This week has seen a bit of rebellion against my own rules. I’m not sure whether it was brought on by an overindulgence in chocolate, a bank holiday or the fact I’m at home whilst the children are at school/preschool because my school has different term dates. Anyway, whatever the reason, this week there are THREE WIPs!
The first is a simple stash buster, an Attic 24 cosy stripe blanket for my son using the leftover yarn from my husband’s gigantic granny square blanket. This is a project that will be slower paced, with the aim of it being completed before their boys’ camping trip in the Summer holidays. It’s a lovely, simple pattern for when I’m watching TV etc. I’m 8 rows in already, so I’ve got a good start.
The next project is an experiment, which may or may not ever be completed. I wanted to make some baskets for my bedroom, and this chunky cream chenille sparkle yarn which I bought from Aldi in the autumn seemed perfect. It’s quite rough, and not something I’d like a blanket made from. However, I thought it would make lovely chunky baskets. I am making up the pattern, so far the base is a sunburst granny square which I’m just going around in treble crochet until it’s the right size. It’s another no rush project, but it’ll work on it when I’m in the mood for thinking and calculating!
The final project is a ‘need to get finished’ one. I started a mermaid tail for my niece but realised I didn’t have enough yarn and couldn’t get more to match. I bit the bullet and bought 3 x 200g balls of James C Brett marble chunky in these gorgeous blues, greens and purples. It’s to be completed by June, but it’s my priority at the moment so will hopefully be completed fairly quickly!
After that exhausting round up, I’m wondering whether three WIPs is pushing the boundaries a little!
