WIP Wednesday-27th June

Its sweltering here, but gloriously sunny. It does mean that it’s very warm even at night, so crocheting on a larger project like the Coastal Crochet CAL has to be done in small chunks. We’ve also spent a lot of time watering the allotment which has cut into my craft time too (hopefully it’ll be worth it!)

I have managed to complete a few rows of the blanket despite the heat, and when I took the photo I was surprised at just how large the blanket has got.

I’ve also managed to overcome the hurdle of casting on the second sock. Because it is now officially ‘on the needles’ I’m hopeful that second sock syndrome won’t sink in! I’m about halfway through the ribbing on the cuff now. I’m planning to take it to a football tournament on Saturday, but whether I will work on it there is a different matter entirely!

In celebration of the light evenings I decided to take all of my photos on the lawn, I thought it made a nice change of background!

I hope you’ve still managed to craft in the heat, I’m trying to make the most of the nice weather whilst not getting burned. It’s a challenge when you have fair skin.

What are you working on this week? Feel free to share here or tag me on Instagram.

  1. I love your blanket more and more each time I see it. I especially love those little pink shells, It is coming along beautifully! Love the colors in your sock and hope it goes pretty fast for you. The heat is supposed to hit us today and for the next 10 days. I plan on staying inside in the air conditioning as much as possible and crafting :). Stay cool πŸ™‚

  2. I concur – sweltering indeedly doodly! And what’s more …. it’s no longer ‘wonderful’. I need a few days of coolness. However the weather person said it’s going to get hotter. (I’m thinking of taking a contract out on that weather person.)
    MY blanket is really coming on. I’m looking forward to the day when you tell me it’s finished. πŸ˜€ cause that’s the day I dress up in my black trousers, stripey top, and Robin (batman and robin) mask, carrying my swag bag, and come and steal the blanket while you’re at the allotment! πŸ˜€
    Did I say that out loud?
    Darn!!! Have to make a new plan now. tsk tsk

    1. I’m hoping it’s not getting hotter, we have a football tournament on Saturday and spending 5 hours in the sun is not my idea of fun!
      Ps am working on blanket security systems, hubby has one of those locks that makes an ear pitching screech if you tamper with it. πŸ˜‰ x

  3. Kudos to you for working on a blanket while it’s hot 😍 It is gorgeous so I can see how it’s hard to stay away!
    I just work on little things that won’t cover too much of me – like Granny Squares for a sweater or a sleeve for said sweater 😁

  4. My blanket has been well and truly set aside recently, it’s just too hot for cheap acrylic! I’m still beavering away at my Tunisian top though; cotton isn’t so bad to work with and I’m soooo close to the finish line.
