W.I.P. Wednesday

It's time for another edition of Work In Progress Wednesday!

I'm actually going to give a sneak peek of a gift I'm making for someone special. 

It's my first attempt at a pattern considered Expert and while I'm able to accomplish it, I still would not classify myself as an expert by any means! LOL

I'm making a Tree of Life Blanket. I'm using Caron Simply Soft Bone color instead of the recommended Lion Brand Wool Ease so I'm pretty sure it will be a tad smaller than the original, but still nice to throw on the back of a couch and cuddle with.

Here are some pics of where it's at currently:

And, yes, I've made mistakes, but they're only noticeable to me and any actual expert so I left them in. Makes it completely original, right? :o)

I'm also working on this for my hubby. It will (crossing fingers) eventually be a shawl. I've no pattern except for the Batman logo chart which I found after someone shared these awesome potholders. The rest I'm making up as I go along. This was my first time carrying colors and was a valuable experience as I could definitely do better next time. :o) But he likes it so far and that's really all that matters!

I shipped off the baby gifts I had made and they've been received by their recipients so I'll share some of those finished pics.

I will be adding sets like these to the shop as I can (I really wish I had more hands or time LOL). 

That's been it for me for April. Looking forward to adding more hats to the shop (scored some really awesome patterns!) and possibly some of my Frank N Monkeys. Enjoy your Wednesday!

I like the color you're using for the tree of life afghan better than the demo color on Lion Brand's site. Great batman too! Looks like you've been busy. Thanks for sharing on my WIP Wednesday.
