Welcome to the first WIPW (Work-in-Progress Wednesday)! I can't wait to see what everyone is working on this week. Just post a link to your blog post in the Mr. Linky widget below and it should save it so everyone can check it out.
I have a few projects going myself, in different stages of completion:
I started working on this hat this past Sunday and haven't been able to pick it up since. It seems it will be a little bigger than I originally intended, so it will probably end up a hat for my husband. I'm using Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Navy. Not to sound cliche, but I do love this yarn! It's reasonably priced and much softer than Red Heart Super Saver. The only problem is, I don't have a Hobby Lobby near me (or in California for that matter), so I have to order it without seeing the colors in person. Kind of a bummer, but I think I will be ordering more for sure!
My best friend in my school years just had a baby and I thought it would be great to make an amigurumi for her new son. His nursery doesn't have a theme, so I thought a yellow and blue giraffe would look cute in any baby's room! As you can see, I have most of the pieces finished (minus one horn) and just need to spend the time putting it all together and adding the face. I can't wait to see how he turns out! It is a free pattern from Red Heart.
Last but not least, you will be seeing this in the WIPW posts for a LONG time. About a month ago, I learned the afghan stitch and decided to start a wool blanket for the upcoming winter. I love how thick the stitch ends up, but it is slow going! I'm doing each square individually and then will connect them. The yarn is Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool yarn. I'll be using the brown with cream, solid brown and then cream with brown once the blanket is finished. I haven't worked on this in awhile, but it's a nice change from making amigurumi.
As I mentioned above, to share your WIPW post with us, just fill out the Mr. Linky below. Despite it saying you must comment, don't feel as if you do. That is something Mr. Linky automatically adds. I just ask you to check out a few of the links posted to see what everyone else is working on and comment there if you can. Everyone loves feedback and a little encouragement on their projects! Also, please link back to this post in yours to get the word out! The more the merrier!
