you will not want to stop because you are so close to a finished project. It’ll be a great book once I’m done with classes and finals but for now I think I need to hide it somewhere so I’m not tempted to make anything from it until I’m done with school. Here is the product of my afternoon yesterday (please ignore the mess in the background. I’m going through my stuff in preparation to move):  

 

Like I said, the projects are adorable, but addicting. 

In another chapter of the senioritis saga, I have learned that crocheting is not as terrible as I once thought. I always found it very confusing, but once you figure out the basic stitches, it isn’t so bad. I decided to learn how to crochet for real this time (I’d previously only crocheted a lopsided mini pig) and this teacup was the result.  

It was all single crochet so pretty straightforward, but the end result is pretty cute for a first project if I do say so myself. 

Ok, enough crafting. I need to get back to work.  

More Pigs! And crocheting!

Well, now that classes are over, I’ve had more time to knit and try out a few things. I knit another pig, and I figured out how to crochet! I’m not very good right now and my amigurumi pig is a little crooked but I think he’s kind of cute that way. Crocheting animals is much easier than knitting too!
Do you guys crochet? And what do you crochet?
