FnwF January 2019

For the first time in a long time I finally remember the first Friday of the month was Friday Night With Friends! This is hosted by the lovely Cheryll, and takes place, funnily enough, on the first Friday of each month.
Click here to read a little more about it and catch up with what everyone did.

As usual for me, my Friday night extended into Saturday. I am working on the clothes for a crochet doll, which will be a gift for my friend's children. I am hoping it will be gifted soon! But I do keep having more ideas of outfits to make, or variations of outfits.

On Friday night itself, I finished a 'raincoat' for the doll. This involved adding sleeves. I also made a 'rainhat'. The black band was added on Saturday. I really love how the hat turned out!




On Saturday, I started work on a jumper. I got derailed slightly as I pulled the wool out of my bag...


...but once it was sorted (a couple of hours later), I could get on and crochet. It's not quite finished, and I think the wool may be a little chunky so the jumper won't quite fit under the coat, but it can go with another outfit! The wool is too fun not to include!





My crocheting on Saturday got side tracked by another project. Darren's parents bought us a fire pit for Christmas (he had been wanting one most of last year!). Cue a quick trip to a hardware store, and a little bit of building.




And then my mad husband sat outside in winter by the fire. I don't feel like it was giving off enough heat to be worth it but he was happy. So happy he was out there on Sunday too!



I hope you all had a lovely FnwF!

Great crochet, it's something I cannot manage as my fingers are not good enough. I love the fire pit, we had ours lit the other evening, very cosy.

That hat is too cute! I love that yarn you are using now and can't wait to see what you make with it. I would have left him sitting outside alone too, I don't like cold of any kind!

How cute is that hat!!!!! Please show us the rest of the doll outfits as they are finished. Stay warm....I have the opposite problem at the moment.

Vicki said...

The doll is so cute. Maybe gift it with an initial set of clothes and then gift extras every now and then.

Such sweet little clothes.
The fire pit looks great, I'd want to try it out too! Ours is covered with snow at the moment.

Nice work on the dolls clothes and the gorgeous coloured crochet.
The fire pit looks good too but maybe when the weather warms up a little!
