Happy Friday, my friends!!!!! How have you all been doing the last week? I'm posting a bit later in the week as I've been extremely busy. The last few days I've been getting the house ready to put up for sale, sorting, cleaning and de-cluttering. I've also been working full-time due to staff shortages and annual holidays but one good thing about going to work, there is a fantastic coffee shop next door where they sell the most amazing coffee with their own homemade caramel syrup using Maple syrup. It is delicious!!!!!!
This morning whilst looking through Instagram, I came across a post from Little House in the Corner, who said she was hosting a Weekend WIP Along over on her blog, also called, Little House in the Corner. I don't know how I've missed this lovely blog for so long, she always has some gorgeous projects on and off the needles.
I have many WIPs on my needles at the moment, I don't seem to be able to stop casting on new projects, after seeing Shelley's WIP Along, I thought I'd share a few that I'm going to be working on over the weekend.
As you can see in the above photo, I have cast off my Farmhouse Shawl and just need to add the fringe so hopefully that will be finished over the weekend. It's all blocked ready and is a very large shawl, perfect to wrapping around yourself on cooler, summer evenings on the beach.
I have ordered some more Drops Nepal to knit another Farmhouse for my youngest daughter, who really loved mine and wanted one for her holiday too.
Paige wanted a two colour shawl in neutral colours, I've changed the increases for this one down the centre , instead of YO's, I'm M1R and M1L. I really like the look of this so I'll be doing this on my next Farmhouse Shawl.
Next up is another new project, this shawl is for a swap I've joined, organized by Elisabeth. I've never done a swap like this before and I'm quite nervous, hoping my swap partner will love her shawl as much as I'm enjoying knitting on it.
This is the only time I'm going to show you this until it's finished now and I'm not saying what the pattern is either, hehe, I'll keep you in suspense a while as it's a surprise swap. The yarn I'm using is wonderful to knit with and is very soft, it's Yarn Pony's Show Pony 4ply and is 50% merino and 50% silk.
These are my WIPs I'll be concentrating over the weekend, though I have many more on the needles. I thought I would also share this photo of the books I've been buying over the last few weeks with the intention of reading them over the coming summer months.
