I highly recommend posting a pic of your works in progress as a motivator - it really spurred me on to get mine finished!
I was doing so well…. The horns were looking good & the design for his feet was sorted. I realised that I’ve positioned the slip stitch leg gaps in the tendrils too far apart & Haggis would look very strange indeed with legs on either side of his body! Arrrrrrrrh!! So now I’m going to have to rip back over 100 tendrils to the start of the slip stitch leg gaps to re-position them closer together. For a nano second I considered just ignoring it but I know it would just bug me every time I look at him. So it breaks my heart but here I go……
I finally finished my aunt’s Asheville scarf. It is the widest scarf I have crocheted, I used an L hook and denim Jiffy yarn, but I really like the width and the way it turned out.
I am now working on my uncle’s scarf. It is going to be the exact same scarf, I think, but I am using an N hook and a navy Vanna’s Choice yarn. Here is the WIP:
We’ll see how it turns out!
Here’s another one of my WIPs. I had started it earlier this year but then set it aside to work on Inga Bags for Summer. I got the pattern because I especially liked the look of the hexagons. I guess I’d better get working on it now. It will make a nice fall/winter bag.
Okay guys, to keep us motivated with our Work In Progress theme, here’s an idea (thanks to kafferepet for this suggestion!) – we’ll have a mini Olympics of our own, where the only event is Crochet! The idea:
- Use an existing WIP (work in progress) or start a new one
- Post pics of your progress throughout the Olympics
- Your challenge is to complete your work by the closing ceremony of the games (August 24th)!
- You’re only competing against yourself and what you choose to make is up to you. Your items should be some kind of challenge though – it’s not impressive to complete a 1hr amigurumi in the next 17 days!
If you want to participate, post a pic of your WIP and then get crocheting! You can post more pics throughout the challenge to show us how you are progressing. And we can all cheer each other on as we get closer to the finish :)
Who’s up for the challenge?
Here’s a picture of the ripple I started in January, along with a few other projects. I really like it and am looking forward to working on it again, probably this fall. I can cover my lap and work on it at the same time when the cool crisp weather begins. Hope I can get it finished this year.
This one is a little bit harder than my first. For that one I used the Susan B pattern which gave me a lot of confidence-maybe too much. I don’t know how to describe the pattern in crochet terms but I have to alternate colors at times crocheting over the strand of color not being used. I did really get the hang of it but I probably should have never set it aside. Will have to teach myself all over again.
