At the moment it is 15.5 x 12 inches. Finished article should be a bit bigger!

It is now 19.5" by 16.5"

It’s lovely but is it getting a life of its own as it’s getting bigger?

Started off as 15 stiches x 5 stiches, it is now 79 stiches x 69 stitches as it is being crocheted in the round. So each round adds 2 stiches to each dimension,

It is alive then 

You are very clever 

Why thank you, kind sir!

 

I'm still better at knitting than crochet - overall, because of the way the op affected me........and I haven't done any crocheting for years because of how awkward it was, compared to knitting.

 

If anyone is interested enough, they can go to a site called 'Love Knitting'. I am BethD there and you can see some of my knitting, including what I've posted here.

I know this is not knitting...but it is currently occupying all of my free time—a baby quilt for one of my choir friends: 89ABC1CA-EE87-4504-B6E7-BDF35997B6B4

i just got it pinned with the batting and backing yesterday afternoon, and started to quilt it. I hope to finish before the baby graduates high school. 😬

Haha, Baz! 

Ideally I would finish this week...I think earlier is better, with this particular quilt. Just imagine this poor young lady of college age, trying to cover herself with this rather small quilt! 

Rofl well it would keep her feet warm

I object to the title change. 

 

I have been knitting away furiously since the thread started. I have managed to knit half of the first third of the collar of my first jumper. 

 

Only jokin' about the title

I have taken a photograph. I just need to finish off my 35mm roll of film, get it processed at Boots and then scanned into a digital file.

I always saw the project and hence the finished garment as a long term project, likely to be completed after my retirement. Given that I have over a decade left in work, that may be a few years yet.

Gorgeous EFFT .....I particularly like the toddler cable cardigan 

Thank you.

 

As I haven't managed to get the baby hoodie in time I was thinking I might use the yarn I bought for that, to do a cable cardigan as it has more sizes than the hoodie.
