I’m taking a page from some of my fellow craft bloggers and creating a regular feature on my blog, Work in Progress (WIP) Wednesday. For this first week, I have a plethora of projects to post, so lets get started!
Back in May I started two thread crochet projects, both of which were designed by Grace Fearon from Emily and the Handmade. The first pattern is Winter. I love the look of the completed doily, but I got stuck on round 10, and I haven’t had time to go back to work on it yet. The other is Evelyn which started out as a crochet along, but I fell behind early on and have been working on other projects, so coincidentally I haven’t progressed past round 10 on it either.
Next up is the knitted Feather and Fan shawl that I started a few weeks ago. Once again, I haven’t done much (or anything) with it since posting about it back when I first started it. I’m hoping posting my WIPs will get me motivated to work more on these projects so that I can get them finished and move on to new things.
Next up is a project that I came across which was stuck in a box for a few years. I had completely forgotten about this project until I found it while doing some decluttering. I think I started it back when I was on a break from school a few years ago, and then when I was back in class, I forgot about it. The pattern is called Alluring, and is from the pattern book Big Book of Quick Knit Afghans by Leisure Arts.
I’m also working on a crocheted afghan, the Hypnotic Tiles afghan designed by Mikey from The Crochet Crowd. This one is a gift for my cousin, so I’ve been working on it the most. In fact, since I took this picture I’ve added 2 or 3 tiles to it. The full afghan will be 4×6 tiles, then I have to add the border.
Finally, we come to my latest (and last) project, the Pins and Stripes quilt from the crochet along that Tracey at It’s a T-Sweets Day was hosting. She has completed the lessons now, but as usual, I’m a bit behind, so I’m just starting lesson 5 of 7. Here is a preview of how my quilt will look once I sew the squares together. Although I’m making progress on this one, I’m afraid it will take me a few more weeks to complete it.
That’s it for my first WIP Wednesday post. I probably should get one or two of these completed before starting something new, but I bought a new sewing machine a few weeks ago, and I want to play with it so I’m not sure I can resist a new project. Right now I’m using my old machine for my quilt since it’s what I started it with, and I’m already used to it’s quirks.
I’m curious, how many projects do you have on the go? If you have multiple, are they all the same type of craft? Do you try to set a limit on the number of projects you have on the go at one time?
