WIP Wednesday - Love of Colours

It is that time to show off my works in progress, from last week I have only really worked on my snake and my two blankets have been hibernating (this I shall need to fix). Although like many others, I have no problem picking up other projects whilst having a good number on the go.


Mr Snake has had a few colours added on to him, and he is 16 inches now compared to his 10 inches last week. This means I still have roughly another 20 inches to make him grow to his full size to function as a door draft excluder.


The next thing I am working on, are rather small projects thankfully...two jar covers. I have decided to de-clutter my shelves of pens etc and using these jars to be a bit more organised and also a bit more colourful. I am using the pattern that Attic24 is showing us, as she is kind of my idol crocheter at the moment.


My hot water bottle cover is currently getting a border around the edges to bind all the sides together, this is also part of my Year of Projects.

That is all I have to show for this wednesday :) Now to see what awesome things that others are making, you can check other people by going to Tami's Amis blog

  4. You have alot of useful home projects on the needles (needle?) I'm thinking that a door draft blocker would be a great project!! And something I could use my acrylic for, that wouldn't bother my skin!

  11. What a nice way to add color to your place w/those jar covers. Love how your snake is coming along! You have such a great eye for bright, cheery colors. When one stripes via crochet, does she have to worry about a jogless jog like we knitters do?
