WIP Wednesday 02.01.2013

Well, it's the first Wednesday of the year and I have made some progress on some of my major projects this week.

Rose Clan Dress Tartan Rug
 If I keep spending a couple of hours each week on this I should have it finished in a couple of months.

Hoodie - Dawg by Drew Emborsly (The Crochet Dude)
 I got most of it sewn together and ready for the hood and the cuffs. I still need to sew the pocket on. Just for interests sake I decided to try it on and found that the body is just about perfect but I have been a little generous in the sleeves. The sleeve are a little long even without the cuffs. I suppose that's one reason I ran out of wool. I did adjust the pattern because it was coming out too small for me but it looks like I may have over done it.

Box Stitch Baby Blanket.
As I was photographing this I noticed that the yarn I'm using now isn't the same dye lot as the first couple of balls. I don't think it will make a big difference to the finished article but I probably won't show this one.

Toddler's Jacket - Zoom by Ellen Gormley (GoCrochet)
A few more rows and it will be ready for the edge and then the sleeves.

That's it from me for this week. I will try to pick up where I left off and work on the other 2 projects before going back to any of these. I may even start a couple of other projects now that I'm not restricted by last year's resolution.

Check out the links in the sidebar if you want to see what everyone else has been making and come back on Friday to see what projects Sue and I have finished this week.
