Work-in-Progress Wednesday 25


It has been a little while since I've linked up for a WIP Wednesday.  Crazy schedule plus a couple top secret projects have kept me away, but I now have some fun finished objects to share soon.  This is the start of a little baby cocoon that I am adding to a gift for a friend's baby shower.  The yarn is so soft and cuddly.  The book is an attempt to get me reading again.  Reading books I have at home (and therefore no return date) hasn't pushed me to get reading.  I heard about this book through a blog write I like mentioning how much she was enjoying it (on twitter), so checked it out of the library.  I'm only one chapter in, but it's been nice to be reading again!


Joining up with Yarn Along at Small Things & WIP Wednesday at Tami's Amis.

That looks like a great book...I love the cover photo. We have had lots of dandelions in our yard, which I love when they are yellow, and even in the puff stage, but when they are barren and just TALL stalks standing 6 inches above the grass line, they look crazy!

Oooh, the cocoon sounds like a fun project.

Ellen said...

I just put this book on my library list...when I have time to read, it sounds interesting.

The yarn for the cocoon does look very soft and cuddly! I just want to give it a squeeze! :-D

Kathleen said...

That cocoon looks fantastic, so sweet and fluffy and interesting, even in plain white. What yarn is it?

And I am with you 100% on it just being nice to read again---and sometimes a deadline does help! I just spent Sunday cuddled up reading a mystery for an embarrassing number of hours because it had to be returned to the library on Monday...

Your project looks wonderfully soft! I like your book, I am discussing dandelions and their uses tomorrow on my Kitchen Krafts - so it was rather interesting to see that as a title on my blog browse!

The yarn is Bernat Baby Blanket. It's almost like a soft, fluffy pipe cleaner. :-)

Baby cocoons are awesome gifts! The books makes me curious. I think I'll go look it up.
