December is so full of events that WIPs have taken a back seat, or had very slow progress. Nativities, discos, Christmas fairs, you name it, it’s on my calendar! (Some days have more than one!) Anyway, I’ve still found a few minutes here and there, in between writing cards and wrapping presents.
My first (and main) WIP is a pair of slippers which make up the last part of a quite large order. They are child sized so don’t take too long to make, and the scales are made of half treble crochet rather than treble so they are a bit quicker than adult ones on that front too. I have some lovely dark wood buttons to go on these, I think they will suit the colour of the yarn beautifully.
The next photo is kind of a cheat, but it has been a WIP twice (and frogged twice!) I want to make myself an infinity scarf and I just haven’t found the right pattern. Also I have a ‘talent’ for being able to mess up even the simplest lace pattern, and I wanted some lace to make it ‘breathable’. (Is that the right word? I just want it to have holes in that look like they are meant to be there and make some kind of pretty pattern.) Hopefully I will come across an idiot proof pattern and get on with it soon.
Anyway, that’s the sum of my WIPs this week, my son has noticed that his blanket is still in a bag under my bed so I suspect that I may get that out again once the slippers are finished. What are you working on? Please share!
