WIP Wednesday – Happy Birthday Bob!

06 Feb

Today in not only WIP Wednesday but it is also Bob Marley’s Birthday! We love him so much here in New Zealand that today is a public holiday! OK so today might also be Waitangi Day (New Zealand’s national day) but I prefer to celebrate Bob’s birthday instead.

I figured today was the perfect day to finish the Rasta Slugs that I have been working on for the FreshStitches Slug-a-long.

All 3 are now finished but here is a photo of the red one with about 1/4 of the foot to be finished.

Slug WIP

I was a bit worried about getting the foot placement right because you just pick up random stitches around the bottom of the slug.  After 3 failed attempts I tried using long pins to mark the centre line and then several other pins evenly spaced from the centre to mark the stitches I would pick up. It is hard to explain without a photo – I forgot to take one – so I guess I will have to make some more slugs! What a shame!

Here is a sneak peek at the completed Rasta Slugs. Come back on Friday to see more of them. Sorry but I just had to have Rasta colours on today’s blog post 🙂

Slug Sneak Peek

WIP WednesdayThat is all from me today. Check back on Friday for photos of the Rasta Slugs. I have a feeling they are going to get up to no good if I let them outside!

I am linking up with Tami’s Amis Blog again.  Head over to check out what everyone else has been doing. See you on FO Friday!

    I’ve lived in the Pacific Northwest most of my life and have never seen such an adorable slug. 🙂

      Thanks. The red is a bit difficult to photograph because it is so bright. A bit of photo editing helps but it doesn’t do the slug justice.
