I was at my mom's last night and I pulled my yarn basket I keep over there out of her closet and, sure enough, there was a gorgeous afghan WIP staring me in the face. I guess I am going to have to start crocheting more when I am over visiting her... :sigh

Very nice soap, I may add. Congrats on not adding to the WIP pile. I consider that a victory.

I know it will get worse though since one of my friends just had a baby. :) My goal this week is to finish a project. :)

Hooray for crocheting for a baby! I hope you will post pictures of your items. Is it a girl of a boy? What fun! This is a perfectly wonderful excuse to increase your WIPs, and since babies grow so fast, you need to finish them, so they won't be WIPs for long!

What colors? What type of yarn? What pattern? Do you visit your mother often? Mine is 3 states away -- kind of hard to pop over there just for a cup of coffee.

Baby boy! :) He's so cute! I'm making washcloths, mittens and booties. :)

I frogged one of my old wips today. I'm not sure that it counts at all because I didn't finish it, but at least it is one less wip staring me in the face and I can find another use for the yarn. :)

Sorry i didn't answer sooner. YES! It counts. Any way you get rid of a WIP counts.

 

I have progressed on my ever-so-big afghan. My count stays where it was earlier: WTD started: 3; finished: 2

YTD started: 10; finished 9

I haven't gotten very far because I'm under fire to finish a quilting project that I've been hand piecing. The hand piecing should be done next week, so I can pick up crocheting again (I'm machine quilting it). I'm thinking that I will work on the Ladybug afghan first. It is closest to being done - requires attaching of ladybugs and assembly of blocks, then final border.

Hello friends!

 

Can I just say, thank you for the motivation! I hop on here and read about all of your progress,...and it just makes me want to finish something that has been lying around.

 

Stephanie-I took a peek at your quilt, amazing! love your blog too!

 

Beth-you completed 10 projects? wow!

 

Ally-great job finishing the baby ghan and a hat to match, awesome!

 

Kraftyncrazy-that is so neat that you have projects at your mom's house. great idea!

 

MrsForest-do you have favorite patterns that you use for your baby booties, mittens and such? my twin sister is expecting twins...have to get busy busy busy!

 

here's a pic of the Knook Scarf,...took me a loooong time to finish. It is similar to knitting with a crochet hook, for me very time consuming, but I did finally learn how to do the "knit stitch".

 

 

Here's my score:

YTD Started 1

YTD Finished 2

hugs n squishes!

Whoo-hoo!:cheer I finished my jolly green afghan. It is about 7'6" long and 4'6" wide. It was my first "straight" ripple, since I tend to make round ripples. It's made from Loops and Threads Charisma yarn in brown, and Bernat Harmony in Tapestry Green. It covers the top of my full-sized bed nicely, so it will be plenty big for his single-sized bed.

We never said that the projects had to be crochet projects. I think we should include anything, crochet, knitting, beading, cross stitching, scrapbooking, gardening, any project that you've started and need to finish.

 

What do you think?

Well, I think that would be nice to be able to record other craft projects. I am cross stitching a wedding sampler for my son for almost 2 years.. I am working on a scarf/wrap for a niece. The scarf uses lace weight wool. It is kind of small and difficult to work with. I have been working on it for over a year and a half. I just keep putting them down and staring new easier projects.

Beth has helped me figure out more than one crochet pattern. She is as nice in person as she is on line.:)

Guess what? I'm almost done with my other afghan! It's not going to be very big. It's a round ripple kit from Herrschners. I have 3 or 4 more 50 gram balls to use (out of 16) and they go fast. Of course, I have a bunch of WIM's (work in mind) that I can't wait to start! But the Bernat Mystery CAL will be my first priority.
