Hello all! I hope we are leaving a lovely week so far? I just finished work so am going to spend the rest of the evening snuggled up on the sofa with my yarn and hook.
I have 2 WIP’s this week.
First is my Spun Gold Shawl, which is now over half way finished.
And second is my Willow Crop sweater, by Crafting For Weeks. I am mking this as part of the BIPOC CAL going on over on Instagram at the mo! Its such an excellent way to flood the feeds with designs from marginalized designmers – it can only make our little corner of the internet more diverse.
And as you will notice, the blanket from last week is no longer in my WIP list. I finished it at the weekend – keep yur eyes peeled as I will be posting pics tomorrow.
Hello all! I hope you are well and you are having a productive week!
I have 3 projects on the hooks this week.
First is another ted for the Yarndale creative community project.
I started on a Brioche Hat using some yarn my mum and dad gave me for christmas.
And then also a brioche cowl. The hat is a little complicated for travel (the sort of pattern where you have to check the pattern every row) so to satisfy my love of brioche I started the cowl as my travel project, with the hat being my home project.
Yes I lost control a little! I have had to be a little monogamous recently in order to get my bridesmaids gifts ready, but now they are done I couldn’t wait to start multiple projects!
Were half way through August already! Mad isn’t it! Where do the weeks go!
I have 2 projects on my hooks this WIP Wednesday.
1. The Doris Shawl by Kat Goldin using Truly Hooked Standard Sock.
2. My first Trauma Teddy for the Yarndale 2019 Creative Community Project.
I only have to pop the arms on the teddy and then sew him up and stuff him, and I will get back to monogamously working on the shawl. Yes I know I said it before but I have no choice now. I only have 12 more days to finish it!
This WIP Wednesday, I have 2 projects on the hooks!
I am on the final leg of my Lucinda Shawl, by Annelies Baes using my Truly Unbeleiva-Dying Advent Calendar 2018 mini skeins. All of the mini skeins are now used up, so it’s just the last panel of Double Crochet to go! But now this project is quite large (290g and longer than me) it is too unwieldy for travel, so I started a new project which I could carry in my bag.
Today I started on a Doris Shawl by Kat Goldin, using Truly Hooked Standard Sock in Delirium and Alter Ego. It’s a peculiar shape right now and the edges are getting a bit wobbly, but I shall have faith. I have noticed Kat Goldin shawls can sometimes be a little odd whilst working on them, but blocking sorts it all out.
It’s the last day of July! Crazy how quick the year is passing. And it’s Wednesday, so it’s time for the weekly update on WIP’s.
I have just 1 this week. I am afraid I am going to have to be a bit monogamous this month as I have to get three gifts finished by the end of August. My WIP this week is the first.
This is my Lucinda Shawl. I am over half way now, having used miniskein 13 of 24. These are my next 3. The rainbow of colours is getting more and more vibrant! I have been really good and have been sewing in my ends every couple of mini skeins. In my normal way of working I would have waited until the end and then whinged about the 52 ends that needed sewing in. I feel like I have grown a little! Maybe there hope yet!
And the observant among you will notice the sleeveless tee is no longer in my WIP’s. I finished it last night! I will share it with you just as soon as I can get out and take some photos!
It’s WIP Wednesday and I have the same 3 projects on my hooks as last week.
I have reached the lace section of my Lucinda Shawl
I will be using all of the advent yarn I got last Christmas to make the lace.
I have added a few more rows to part 9 of my Hook n Learn CAL blanket by Simply Crochet Magazine
And I am still working on the Sleeveless top from issue 70 of Simply Crochet Magazine – it is my home project though and being on nights I don’t have a lot of time to crochet at home so there is no progress to share.
Hello all! Happy Wednesday! I have 3 projects on the hooks today!
I started my Lucinda Shawl
I moved on to part 9 of the Simply Crochet Hook n Learn Cal. It is Apache tears, which is new to me. I had to Jimmy it a little though as the original design required you to fasten off each row and join again for the next. That would have meant 108 ends to sew in… Yeah, I am not mad so I am trying to make it work by only fastening off to change colour.
And finally I have made a few more inches progress on my sleeveless top from issue 70 of Simply Crochet Magazine.
I hope you are all having a wonderful WIP Wednesday.
