The first WIP Wednesday of 2017! It’s been quite a productive week, with two crochet projects on the go, one of which hasn’t seen the light of day since September.
The first (and main) project is the Bluebird’s Granny CAL. Part 1 is complete now, and part 2 is coming along. When I saw it needed 11 squares the same I decided to set up a production line system. Once I’d made 2 whole squares I made the other 9 middles and managed round 2 of several of them. The colours aren’t to everyone’s taste but Mr C chose them! I’ve used aran yarn and part 1 is about 6ft long already. I suspect his request for a large blanket may be granted!
The second project is my ‘car crochet’ project. It’s been in the dark for months as I took my Christmas craft projects in the car to get them all done. This is my daughter’s blanket, a chevron design using Ice Yarns magic lights. It’s perfect for the car as it’s so repetitive, and the yarn is self striping so there are no colour changes. I’ve added a couple more inches to it since Christmas when we’ve been out in the car visiting relatives. I need to crack on with it, otherwise it will need a very wide border to be large enough for my little girl, who is growing faster than the blanket.
What are you working on this week?
