Current WIP count: 7

I think I might be able to cross another WIP off the list this week, as there’s now only a week and a half left to add to my Changing Tides blanket.So much lovely texture on these rounds.

Flax light is now my portable project again. It’s nice to get back to knitting, especially when that knitting is just stockinette for the next 7 inches. I only need to engage my brain to count the stitches for the garter panel every other round, so it’s been a perfect TV/choir/subway project.I’ve also got as far as taking the needle felt unicorn back out of the box, although I haven’t actually done anything with it yet. My thinking is that if it’s right in front of me and ready to go then I’m more likely to pick it up and make some progress when I have a spare 5 minutes. We’ll see how that works out!

Making this Lego blanket is so much easier using just one brand of yarn. All the bricks are coming out the same size every time (ignoring my initial mistake), and I know I can get 15.5 bricks out of every ball so it’s easy to calculate how far I’ve got to go.

I’ve tweaked the brick pattern slightly from last time, but now that’s memorised as well and I can make bricks while doing pretty much anything that doesn’t require the use of my hands. It’s got to the point that I sat down at choir on Monday and the person next to me went “Where’s your crochet?”. They know me well!

The second sleeve of my Flax Light is underway, and I’m still debating whether to try matching the missed purl rows on the first. That might be a wee bit too much like hard work. But also it might bug me too much to have non-matching sleeves. I’ll see how I feel when I get a bit further.

No progress on Changing Tides since last time, as it’s too big to transport and I haven’t once had time to sit on my sofa for a crochet session. Will I ever stop being so busy?? It is looking pretty though.

One day soon I really hope I can cross something off my WIP list. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
