WIP - Knitting & Crochet

It feels like I have only been doing knitting lately but I thought I would share two (out of three) projects that I have going at the moment. I don't know how I have managed to have three projects on the go. Well maybe I do (o_O)

Here's where I am up to with the hexagon puff stitch blanket. I have to say that I am really pleased with this one. It's looking really, really nice. I'm loving how it's sitting so flat after I have sewn each piece together.

My second project, which isn't pictured, is the Spotlight squares. You can find this week's block HERE. We're up to week 11 this week. I still haven't managed to make up last weeks square. I've been too busy concentrating on my nieces vest.

Finally, the project that I am working on at the moment is a black sleeveless vest for my niece. It's taking a lot longer to finish than I would like. I've been getting pins and needles in my left hand whenever I knit more than a few rows at a time. So I've had to put it down for a few minutes so that I can get rid of the pins and needles. It's funny how that doesn't happen when I crochet though. Only when I am knitting. Perhaps I need to give knitting away (+_+) we'll see ...

What do you have on your hook or needles at the moment?

What nice projects, Jo!Especially the hexagon blanket..And pins and needles. Yet another reason to crochet instead! ^_^ ...By the way, the new square looks a lot like square # 6!

Poetess, that was my thinking. Crochet has so many more bonuses these days. Not only is it fast to complete I don't get pins & needles. Definitely worth thinking over :)

I thought that #11 did look similar to #6 & boy did I struggle with that one :(
