The blanket is getting fairly large to cart around so I decided to work on the first two rounds of the squares only and then make the third round and attach later. These little squares work up quickly and are satisfying to make. I think if I ever make another blanket I will do it that way next time; I won't attach as I go as I've been doing but just make piles and piles of squares and then join them all up at the end.
This is the pair of earrings I'm working on, inspired by the red ones of the previous post but much smaller. Still not happy with the top part and how to attach the bottom part. They need more thinking. As you can see they have only 6 petal beads at the bottom instead of 18 in the red earrings! They are definitely much lighter.
And this is a Cellini spiral which will become a bracelet. I don't have a lot of red jewellery so I thought it would be nice to have a red bracelet to wear with my red earrings (maybe). Looks a bit too much like a candy cane perhaps?… But I like the design (this is my first try at making it) and will no doubt make it again in different colours.
And finally, the butterfly doily! This one has been "in progress" for such a long time!! I'm starting to feel embarrassed to keep showing it. But then I hope that if I keep talking about it, I might eventually get around to finishing it. I even took it with me on my holiday thinking it would be the perfect opportunity to make some progress on it… but no. Stuck on the last round, can you believe it? I mentioned it before but it feels a little "tight". Every time I think I'll pick it up again, I wonder whether I should change the stitch count and then I can't make up my mind so I put it away again.
Oh, and then there is one more hanky edging which is completed and just needs attaching to the hanky. That might be about it for my current WIPs. Not so bad, is it?
