WIP Wednesday


Recommended Posts

Well, let's see!



I'm working on a bath set - poof (done), face scrubber (done), soap saver (done). Still need white hand towel that I want to put a topper on with a flower to match the poof & a washcloth. I have to work with my cotton yarn while I am waiting for the dishcloth & kitchen swaps to start :lol


Trying to finish up 3 more preemie sets: onsies are done, booties just need to be sewn together & I still need to make 2 hats. I am giving them to Sally on Sunday (guess they will be done by then,:think:lol )


Still working on my current stars & stripes blanket for the Blankey Brigade (I got side tracked with the preemie stuff).


Wrist bag - it is half done!


Finished :


The wedding afghan is done, yeah:cheer

2 preemie outfits - onesies, booties & matching hats

3 bookmarkers (the spin off pattern for the Nor. filet one)

2 snuggles


Oh well, that is enough to make is sound like I am doing something:lol

Wow! Some of you have quite a list of WIPs. I'm currently working on 2 baby blankets, a doily, and an afghan that's taking forever, but I'm about to get sidetracked again by another bath pouf for my sister's birthday next week.

I'm about halfway on the babyghan and I have the first 2 rows of squares and the pocket done on the pillowghan so I have 4 more rows of squares to do on that. It was much easier I think to go ahead and put the pillow pocket on before the ghan is finished.


I still haven't done anything on the 63 squares, think I'll pick that up after the baby stuff and pillowghan.


I'm tempted to leave the Star afghan the way it is and give it to my friend also, we'll see.

I'm STILL working on the white baby blanket! I don't know if I'll ever be finished with this one.


I want to make my husband's grandmother an afghan because she's such a nice lady. I found a pattern last night and I want to buy the yarn today.


I purchased some chenille cotton online (thanks ThreeOliveMartini!) and I hope it comes this week so I can make some washcloths.


On the upside, I did finish MommaChelle's halter for my 2 1/2 year old and I cleaned out my WIP basket. It had leftover skeins from the last three projects, and now I have room for new projects. :) However, I should probably finish the baby blanket first!

Still a bunch of flowers to finish, maybe embellish.

New flower style, still to be worked out.

Diamond mesh scarf started a couple of days ago and looking as if I might be able to finish it today.

Scrumble--stalled for now, but I'm thinking about it.

Here I go again


1. The monkey, still unchanged. I think I'll end up frogging it soon.

2. The Sweet February Shawl. Which is on hold for now.

3. Diamond and Lace poncho. Need more yarn still, so it's on hold too.

4. The Bernat Boa poncho. Yep, still need yet more yarn.

5. The crochet tote I've been designing is on hold until I finish project number 6.

6. A knitted sweater for a co-worker. It's a cabled sweater in Red Heart Supersaver, color "Country Blue"

Afghan for my boyfriend's birthday, in Mainstays Dark Sage, using the pattern that came with the yarn (Diamond Trellis).


I had also planned to make Priscilla's Masquerade Mask but after frogging it 3 or 4 times because the eyeholes were uneven, I decided to give up.

Been working on the "plastic yarn" goose dress. Think I have the pattern down pat, but making another to be sure. Then to write it out so others can understand LOL I know what it is..but will they?

I'm about halfway through with the blanket for my husband's dear grandmother. Even though I've had frustrations with it, it's actually an easy pattern that works up pretty quickly.


I haven't picked up my white baby blanket in a week.


I want to make more slippers for my mother to send in her mother's day package later this week.


I am stuck with 50 ounces of Lion Brand thick and quick chenille in Black that I really want to get out of my stash, but I don't know what to make. I'll consider thinking about projects for that a WIP.

^Does that mean you frogged an afghan or that you're making a frog afghan? I'd love to find a frog afghan pattern :heart


My report:


I've made 2 star cuddles for the Humane Society and have another in the works. I'm also going to try a couple of other different patterns and see what works and what doesn't.


I'm just about another row in on my pineapple pillowghan


I'm a little over halfway on the babyghan


Need to finish those last 2 in a hurry so they're priority


No more socks


No more 63 squares


I'll get to those after completing my hurry up afghans ;)

There's a toad one in the current Herrschners 2005 afghan winners... kinda silly but also kinda cute. :)

My list is still growing, to go with the projects previously listed I've now added...


A poncho using Paton's "Grace" and an F hook.


I must finish the projects before I buy more yarn for myself. (I'll try to be good this week).

That is cute but I don't have that kind of money to buy kits. I did find a knitted chart for one that can be converted to crochet that might work.




I'll call that a WIM ;)
