WIP Wednesday Update
It seems such a long time since I have blogged, I've been busy on other things including working on my knitting projects. However, I think it's time I updated you on what I've been knitting lately.
I think I am developing an obsession with shawls/wraps and stoles, hence the following projects:
My Lace Leaf Wrap is progressing well. It's a new technique for me as I told you previously but I think I now have got the hang of it, (it helps with my brilliant "Ticking Chart" of course):
I'm still loving the colour (Green) and the yarn Sirdar Balmoral. It's my current take out of the house and work on - project (i.e. on the train).
The final project is new, it's a Baby Blanket, for someone close to me who is due to have a baby in the Autumn. This is my Weekend Project, (not sure why the photo is the wrong way round but you get the picture...ha..ha get it "picture"...oh well never mind, I thought it was funny!!!)
The pattern called for Sirdar Denim Chunky and Denim Sport, the only problem is that I found out when going to buy them that these yarns were being discontinued...near disaster, until I found an online store that was selling at a very reasonable price (obviously getting rid of stock!!). I later found some in a local yarn shop at more than double the price - so I'm quite happy....RESULT!!
Looks like it's going to be a pretty quick knit, so may get finished way before the Autumn.
So that's my quick catch-up, for more WIP's check out here.
