WIP Wednesday – 17th August

Hey! How has your week been? We have been really lucky, and had a lovely holiday in France last week. That, of course, didn’t stop me crocheting!

Most of this week has been spend adding rows to this mermaid tail blanket: It is now 45 rows long and measures 85cm wide and 42cm long.

I spent a lot of time last week in the car, and made this sweet set:

This hat and long snood set is made using Ice Yarns Magic DK and is available to buy here in my Etsy shop!

My biggest achievement this week has simply been finishing the bed throw! I am so proud of myself! (And Chris, who managed to photograph it!)

The end result was 225cm wide and 50cm long. This is the biggest thing I have ever made!

I may have also started a granny square blanket! This is going to be a baby blanket and will be a gift. I am using Ice Yarns Magic DK yarn again:

So as I mentioned, we went away last week to France. We went to France, in the Loire Valley, and had a lovely time! The gite had a swimming pool, so the children spent a lot of time in there; plus we went to a theme park and a zoo. Mostly though, I got to rest, which was amazing! If you are interested, here are some of my favourite photos:

I hope you all have a good week! Let me know what you get up too!
