WIP Weds: The Celebration Continues!


The festivities continue! My 2nd Blogaversary was yesterday, 

Last Friday’s gift was Toddler Tootsies pdf  so today I have a 2nd present for you :0)

Micah’s Blanky

Great gift for a Baby Shower, or child’s birthday. At 24”x36” it is the perfect size for a crib, stroller, or a car seat.This comfy little blanket is knit from the bottom-up with Garter stitch borders and a flat edge stitch detail. Knit in worsted, so works up quickly. The lace design is worked over 4 rows with only 2 lace rows to remember.

So on to my Works in Progress, it is Wednesday after all!

DH has been bugging for a new hat since DS pinched his. Truth is they both need a new one! Well I had been thinking about doing The Modjeska Hat that  texaspurlgurl gifted me last month. So here we go!


I modified the pattern by making a facing rather than ribbed edge. Living in Canada, my fella prefers a double thickness over his ears.

I continue to work on what I have now dubbed my Christmas sweater!

Moved to box as it is getting too large for my bag, and my furry children were getting too interested in it.

It may not be done till next Christmas ;0)

I have been Spring cleaning or fresh starting would be more accurate.
In shuffling through my Ravelry pgs.

    2. Easy Peazy Shawl – almost done
    3. Kelp Forest Shawlette very close to done
    4. Ruffle Scarffor the fall Bazaar so no hurry
Audiobook I am reading while knitting:
Walden by Henry David Thoreau Read by Gord Mackenzie. I read this years ago, and found in it a call to simplification of life.

Book this week: The Warden by Anthony Trollope (Ebook)
I am so fond of The Barchester Chronicles Series I bought the Complete works of Anthony Trollope for my Kobo (only $2.88) There are books in this collection that are no longer in print, plus other writings and biography! This book is a particular favourite. The main character is such a nice little man and you really feel for him all the way through. Delightful, a classic worth reading!
Music offering: “Great Big Sea” was such a success last week here is
Old Brown’s Daughter beautiful  acapella.

    I love that hat pattern!! What a clever idea to put your sweater in a see through box. I too have several fur buddies that get into all my crafts – mine are in tote bags – if they were in a box, I think they might be safe :o)
