Wednesday WIPs - 17.12.2014

I have had another week where I haven't done as much as I would have liked, but I did more than last week. Here are all the projects that I have worked on this week (other than my weekly Trauma Teddy).

Baby's Jacket, Pants and Hat set
I managed to finish off the hat so now all I need to do is find some buttons and sew them on, stitch up the crotch of the pants and sew in all the ends.

Knitted Scarf
I managed to do a few more rows on this one.

Small Jug Cover
I started another jug cover.

There will be no Wednesday WIPs post next week due to the fact that we're going away for Christmas. Normal services will resume New Years Eve, for a couple of weeks at least.

Come back on Friday to check out the latest Trauma Teddy and check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.

Friday FOs - 12.12.2014

Well, I managed to finish this week's Trauma Teddy. It seems to take me longer and longer each week. I used to be able to make one of these in an afternoon but now it takes me three, I and don't seem to have the energy to work on much else.

Here is this week's FO.

Trauma Teddy #64
I'm going to a market tomorrow morning so I should be able to do some work while there.

Wednesday WIPs - 10.12.2014

I have slowed down quite a bit this week. The heat is really getting to me. I'm not sleeping well and then I'm too tired to do anything much in the afternoon. As a result of this I have only worked on one WIP and a Trauma Teddy (I kinda forced myself to get to work on it this afternoon), so, here is this week's WIP.

Woollen Baby Blanket - motifs from Ellen Gormley's book
The only reason this one got worked on is because it just happens to be the one I take with me to crochet class. Now that crochet class has finished for the year this may not see the light of day until class resumes in February.

I don't have a photo of the Trauma Teddy as I started it after taking the photo of the blanket but I should have it finished for Friday so you will see it then.

As usual, check out the links in the sidebar to see what others have been making.

Friday FOs - 05.12.2014

I almost didn't have anything to show you this week, but I managed to finish this week's Trauma Teddy just before 5pm, so, here it is.

Trauma Teddy #63
That's all I have managed to finish this week. Check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have manage to make.

Wednesday WIPs - 03.12.2014

I have had another slack week this week with a little bit of progress on some of my projects, quite a lot of progress on one project and no progress on others. Here are the WIPs that I have worked on this week.

Woollen Baby Blanket - motifs from Ellen Gormley's book
I managed to sew one octagon in place and start on the next before my fellow tutor and I decided to call and end to class on Friday since we were the only ones there. There didn't seem to be any point in holding a class when there weren't any students.

Boys Rugby Jumper
I managed to start the first sleeve this week but it has been a bit too warm to work on this sort of thing.

Knitted Scarf
This is one of the projects I took with me to Sydney over the weekend and I did get to work on it while waiting in the hotel and at the airport. I still didn't manage a full repeat of the pattern.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
 I worked on this one while waiting for the dentist. We got there very early so I had plenty of time.

We went to Sydney to see "Wicked" and thoroughly enjoyed it but I ran into trouble at the airport on the way home. A pair of scissors that had been passed through security at least three times caught the attention of the guy on the x-ray machine and they decided that I couldn't take them on board with me this time. Ah well, they were only a cheap pair anyway, and I probably shouldn't have scissors with me on the plane.

I will have something to show on Friday so check back then to see if I remembered to post. In the meantime, check out the links in the sidebar to see what others have been up to.

Friady FOs - 28.11.2014

Well, after forgetting to post my FOs last Friday I have managed to remember this week so you get two week's worth of FOs for the price of one.

Trauma Teddy #61

Trauma Teddy #62
Two week's of FOs means two Trauma Teddies.

Small Jug Cover

Small Jug Cover
And two Jug Covers.

We're flying up to Sydney for a couple of days so I expect there will be a bit of waiting room time, time for me to work on a couple of different items, but I don't expect to finish anything extra for next Friday.

As usual, check the links in the sidebar to see what others have been making.

Wednesday WIPs - 26.11.2014

Hello all,

It seems I have been getting quite forgetful lately. I took photos on Friday and then forgot to post them. I guess this means that you get a double dose this Friday. In the meantime, here are the WIPs that I have worked on this week.

Woollen Baby Blanket - motifs from Ellen Gormley's book
This blanket still has a bit of growing to do but it's getting there slowly.

Baby's Jacket, Pants and Hat set
I got up to the lace edging on the hat but didn't have enough yarn with me to finish it at the time. I think I might be able to finish this for next week.

Knitted Scarf
This scarf is still growing.

Koala
The body is finished, just need to make the ears, arms legs and nose and sew them into place along with the eyes. I was going to use safety eyes for this one but they are somewhere in the garage (I think).

That's it for the WIPs. I will try to remember to post my finishes on Friday but will make no promises. As usual, check out the links in the sidebar to see what others have been working on.

Richard.
