Wednesday WIPs - 25.03.2015

It has been another busy week here at Rose Manor and, while not all projects have been worked on (it's still too warm for at least one of my projects), progress has been made on most of them.

Here are the WIPs that I have worked on this week.

Shy Butterfly Baby Jacket in 8 ply
I finished the first sleeve and started the second. It shouldn't be too long now before I have this finished.

Woollen Baby Blanket - motifs from Ellen Gormley's book
 Almost finished the penultimate row of octagons on this one.

Knitted Scarf
This one is getting close to being finished. Just another couple of repeats of the pattern and it will be as long as I am tall (which is how I measure scarfs).

This is another item that I have almost finish. I actually ran out of the grey I was using so the ears are a slightly different shade, and I was sure I had made the nose but I can't find it now so I will have to make another one. I think I will have this finished by next week.

Moogly CAL Square # 6
I decided that I should do more 2 colour squares because my first square was done in 2 colours.

Trauma Teddy # 11 for 2015
We're still working out whether it's going to be easier to sew tags on these while they're flat compared to when they have been made up. I'm sure I will get to finish some soon.

My Tablet Carry Bag
Since we're getting new tablets soon (they're currently on lay-by) we thought we would need a better way to carry them around so we each decided to make something that would be quite robust with room for more than just the tablet. I think this one will be big enough to take my music books and some other paraphernalia.

Sue has decided not to join the pieces of her bag until after she has cross-stitched over the rest of it first.

Half of Sue's Tablet Bag
Sue has also made more progress than me because she has been spending all her time on this and not working on all her other projects.

That's it from us for this week. I will have something to show on Friday so be sure to check back then. In the meantime, check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.
