WIP Wednesday

Last Wednesday, I was catching up on blog-reading and saw that Miffy had posted a WIP photo post and I thought it was a great idea and that it might inspire me to get some knitting finished and blog a bit more regularly so I am going to attempt to join in.

WIP Wednesday is a blog-ring organised by Tami Ami so grab a cup of tea and go over there to have a look at all of the great progress pictures after you've seen my progress on the Hitch-hiker that I started making at Wonderwool.


It now has 19 points, it is supposed to have 42. I'm liking it more now. I was worried that it wouldn't be drapey enough but maybe because I spend all of my time pulling and stretching it, it seems good.

It looks quite good with a cup of tea and a carrot muffin that I made yesterday with a recipe out of the new, amazing Handmade Living magazine that I bought last week ....once I got my copy back from friends!

Welcome to WIP Wednesday! It's fun. I noticed this week that it was lovely to see how far you've come since the week before. Stops you getting disheartened. Hitchhiker is very appealing. I saw Miffy's as well. I've seen one in the flesh too and it's lovely. I may use the recipe for one of my nice hand dyed yarn. I think it will showcase nice yarn really well.

Welcome to WIP Wednesday at Tami's.

I really do like the colour of your scarf and the shape is extraordinary. Can't wait to see what it looks like finished.

Gorgeous color on your shawl! And it goes so well with tea and muffins. Bonus!

I've had hitchiker in my queue for EVER (literally - I think it may have been the first thing I ever queued!) and I always cast on something else, but THAT is looking gorgeous! I love the colour!!! Maybe I need to get some lovely bright yarn, and bump it up the queue!

Thanks for the inspiration :)

Welcome to WIPW! Thanks for joining us. :)

You're the second one so far in WIPW this week working on the Hitchhiker! I added the pattern to my queue a few minutes ago. I LOVE the color you're making it in. It's beautiful.

I've been admiring that Hitchhiker pattern and yours is a great color. I may be back to request a custom item from your Etsy shop so I'm glad I found your blog through WIPW!

I've seen a lot of Hitchhiker shawls recently, the pattern makes me wish I could knit! I love the little points. Yours looks lovely, and I hope it turns out exactly as drapey as you'd like. :)

(And that carrot muffin looks amazing. Yum.)

Carole said...

I've just finished a Hitchhiker too! I LOVE the colour of yours.

What a gorgeous color!!

Welcome to WIPW! Sorry I'm just commenting, as I've been crazy busy. I try to comment on all of the WIPW and FO Friday entries but this week has slipped away. Your Hitchhiker is gorgeous! It seems like the popular pattern the last few weeks. I think you're the 3rd or 4th in our group to be working on it!

Your Hitchhiker has sold me. I have put it on my list. Your's looks really good.

Sam Findlay said...

Welcome to wip Wednesday! Your shawl looks lovely, beautiful colour!

geeky Heather said...

I agree; FABULOUS color!

Liz said...

I love your shawl! That is a fabulous colour :D

Minding My Own Stitches said...

What a gorgeous yarn choice! It's beautiful!

Carole said...

I've done a Hitchhiker and can't wait for the weather to cool down a little so I can wear it - Loving the colour you have picked for yours :)

RugbyMad said...

So many people are making or have made this pattern, which leads me to think that I'm missing out on something. Good idea grab a cup of coffee and muffin.

Very pretty. I love the pink/purple yarn.
