Yarn Along and WIP Wednesday

Well, not too much has changed on the work-in-progress front. I've got a handful of things on my needles, some of which you've seen already (such as the striped toddler sweater and the seed stitch baby blanket), and some of which you haven't. Either because I haven't had a chance to photograph them, or because they're Christmas presents! I'm working on a handful of Christmas presents right now! Two of them I'll be able to share with you when they're done (because I know that those two don't read my blog), but the rest will have to be a mystery until December!

Anyway, this week I'm working on a cow! (So in case you've been following along, that means that the legwarmers are finally finished!!! I'll have pictures for you on Friday!)

Milk Cow

I have the body and the udder done so far. It's going pretty quickly! I made this cow once before as a Christmas present for my Grandma last year. I hope it turns out just as great! This project has an end of September deadline, so I have to hurry!

As for reading, I'm still working on Russel Brand's My Booky Wook. Next up? The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

That's all for me this week! What are you currently working on? Linking up with Ginny and Tami. Check out more WIPs on their sites!

    1. Yeah! It really is no different than knitting or crocheting regularly! Especially if you've made something in the round before, like a hat. If you crochet, I definitely recommend freshstitches patterns! They're fantastic and she has an owl that's super cute. Everything is explained very well, which is helpful for a beginner. Plus, there's a Ravelry group full of people who are more than willing to help out! I'm sure the links to everything are in some of my previous posts, but you can contact me if you want help/advice!

  5. Hi Charlotte! Thanks for stopping by at mine :) And yes - the Knits for Nerds book has some pretty cool patterns :)

    Good luck with the knitted cow - it's shaping up nicely. Am sure it will be very sweet :)
