One-A-Day 11...Practising.

Time to report back on One-a-Day!

I set the Ripple aside and got going with various smaller projects.  I'm busy figuring out a sun hat for a little girl, doing hanger covers and such.

These little motifs below were done with yarn that I actually wanted to do rainbow hanger covers with.  But it hooks horribly (being the absolute cheapest you can find in SA, @ R2/50g). So I abandoned ship, but, not wanting to waste this little heap of yarn, decided to practise some circles, stars, flowers etc, and then use the lot to yarn bomb the tree in front of my FIL's house over Christmas ;-). 

It certainly is bright enough :-D

So I hooked one of these per day and will continue until the little balls of yarn are gone.

Will also practise starching the lot!

I'm looking forward to see what else happened in One-a-Day land, over at Carole's blog
(And I quietly envy all the lovely Christmas preparations up north!  A hot, summery Christmas is great, but there is just something about the cold, the candles, the darkness, the snow...).

Such pretty flowers, lovely, bright colours. I've just checked out your ripple blanket such gorgeous colours. Thank you for commenting on my ripple, I love how you described the colours of my ripple as chalky, I will use that. Have a good day.xxxx

Lovely idea to decorate the tree, you could make some really long chains to wrap too! The colours are lovely and cheery I'm sure the tree will be a sight to behold!

I love that you are going to yarn bomb with flowers. I found the starching easy, I used a template inside a food bag and spray laundry starch.
