WIP Wednesday ~August 3rd, 2011~

Still chugging along on the emergency baby blanket, and all other WIPs are on hold still I finish this project.  So far, it's still pretty hip to be a square.

IMAG0754Progress Report:
12 of 12 cream squares finished.
12 of 24 chocolate squares finished.
2 of 13 green squares finished.

26 of 49 total squares done!

However, the loose ends are starting to taunt me...

I'm actually getting excited about stitching these babies together and adding the i-cord. These are both techniques I've done very little. Practicing new things is always fun!

 If you were reading last week, you're probably wondering why so few squares have joined the brigade. My other wip has been taking up a lot of time. With some help from some great friends, and my poor SO's thrown out back, we're officially "moved in" to our new house! Well, our stuff is here... Unpacking to continue.


And the heat around here isn't helping either. But is it too hot to knit? Nah.

Looking for more WIP Wednesday action? Head on over to Tami's Amis to see even more works in progress.


  1. I loathe boxes, they are totally depressing. Maybe set yourself some small goals of getting a room a day done?

    And of course some knitting must be added to the day!

  2. That's quite a stack of squares; can't wait to see it all assembled. I'd take breaks in the unpacking to knit!

  3. The worst part will be sewing them together, but it's always worth it in the end, the squares look really great, keep it up!

  4. That's still a lot of squares and a TON of boxes. Here is hoping that SO's back gets better and that your two WIPs move forward speedily - heat not withstanding!

  5. That's an impressive stack of squares! I hope the new-technique-using part of the blanket will be fun. :D

    And yay for being at least partially moved-in! Congrats on the new house.

  6. Wow. 114. Yuck.
    Well done on the move, all things considered.

  7. Oh moving is such a ...hellish experience. I hate it. You have my sympathy x

  8. Your blanket is really coming together! :) I can't wait to see it finished up.

    Good luck with moving...

  9. That's a lot of squares with a lot of ends. I do not envy you sewing those in at all!

  10. Congrats on the move. I know how tough unpacking can be so good luck!


I would love to hear what you think!
