Not Quite the Progress

Octopus hat #2 seems to be working up a bit quicker than octopus hat #1. At least, I think so.

Since I tracked my progress on the blog, I can actually compare. 

On July 26th, I had barely begun. The next week, on August 2nd, I had the back portion and the hat itself done, but I hadn't yet explained what I was doing. 

I revealed the project on August 9th, and it appears that the tentacles and a couple suckers were done. I'd only got a couple more suckers done by August 16th. I finished all the suckers by August 23rd

I just started attaching the tentacles and suckers on August 30th. By September 6th that was finished. And the eyes were attached (and the whole thing finished) by September 13th

I started hat #2 by September 20th. And now I'm not feeling so confident, because this would be week 3 of hat progress, and I'm just about where I was on August 9th with hat #1 (week 3). 

I've only barely started one sucker: 

Which means I need to get on this a bit quicker, or I'm going to be running up on my deadline. 

That means my goal for this week is to complete all the suckers and get them attached to the tentacles. I already made the eyes (I made three sets of eyes at the same time), so that should make the finishing go a bit faster. 

Fingers crossed. I'd like to get hat #3 started this month. It's doable, but only if I get more done this week. I'll keep you posted.

    1. We'll see. I thought I'd be much further along by now.

  2. When I crocheted, it seemed to get quicker each time I did the same pattern. Hopefully you'll find that for hat #3. They are SO cute!

    1. Yeah, I know what I'm doing this time, so I don't have the rip-out-and-repeats that I did the first time out.

  5. It looks really cool so far. Although kind of spider-y. You know how I feel about spiders!

    1. It's not really hard. Just a bunch of bits that have to be put together.
