WIP Wednesday – Snowman Progress

11 Dec

I am making slow process on the Snowman for the FreshStitches CAL.  I don’t think I will make the December 12 deadline but I am going to try to finish him off by FO Friday.

Snowman WIP

Just a word of advice, if you have kittens that are 9 weeks old, 1) do not introduce them to yarn on the first day you bring them home and 2) do not leave a ball of bright orange yarn unattended while going to look for scissors to cut the yarn to finish off a carrot nose.   I may or may not have had to redo the last round of a nose after coming back to find to little girls playing with it!

WIP Wednesday

I still have the stick arms, the top hat and the cowl to finish.  I am thinking of making the cowl in red and green for Christmas.  Any other suggestions?

Be sure to check of Tami’s Amis Blog for more work in progress.

    I’m looking forward to seeing your snowman. I hope when I start crocheting again that my gauge looks as good as yours. wow. Cute and funny about the kittens.

      When I started it did not look like this. My first attempt was to make a granny square, it turned out more of a granny circle! In time you will get the hang of it. It is just like any new skill, it just takes practice.

    He looks adorable so far. No matter the age of the kitty they are drawn to your yarn ball, and offering them their own ball never satisfies them =)

      Good to know that it will never get better. I haven’t had kittens for about 20 years which was well before I started to knit and crochet. It is safe to say I have never that this problem with cats before.
