Thingymabob

This is a dodecahedron which is a polyhedron with 12 points.  What is a hedron?  it is a geometric figure having a certain number of surfaces.





As I was looking for pattern on Ravelry,  I first found a Berroco pattern for this, and thank goodness I found Amy Thornton's pattern.  Thank you so much Amy!   I have made 3.  On the first 2 I would get to the end and somewhere along the way I did not assemble something right and I would take it all apart and assemble from start to finish without trouble.  




With my 3rd one I could assemble it as I went along, the difficult part is stuffing it, and with the 12th point I slip stitched 2 sides from the outside and it looks fine.  They are fairly quick to make, took apart a cowl and a shawl I made with sock yarn just so I could make more.   I also  bought some clearance sock yarn, so I can make lots of them.  If you try one leave all your tails long for stitching your seams tight when it is finished.  Enjoy!

New Crochet

 Here is the Lion Brand Shell I made with 3 skeins of Microspun, I did not make it long enough, so I added more at the bottom.


This is the mohair cowl, I think I will list this in my store.  



This is a cowl I created from the remaining sport weight yarn I had left from the Pearl's Cardigan.  I am going to list this in my store too, I just need some more pictures.   I am trying to use up some yarn before we go home to Wisconsin at Christmas, and I take my yearly trip to Herrshners.  I am on a roll, I just have to stay away from Hobby Lobby.  Next I will show you my thingymabobs.
