WIP Wednesday

I'm working away on my son's blanket this week. I've got 3 squares left to make and then it's just finishing the joining, some ends and the border. So close!

I love how this blanket is shaping up. Although I'm not sure how I'm going to photograph it when it's finally finished lol

I'm still working on my Alec sweater too. I'm at the mindless stockinette section so it's just perfect for working on in the evenings in front of a dvd

Two fairly simple projects but they make me smile when I'm working on them. I'm having lots of fun lol.

Hop over to Nicole, Tami and Ginny for more posts about what other crafters are up to :-)

I'll be back on Friday to show off a super scrappy sweater using hand dyed yarn left overs and barber pole striping. It is a riot of colour lol

  3. I love how little random squares become a blanket! Have fun sewing those squares together. That is the only part I dread! I can't wait to see a picture of your hand dyed yarn sweater. I'm starting to get interested in dying yarn.

  12. It's good to have variety to keep boredom from setting in. But then I take it too far by having TOO much variety on hand. LOL!
