WIP Wednesday-10th May

Welcome to another WIP Wednesday, today’s is a bit special to me as it’s a birthday edition!

News on the WIP front is a bit limited, only 2 more rows added to the cosy stripe blanket. That is mainly because I finished the mermaid blanket and the baskets (including typing the pattern!)

Mr C did extremely well on the birthday present front (with a little guidance!) and bought me the knitpro interchangeable needle set.

This obviously means a knitting project is in the pipeline. (By that I mean once Mr C is awake and ready for work I’m going to raid the yarn stash in my wardrobe and cast on straight away!) I can’t wait to try them out.

My wonderful friends also got me a Wool Warehouse voucher which I am very eager to spend! I will look for a project then buy the yarn specifically for making it so I don’t waste it. I’m thinking at least one pair of socks and then some lovely yarn to make my daughter a cardigan.

What are you working on this week? What’s the best crafty gift you’ve ever been given?

Have a lovely week, and as always tag me here or on Instagram so I can take a peek at what you’re working on!

  1. A lovely post – to answer your question – the best crafty present I was ever given would be a crocheted blanket I was given by a family friend as a newborn baby and now my children have it πŸ™‚

    1. That’s lovely, gifts that can be passed down are very precious. I have my mum and her twin sister’s christening blanket and used it at both of my children’s christenings too. I daren’t use it for anything else in case it gets ruined!

      1. I know that feeling … I recently found out that an old soft toy horse that I was given as a child (from my grandparents’ visit to Austria in the 80s) – was a collectors item. I had given it to my own children … although perhaps there is nothing sadder than an unplayed with teddy bear πŸ™‚

  3. My grandma gave me my first set of crochet hooks when I was 16. I still have the set with the tag she wrote on. I have a lot of other hooks and sets, but that one is special to me.

  6. Happy Birthday! I have the same set of needles and they are my absolute favorites to knit with. Mr. C is a wise birthday gift shopper.
