I am making slow progress this week with the Gecko but I am almost done (except for the attaching of all the parts). Last week I showed you all the fiddly pieces that I had finished, this week I have most of the body completed with just the tail to go. The end is in sight.
I have to say it really does look a bit strange especially with the body not being stuffed. I can’t wait to attach the eyelids to the eyes, that will be the finishing touch that really makes this pattern as good as it is. Hopefully I can get a chance to sit down tomorrow night and finish this guy but I have been hoping to get a chance most of this week! He will get finished, eventually!
Until the end of August the PlanetJune Ravelry Group are holding a Free-for-All CAL where we can choose any PlanetJune pattern (there are now 150 patterns and not just amigurumi) to crochet. I am using this CAL as motivation to make some progress on the PlanetJune patterns that are sitting in the WIP pile. I think there are 3 including the Gecko, Giant Panda and a potted plant. I do have a study break coming up in 2 weeks so fingers crossed I can finish these projects!
