WIP Wednesday - Going Green

I seem to be on a bit of a mint green theme today. Completely by accident, but this green yarn was the next one out of the bag to make some solid granny squares with


Once this square is finished I will have 25% of my squares finished for my son's blanket. It's going to be a big single bed sized one, 140 squares in total plus some sort of border. This square is my 35th :-)

I've got 17 colours to do, with approximately 8 squares per colour. At the moment I'm just picking up a new yarn every time I feel like a change. Later I'll start counting properly.

The other project I've been working on this week is my second Waihi sock. I had to frog an inch of it yesterday because some how I'd managed to create an extra stitch in the stockinette section! Oh the shame....! However, I'm now caught up and starting to work the heel flap


The weather has got cooler here in the UK so I'm enjoying wearing my hand knitted socks again. I'm looking forward to having this pretty pair finished :-) I found out yesterday that I have rather a lot of sock yarns in my stash so I'd better knit quickly!

For other WIP Wednesday posts hop over to Tami's Amis in a bit (the post isn't up yet). Thanks for dropping by :-)

    1. Thank you :-) The picture just shows the back, the front has the same pattern with two cables on either side, really pretty :)

  5. Love these greens you're into. Great addition to your projects.

  6. Another one knitting socks! Really should give them a go.

  7. I love the simplicity of your blanket squares. They will give it a great overall quilt-look when you get it all together. Can't wait to see!

  8. Lovley color for the socks.

    Here's my WIP:
