Wip Wednesday #2


First let me apologise, today's wipw is not going to have much to show and I'm not going to be my normal cheery self either. I'm not feeling so great. In fact I've not been feeling great for a week now, my asthma is playing up and I'm back on steroids for it. And today I thought I would be feeling much better as I've been on the steroids for a few days now but its as bad as ever and I'm going back to the doctor, which sucks as I wanted, really wanted to go back to work tomorrow but that isn't looking likely. I haven't even really felt like knitting. Anyway enough with my pity party.

So as a result this week has been pretty slow knitting wise. Still trying to get my bobble hat completed but all I'm seem to be doing is measuring it.


It needs to be 18cm before I can start decreasing and finish it and it just seems to be taking forever. Plus I must have the most uninspiring tape measure ever, there are so many cute, funky ones, I'll need to get one.


Anyway as you can see from the above photo I also made a pom pom for my bobble hat, which did manage to put a smile on my face for a while.

Anyway I'm going to go and for more upbeat and productive wipw's please visit Tami's Amis blog

  3. I hope you start feeling better soon! I hate projects where I feeling I keep measuring and measuring and the piece doesn't get any longer. I have a boring tape measure like yours too.

  4. I hope you're feeling better and more knittery soon. It's always sort of depressing to not even feel like creating something. :(

    I love the pom-pom, though, it's definitely a cheer-up sort of item. And I, too, really want a cute measuring tape. There are some really amazing ones on Etsy!

  7. Oh no! I'm sorry to hear about not feeling well. I've had asthma all my life, so I know where you're coming from. :( I hope the doc can help out this time. Maybe a different steroid? Sometimes that helps me.

    Anyway, I can't wait to see the hat. I love the artsy photo of the pompom!
