Another week, another WIP Wednesday round up! As usual, most of my crocheting energy from the weekend went on small, quick to finish projects like the bee and not on my ongoing WIPs! So I’m not sure how much progress there is to share. Lets take it one WIP at a time, and see how we go.
I talked about this a fair bit at the weekend, so don’t have more to add today. I haven’t woven in my ends yet. But here’s another gratuitous project photo:
Well, these have been on the back burner for a while now. I’ve finally got around to taking a more up to date photograph:
I’ve been waiting for my new stitch markers to arrive – I won four more sets on eBay, so I can now carry on with this one. I think this will be my go-to portable project for the foreseeable future.
Aurora Vest Cardigan
Has been shamefully ignored. I guess I’ve not been in a small square motif sort of place. Although, of all my WIPs, this is the one my work colleagues are most excited about, having seen the photos so far. Maybe I’ll pick this one up again this week.
Afternoon Tea Fingerless Gloves 2
Are still awaiting buttons. After the success of doing the buttons on the first pair at role-play night, I may take these along this evening and get them finished. Then they can go on the blocking board when I come home, and hopefully be finished to share on Friday.
I’ve been doing the odd row here and there, but it hasn’t really developed much so far. I’ve hit the base of the daffodils in the middle now, so it needs a touch more concentration to work on. Another good portable project though. Might take this one next time I go to knitting group.
Levelling up gloves
These haven’t changed. Ends still not woven in. I haven’t made a thumb. All this nice sunny weather hasn’t encouraged me to work on my really warm woollen mittens!
Round Baby Blanket
Chugging along nicely. I have discovered that its intended recipient is a boy, but that’s ok, because the blanket is fairly neutral in both style and colour. I also have less time than I thought (I must have miscounted the months) as it’s a July due date. Never mind, it will still be finished well before it’s needed.
And just for fun, introducing two new projects to my WIP Wednesday roundup:
Ye Liveliest Awfulness
I blogged about this project yesterday, so can’t really say I’ve added much to it since then!
An amigurumi coral snake, which has been sat in my project queue on Ravelry since Jamie saw it back in October and said “That’s awesome, you should make that”. I’m using yarn left over from the Granny Rectangle. So far, it looks like this:
I’m not using safety eyes because I don’t have any, so I will have to fudge them when the time comes. I think this snake is going to live wrapped around my dragon tree, George, as the living room is rapidly filling up with amigurumi and I need to expand my horizons a bit.
Don't forget, this post is part of WIP Wednesday, so head over to Tami's blog to see what else people are up to this week!
