A WIM is a work in mind - you know when you buy that yarn because in your head you have a vague idea of what you need it for ;)? That's a WIM. WIP is a work in progress.

 

A crochet along is a thread for a group of people who decide to all crochet the same thing. They chat and encourage each other to keep going, posting pictures as they progress.

Some people call WIPs PIGs, projects in grocery sacks. When they're done they become HAMS, have actually made something.

I'm thinking you mean kitschy? I could be wrong and kitchy may be something else entirely. If I'm right though, it means cheesy/campy/ironic, that sort of thing. For instance, garden gnomes, pink flamingos, and super frilly 50's style aprons would be considered kitschy. I hope that made sense!

There's a Kitsch CAL if you want some ideas. It also means homeade or overly cute.

 

A toilet paper cover or a camera case that looks like a camera are good examples of kitsch. The older women in my family LOVED kitsch and crocheted little items for just about everything around the house.

 

My Mother has hot pink and apple green 'have a nice day' smiley face potholders hanging on the cabinets in the kitchen. Those are a little much for me but she loves them! My grandmother made them 60 years ago. (They're for show only now)
