WIP Wednesday - week 14

I spent most of my Easter break knitting, so have gotten quite a lot of progress done on my various projects.

I've finished the Punk Hedgehog since last I posted, and though cute, I don't think it's something I'll make again. It was easy enough to make but a hassle and a half to finish up! seeming the parts together is always fiddly and adding all the hair took forEVER! Ah well - as long as my niece likes it, it'll have been worth it.

I needed a mindless knitting project for an Easter lunch I was going to last Thursday, and as none of my current projects really fit the bill, I decided to cast on for another Wingspan. I've knit two of these already, and really enjoy the pattern. Besides, I had 24 mini-skeins in a DK weight which would be PERFECT for this project, so why not :) I'm half-way done already as it's a great pattern for when I'm too tired/distracted to follow any of my patterns.

"Any of my patterns" is mainly the favourite things cowl. I've added a few more sections since last time and have a feeling this is going to be a recurring guest in these posts for quite awhile yet.

Finally, Miriam asked for a knitted hat for her birthday. Obviously I couldn't pass on that opportunity, so I've cast on and almost finished a lovely cabled hat for her :) I've finished the hat itself and am just missing the pompom :-) It was a super-quick knit (took me two evenings) and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Just hope it fits, but ribbing is generally very forgiving in that regard :-)


  1. Yeah adding yarn for "hair" sucks! I've done it for amigurami quite a the look of that Wingspan...never thought of using minis for it..brilliant!
