Crochety
Of course I ran out of wool on the last legs of Crocky's broomstick lace (or rather: plunger lace) scarf, so that project is on hold for now. I did purchase some ... Bändchengarn. Ribbon yarn? I don't know, but it looks like this and completed a scarf with that. I'm quite happy with how it turned out, but it isn't very warming, albeit decorative:



I love this stitch, it's fun to do and looks quite fancy, especially with the new yarn (the above scarf is about 1,60m long and made of exactly one ball of the yarn mentioned above).

I also caved and started working on a project involving this year's version of the granny squares that is currently all the rage on Ravelry, a pattern called "African Flowers", though I don't really understand where the name comes from.



Currently I'm trying to work on a Heidi Bear's Happypotamus, though I can't join-as-you-go as required by the project and though I don't really have any of the stuffing material that I'd need yet, either.

Quite apart from the fact that I'm not entirely clear what I'm going to do with a Hippopotamus toy once I'm done. Crocheting does clutter up the place with stuff. Ah, we'll see how this one turns out. I binned some of my early projects already because I didn't think that they were salvageable and I couldn't unravel all of them, especially if they were made of fuzzier yarn.
