WIPW: Work-In-Progress Wednesday




Well, no little projects this week. I did finish my untangled earbud cozy, and then finished two more as well! But for right now, the only thing i'm really working on is my angel baby blanket. I'm hoping to finish it up in the next few days! I'm also hoping I have enough yarn. It'll be close. :)




Since I finished my Covered Untangled Cozy Earbuds, I finished the book I was listening to last week, and started The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen . I am still reading The Descendants by Kaui Hart Hemmings.





What have you worked on this week? You can always link up with me!
I am linking this bad boy up over at Tami's WIP, Ambassador Crochet, Yarn Along, Hooking on Hump Day and SusanD's.







Editing to add: I finished this evening!! It looks so good!

    1. I'm just about finished and i'm just about out of yarn! It looks like i'll have enough to finish, but not add a border. I have yet to find the same color skein, but i'll keep looking. If not, I guess it'll be borderless.

  2. At first I thought that was a heart afghan but then I saw the chart - an Angel. Is it for someone special?

    1. I am donating baby blankets to a local mission. They make care packages for hospitals to give women who lose their baby. (http://simply-crochet.blogspot.com/2012/05/in-need-of-baby-blankets.html)

      When my daughter was born still, I was expecting to go back to work, not be admitted. We didn't have our bag ready, and the care packages include comfort items as well as other items to let them know they're not alone.

      I know the blanket I was making for my daughter wasn't completed yet, so we held her in a blanket another person had made. It brings me comfort now that I can give that same comfort to others.

    2. Wow, hits close to home right now. What an awesome community crocheters and knitters are - preparing a "comfort hug" for someone especially one who is grieving is very humbling.

    1. It's just a Double Crochet Cluster (dcCL): Yo, insert hk in next st, yo, pull yarn through st, yo, pull yarn through 2 lps on hk, [yo, insert hk in same st, yo, pull yarn through st, yo, pull yarn through 2 lps on hk] three times, yo, pull through all 5 lps on hk.


      I dcCL every dark box, and single crochet every blank space.

    2. What a great little blanket - is the pattern a cross stitch pattern or was it made for crochet?

  4. Thanks for coming to visit me! Your blog is adorable, and so is your blanket! It looks like so much work! What a wonderful thing to be donating! I see your reading the Peach Keeper. I liked it, but have to admit I liked (loved) her earlier works more. Give them a try if you haven't yet!

  7. That is such a beautiful blanket! I've never seen anything like it before. So totally unique. Once we unpack our moving boxes and I can crochet again, I'll add a project of mine to your link party, but in the meantime, thanks for linking up to mine at Hookin On Hump Day!
