WIP Wednesday – 4th January

Hello and Happy New Year! I hope you had a good Christmas time.

This week has been a good one for me. I have made a lot of granny squares, so my lounge blanket is growing nicely. I have made a start on another baby blanket for my Etsy shop. This is a simple blanket, made using just the TR (DC in US terms) stitch. I learned how to make a TR foundation row too, which I’m pleased about as I’m not a huge fan of chains!

These are the items I have completed this week:

My knitted snood! It’s so warm and soft!

This is a slouchy hat and fingerless mittens for my bestie – a late Christmas present!

And this is Chloe modelling it. She is so cute!

And finally this gorgeous star blanket, which is available to buy in my Etsy shop.

I did pick up an old WIP this week, but after much thought I have discarded it. I just don’t like it! It is messy, and the starting chain is too tight which ruins the look of the blanket. The children are currently using it as a toy:

It’s lovely yarn though, so I will find something else to use it for.

Have a good week!
