FO Friday has not come around for me this week.

My wrist has never quite been the same since I crocheted an exhibition piece for work experience about 2 years ago. I had to crochet non-stop for about 4 days in order to get it done in time, and I must have done something. Needless to say I can’t knit or crochet as much as I used to be able and I do need regular breaks. Or at least I tell myself that.

I don’t want to make it worse so I’m having to take a break for a bit, hence no FOs. I have worked a bit on my jumper and am on the last decrease row, and I’ve been trying to figure out how long it takes or me to make one unicorn so I can price accordingly. I’ve run out of stuffing though so I can’t work on it until I get paid so I can buy some  more.

I might not post for a few days, because a new MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) called Guild Wars 2 (you might have heard of it) is coming out in a few hours, and I do like my MMORPGs. I’ve been waiting for this for years as well, so my attentions will be diverted haha.

Hopefully I’ll be able to get a wrist brace and my wrist will hurt less so I can get some crochet and knitting done soon.

A unicorn appears! (FO Friday?)

Say hello to Charlize the Unicorn, although that is my name choice, not my friends.

After two days of almost solid work I have got her finished just in time for my friends birthday party. I added little crosses for her nose and used duplicate stitch to swing the colour change to the back since I took these photos, so don’t worry about it looking odd. I’ll be taking a small break (I’ll probably last two days knowing me) so my wrist can recover.

Now I just have to work out how to wrap it and get it to her. I might have a box somewhere…
