The week of the wips!

So It is wip Wednesday, and here is my current wip:

Image

Its a butterfly scarf for Miss 9, you can find the pattern here: on ravelry . I am planning on making a matching hat and wrist warmers as well.

However, at the beginning of the week, I decided to try and get through a good portion of my wips and ufo’s, as they no longer fit in my craft cupboard anymore and are now cluttering up my clothes cupboard.

So wips finished so far this week are:

Number one, Queen sized blanket for hubby for our fourth wedding anniversary. I first tried making him a blanket in time for our wedding, but ended up frogging it. This is the fourth time and I have tried making a blanket for our bed, so I find it quite fitting that the one I finally finish is ready in time for our fourth anniversary!

Image

you can find the pattern here: on ravelry It is a shawl pattern that calls for 4 ply yarn and a 3.25 mm hook, however I used 8 ply, and a 5.5 mm hook to make it bed sized.

 

Number two: A charity blanket that I started forever ago, but is now finished and ready to be sent off.

Image

No pattern, I just alternated traditional granny squares with solid granny squares, a few rows of granny stitch for the bulk of the border, and a simple shell edging.

number 3: A c2c scarf for charity

Image

again no pattern, I just winged it, but I believe Mikey from the crochet crowd has a youtube tutorial 🙂

Number 4, A cowl for myself

Image

It is 10 3 row granny squares joined in a loop, and then 8 rounds of granny square stitch to one side of them.

And lastly some scrap busting squares.

Image

Some of these were from this years ravellenic games, I just hadn’t woven in the ends yet.

And that’s it so far for this week, hoping to get some more wips dusted by the end of the week, and hoping to be able to get back to my blogging, now that this hectic full on year is finally starting to slow down a little.

Happy crafting, and I’ll leave you with a few pics of projects I have done earlier in the year 🙂

Witch blanket for one of my dear friends, pattern was a custom job from Sara over at Mommas jam pack crochet word charts (graphghans without counting squares yay!)

And a whole bunch of bunnies for Easter:

WIP wednesday

WIP Wednesday

I am currently working on and nearly finished my super secret thingy for my true blood swapee. Also I have started work on a crocheted Christmas tree skirt in some sparkly yarn. SO far so good, but we will see how it shapes up!

 

I have about a million projects that I want to start, including a couple of fusion blankets. I may have to drag out the sewing machine and have a bash at it. BUT first I have to get the Christmas presents finalized and made! 

WIP Wednesday

I am still getting through the blocks on my water lilly blanket. Am sewing up the second last round at the moment.

I am also still working on John’s (mr 1) choo choo rug for Christmas

Image

And My blanket that never ends is currently on time out as I am so sick of  knitting those little squares!

Image

Mostly at the moment I am thinking about my Christmas list, and planning projects.

At the moment it looks like this:

Mum: Multnomah shawl, status: done

Dad A: Slouchy hat. status: finished knitting, need to sew in the ends.

Sister: Monster hat status: still trying to figure out how to do it without a pattern

Son: Choo choo rug status: about 40% finished

Daughter: Picnic set status: hoping to start on it today.

Husband: I have no idea status: lost in space

Dad B: I have no idea status: lost in space Preserves maybe?

Aunty: I have no idea status: lost in space

Nan: Some kind of shawl maybe? Status: still thinking

Niece: Princess Doll status: finished

Nephew 1: Hipster Doll status: finished

Nephew 2: I have no idea status: lost in space

An probably preserves for close friends. We make chilli Jam in the summer every year, Its so nice with Christmas lunch and we get requests for it every year.

And I am sorry I did not get around to Meat free monday this week, I was so busy spring cleaning, we just had re heats, but last night we had these http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/1028/chickpea+and+lentil+patties

Chick pea and lentil patties and they were divine! I recommend adding some salt though 🙂
