Friday meme: works in progress

A slightly different tack for my Friday meme this week.

Jumping on that craft bandwagon, playing with the big kids. Lots of craft bloggers post their WIPs on a Friday – I think Fiona started it …

A pair of slippers. Still to be blocked, otherwise wipped done.

Fingerless gloves for an order; pattern from Knitty. Love that picot cast-off, and the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino is a dream to work with. Still to be popped in the mail, along with a chocolate pair.

One paper still to be finished started. (Another one is wipped and in, baby).
wip frogs

Socks. I couldn’t help myself.

You have the same quilt cover as me(mine is purple), Laura Ashley I believe. It goes perfectly with the very pretty socks.

It is Laura Ashley, but it's not a quilt. It was cafe curtains and a bed valance and a pillow case, all found in the op shop. I turned a bit of it into a cushion cover and it now lives on the rocking chair outside.

The socks ARE pretty, aren't they? The colours remind me of caramel lollies.

I have an apron, there are curtains, and some cushion covers.

I love the socks. Pink and brown together look so good and the added caramel color is just perfect. They make me think of candy, too.

OMG! I had no idea what craziness I was getting into with my question about the yarn. It clearly must hit a nerve with lots of people. I have just spent an hour on the net checking out stores and chat rooms. I think there is none to be had unless you are willing to pay $43. And I'm not, at least, I don't think so.
