I have made a start with the mermaid tail, using a pattern from Crochet at Play Kat Goldin, the pattern is for 0 - 6 months so I am having to modify it slightly as I want it a little larger. Time will tell how this pans out.
So far it is working out well using two strands of yarn together to get the correct thickness. The photos don't show it well but there is a slight sparkle going through one yarn which makes it pop, yet retaining the lovely softness required for a baby.
It is certainly growing quickly so I don't think it will take much time to complete as long as I stay focused.
The problem I have is that I have more than one project on the go at anyone time. I am also working on the throw for my daughter.
The lighting is not very good it is a lovely charcoal grey Arran yarn, so not really showing its true colour. I have made a good start and am enjoying the process. It certainly helps now that the temperatures have dropped slightly making it so much easier to work with larger project on your lap.
Have you got any winter project plans?
