Warmth and Sunshine

WIP Wednesdays

Today is finally warm - yeah!

At the moment we are sitting at 24°C and have even had some delightful sunshine! I am not holding my breath though as rainy weather has been forecast for later in the week. To be quite honest, after one day of this wonderful hayfever, spring rain seems like a wonderful relief - yes, I am a wuss, I can't bear this scratchy, puffy eye, runny nose and itchy skin - it is driving me insane!!!

Best to stay inside and knit ;)

Let me get on to this week's WIPs:

First up - Hubby's socks from last week have already been promoted to an FO and will be shared with you all on Friday :)

I am so enjoying my baby socks

Drops baby merino

I am loving the yarn I am using as well as knitting the incredibly small socks :) It feels awesome to achieve a sock in 2 days and am already on the foot of sock number 2, so I am counting on theses being FOs for Friday too.

As much as I am enjoying the socks, I can't wait to finish them so I can get onto learning a new skill.

Craftsy Tunisian Crochet

If you recall last week I was telling you about starting to learn tunisian crochet through Craftsy.


Well, my hooks have arrived and as soon as I am done with the baby socks I will be diving into the first project of this course - I can't wait :)

I will probably be starting the next cap I plan for Jas in conjunction with the crochet so that I can manage to get through some of my predestined, ordered stash, as I have so many awesome projects in my queue! 

Watch this space for more :)

On the reading front: Nothing has changed and I am slowly, very slowly, reading the same book as I have been for the last couple of weeks.

I wish you all a good rest of the week.
Thanks so much for visiting.
See you again tomorrow and on Friday :)

P.S: I will be sharing this with all my lovely creative Wednesday Friends :)

  4. I have one particular baby blanket that I make using Tunisian crochet. Once it is finished I cross-stitch bunnies on it. Enjoy the process.
