WIP Wednesday #31

So, after last week's little reflection on the bounty of WIPs I seemed to have amassed, I've made quite a bit of progress this week on one of them.

The photo of it last week was upside down so it's not really easy to compare but I've worked from the thick yellow up. I'm quite impressed with myself. It's Sublime Bamboo & Pearls DK which feels amazing. But it's very strandy (is that a word?!?!) so if I dont hold the hook at exactly the right angle it snags lots and drives me slightly insane but I need to keep trying to remember that it will be worth it in the end because the blanket feels amazing.
I think that it will end up being about double this size so should be quite a nice size for a child's blanket.
I'm linking up with Tami, Ginny and Kristine again this week, pop over to see some other WIPs.
As part of Ginny's linky party, she also shares what she's reading at the moment. As my course is finished I'm free to do a bit of reading for fun again now so really should get Jubilee finished. It's written by a mum from school and every time I see her I feel bad that I haven't finished it and can't make intelligent conversation about her amazing first novel.
There's some other stuff I'm reading too at the moment but it's pretty dull and I'll fill you in soon.
Have a good week. I'm determined to get more blogging done. Watch this space.......

WIP Wednesday #30

I was thinking about my WIPs. and I seemed to keep thinking..... and keep thinking.

I realised there are quite a few of them.

There's this.......

And this......

And also this......

Notice a pattern???

I think it can be classed as an obsession.

But there is also this......

And I hate to think about all the other little projects buried away in boxes and bags.........socks, mug hugs, tea cozies......oh well.

In fairness, theres been a little work on the Wingspan but not so much on the ripples. Work is crazy busy at the moment so progress is rather slow.

But I love the ripple blankets. I need to get at least one of them finished so I can use it and admire it.

I'm linking up with Tami and Kristine, pop over to have a look at all the other WIPs.

FO Friday!

WOW. it's been a while.

Actually it's been ages. 4 months actually since my last FO post.

And not just 4 months since my last FO post but 4 months since my last FO!!! Rubbish!!

But I'm back. I have a FO and will have another one soon. I finally finished off the baby blanket I started to take away with me.

Here it is..

It's not too big but it's small enough to post back to Canada to my fab friend and her beautiful baby.

I cant believe the way the stripes fitted the pattern so well. That is PURE chance.

I'm off to work on my WIP so that maybe I can have another FO sooner than I hope. I'll try to update you on my yellow ripple blanket soon too.

I'll also pop over to Tamis to see some other FOs.
