How Many WIPs Do You Have Going???

Recommended Posts

I used to have 6 or 7 going at once. Then I got burned out for awhile. Now I won't let myself start the next one until I finish the one I'm working on. It's been making me get the one I'm on done faster because I get bored and want to do a new one.

I only work on one project at a time. That way, I can focus all of my energy on that project and I usually finish it faster because I want to move on to something new.

Since I'm only making small things for a fair I've got about 5 that I'm working on right now, a dozen or more sitting around waiting to be finished and ideas for another 20 sitting in my head or on bits of paper around the place :lol Right now I have about 10 bookmarks that need assembling, a beach bag, some stress balls for my parents and a few coin purses that really need doing :hook

I have a laundry list of "This is what I want to do next" things once I get caught up.

 

Currently, I have 3 projects going:

1. A pair of thread booties for a boy. I got the bib and bonnet done, but I've put the booties off for months because I got bored and was dying for a new project. I've got to get back to this soon. I'm about halfway done with bootie #1.

 

2. a girl's totebag with a kitty on the front. I shouldn't have started it, but the other day the urge took over. I'm about 1/4 way done on the font side.

 

3. a girl's sweatshirt with fun fur trim. Cut out the sweatshirt and went on to something else. It really will not take long, so all I need to do is sit down and finish it.

 

As you can see, I'm really on a roll for doing children's things. I've also got a few sewing projects in the works too, so I really, really need to get busy. Sad thing is, most of them are almost done, but I'm so eager to get to the next one I neglect what I'm currently working on.

Hmmm, let's see I have going on: the "Stacy" top from Cool Crochet, the "Eden" sweater (Moda Dea free pattern), and a scarf which is really a practice knitting project. I hope to finsh Satcy this week so I can get started on the Pennina Jacket.

 

The eden sweater is my "take-to work" project. I work on it during slow periods here at the dorm.

 

This weekend my best friend and I are going to attempt crocheting with wire and beads...after a shopping binge at Jo-Ann!:clap

I can multi-task at work, but am not so able to do it with crochet very well. Yet. So at present I only have 1 WIP, it's a granny square afghan in homespun (an experiment). But I plan to start another one tonight, another baby hat to donate. We'll see how that goes. :D

I have two right now. A blue afghan for the new baby on the block and a block afghan for the county fair. :)

 

I usually have at least three or more, but I have been working hard getting things done instead of making new projects.

*Barbie living room furniture in plastic canvas (about 35% complete)

*Piglet applique baby blanket for Project Linus (just started today - I was having a stressful day and just needed to start with something new)

Frogged my LHOTP shawl. Decided that I just really wouldn't end up wearing it and I don't want to spend all that time making it and it not get any use.

 

I have made so many dishcloths and bath sets..... time to move on.

 

 

New WIP's:

 

Poncho for all 4 of my girls teachers.

 

Wrist Warmers

I have oodles of WIPs it seems like!

 

The ones I can think of off the top of my head:

 

Frog Princess Doudou

Baby Blanket

2 afghans

2 Shawls (one is going to be frogged though)

About 4 different snowflakes

Several animals

2 scarves

1 hat

 

Several other miscellaneous "quick and easy" projects that have been abandoned in various locations around my apartment....it is starting to look like a WIP graveyard in there as some are now hosting their own personal dust bunnies!

Lapghan for son, scarf for the lady that sells me my lotto tickets (she is always bundled up with a heavy coat in the store and never has anything on her neck) and I'm starting a poncho and starting a scrubbie dishcloth with another (our own little crochet along) as soon as my homespun and cotton arrive.
