What a week off! BF and I went up to Christina Lake to spend the week with his family and it was such a lovely trip, minus a few unfortunate events!
I wanted to share the WIPs I worked on while I was away. The first is an update on the baby blanket I showed you a couple weeks ago. I only added a couple rounds, so it still looks like a scarf, but I’m still liking the result and it’s a pretty easy pattern to work with.
Next up are a few goodies for this month’s Granny Square Swap. August’s theme is fruit, and I got inspired early for this theme. My first WIP is an apple applique that I am hoping to center into a square. I have finished all but the leaves of it, and I am pretty pleased with it. The pattern is Apple Coasters by Louise Howe. I used some green yarn and a G (I think). All I need to do now is center this into a square and add the leaves.
I am also planning on sending an apple cozy with my squares. I found a cute pattern called Apple Cardigan by Rebecca Harmon that I decided to try. I used the same green yarn and G hook. I need a button and some leaves and the coy is complete. It’s a tad small, but it stretches, I figure it will be ok.
So there are my WIPs for the week, stay tuned because I am a bit behind in my posting, I have lots to share. As well, check out the other great WIPs here, XO!
