WIP Wednesday-31st January

This week has been one of my least productive for ages, I’ve only worked on one project -the Bertie baby blanket, and only done two more pattern repeats (8 colour bands). I have, however, sewn in all of the ends so far and measured the blanket to estimate how many more rows I’ll need to work. 

Now that I’ve done a little bit more, I can confirm that it’s going to be a very cosy baby blanket as it warms my legs up whilst I’m working on it! Based on my yarn estimates, I’m going to need some more white yarn as the repeated rows use up quite a lot.

I’m planning on making more progress with this in the next week, I just need to sit down and focus on it and not be so distracted by things like TV, Instagram etc.

What are you working on this week? How’s it going? Are you working on lots of little projects, or one larger one? Let me know, on here or on Instagram.

  1. That looks beautiful and like it’s coming along well. I am not doing needlework right now, but am doing a lot of housecleaning, recycling, etc.–clearing the decks. Maybe then I’ll be in the mood for needlework!

      1. I get rather stuck-feeling sometimes in winter, since the place we live has an actual winter. The recycling etc. gets pretty backed up since we have to take it to the dump ourselves, and sometimes the roads seem too icy and scary to go on for weeks a ta time. That is my excuse anyhow, and I’m not even the driver!

      2. Oh no! We are lucky to have only very mild winters, although my 3 year old is obsessed with snow in stories but had hardly seen any in her lifetime and she is desperate for us to have some!

      3. Oh, snow is great but then again I don’t have to drive in it. It can be hard if people are not used to it. I grew up in NJ and later lived in Vermont and there was always snow in winter. It’s only been the bad global warming stuff that messed it up the last while. Here near Woodstock NY there are still actual seasons, which I love.

      4. We have quite nicely defined seasons, and get some very frosty nights, but no real snow 😕 our cold spells are short lived, although we definitely know it’s winter lol

  2. You have made nice progress with that blanket! So, I think I have mentioned this huge rug that I am making and that I was afraid to run out of yarn before the end. It will indeed happen. I have 5 and a half skiens left and this rug was 214 cm in diameter and almost 11 kg-s, when I measured it today. So, I hope that with the last 5 skiens of cloth yarn I will manage to finish it at a nice spot without frogging or leftovers. For that I decided to skip a row but I might regret it later…decisions…

  3. I’ve been trying to knit a scarf for so long it’s beginning to feel like Groundhog Day! I bought some self striping wool for socks, my partner said they weren’t thick enough, so I thought it would make a pretty scarf, but every pattern I try doesn’t show off the pattern to it’s full extent. I think I’ll just stick to basic rib and be done with it!

  4. This is so beautiful, something about a baby yellow colour (not the mad bright lol!) that’s so soothing. – I have a blanket to finish but can’t as love crochet forget two of my balls of white so i am yet still waiting for them. Not happy! Got some little projects though to do.

  5. I have so much yarn put away that I haven’t worked on yet. I prefer crochet because you only need a hook, not two needles to work with. And your project looks very nice. Take care.

  6. I just love your blanket! So beautiful and perfect for a little one. I am stitching on quite a large project; Passione Ricamo’s 20th anniversary SAL that was started in 2014. I have been working on it for about a month now and am just about ready to switch to something else. We shall see 😉
