Yarn Along – New WIPs


On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

I finished two projects, one gifted and loved;
the other at my daughter’s, Mary is the blocker extraordinaire.

Of course, as a reward for finishing, I could start something new.

400 yards of Posh Yarn, Hannah, Another Year Gone reminds me of the ocean.

Middle Beach with white pearly beads,
the beads are the foam on the tips of the waves.
Mar 12 middlebeach 003I started with size 4 needles, but I’ll be frogging and restart on 6’s.

Why, I don’t know,
but I’ve been checking out Granny Squares on Ravelry.
Then I learned March is Crochet Month.

A baby afghan of one large granny square was inevitable.
At Babetta’s Yarn and Gifts, my favorite yarn store,
I searched until I found these:
Rialto in pink, green and white.

On a size F hook, two rows of color at a time
will become a baby girl’s blankie.

Miss Shirley’s shawl and Miss Deanna’s quilt are not being neglected in spite of the attraction of new WIPs
