WIP Wednesday


Recommended Posts

Ack, Kari, don't talk about Christmas presents yet :eek I know I need to get busy but I am sooo not ready.

 

1. Daughter's afghan - DONE

2. Best friend's T&Q chenille afghan - ok, I don't like working with this stuff, no matter how wonderful it works up. 2/3 done and having to force myself to make progress :angry Never Again.

3. Inspired scarf - DONE

4. Kate's ripple afghan - got about 30" into it and :frog :frog ... just wasn't happy with it. Scratch this one.

5. Cathedral window afghan (still on hold, still looking at alternate color choices)

6. String bag x 2 - DONE

7. Round ripple baby afghan - DONE

8. Squares for Dman's comfortghan - DONE

9. Fisherman's crochet afghan for Mom (this one's going to be a long-term project!) - foundation row done and untouched since last week!

10. 14/35 Squares for the Random Square Swap

11. Draped Bedjacket for my daughter - started

12. Yet Another Baby Afghan - bought yarn, need to decide pattern, our friends need to stop getting pregnant already!

13. Housewarning gifts for friend - started a crocheted basket (barely!), chose yarn and pattern for afghan and ordered yarn.

 

I've had Family Issues this week, daughter's in hospital again (chronic health problems), son's roommate situation in college fell apart. Haven't gotten nearly as much crocheting done as I wanted. I'm doing well at stressing out, though :(

It's been a non-productive week. Whenever I get a free minute I'm torn, do I crochet or read another chapter in the new HP book?:think

 

Baby Blanket - 3/4 of body done, still needs edging

Black Shawl - bought yarn to finish - almost 1/2 done,

Open Lace Scarf - I looked at the yarn again. :blush

Blanket for Daughter - Bought yarn, still hunting for a pattern

CHRISTMAS?!?!?!? I can't even go there yet. I have some yarn bought for Christmas and a few ideas, but nothing major yet.

 

I need a nanny and a cook, and a maid so I can do nothing but play with the kids and crochet all day!:hook

I feel your pain - decisions/decisions. Crochet or HP or A good yarn (reading both right now). I've decided that from the hours of 8-11 (1 hour for crochet - 1 hour for HP and 1 hour for A good yarn)

 

Haven't exactly kept to that schedule -but I am trying.

Wow. Is it Wednesday already?

 

1. STILL working on the blanket for my kids. Only 3 more squares to go.

2. Halter top for oldest daughter.

3. Hat for youngest daughter.

4. Doily

 

Frogged the halter top. Even after placing it up to her bare skin to make sure it fit, when I finished she says, "It's scratchy." :thair So I frogged it and was going to make her a headband. But because she's got an attitude right now, I've put it on hold.

 

The hat is finished.

I have been working on a gift for my mother for the holidays. Let's just say progress has been extremely slow. You can read about it on my blog.

 

I'm not reading HP, but since I'm on vacation this week, I've been catching up on reading and crocheting. I finished one project so far this week, a backpack for my DD's friend's birthday this weekend.

Okay, time for me to take a minute to brag that my hubby is reading it to me while I crochet. :devil

Please don't remind me of all the WIPs I have. I get sick just thinking about it. When I do have time to crochet, what do I do? Start a NEW project instead of working on my WIPs. But basically, I still have the same WIPs that I posted on before. :rofl I need someone to :kick me into finishing my WIPs. :devil
