WOYWW #190 - two slippers, half a sock and a wrist warmer

Wednesday. Yes I did get a small reminder from Brenda (thank you) and here I am, showing you my desk as per the What's on your Workdesk Wednesday gang.

My desk.......

Oh look, the Chocolate is still there. My sock (still in exactly the same state as last week, whoops). A new wrist warmer for the other hand (the instructions, which were supposed to be for a beginner wanting a challenge, are difficult. For the other hand it says, reverse the instructions - easier said than done). Tape measure. Nanny Slippers - awaiting a Pom Pom.

There is a borrowed pattern for some more wrist warmers, my mints, a mug full of needles, crotchet hooks and scissors. Sewing box with my boys' Cubs/Beavers uniforms and badges waiting to be sewn on. New wool and a gorgeous case full of shiny new crochet hooks. (Christmas Present from Huffle).

Ooooh I like shiny things.

I will hopefully be desk-hopping tomorrow but as usual I have an excuse (visitor from London, England). Actually she has asked me to teach her to crochet so maybe she will be on my table next week ha ha ha.

Beat this a tin of polish and a duster in the same place for over 2 weeks. A Hoover in the same spot for 3 weeks. Ironing in a pile for a century. I need a cleaner or stop crafting

Loads on the go! I started a new pair of socks, finished the rib and then thought, I could do wristwarmers or fingerless gloves instead but thought better of it when I read about them! Not ready for that yet. Love the colour of the slippers and those lovely hooks, some of my dpns are similar colours. Thanks again for the vote!

Love the knitting. Oh, and those patterns that say they are for beginners but are more difficult. The slippers look great.

Those crochet hooks look nice and shiny indeed. Love the case.

Do you know I'm starting to get a need to crochet again...and it will have to be on a fat hook because I like a fast result...will probably end up browsing interest for an idea and distract myself even more! Yo've got loads on the go - how do you decide which set of needles or hooks to pick up?!
