Lots of WIPs Wednesday

I have been meaning to blog for days but now we are back at school, I don't get around to doing it until late and decide that really bed might be a good idea but today I have WIPs to post.

Firstly, we have *the* sock. I have done the heel flap. Twice, in fact, because the first time I did it, it was wrong so I ended up taking it all down and having to do it again. I blame it on all of the glitter on Strictly Come Dancing....nothing to do with Brendon and James ;)


On Monday I had an impromptu knit, put the world to right, tea and cake night. Only, given how I had just had to pull lots of work down, I decided something easier might be better for chatting so I pulled my granny squares out and finished one of those off.  I signed up for a crochet workshop at A Good Yarn in Cleethorpes at the weekend but it isn't until next April so I decided I would have a go at teaching myself so last night I made this...


You can't really tell on the photo but the edges have all started to curl up. The Twitter Crochet Queens tell me that it is because I haven't put enough increases in but I'm not really sure I can sort it so I might just put it back into the bag until I have finished a few more things although, lots of funky crochet things are finding their way into my list, like this and this so maybe I will have to work out where all of my stitches are.

For more WIPs, go over to Tami's blog.

The sock is looking great! Crochet can be tricky when you are a newbie. I am still trying to figure out how to make granny squares. I love attic24's flower cushion. She has such a wonderful way with colors.

I have exactly the same problem (as a very beginner crocheter) so I'll be interested to see how you get along!
