I haven’t managed to get to the yarn shop this month, so I’ve had to work with what little yarn I’ve already got. In some ways that’s a good thing, as I’ve had to get creative and find projects that can work with what I’ve got, but it also means that I don’t have the right colours for the Geekghan squares that have been released this month and I’m now three squares behind 🙁 Oh well, looks like I’ll be doing a lot of crochet this holidays to catch up. Isn’t that a tragedy.
In the mean time, I’ve been using some cotton yarn recycled from an old jumper. I already used some for my October Nights Headband, now I’ve added another hair accessory:

I’ve already posted photos of my Small Totoro, but I’m going to post more anyway because I love him. Even though he’s the wonkiest of the three and his eyes are too far apart.

And I FINALLY finished my second Tiny Turtle! I made my first Tiny Turtle of Happiness way back in October last year, and loved it so much I immediately started another one in the opposite colours, but got bored and didn’t pick it up again till this month.

I’m not as happy with this one as the original,I did a pretty dodgy job of stuffing and sewing him together, and messed up his face a bit too, but I still think he’s pretty cute 🙂
He also falls over if you don’t balance him exactly right. Poor little guy.
I also started a scarf with some bulky yarn I’ve had lying around for a while. I need more yarn to finish it, but I’m thinking I might start again anyway. It’s coming out a bit stiff, and I think I’ve made it a bit short, so I might try with a bigger hook.

And that’s it! Well, there’s also a Christmas present I made, but that’s a secret! At least until after the
victim giftee has received it. Just on the off chance that they see this before they get it and ruin the wonderful surprise.
