WIP Wednesday 8th June 2011


Wow June already!  I missed last weeks WIPW as the computer gave up on life. Grrr!!!  So whats on my pins this week - guess what same as last time lol.  I'm still working away on the Summer Mystery KAL.  Really regretting starting a second because I'm falling behind with the rest of the group and it gets a bit tedious when you havent got the buzz of being ready for the next clue as its released.  I managed to slice through the pink bit of my nail last night whilst chopping the veg!  Lace work and an elastoplast on the tip of your finger are not a marriage made in heaven so it back to some crochet for a few evenings!!

Whilst my finger mends I will try and complete some of the crochet WIP's rather than start anything new!!!  Today I'm trying to get my Lucy's attic 24 bird finished.  Body is done and somewhere in the house there are some wings!  Using the gorgeous rico cotton for this one.


I'm also trying to put an hour aside after dinner to craft with Josie.  So far we've made a pin cushion and 2 gnomes for our gnome project.  I'm running a Toy Challenge Week (11-18th June) on my blog please join in and see what you can create during the week.


Please come and join us :-)
 I'm off to admire all the other WIPW over at Tami's Amis blog xx

  1. That bird's going to look so cute :)

    In answer to your question on my blog (clapotis this week) - I am indeed using straight needles... I have knit pros but the yarn is so fuzzy that it gets caught on the joins - as I'm not increasing any more, I have just about enough room ;) Just!

  2. Both shawls look awesome, hope your finger heals quickly, as I know what you mean. Even a regular band-aide catches on the yarn when you're trying to knit, and you're using light weight fingering ..even harder.

    Great idea about the toy challenge!

  4. I love how the mystery shawl is looking in zauberball! Of course, I love zauberball in general. :)

  5. You poor thing. Hope that finger heals soon; I know it must be a bummer trying to knit lace with a bandaid.

  7. Yikes, sorry about the veg-chopping injury! I've had a quite a few near misses while chopping lately, so I'm wincing in sympathy. I've been meaning to try one of those Attic 24 birds for a while, and I love the colours and look of the yarn on yours.

    And those gnomes! So, so cute. And I'm going to link up with your toy project, since I'm trying to get a couple toys done this week! :D What good timing.

  8. I love the bird pattern! I made a few for presents earlier this year. The colours you've chosen are gorgeous. I also love the pink yarn in your KAL.

  9. Oh dear - hope your finger heals soon. I am also planning on making the birdie - although I've been sidetracked by knitting so far this week - looking forward to seeing it finished.

    Your shawls are looking beautiful xxx

  10. I love all your projects! I'm so sorry to hear about your finger, but at least you have a project that is safe to work on until it heals. Great idea for the toy challenge!

  12. OWIE! I'm sorry to hear about your finger -- I got a mystery injury on my left-hand middle finger the other day and it's been very hard to crochet or knit with it. :\ I feel your pain!

    Your WIP are all beautiful!
