WIP Wednesday

So as i mentioned earlier in the week i am going to try this Working Progress Wednesday, i always have stacks and stacks on my needles at any one time but i thought i would just share the main things and not the things that have been sat in the bottom of my bag.

This is yet another Shroom
Super easy and quick i likes making these

Next up is something im not loving
My friend asked me to make her some elbow high mitts, i only agreed because we were doing a trade, she makes lovely lino prints and i wanted one for my new house, i am nearly on the wrist of the 2nd one and seriously regretting ever starting. I know my lovely picture will be worth it and she will love them so i must plod on.

This is what i am hoping to trade for
Cute huh! you can get one here

Im planning on having both of these things done for the weekend, when i have lots of other crafty things planned with my chums and of course more knitting.
Hope you enjoyed my first WIP Wednesday, are you playing along?

Welcome to WIP Wednesday. I hope you continue with us. It has really helped me keep myself on track.

I understand forcing yourself to finish a project you just don't like work on. Hopefully you'll be finished soon.

Love seeing what you're working on. And that lino is SOOO cute.

Welcome to WIPW! As Denise said, I hope you continue with us.

What don't you like about the mitten? They look good to me!!

Thanks for the link to the Shroom pattern. Such a cute hat! I love WIP Wednesdays because it is so much fun to see what other crafters are up to. I think the print is definately a good trade for the mitts even if they are tedious to knit.

That shroom hat is fantastic, I love the textures of it. I can definitely understand making more than one!

And that lovely lino print is worth a bit of a boring project slog, I think. (I kind of hate making paired things, myself. I just did some mittens a few weeks ago and it gets a lot less fun on the second one...)

Great projects on the go there Rachel, I'm not knitting anything ATM, I need a trip to the wool shop. That lino print is gorgeous

Thanks for dropping in at my blog! We do seem to be in similar situations with work and knitting! I recognised your picture from the Baa Ram Ewe group on Rav, I can't do Thursdays though so I don't go to their knit nights.

I'm sure your friend will love the gloves and that print is lovely, worth knitting for I'd say!

Yay, so glad you're playing along too! I missed this one as we were flying home yesterday from the Alps so I guess missing it wasn't too bad!

Just keep thinking of the lino print when you're working on those mits, it's fab!

They do a Finished Object Friday too which sounds great too, I know I'm going to do it tomorrow.

I'll join in the welcome to WIPW! Lovely blog. And sorry the mitts are such a hassle. They'll be well worth it, though! The print is terrific.
