Wednesday WIPs - 29.01.2014

Well, it's Wednesday again, but this isn't an ordinary Wednesday, it's kinda special. I got a new trombone stand from Sue, a card from church, a cake for afternoon tea (which I shared with those at craft'n'cuppa) and 1000 points on my membership card when we went to the club for dinner. If you haven't figured it out yet, it's my birthday. If you want to know how old I am, I'm 14 (when counting ages I only count to 21 and then start again), you just need to know how many times I've been 14 and figure it out from there :).

Anyhow, Wednesday is also the day for showing off WIPs, so here they are.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
I managed to find a relatively cool period to make a bit of progress on this. Just one more corner to turn then I'm on the home straight.

Box Stitch Baby Blanket
Another change of colour and getting closer to the finish line.

Pineapple Doily
Three pineapples complete and 5 more to go. I actually made a mistake in round 8 and had to rip back a few rows. That's what I get for not reading the pattern properly.

Knooked Beanie
I've decided that I've done enough ribbing on this beanie and have started on the stocking stitch.

AustralianaV2 - designed by me
A few more rows have been added to this.

Baby's Jacket, Pants and Hat Set
 I am making progress on this one also.

Tunisian Lace Wrap
One repeat of the pattern has been completed. This is the item that I take with me when I'm expecting to be sitting in a waiting room. I think I should have had it earlier today when I went to take some paperwork to Centrelink for Sue.

The three pieces are now complete, stitched together and the body stuffed. Now I need to pick up the stitches and start working on the tail.

Amigurumi Robot
Yes, I started a new project this week. It's not like I don't have enough projects on the go at the moment but I like to get replacements for the toys that I've sold done as soon as possible.

I'm still debating whether of not to start another blanket. Maybe I'll start one when crochet class resumes and have it as my go-to project for that. I'll have to wait and see who turns up for class and see what they want to learn. I only have about five blankets that I want to get started on. Let's see, there's the Hungarian stitch blanket, Tunisian sampler blanket (I've got the 101 Tunisian Stitches book to work through, Crochenit (Double Ended Tunisian) Sampler blanket (I've got the 101 Stitches book for that also), a butterfly and roses baby blanket (Tunisian Intarsia), and a blanket made using the motifs from Ellen Gormley's book. Which one do I start first? I also have to think about how much time I'm going to be spending studying as I plan to get back into that this year.

Ah well, lots to think about. In the meantime, check out the links in the sidebar to see what everyone else has been making.



  1. You've got so many lovely projects on the go. The fish looks rather cute :)

  2. It´s nice to see that I´m not the only one with lots of WIP´s :) That pineapple doily looks really nice! Have a nice evening :)
