WIP Wednesday: Inspired by the Blog-o-sphere

This week I have been really inspired by all the crafting I've seen, done by bloggers who link up with Tami's Amis for WIPW and FOF and Ginny's Yarn-Along.

I have 2 'big' WIPs this week, not counting lesson planning.
yarn bowl
First up is the Claret Cowl, inspired by Ginny, who shared her sunny cowl with us a few weeks ago. This is also semi-inspired by Liz [Yarnberry] who shared about a yarn bowl two Fridays ago. I am actually surprised that I like knitting in the round.

Second is my MSU ripple. One of my best friends is getting married in a few months, and this will either be a wedding or shower gift to them. (They met at MSU) I'm using the ripple pattern from Lucy @ Attic24, which I have used before and absolutely LOVE. I'm using Caron Simply Soft, so it'll be easy to wash but still super soft.

I have to get back to my lesson planning, so that's all for today! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love the yarn you're using for the cowl, gorgeous colour :)

  2. i love the yarn you're using for the cowl also - it's so pretty and looks super soft. The blanket is lovely, i can't wait to see it finished.

  3. Very thoughtful to use the MSU colours! The ripple IS very attractive, isn't it!

  4. That blanket is such a thoughtful gift!

  5. Great projects. I have yet to try a ripple but I have some lovely yarn that I've been planning to use for a crochet project for a while so I may need to!!!

  6. Fabulous ripple, I haven't tried a straight ripple yet (that sounds strange, I mean I've made a round ripple but not a rectangular one) but I think it might well be on the list for next winter. Great colours.


I love knowing that you stopped by!
