WIP Wednesday 2 May

Another Wednesday rolls around, the rain has stopped (for now), the sun is out (forgotten what it looked like).

My knitting goes on, I'm still working on my Morocco - back is finished and the front started


I have done a few more squares for the blanket


I found this website recently and plan to knit the following cute hat
 

Popped into my local charity shop this afternoon, picked up some more yarn and buttons - 440 grams of yarn, no idea what it is, but it will go in another of my many blankets (-:, cost me £3.00 and £3.25 for all the buttons



And last but not least.  The prospect of a new craft?  I got given a box of assorted cross stitch items, my mother in law had a rifle through, she took what she wanted. I have sorted some aida for either me or my eldest to use - she at least cross sititches! The remaining items I plan to take to my craft group tomorrow.  I'm sure someone can find a use for it. I like to spread the wealth....

  1. Love the new yarn. It that black or Navy blue going through it?
    At least you have something to show for WIP Wed. I am seriously lacking in knitting time lately.

  3. Love the blue for the Morocco. And another charity shop find. Wish the charity shops here were as bountiful. Having said that, where would I put the yarn?? I am sure some of the ladies from MCG will love to rummage through your cross stitch giveaway. Take care. Pxx

  6. Great score at the thrift shop! One can NEVER have too many buttons :)
    I always wonder about yarns when I see them, and never buy them because I cannot tell what they are.
    I'm thinking I may have missed out on some great stuff... Thrifted yarn (no matter the type) would be perfect for something like a granny square blanket!

    1. Thanks, I tend to only use thrift shop yarn for blankets, as they take so much yarn its a cheap way of producing it
