WIP Wednesday


Recommended Posts

WIP.gif I've decided that I am going to report on my Works In Progress on Wednesdays each week. Snag the button, post in on your blog and join me... won't you?


This week I am working on:

1) scarf for myself using the luscious Italian yarn I bought before Christmas and black TLC Amore - nearly finished :fluffy

2) decorative pillow for my grandma - 1/6th finished (small hooks and tiny yarn... I keep putting this project down. :frog )

3) shawl - for my supervisor's birthday.. I better hurry and get it done. It's next week! :eek2

4) 63 Square Afghan - :ha I don't know if I will EVER finish this one! (I think I have 23 squares finished?)

5) Grey wool bag/purse - I am currently waiting for yarn to arrive... JoAnn's has gotten two shipments of yarn.. but never the yarn I need to finish! I am hoping :fc that the yarn ordered via the internet have dye lots are not too different from what I have. I really want to get this baby into the washing machine. FELT FELT FELT! :loco

Fun! Its technically Thursday, but its close enough :)


1) Basketweave scarf for myself out of Plymouth Indecieta Alpaca, yum. I'd really like to get this finished up by Sunday so its really my main focus. I absolutely love the stitch, but it is slow going.

2) I might possibly start my son's ripple afghan, but I'm looking through an afghan book and seeing if there is a different quickie pattern to try.

Eek its Friday..:lol


Gosh this week I've been trying to figure out what i'm gonna include in my Spring/Summer catalog, and which yarn I'm gonna use. Its been hard finding the yarn, cause I want to use cotton, but not sport weight. I think I've settled on Lily's /sugar and cream. I wish it was more like Lion Brand's Cotton Ease cause that's a blend, and will cut down on shrinkage...but they don't have the colors that I'm looking for..*sigh*


Also, I've been trying to convert another pattern that is knitted, hope I've learned from the last time enough to make fewer mistakes this time. I'm gonna get some yarn this weekend.


My friend is opening up a spa and she said she will carry my crocheted items, so I'm very excited about it. She said that she wants to carry my stuff and without cost!!! So yay! I've been in kinda a crochet-slump. I have several projects to fringe, and weave in ends, wash and mail them. When I'm done all of them, then I'll get started on new stuff!


Projects to finish:

1- ponchos for daughters, just simple granny stitch.

2- two chemo hats made from cara mia

3- flower stitch shawl, need to fringe and weave in ends...

4- fun fur hat and fingerless gloves

5 - berroco suede poncho


wish me luck gah! :lol:coffee

I have finished two ponchos and a hat. I finished my another sweater, but with very cool novelty yarn (gray with black, red, yellow and white flecks) and now working on a mini-boa scarf to go with it only adding some thin black chenille.

Also working on a thin chenille poncho.........well, we'll see......I am too bored......I always have to be crocheting something! :bow

Well it's not Wednesday :blush but as slow as I'm going this week it could still be.


I made a capelet and accidently tore it out at the wrong spot :oops and I've started it again a couple of times but keep frogging. I'm on the second row :fc Maybe I'll get it like I want soon.


I'm also making a wrap out of Wrapped in Style:)h But I started it in symphony red heart and it was way too long:eek so frogged it and that stuff is hard to frog :eek2 Now I'm back at it , it should go well now.
