WIP Wednesday

At the moment I am working on a few things at the same time. I think most crocheters are like that, especially when you have been crocheting for a few years. My main project is still the Baby Blanket I’m making for a custom order. Im on Row 34 now. I think it will be 47 rows around but I will measure it to be sure its a suitable size and keep going until then. I am aiming for 36″ x 36″

Size charts such as this one form Cosy Rosie UK are very handy when trying to estimate how big or small to make a blanket. The pattern you use will also tell you what size the blanket will end up but if you are like me and use different yarn than recommended or go a little rogue on a pattern, having a size guide like this really helps.

I’ve also been doing a little research and development for future products to sell at Christmas markets and my online store. I was awake at 4am this morning so started making some Ribbon Tree decorations from this lovely Poppy and Bliss pattern. I made these 2 years ago and they were my most popular sellers. I made them out of DK acrylic that time and was a bit worried about how floppy they might become over time. So this time I’m trying out cotton. I just want the things I make to be long lasting and of good quality. I know people loved the acrylic ones but I also want to be happy with what I make too. So I’m going to finish this one off, hang it up and see how it holds its shape. If it manages to do it, I will go all out making them again for this years Christmas markets.

What are you working on at the moment? Let me know in the comments

  1. Your trees look fun. Hanging decoration I presume. I had a friend who used to make little Christmas puddings as tree decorations for the Charity shop she worked in and they went well. I suppose having something new for the tree is always good. I’ve gone back to my knitted socks now my blanket is finished and started what will be a Rainbow mandala for my bedroom wall.
