WIP Wednesday

It's that time again: WIP Wednesday :)

In my little neck of the world (i.e., southern Wisconsin in the United States), spring has decided it wants to come a little early. It's been in the mid-40s to low 50s and the snow has (mostly) melted, leaving quite a mess outside. Unfortunately, that has made for a messy and muddy puppy. He's been confined to the kitchen more than he likes...and more than we like. But, we don't like muddy furniture and carpets so it's going to have to wait until it dries out or refreezes.

But, that's not what's important on a WIP Wednesday...a WIP Wednesday is supposed to be all about WIPs!

I'm only going to talk about one WIP......Little Man's Cobblestone Baby Blanket! I spent some time working on it last night (while watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and I got about halfway finished with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2). I made it to the border rows! I thought I'd never get this far. I have 18 border rows left and I can bind off and be done done DONE! Well......sort of. Then I have to wash it, block it, photograph it, give it to Little Man, write the pattern up nicely, send it off to test knitters, and hope and pray that it comes out as lovely for everyone else as it did for me. I'm hoping that if I finish the movie tonight and work on it after everyone else has gone to bed, I can have it finished before FO Friday.

We'll see.

And no, you're not getting a new photograph of it because it would be almost done and what's the point of showing you something that's almost done?

So, with that, I end WIP Wednesday. For more WIP Wednesday love, go visit Tami's blog.


  1. I'm so glad it's nearly done, I will be celebrating with you when you finish!

  2. I totally get not wanting to share a photo of a nearly-finished blanket, but not posting a picture of your muddy puppy is just kind of mean. :) Congrats on your almost success! I've got my fingers crossed for your test knitting process.

  3. I'm with Paula. We want the puppy!!

  4. Hasn't the weather been weird. It's 59 degrees here in Boston today.

  5. Aren't you loving this Spring weather (well not counting today's snow)? I'm in SE WI and I can't get enough of this "winter"'s been awesome!

    Can't wait to see your finished blanket!!!
