WiP Wednesday #9

This week apparently I'm on a cowl, blanket and block working up week! Since it's Feb. 1 all the new blocks came out for the CALs I'm in sooo... I have 4-5 blocks to work up for the month, I'm excited!

As for stuff already in progress, most of the blankets I share here in other posts so I won't repeat them but nobody as seen the cowls yet!

First up (above) is my Belleflower Infinity scar using my merino superwash from Tess' Designer Yarns in Portland, Me. As you can tell from the picture it's a new start but man do I love this yarn, it's sooo so soft! This project is for me and only me, I've already claimed it!

Next up is my criss-cross cowl off the Caron yarns website. I have one done that I'll likely share on Friday but I had to share this one as I love how the rainbow yarn is carrying itself up the criss-croww pattern on the outside! This is being done with Loops & Threads Impeccable.

As soon as the little one wakes up and we get some breakfast, it's off to Michaels to buy some more Impeccable for a baby blanket that needs to be done. Turns out I remembered I needed to make one expecting friend but realized I had another expecting from who is due sooner so I need to get going on these! I have so many friends expecting little ones is exciting but makes things busy :-P (although worth it).

]These two friends aren't finding out the gender of their little one and are sticking to the neutral colors so one blanket will be all yellow with a sunshine applique on it using this pattern as a base: Baby Popcorn Afghan.

The other will be brown, tan, white, yellow, green and made using this pattern: Mitered Squares Baby Throw.


  1. Everything looks great! Your criss-cross cowl is gorgeous. I love the colors.

  2. Wow the Tess yarn is so gorgeous. I don't blame you for claiming it!

  3. The red yarn is absolutely stunning! I wouldn't let that out of my sight if I were you. Your Criss-Cross Cowl looks so much nicer than the pictures on Caron's website! It's fantastic how the rainbow yarn is sitting on top like that!

  4. Both these projects are awesome! I love the yarn for the Bellflower, and the cowl is lookin' funky! I love that you can both tone down and show off rainbow yarn in creative ways like that.

  5. the Criss cross cowl is gorgeous!! beautiful projects

  6. Wow, I really love the criss cross! The Belleflower is also lovely.

  7. The criss cross cowl is fab. I gave you an award because I really enjoy reading your blog.
