A Challenge: The FreshStitches Kit Club

This January, I joined the FreshStitches Kit Club. The idea is you pay a two-monthly fee and get a complete kit to make an amigurumi every other month. I figured I could try it out, since I bought a few FreshStitches patterns in the past. They’re fun to do and the bonus with the Kit Club is that you get to make yours with a little twist, apart from just the pattern.

So when I got my first package last week, I got pretty excited! Here’s what it looked like:

It’s a chick that turns into an egg! Or maybe it’s the other way around… I started on the pattern right away and managed to finish working on it today:

Of course, I got too excited. I checked out the special Kit Club Web page today and found that I’d been too quick. In order for the special twist to work, you needed to make some minor changes to the pattern and keep all parts separate. So I ended up frogging everything T_T Now I have to start all over again.

For now, I will keep the special twist a secret. That is, until I’ve managed to create the intended product 😛
Which, I will have to admit, might take a while. It’s been busy lately to say the least. Work is demanding a lot of my time and free days aren’t a certainty any more. Also, Boyfriend and I have been looking in to buying a house, for which I am also very excited, but we still need to do a lot of research, view possible houses and get everything together. Plus, one of our cats has been a bit sick the past few days, so we need to keep an extra close eye on him. All in all, I’m certainly not bored, but I’m afraid this also means that I will be less able to blog the coming month or so. Please bear with me, I have some patterns lined up still (one’s already done, but I just don’t have the time to type it up right now…)

What have you guys been up to lately?
And remember, I try to keep the Crochetnanigans FaceBook page updated a bit more than I am able to do here, so if you want to keep an eye on my current projects, be sure to check it out!

Cheers, Lydia
