WIP Wednesday 13.02.2013

It has been another busy week here at Rose Manor and most of that business involved crochet. I even started another new project (as if I didn't already have enough). Here is the state of my WIPs this week.

Hoodie for me - Dawg by Drew Emborsky ( The Crochet Dude)
 Just need to sew up the hood, do the bands and sew in the loose ends and this will be finished.

Crochenit Cot Blanket
 Still a bit more to do on this before I start on the border.

Rose Dress Tartan Rug
 Another 8 chains to thread through, ends to sew in and then a dc (US sc) border to finish. Could be done in 2 weeks but the sewing in of ends could stretch that to 3.

Woollen Baby Blanket using square 51 from the "99 Granny Squares book
 This is the new project that I started during crochet class on Friday morning. I just needed something to do while my student was catching up with instructions.

Box Stitch Baby Blanket
 I just have 1 side to do then sew in the ends. This should be an FO for next Friday.

AustralianaV2 designed by me
 The first object is taking shape. It is the Parliament House flag pole. This will be a familiar sight to anybody that's been to Canberra. If you're wondering what happened to the Kangaroo and Emu, they're at the other end of the runner.

Toddler's Jacket - Zoom by Ellen Gormley (GoCrochet)
 A few more rows have been added to the first sleeve although I did have a small problem with this on the weekend. The cable on my hook broke. Fortunately I had a spare with me at the time.

Graduation Owl
 All the pieces are done the bits just need to be sewn together and, where appropriate, stuffed. This should also be a finished object next week.

Alien Guy
His body is pretty much done and I've started on his arms (this guy aint gonna be armless). I think he is going to be quite large.

That's it from me for this week, I won't be participating in FO Friday as I don't expect to have anything finished and Sue and I are going down to Melbourne Friday afternoon so I won't be near enough to my computer to be able to post anyway. I'm not sure that I will be able to post next week either so I may not be showing off any finished objects until the 1st of March.

As usual, checkout the links in the sidebar to see what everyone else has been making.
