Wednesday WIPs - 03.12.2014

I have had another slack week this week with a little bit of progress on some of my projects, quite a lot of progress on one project and no progress on others. Here are the WIPs that I have worked on this week.

Woollen Baby Blanket - motifs from Ellen Gormley's book
I managed to sew one octagon in place and start on the next before my fellow tutor and I decided to call and end to class on Friday since we were the only ones there. There didn't seem to be any point in holding a class when there weren't any students.

Boys Rugby Jumper
I managed to start the first sleeve this week but it has been a bit too warm to work on this sort of thing.

Knitted Scarf
This is one of the projects I took with me to Sydney over the weekend and I did get to work on it while waiting in the hotel and at the airport. I still didn't manage a full repeat of the pattern.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
 I worked on this one while waiting for the dentist. We got there very early so I had plenty of time.

We went to Sydney to see "Wicked" and thoroughly enjoyed it but I ran into trouble at the airport on the way home. A pair of scissors that had been passed through security at least three times caught the attention of the guy on the x-ray machine and they decided that I couldn't take them on board with me this time. Ah well, they were only a cheap pair anyway, and I probably shouldn't have scissors with me on the plane.

I will have something to show on Friday so check back then to see if I remembered to post. In the meantime, check out the links in the sidebar to see what others have been up to.



  1. Too bad about the's weird how some things go through and then somewhere else they don't.....and Wicked is awesome...

  2. I love the Tunisian blanket, it is very colorful. :)

  3. What a nuisance about the scissors. You can also substitute nail clippers now and the dental floss containers with their little hook to slice the floss are also great pseudo thread cutters for air travel.
