Projects//WIP Wednesday

Wow Wednesday again already, thanks so much for the lovely comments about Franchesca - my sister has really fallen in love with her, so I'm happy.
Anyway on to this week's WIP's - most of my projects haven't moved on but I have finished my Mary Jane slippers (more about them on Friday). My owlie shawl has a few more rows and is starting to grow a little bit more each week:

 I decided I was going to start something new for knit night, the Pluviôse mitts over on Ravelry - they are gorgeous and nice and easy but as you can see from the picture below I haven't started them at all but I have chosen the yarn:
 I ended up finishing my slippers up at knit night, I was so close to finishing the 2nd one and one of the ladies taught me how to ladder stitch, so now I know how to sew up nice neat edges - so I'm glad I decided to take my slippers and not start the mitts.
I have also started a new project, the ribbed baby jacket - this is a super cute knit and quite easy so far although I've read through the comments on ravelry and there appears to be a problem with the sleeve length so I'll need to keep an eye out for that. I chose a royal blue as I thought it would be cute on a boy, especially as I'm knitting it for a first birthday:
Go check out Tami's blog to see what everyone else is working on this week - I love having a look at other people's projects, I think it's the nosy in me.
Have a great Wednesday,
