WIP Wednesday - 08.06.2011

So this is just a quick update on where I'm at with my Work In Progress(es)...(can you say that???).
  • Anyway...dreaded scarf is still the dreaded scarf...nothing going on there at all!!
  • Shrug update will come on Friday...
  • So, I have been working on this Poncho for my daughter.  Its knitted with Hayfield Bonus Aran in Purple.  Purple is my daughter's favourite colour:
It's a fairly easy knit on circular needles with some increasing along the way.  It's a good knit for de-stressing, as I don't have to think too much about what I'm doing.  I am hoping though that it will not look like a hat (as  it does now), when I take it off the needles but will stretch quite nicely (with some blocking), into a beautiful girl's poncho..or else I am in trouble!!

That's it for now, guess I should really cast on some more stuff.  Actually I want to start my lace shawl but have to wait for the Knitpro needles that I ordered.  Hopefully, should be here tomorrow so I can begin work on it this weekend...I'll keep you in the loop.

For more WIP's see Tami's Amis WIP Wednesday.  Byee!!


  1. That is a lovely purple. It is always nice to relax with a stress free project at the end of the day, isn't it?

  2. I shall have to have a look at that Hayfield Aran; I usually use Stylecraft Aran, but that purple you've got is lovely :-)

  3. I can't wait to see the poncho finished! I love the color you're using. Purple is one of my favorite colors, too. :)

  4. I really like the Hayfield aran - it steam blocks beautifully too, so you should be good ;)

  5. Cool, thanks I'm nearly finished and then I'll have something to show for FO Friday!
