WIP Wednesday 8


I'm afraid to say this week is a little thin on the ground as I've actually finished most of the things I've been actively working on this week (which is a yey really as I'll have stuff finished and can post on Friday but doesn't leave me much to post about here sorry). The only thing still going at the moment is my Bavarian shawl but I haven't gotten any further than last week as I've been finishing my blanket, cake topper and have made a peg bag also.

I am about to start a new shawl as part of a crochet-along. I'm going to be making the maia shawl and have bought some lovely kauni yarn to make it with in shades of purple-grey-black.


I also got some of the rainbow yarn and some pencil roving at the same time so need to think up something lovely to do with that as well :)


I will have a look at everyone's WIP over today and for more WIP posts please visit Tami's Blog

  2. I love Kauni yarn, it might be a teeny bit scratch, but the colours are amazing, and it doesn't seem to pill.

  6. Is the rainbow yarn Kauni too? It is stunning. I've been building myself up to join the CAL too as the Maia shawl looks gorgeous.

  10. Thanks everyone :)

    The Kauni yarn is really nice (have balled up the purple/black this evening ready to start the shawl) It does feel a little scratchy but I'm hoping it will soften a little with a wash.

    Clare yep the rainbows kauni too :) and definitely join in the CAL with us I've not even started yet so you can start with me :)

    Sarah I can let you have a link to where I got this yarn from if you want to get some the lady was lovely and really helpful :)

  13. Oh I got that exact same colour of kauni (the purple/grey/black). It's so fun to watch the colours change, but I found it a bit too rough for my liking :(
