WIP Wednesday - Shawl, Socks, and Baby Blanket

I have three different WIPs that I have been working on.  There's actually more, but they are snoozed on Ravelry, so I don't count them.

First up are Dave's socks.  I made him a pair a while ago, FO page here.  I decided to start him a second pair when I traded some yarn.  In a trade I received this:

I loved the blue, green, and brown together.  It is MacKintosh Celtic Sock in color Frog Pond.

I have more done of the socks, but this is the latest picture I have:

I'm actually almost to the heels.  These are the first socks that I'm doing two at a time on two circular needles.  I can see how easy it would be to do two at a time on one circular with magic loop as well.  Don't be afraid of socks!  They are really easy.

The next project I have been working on is for myself and it is the pattern Happy Street.  I am using Wollmeise yarn and Spacecadet yarn.  My ravelry project page is here.

I can't wait to finish this.  In the picture I was working on the 5th stripe out of 10.  Now I had just finihsed my 8th stripe.  I'm SO CLOSE!

I haven't been working on my Happy Street as much as I normally would because I'm working on a blanket for my soon to be nephew, Owen.  My sister really liked this baby blanket I made for her best friend's baby.  It was all over my blog last year as my Little Square Baby Blanket.

The theme to Owen's nursery is all around the bedding that my sister and her husband chose:

So these are the colors I chose for his little square blanket:

I'm using Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino yarn.  I have all 168 squares complete and I'm working on seaming the squares together.

I'm using the seam that is in this pattern, 124-1 Bohemian Oasis - Crochet blanket in ”Delight” and ”Fabel”.  I'm really trying to get this blanket done by the shower, which is August 11th.  I have about 25 days left!

For the first time in forever I actually have a WIP post, so I've linked up with Tami's Amis.

  2. Your blankets are gorgeous, I'm not at all surprised they requested one! And I totally agree about socks - not scary at all, awesome!

  3. It's all beautiful!
