Over the past few weeks I have been enjoying Work In Progress Wednesday and Finished Object Friday. I would like to join the party, albeit a little late. With this in mind I got busy with the camera this morning to show you a couple of my works in progress.
Now I have been working on this for a long time, more or less since I picked up a hook and found the beautiful Attic24 website from where this pattern came. The problem has been that you have to sit under it to work on it and it's been a little too warm for that sort to thing recently. I've picked it up again though and think I have two more colour repetitions to do before I can give it a border. Sometimes a rubbish summer can be a blessing. I have lifted this pattern and the colours I have used in their entirety from Lucy's website. Funnily enough now that I have a little more experience I probably would have the confidence to choose my own colours but it is what it is, and will stand as a permanent reminder of my beginnings in crochet and the debt of inspiration I owe her.
This is for my beloved Mr HT. He feels the cold these days, especially in his poor old wrist, so this one is especially for him. I've tried to keep the colours pleasantly Autumnal (that hot pink is actually burgundy) so that he can drape it around without too much embarrassment. Well, to suggest he will drape it anywhere is probably overstating things, bung it around might be nearer the mark. I have to say that he finds my new fixation on crochet rather peculiar, but I'm hoping this will help to persuade him that I am still in possession of my faculties. The blanket is not a surprise and I was pleased when the other day I suggested that my father might be a more worthy recipient and he objected in no uncertain terms.
Thank you for popping by (if anybody does) it really is a lovely idea this WIP wednesday and well worth heading over to Tami's blog for a look at the work of some better crafters that me.
