FO Friday & Week In The Life Day 1

I have some crochet for FO Friday (finished object Friday for those not familiar with the term).

They are from a block a month group on Ravelry.  I definitely need some practice with blocks, as you can see from how crap these are, so I thought it would be a good way of learning new stuff.  For lots of much better finished objects than mine head on over to Tami where the FO Friday is hosted.

So here are my attempts

Hands up if you are doing the Week In The Life project run by Ali Edwards.  I had really good intentions with the documenting part of this but since it is the first week of the school holidays here in England I ended up bypassing the actual writing part and have just gone with the photographing.  I decided I would mainly use the Hipstamatic app on my iphone since it is better than the actual phone camera and using my phone is so much easier than taking the camera everywhere.  So here is Day 1 (Monday yeah I know it is Friday lol)

Hi there - I wonder what people will make of this in 50 years time when they start mining the seams of digital data that we are going to leave behind. I think it will be a bit of a contrast to much of the show bizz rubbish that dominates other media.

I like the idea of recording the "normal"

PS: although as the Dad of young kids I know that the first week of the hols is never normal!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves making crochet blocks just as practice/learning new stuff. I'm forever making them and then just frogging them, LOL. I like the ones you chose!

What an awesome idea to document your day in pictures! LOVE IT! We just went back to school, here in South Africa so very jealous that you are on holiday!

Love your squares and they aren't as bad as you made out, really I thought when I started to read they would look more like circles, but they are fantastic, and yes everytime you do a square again they get better.

Heehee, Uranus. =D

Sorry, sorry! I can't help it! But I don't see anything wrong with your squares. I would just lightly spray them with water or hover over them with an iron, and them stretch them into the shape you want.

A day in pictures - what a great idea! And the squares are great, don't get down on yourself! As they say, practice makes perfect ;)

In typical form I forgot everything when I say the food. The cheesecake looks DELICIOUS!

Great job!
