The shawl is still growing, I think I'm going for 50 rows in total, and at the moment I'm on about row 36 so the end is in sight! I also finally wore my handmade frock for the first time this week to school. I made it from a curtain gifted by a friend - Liberty of London no less! The pattern is a Simplicity one recommended by Rachelle over at Ted & Agnes.
I'm also trying to finish my blankets for the caravan as we've already booked to go away in it over half-term and they aren't finished! Mind you, they aren't going to be finished by the end of next week so I guess we'll have to go away without them! I've managed 40 out of 80 squares of my variegated blanket, but then I've got to do the edging and sewing together!
I started some wristwarmers today too. I found the image on pinterest and found the free pattern here. I managed the first one during an episode of Father Brown this afternoon!
I've also managed to get a guest blog spot on another crafty blog which I'm really excited about - more when that occurs!
I'll also have lots more craft books to review on here too as Search Press have signed me up as a member of their review team which I'm really pleased about. Lots of crafty treats coming this way soon I hope, and maybe a giveaway or two?!
My bag from Society 6 arrived this week too. It's a Dottie Angel design, though I really couldn't decide which one to choose. In the end, I went for the house design. Can't wait to use it!
Black Sheep Wool are having a sale at the moment, so I sort-of bought 10 balls of wool and a pattern book for some Connemara wool by Sirdar. Just got to choose what to make with it now, but it was less than half price per ball so a bargain really!
Hope you're all okay and not to wet or windswept. We have had one dry day in the past few weeks - it is truly dismal at the moment.
However, on a positive note, apparently knitting is good for you so pick up those needles!
