WIP Wednesday

Nothing major to report this week... 

I've been knitting a bit on my Boneyard Shawl, mainly in the car, while out on daytrips with the kids, but progress is really too minor to bother you (and myself) with a picture.

I've also been adding a few rows here and there to Ripple. It doesn't look much, but since the last picture I took the blanket has actually doubled in size! There is a long way to go of course, but if I only knit one or two rows every few days I should have it done in a year, which is good enough for me!!


Other than that I've been busy with my testknit. I was nearly done with the colourwork, but then spotted a mistake that meant that I had to rip a few rows out. I'm nearly done with the section, though, and after that it should be a breeze. I quite like the way it looks, although you really don't want to see the back of it - suffice to say that it has been a loooong time since I've done any colourwork, and it shows. It took me a while (and quite a few wrong decisions) to remember and figure it out. It's definitely improving now and for the past few rows I've been almost happy with the back, but I just don't have the heart to rip and start again, lol. 


What have I been reading? Mainly books on pottery. I've started doing pottery again after nearly 10 years and I might just have become a teensy bit obsessed... I'll tell you more about it another time.

  1. I might do some colour work myself. :-) It has been a long time since I did it. Back in the eighties, I guess. Have a nice day. Regula

  2. Oh I love colour work, there's something about knitting with both hands that makes me feel very clever!! And your ripple is looking fabulous. I was given a ripple kit last Christmas and its growing similarly slowly but I do love it!

  12. I read your post a couple of days ago and then came back to it today - so now I know where I got the crazy idea of pottery lessons :) It's such a pleasure to see ripple blankets - there's something comforting about that pattern.
