WiP Wednesday

Hi all!  So it’s not a WiP anymore, aside from blocking the thing – but here’s my blob of Bugga lace ready to be blocked:

Camp Loopy shawl ready to be blocked

I should have a nicely blocked shawl to show you on Friday!  I can’t wait to block the squishy thing and see it in all it’s glory.  And then permanently attach it to my shoulders. 🙂

Since I finished it last night, I have a new WiP to show you today.

Brace yourselves…

Gasp!! Two large holes!!

It’s my Hemlock Blanket that I finished back in 2008.  It’s place of honor is on the back of our wingback chair in the living room.  I pull it off in the winter to cover my legs when it’s gets chilly in the house.  Evidently it sat for a bit too long here recently without being moved and something got to it.  I’m assuming a carpet beetle, which I get in the house once in a while despite all my efforts to exterminate the buggers.  (Don’t worry, my stash is safely stored in thick plastic bags and is sorted through and examined several times a year.)

They ate a chunk out of the edging too!

My WiP for today is to try to fix it.  (And then to spray bug-killer around the perimeter of the house again!)  Wish me luck!!

Check out some other (and hopefully more pleasant!) WiPs over at Tami’s Amis.

  1. That is one amazingly beautiful lace-blob, even unblocked. I can’t wait to see it after the blocking magic happens.

    And yikes, sorry about the beetle damage! 🙁
