Wednesday WIPs - 25.05.2016

It has been a busy few weeks for me, so much so that I forgot to take photos last week. I will get back into a regular routine soon and I do have something to show today so here are my WIPs for the last couple of weeks.

Story Time Blanket
I have made good progress on this the last two weeks.

Moogly CAL 2016 Block 1
I finally got started on this year's Moogly CAL. I decided to pick colours from my stash that closely resembled the designers colours. I'm sure it will make for a colourful blanket. I will also be trying to get one block done each week so that I can catch up before the end of the year.

Tunisian Short Rows Scarf
This has been my main goto project the last couple of weeks, mainly due to the mindless repartition. I can work on this without thinking about it too much.

That's it for the WIPs. Be sure to check back on Friday to see what I have finished. In the meantime, check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.

Friday FOs - 13.05.2016

We have almost finished our move. There is still a little cleanup to be done at the old place and a few items to be relocated but most of the hard work has been done. During this busy time I did manage to get something finished, and here it is.

Moogly CAL 2015 Blanket
Now that I have finished this one I can get started on this year's blanket. I'm already 9 blocks behind so I have a bit of catching up to do.

As usual, be sure to check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have made.

Wednesday WIPs - 04.05.2016

Happy Star Wars Day everyone, I hope you had/are having a good one.

I have only worked on four of my projects this week and only have two to show you today. You will get to see the other two when I next do an FO Friday post. Here are my WIPs for this week.

Tunisian Short Rows Scarf (Geo by Kim Guzman)
I frogged my first effort due to too many errors and it wasn't looking particularly good. I have gone up a couple of hook sizes and been a little more careful to make sure I'm getting the correct stitch, especially the first one.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
 A short period in a waiting room so I got this one out and got to another change of colour. Not a lot of progress but progress none the less.

As I intimated at the start of this post, there will be no FO Friday post this week or WIP Wednesday post next week due to us moving. I don't know when I will resume posting but it shouldn't take long to get settled.

Until my next post just keep checking the links in the sidebar to see what other people are working on.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 29.04.2016

I don't think anybody will be surprised by what I have managed to finish this week, so here it is.

Trauma Teddy #11
I'm not sure about using a self striping yarn like this but it was given to for making bears so that's what I'm going to use it for.

That's it from me for this week. Be sure to check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have made.

Wednesday WIPs - 27.04.2016

I haven't worked on as many of my projects as I would have liked to but the ones I have worked on have seen good progress. Here are some of the projects that I have worked on this week.

Rose Pixel Blanket - square 1
I think I need to investigate this technique a bit more to see if there is a way to carry the yarn from one row to the next and reduce the number of ends. I'm not looking forward to sewing in all of them.

Tunisian Crochet Short Rows Scarf
With all the projects that I have on the go I still went and started another. I wanted another Tunisian item to put into the show later this year since that is one category that I have a good chance of winning.

Moogly CAL Blanket 2015
I started putting last year's Moogly CAL Blanket together. I will be starting this year's CAL shortly, even though I am already 8 blocks behind.

I also worked on the Story Time Blanket (finished one column and started the next) and the white baby blanket (not that you would be able to tell) but didn't take photos of them because I kinda forgot about them until I went to write this post.

Hoepfully, I will get something finished for Friday so do come back and check. In the meantime, check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.

Friday FOs - 22.04.2016

I have been quite productive this week, although Wednesday's post might not have shown it. Here are the items that I have finished this week.

Trauma Teddy #9 for 2016
Trauma Teddy #10 for 2016
Two more Trauma Teddies finished.


Tunisian Bamboo Stitch Beanie
This Beanie can be worn either as a slouch hat or, with the cuff rolled up, as a beanie so is quite versatile. It is my first attempt at Bamboo Stitch and I'm not sure if I got it right or not, but it looks OK to me. It is a bit small for me so I couldn't really model it.

That's it from me for this week. Be sure to check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have made.
