WIP Wednesday 14/03/12


Good morning everyone.
It's WIP Wednesday :-)

I haven't made anymore progress on my african flower blanket
so no pictures this week.

I have made progress on my Granny Blanket.
It's really easy to do with your mind switched off
so I have found myself adding a row or two each day.
I must admit I'm going to miss it when I've finished.
I would make another one as they are fun to make.


I wish would could get some sunlight so I could take better pictures but no such luck.
As per usual it's a grey day outside!

The coloured yarn in the middle is some yarn that I got
for free from a magazine.
I only had a small amount but Little Red loved the colours.
I decided to make it a feature and once there wasn't
enough colour left I just used white.
I'm unsure how large I'm going to make it.
I don't think I'll make it much bigger as it's for Little Red.
I don't want it to weigh too much.
I am really liking how it turned out.

I am hopefully make a spoon mug cozy for my physio.
She is giving up some of her dinner to get me a walking stick.
I wanted to give her a little something to say thank you.
I am possibly going to look into a spoon set of 
things for people who suffer from diseases
that people can't see but it affects your
stamina etc.
I know there is already a spoon campaign on the go
but I want to do my bit to spread the word.

As soon as the yarn arrives I need to make my sons hat.
It didn't turn up yesterday so hopefully it will arrive today.

I hope you are all having a good Wednesday and I hope
you will visit the other wonderful people showing
you what they are making.

  5. Granny crochet rules :-), I love "simple" patterns that give a great result like this one.
