WIP Wednesday

I've got a small collection of WIP's to share with you this Wednesday. I've also got a sneaky crochet FO to show on Friday. My shawl is finished and blocked but awaiting some decent light to get some photos, I spent so long on it I want to do it justice. The crochet project is more portable and doesn't require a model.

As you can see it's a bit of a jumble! Let's have some individual photographs

I cast on the granny squares on a whim after seeing this blanket and also having an idea in my head. I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with them but I think if I edge them with cream and maybe join as I go I could end up with something quite nice? I shall have a think.

Mr Soaring Sheep's second sock is onto the ribbing now. I've done about 20 rows and I need to do 80 so still a way to go. It's a nice portable project though :)

Lastly there's this shawl which is for my Mum. It's the Travelling Woman pattern and I'm going to make the small size in this gorgeous fingering weight yarn from Dye for Yarn

I've also got plans to make a scarf for my Dad but I need to finish DH's sock first. The solid granny blanket and colourwork cardigan are on going but I haven't really made any progress on them so they aren't photographed. As always I'm linking in with Tami's WIP Wednesday post and now adding Ginny's Yarnalong and Keep Calm Craft On

  3. Oh I think those squares are lovely. I just love the combination of the deep and bright colors. I think the cream will work beautifully. Can't wait to see the shawl!

    1. thank you :) It's almost an experiment for me, I'm drawn to bright colours in general so using the paler shades is challenging lol

    1. It's yummy isn't it. I've added two more colours to it and I'm going to do a series of squares all starting on a different colour but following the same order
