WIP Wednesday


Recommended Posts

Still working on the little girl's winter set for my 9 yo grandchild, just started on the second mitten yesterday. I might have been much further along, but spent all my time working on the Edwardian Shawl over the weekend and through Monday, and now it's off the wip list. I will continue to plug away at this winter set, even though it's going to be too late for her to wear it this season, will save it for a birthday present for her in September.


Homespun ripple ghan for bf - I plan to start making quick progress on this one starting this weekend now that I joined the ripple-along.


Mesh market bag using Lily Sugar & Cream cotton yarn, 80% done, just need to make the final push and finish this.


Fun fur-trimmed homespun cape, for a friend as payment for a favor given. About 20% into the project, not counting all the frogging. May be posting in the help section about this one. Since it's a suprise, I can't post about it on my blog.


My to-do list is out of control, but here's a few items I have planned for which all materials are on hand, the only thing lacking so far is the time to do them:


Blue and yellow toddler pullover sweater for a dear friend's son, who is now 15 months old, will make it for the 2 yo size, for fall wardrobe.


Tote bag made with homespun and chenille t&q, from a pattern out of Crochet! magazine.


socks, using the simple stripes yarn I recently got from Knitpicks. Since it will be my first effort, may start with an easy-looking pattern, such as the toe-up one I've seen mentioned several times here.


2 different shawl patterns, also using yarn from Knitpicks (Alpaca Cloud and Shimmer, both laceweight)


Sweater hat and scarf set using Caron's Jewelbox, also for lucky little Zoie, though I will have to try and modify the pattern a bit if she hits a growth spurt between now and fall. This was also from a pattern out of Crochet!


These are just the ones I can recall off the top of my head, but trust me - there's lots more where they came from! I've certainly got more enthusiasm than good sense here - either this stuff will take me a couple of years to do, or I'm going to learn to be a much faster crocheter than I ever thought possible. But I will eventually get them all done, I'm stubborn that way.


Well, went over the deadline while writing this, oh well! Would have had it done sooner, but I couldn't seem to help taking catnaps over my keyboard. I really have to try and get more sleep tonight, at least of the kind where my head is actually resting on a pillow instead of my chest!

:yawn :zzz

I haven't been having good luck with my crochet lately :(


In progress

afghan--almost 1/2 finished, haven't touched it in a couple of weeks

Homespun cloche--pretty sure I'm going to junk it until I feel comfortable enough to try Homespun again

did a row or two of the "Super simple trellis stitch" poncho last night, using Caron Simply Soft, but it's looking weird, so I might start over (no biggie since I just started)

Rolled brim hat from Lion website--ended up frogging it again last night, starting again tonight.

small felted pouch for my mom to carry her phone, keys, etc. on her daily walk; I'm going to have to frog this one too :(

camera pouch for my friend--just need to felt it, probably will wait until I felt my mom's too since they're the same color



Felted purse for a co-worker's daughter--just got the yarn from KnitPicks :)

Rectangular felted bag (for ME)

more book thongs

Doggie afghan for Preston (see him on my blog)

rolled brim hats for my SD's, once I get mine done, LOL

I gotta finish the ties for my boys for Sunday. I have one completed but realized it's probably too long. Wanted them to be surprises...but surprise, I gotta try it on one of them first. ARGH.


Well...hopefully I can get them finished by Friday as I would like to make a ponchette kinda thing for Jessie's Dress

Hmm, my WIP list is much shorter than ya'lls:


my first dog sweater is mostly done, but the neck and belly band still need to be made


a scarf for my niece (shhh--a Christmas present) made out of fun fur is 1/3 done


and I've bid on some wool on ebay for my first fulled bag (couldn't find any 100% wool here in town that I liked, so started surfing the web instead)

Mine this week: (Decided to not be lazy, and I will write them all out here, too):) :


-- An Evening Shawl (still)

-- A Rectangle Grannyghan (still)

-- Motif purse for my mom is still sitting there, need to crochet tog, then do handles...

-- But!... The "Spidey" Pillowghan is just about done! YEEEEE HAW! :P I have all the squares done, and sewn together, I am trying to sew the "Pillow" part on, sewed it on the front, that was wrong, sewed it on a different way, now I think I have it figured out (since I went and looked... duh..) I want to wait to ship it, though, until I can take a picture, and I'm supposed to be getting a digital camera soon, so....


That's about it.

Well let's see.....WIPs


1. Lion Suede Shawl I started yesterday and is almost finished.

2. Guardian Angel afghan I started a few months back that I put aside to work on other things

3. Sylvia Cosh sweater...put aside because the sleeves were giving me trouble


I'm one of those freakish people who can't stand something being left undone....I HAVE to finish a project or I lose interest in it but for some reason the afghan & sweater keep calling me to finish instead of frogging them. :blush

I'm still the same


1. Step-mom's shawl. changed pattern, now using the butterfly shawl pattern listed on this site.


2. The knitted poncho for my step-sister.


3. The crocheted monkey (I wonder where I got my name) for my sort of step-daughter.


4. I forgot a about the baby sweater that I have to finish off for a co-worker that is due at the beginning of May


The skirt has been frogged. The list of stuff to make is growing. Knitted Ear flap hat for a co-worker. Sweater for another co-worker. A poncho for my soon to be ex-manager.


Crocheted Monkey:devil
