Work in Progress Wednesday #6

I'm trying to work on my minute concentration span by working on only 2 projects at a time and it's working. I did try just working on one at a time but I just got bored and ended up playing Sims - Not productive.

This week my 2 projects are my Misty Meadow shawl, knit in Fyberspates' Scrumptious 4 ply and my vintage bear.

The shawl has knit up surprisingly quickly. I have just cast off the last row of the lace along the edge so now all it needs is a good hard blocking and it's good to go.

It's rare that I finish something just for myself so I'm excited. It's to wear to a wedding on 7th June and I still have to make the dress to go under it. As beautiful as it is, I don't think the bride and groom would appreciate that look!

The vintage bear was designed by my friend Clare of Clare Bears and Serious Stamp fame. He's a knitted version of her gorgeous, sewn, teddy bears.

I've been working on the pattern and knitting him a friend. It's going to be quite a complicated pattern but I think all the extra shaping is what gives him his charm.  So far he has a body and most of his head.

Just ears, arms and legs to go and some assembling. I have made a bit of a boo boo. I've sewed up the body completely without adding the joints in. I'm going to have to do some teddy surgery.

Back to work, I have a lot of boxes to unpack. Pop over to Tami's Amis to see what everyone else is getting up to.


  1. Shawl is gorgeous! I ran off to buy the pattern. Love the bear, I am working on an elephant at the moment. Best regards.

  3. Love the colors of the shawl (and the design, too)! The bears look great as well!

  4. Gorgeous shawl, and I absolutely love that yarn! Am knitting some socks in it myself, and I can't get over how soft it is!
