WIP Wednesday

Hi everyone, I've got a bit of a headache at the moment so this is just going to be a quick post. As you can see I've got 3 projects on the go at the moment

The little crochet circles at the top are going to be for a cushion. I've made 25 of them now although I still haven't sewn any ends in. That's going to take me a while I think! I'm aiming for 64 to make an 8x8 arrangement for the front of the cushion. The back will be a solid granny square. I'm using this free pattern for the circles and edging.

The sock for my husband I blogged about yesterday and it hasn't really grown much since then. I'm hoping to get the first sock finished by this time next week. It's a nice simple pattern to work on.

The red project on the left is another new one. It's a shawl for my Mum. The yarn is left over from my Morticia MKAL that I did in the Autumn last year. I only used about 50g of the skein (Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace in the Cherry colourway) and as I didn't want another shawl the same colour I asked my Mum if she'd like one. She chose the Out of Darkness pattern which is also by Booknits. I think I'll make it without the picot edging this time though as it's so fiddly and time consuming! I'm enjoying having another lace shawl on the needles again although I'm not sure if I'll be feeling the same way when I'm closer to the end and attaching hundreds of beads lol.

For other crafting posts visit WIP Wednesday and Yarn Along :-) I'll be back on Friday with some lace socks to show you :-)
