Hi, my name is Elaine and I’m addicted to crochet. It’s taken a while for me to realise but, in the end, it wasn’t too hard to admit and I don’t want to be cured, nor do I expect a great deal of sympathy from this forum! The main problem I have, however, is that I keep starting new projects before I’ve finished the last one(s). I see a new pattern or a new yarn and off I go again! As a result I have a large pile of UnFinished Objects (UFOs) and Works In Progress (WIPs). Something needs to be done. I thought if I blogged about the progress I’m making with some of these UFOs, maybe I’ll get to finish them. So, here are photos of just some of the projects I have on the go at the moment – I’d be too embarrassed to show you all of them – and I’ll post photos of my progress on each as I go along. I’m sure more will be added over time; this could be a never-ending story!
Whilst this might be a personal blog, I don’t believe I’m the only one here with this condition. Can we help and encourage each other? I could use some support from fellow addicts – both knitters and crocheters. If your WIPs are getting a bit out of control, why not join me in this personal challenge and let’s see if we can make a bit of room in our closets and cupboards.
Beautiful squares, Elaine....you'll get there......we'll be cheering you on!!!
GUILTY AS CHARGED - me that is!!!!
Come on Pam, don't be shy, give us some details about your WIPs!!
It's so nice to know that I'm not the only one with a cupboard full of UFO's and WIP's. Funnily enough I made the decision a couple of weeks ago to finish the projects I had started before moving on to anything else. I had to clear the spare room for visitors and was put to shame at the amount of items needing to be finished. So far I have completed one slipover and am approx 3 inches away from finishing a go-over. Keep up the good work Elaine, I'm right there with you!
It would be great if you could post some photos Claire - I'd love to see someone else finishing some WIPs - it'll keep me motivated!
Just a few items I'm working my way through at the moment.
CLAIRE'S UFO's & WIP's
Looking good Claire - do I spy some jumpers that just need to have the seams sewn up?!!
Thats right Elaine, I had put them down with just a few rows left to knit so now it's just seams to sew up. Good old mum comes in very handy for that part.
