First long term project, the crochet blanket. This is meant for my little miss' second birthday (as I knit her brother a blanket for his second birthday and it is still very beloved. Its only fair right?). Its also the blanket I was working on when I took pictures for last week's phototutorial
Its now as wide as I want (having laid it in her bed to check) and now I just need to make it lots longer!
Second project is the long term spinning project. I now have one full bobbin:
And have started trucking on with the second:
And lastly another project for the miss. This time a cardigan, in age two, for when autumn hits.
Yes I know its not even spring, but I like to be ahead of the game and have them in her drawer ready for when the weather hits. And given how much my mum knitted for her last year I'd like to get more of mine on her back this year ;) Not that I begrudge my mother knitting for her, she needed something to do those long months off work after her operation. And she has been lovingly wrapped in knits all winter so its a good thing.
That is such a horrid colour to photograph. Hopefully when its finished I might get some sunshine to try and get an accurate colour capture... I can only hope! But as you can see, sleeve stitches are on hold, and I'm a good way down the body now.
So that's what I am up to at the moment. What crafty projects have you all got on the go?
Till next time.
