WIP Wednesday 18-04-2012

Having a holiday from college has really enabled me to get some work done on my WIPs (although I probably should be working on the project I've been given, but I still have a couple of days). Every project has seen some progress so here they all are.

Since this month's theme over at  Geeky Heather's blog is April Amazons I'll start with my biggest project and work down.

Rose Clan Dress Tartan
This is definitely the largest project I'm working on at the moment. It measures approximately 2 metres square and is folded in half to fit it into frame. You may notice that it isn't any bigger than it was last week but it isn't going to get any bigger, just thicker as I weave in all the chains.

Daffodil Teacloth - segment 4
This may not look very big but it is the 4th segment of 5, and done in #40 cotton, so there's a lot of work still to be done. I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of October so I can enter it into the local show.

Squares in Squares Blanket - designed by me
Round 3 didn't go quite as easily as I would have liked but it's still square so it's not too bad. I don't think round 4 will be any easier but we will see what happens.

Sleeve 2 of Hoodie - Dawg by Drew Emborsky
I'm still managing to find a little time to work on this. It's not going to be finished on time for this winter but I wasn't planning on wearing it just yet anyway as this is another item I'm planning to enter into the local show.

Crochenit Cot Blanket
I managed to do a few more rows on this while watching people walk past my stall on Saturday. It would be nice if they would stop and buy something, although that would mean more work for me.

Tommy Turtle's Shell
Once I've crocheted this together and stitched it onto Tommy's back he won't be naked any more.

Slanted Scarf
Plenty of wool left yet so will keep going until I run out.

Toddler's Jacket - Zoom by Ellen Gormley
The first sleeve is progressing well.

Men's Afghan Stitch Gloves - left palm
All the fingers done now but I forgot to leave a tail for sewing up on the first couple. I'm sure I'll figure something out by the time I've finished the back.

I know I could have probably finished some of these by now if I wasn't working on so many at once, but that would be no fun at all, and there are so many other projects that I'm itching to get started on as well. I will just have to show a bit of self control and not start them until I've finished some of these.

As usual, check out Tami's Amis, Ambassador Crochet, Ginny's Yarn Along and Nicole's "Keep Calm, Craft On" for more crafting goodness.



  1. I'm always amazed at how many projects you work on at a time :-) Happy knitting

  2. Aha! Now I understand the tartan!! I was wondering how it was a tartan when it was just stripes. =)

    LOVE the colors for Tommy turtle's shell. I hope he's not getting cold!

  3. I love the zoom jacket...i have never tried tunisian (yet!) but have faved it on my ravelry!

  4. you do stay busy! I'm that way too on having so many projects going at once. The problem doing it that way is that it takes so long to even get one done.

  5. That 'squares in squares ' design looks interesting..........I also have far too many projects on the go at once, but than there's never a chance of getting bored, love the pretty pastel stripes on the cot blanket.

  6. Lots of fun and interesting projects in progress at your place.
    Loving the tartan rug and the thread crochet - looks like you have a nice even tension in all the different weights.
    Enjoy your projects.

  7. So many projects! That little toddler jacket is so sweet! I followed you over from KCCO and here is my project this week: My project this week:
