Wip wednesday #26

Hi everyone!

Really excited today to be taking part in Tami's linky party today. It's been so long since I did one of these and I can't wait to share what I'm up to and see what everyone else is up to.

This week has been great knitting and blogging again. I really missed being part of this world and it's great making things again. I shouldn't really be surprised but I've already added several projects to my list,
what is it about knitters and are inability to stop looking at more patterns and yarn when we already have far more to do/use than we could ever manage! It's half the fun though isn't it?!

So onto the all important Wips (work in progress)

First Wip - Baby

Not a wee baby anymore, 10 1/2 months, I don't know where the time has gone. Angus is walking, eating everything in sight and expressing his personality, he's such a little character! Unfortunately as is the way with children we've had a couple of weeks of illness here, first Angus and I had conjunctivitis and then this week Angus has had a chest infection. He seems to be on the mend now, so hopefully we will start getting more sleep soon!

Second Wip - Baby blanket

Now the last time you saw this it looked like this, so it has progressed but as you can see it wasn't finished for baby's arrival! I am still enjoying knitting it and will finish it, one day!

Third Wip - circular

This is a bit of a sad story, hankies at the ready. I picked this up on Monday night and had thought I had cast on but had got no further, I was wrong, it was half way through. As you can imagine I was chuffed, so I started knitting and was getting on fine until I had a proper look at it. I had gone wrong, instead of moss stitch which I had been doing I was now doing rib stitch. As I tried not to panic, I started to frog it, well long story short, I'm not very good at frogging and had to pull it all out and I'm now left with the ball of wool pictured above. I don't really have words to describe how cross I was about the whole thing, but that's knitting for you, I'm always learning!

Fourth Wip - Tie top

OK so lets end on a high, this is my tie top, I've been working on this for ages but I would just pick it up now and then but I've decided to make the commitment to work on it a bit each week, so hopefully one day i will actually wear it. To give you an idea of its journey so far click here.

So that's it for me today. I'm off for some lunch, then Angus and I are going on a play date. I'll catch up with Tamis and everyone tonight.
I will also be linking this post with the following blogs

  1. I have to say the first WIP is me favorite, what a little cutie!

    Sorry to hear about the frogging incident, it took me a long time to be comfortable with ripping back ... I was quite an expert at twisting my stitches when I picked them back up

    1. Thanks, the first wip is my favourite too! Yeah I'm going to need a lot of practice ripping back!

  2. Angus is adorable...I'm guessing he's king of the house!

  3. Angus is adorable! Welcome back to WIP Wednesday! I love the patterning on the tie top. I am sure it will be done soon if you can work on it a little bit here and there.

  4. What great looking projects, especially the first! Sorry about the one you had to rip out. :(
