Current WIP count: 6
I’m still plugging away at my swirl hat, and I looooove the way the colours are coming out.
Isn’t it pretty! There’s another stripe of green and yellow coming up and I’m excited to get it in there. I know, simple things 😉
I’ve also started another virus shawl with my sparkly blue yarn.
It’s really interesting repeating a pattern after several months have passed. I made my first virus shawl back in July last year and I didn’t exactly struggle with it, but there were several points where I wasn’t entirely sure of myself.
There were times I wasn’t sure which stitch I should be working into so I had to count them, for every single repeat of every single row. I had to keep the chart near me at all times so I could check what I was doing every 5 minutes. No wonder it took me so long!
Fast forward to today, and I’m wondering how I ever struggled. It seems glaringly obvious which stitch I’m supposed to be working, and I’m racing along with barely a glance at the chart. It’s great to have actual proof that I’m improving!
This one has a deadline so I’ll be focussing on it until it’s finished, and then I’ll get on with finishing my swirl hat (and everything else on my WIP list. Ahem).
That’s what I’m working on this week! How’s your week going? Got some WIPs to share? Let me know in the comments!
