WIP Wednesday

Now I have finished the test knit I have CO several little projects.  Much as I love knitting sweaters, they take me so long and when I have finished I love to do lots of little things!!  I will blog about my finished test knit but until the pattern is published I will refrain from posting finished pictures.

So without further ado...
First project is a pumpkin hat!!  I want to do some winter hats for the stall in the run up to Xmas, so Halloween is the first event - so pumpkin hats it is!!  I will go on to do some pumpkin coffee cosies.

I have, after procrastinating for over a year, finally CO a pair of socks!  Using Totally Vanilla from Socktopus as my pattern and some left over Mellifera yarn (twist sock in spruce).

And my new obsession - pom poms!!  Actually I can't really classify these as my WIP - I have got my son into it and he makes me one a day at the moment!!  I will be tidying them up but they are to become something for the stall ;-)

So that is my progress on my little projects - we are off on holiday soon so now I have to pack, but I shall be taking the pom pom  makers, socks and maybe the orange yarn - just in case!!
Linking with KCCO this week.


  1. Those pompoms are adorable! Can't wait to see how you use them!

  2. it's always fun to start new projects.. I'm just starting hats too x

  3. I love the sound of a pumpkin hat. I can't wait to see it finished. Pompom making can be quite addictive.

  4. Pom Poms always bring a smile to my face. Can't wait to see your pumpkin hats put together. You made a great, fast start.

  5. I love pompoms and love the tiny ones you make on a fork. That pumpkin hat is gorgeous, bright and cheery and will be perfect for the stall.

  6. Love the pom poms - I haven't made any for years, but now that you've reminded me of their existence I might spring them on the kids tomorrow. Should keep them occupied for an afternoon... :)

    Looking forward to seeing more of your pumpkin hat and socks!
