WIPW & The Storyteller

It is Wednesday, and this week I get to show two WIPs that I have been working on! I have a third WIP but its a secret though so I can't talk about it here unfortunately. However, I have managed to crochet a few more squares onto my granny square blanket which I have decided will go onto our bed when it is finished as I have no finished crochet in my bedroom at all.
The other evening I blogged about starting a white baby shawl project, when I found the Half Granny Square Shawl pattern by Anastacia Zittel on Ravelry. Although this is my fourth attempt at it, as I am having issues with the tension along the bottom edge which was making the shawl all bumpy looking. I think this time I have managed to put an extra stitch in the right place to ease up the tension. The owner of the pattern did say to crochet quite loosely but it seems I can't do that, as I like my stitches quite neat. I can't wait to have it finished!
Last night I went to a book event in Glasgow, to see Jodi Picoult talk about her latest book 'The Storyteller' and I also managed to get it signed by her!! It was a very entertaining evening, and it is always a pleasure to see an author talk so passionately about their novels.

If you are interested in seeing other WIPs, check out Tami's Amis blog.

I will see you soon with further progress of my projects!
Take care and enjoy the sunshine.

  3. wow I always love the colours you use Hazel.
    With your shawl have you thought of using a larger hook around the bottom to help with the looser tension? perhaps half a size bigger just in the are your having issues?

    1. I hadn't thought of using a bigger hook at that section, thank you for the tip Shelley :)

  5. So the baby shawl will be used like a blanket by the mum then? It looks fine to me.
    I have to try one of Jodi's books. I don't believe I've read any of hers at all.
