WIP Tuesday!

I'm writing this post a day early because I'm not going to have time tomorrow, what with getting married and everything ;-) I will do a wedding photos post at some point, I definitely want to show off my wedding shawl and talk about the wonderful day we're hopefully going to have!

I'm back down to two WIP's at the moment, one knitting and one crochet. My knitting one is my Framlingham and it's sooo close to being finished. In fact I did finish it, tried it on and decided I wanted a bit more length. Mr Soaring Sheep reminded me that I had a ball of yarn remaining so I frogged back the garter stitch hem, picked up the stitches and carried on knitting. I'm hoping to get it finished by the end of the week so I can wear it on holiday. Yeah, so much for it being my holiday knitting, it's such a lovely pattern I couldn't wait!


The top safety pin was about an inch from the frogged edge and I've left it there so I can see how much extra length I've added. The bottom pin is marking which row I'm on in the pattern repeat. I like safety pins for marking stitches, I don't know why!

My crochet project is my granny stripe blanket. My eldest boy has decided that the finished blanket will be his so whenever he sees me working on it he starts nagging me to work faster. Bossy child, can't think where he gets that from!


I've got to do 6 pattern repeats for it to be long enough and I've done 1.3 so far. I've not worked on it much recently as I've been trying to get my Framlingham done. I also crocheted a soaker for Ava to wear at the wedding using some stash yarn so I'll post some photos of that at some point too :-)


The colours of the yarns are so happy, I probably wouldn't have chosen all of them but I really like how they work together. Especially the first few from the red to the purple they just zing for me :-)


Well tomorrow is going to be busy for us. The wedding is in the morning and then we're going to have a picnic providing it's not raining. Fingers crossed for good weather and a lovely day :-)


  1. Hope you have a fabulous day tomorrow! Can't wait to hear all about it.

  2. Happy Wedding Day! I hope everything goes wonderfully and you enjoy your day! xx
