Last week I shared my knitting WIP shame. As promised here it my Crochet WIP list. This list is MUCH shorter (yay!) but I still feel a little shame-faced!
Exhibit 1 (m’lud)
What is it?: This a blanket that I use every day, even though its not finished. It still has the ends that need weaving in and it has 22 rows and a border left to do on it.
Pattern: Cosy Stripe Blanket
Started: December 2016
My excuse for not finishing: It works as a blanket already and its not that interesting to crochet. It was also too hot to crochet a blanket in the summer!
Plan: Maybe I should crochet a row or two whilst I’m using it as a blanket. I could get it finished in a few weeks I think! I have other WIP I want to finish first though!
Target: To be completed by January 2018
What is it?: This is a shawl pattern released by Scheepjes, week by week as part of a “Crochet-Along (CAL)”
Started: February 2017
My excuse for not finishing: I really enjoyed the excitement of getting a new part of the pattern each week and looking at what everyone else was making. Unfortunately I got a bit behind and when there were no more patterns to “hurry-up and finish this week for” I got bored. BLIMEY! this post is really telling on my psyche! I think a psychologist would have a field day with me!! hahaha!
Plan: I only had about 5 more rows and a border to go. I will finish this at some point but right now I’m not that excited about using it. It is super beautiful though!
Target: February 2018
What is it?: Another blanket….
Pattern: Last Dance on the Beach (Last Dance in the Rain colours) by Scheepjes
Started: February 2017
My excuse for not finishing: This is one that i periodically pick up and do a few squares on. I’m excited to have it finished but it doesn’t fuel my quest to learn new stuff so I only do a couple of squares at once.
Plan: I think this is a good winter project. I should aim to get this done by Christmas I think!!!
Target: December 2017
End with some good news
The scarf that I wrote about in my Knitting WIP post has been finished! 🙂 🙂 I messed up the join a little bit, but it is warm and snuggly. Only time will tell whether I will wear it but its been finished at least! WIP Graveyard has started shrinking!
So what about you?
So…are you a WIP-horder or are you super disciplined about your crochet projects??
If you’re a horder, help me out and share your shame too! I dare you to share your WIP shame in your own post…!!
If you’re super disciplined, share your secret! 🙂
