First up...#2, the corset coffee cozy. I think it qualifies as random just because it's a corset coffee cozy. I added grommets and sent it off to my friend who is about to release her first novel, a steampunk paranormal romance called Wicked as they Come. Go pre-order it, now! But yeah, when I stumbled across the pattern, it just had to be made.
NOTE: I just googled "corset coffee cozy" to find the pattern to link here and there are like a million corset coffee cozy's out there. Who knew?
Next up, #3, 4, 5: Wee baby hats for three wee babies who were born too early to a mom in my ICAN chapter. I have never made preemie hats and I don't know if they will fit or not. I used measurements from the Interwebz and my "preemie" stand in baby doll. Two boys and a girl. I wanted to get away from the traditional pink/blue and loved these color combos. Loosely based on this pattern, I hope to made a set of bigger hats soon!
And, #6, 7, 8: Veggies! My daughter is a Vegetable Pixie in a play. She plays the Carry, the carrot. Her buddies are Aspy the asparagus, Spinny the spinach and Broc the, well, you get it. So I made veggies for each kid to give out at the performance next weekend. These are all basically free handed with the addition of "animal eyes" safety eyes. I dig 'em. My daughter doesn't want me to add noses or mouths. What do you think?
|Ok, so there are 4 veggies, but I can't count crochet for my own kids in my ROAC count.|
Spinach was hard. Spinach is just leaves. No body to anthropomorphize. So I just stitched 3 leaves together. Tell me it's at least somewhat reminiscent of spinach, just to make me feel better.
Whew, so it's week 6 of the year and I am already 2 ROAC's ahead. That will be helpful as the semester ramps up with a vengeance!
