A Shawl with gorgeously soft yarn, a little crochet purse, a blanket, and way too many ideas in my head to list here. Are any of you the same? do you have more than one thing on the go or are you more methodical and complete one item before moving on to the next?
I like to have something easy to pick up when I am tired and also something a bit more challenging on the go. Since I have started blogging and pinning I have seen so many fantastic ideas. My head and notebook are full of ideas and I keep finding more. I guess this is good in a way because I am trying to make as many gifts as I can this year (and that’s a lot of making!) but this also means that I am putting my owl and flower granny blanket to one side again and again. I love this blanket but just don’t seem to be getting it done – as you had probably gathered already!! – It sits in its bag and hardly gets touched from one week to the next, there is always something just a bit more exciting or with a deadline to be done.
After reading Nicoles post about Keep calm and Craft on I decided to join in and share what I have on the go at the moment. I am hoping that perhaps this will make me get on and get them finished!
I only started the purse today but that is for a birthday I had overlooked next week..Not sure how it will turn out as I have never used a clasp like this before an I don’t have a pattern. Maybe rather silly with only a week to go, or maybe just completely mad??? so this will have to be a priority!
The shawl (click here for pattern) is for a wedding, next week too but I am waiting for more yarn to arrive. It hasn’t worked up as long as I thought it would, it is one of those patterns where you can decide how long you want to keep going before adding the border. Anyhow, what I bought initially was discounted and that was all there was in the shop but I have found some the same on ebay and I am just hoping that the dye lot is not too different. It will be used for the border so hopefully any difference won’t show too much!
Abi has asked me to make a necklace for one of her friends, also for next week. She is so, so, busy with coursework, so she hasn’t got the time to do it herself so I shall really enjoy being able to help her. I’m looking forward to getting my beads out again, I’m just hoping I can get it all done!!
aagh, and I still haven’t started the children’s stocking pressies 😦
So what are your WIP’s and do you have several or like me, one that you keep pushing to the back of the queue?
Happy Crafting All.!! x
