I was also very enthused on the love for my TARDIS, so I will hopefully pick that one back up soon!!
And from now on, I will show you only actual progress made during the week.
This week has been a crochet-a-thon. I had a three hour train round trip on Sunday, perfect hooking conditions to work on my Blissful Flowers Shawl. I've pinned out a section of it here so you can see the pattern. It's natural state is bunched up, as per the picture to the right. This will be rectified in blocking I'm sure.
The best thing about this shawl is that the rows get shorter instead of longer. All the shawls I've made thus far get bigger as you go, so you don't feel the progress. This one is going to get super fun as the rows ger shorter! I am currently on motif 55 of 144 (~40%!!).

Ok, this next one is a newbie, but I'm not counting it as new because what I wanted was a set for a baby girl, and it became clear this one which I shared last week was going to be too big, and I am just not in the mood to faff about getting it the right size, ok? Jeez get off my back!
So instead I've selected this pattern for a baby set. There are a lot of pretty versions out there, though mainly just the cardi, but I am making the bonnet and booties too. Then the fun part - I get to satisfy my urge to make a ripple blanket by making a ripple baby blankie to match! It's slower going than I would usually like, I believe due to the 4 ply yarn, the 3mm hook and crocheting into the back loop, which I dont engage in very often. Purty though!!
