WIP Wednesday-29th March

This week has been a lot more productive than last, thank goodness! I’ve been much better at squeezing craft in between all the other jobs, sometimes I just don’t think I’ve got long enough to do one thing but really, if I just get on with it, I can do a surprising amount!

The baby blanket has had 6 and a bit rounds of shells added (but each shells round has 2 parts, a chains and v stitches round and then the shells themselves on the next round, so I’ve done 13 and a bit round really!) As it’s getting larger the rounds take longer, but when I get into it they whizz by.

I’ve also been spinning  again. The first attempt was terrible and fit for the bin, but attempt two was far better and will be saved until I can fill another spindle to ply it with. 

I’ve also been a bit naughty, broken my own rules and started a project for me. I’ve been feeling a bit grumpy lately and decided to make myself some new slippers. (I like them for wearing in the house even in summer!) I’ve only started on the sole so far. They seem like a good way to use up my leftover rainbow yarn.

The coming week will be filled with birthday card making, cake design (madam has requested an ‘elephant cake with frozen on’ for her third birthday), parties and then another craft project which may or may not work! 

What are you working on? What’s your maximum number of WIPs at any time?

Proudly linking up with Janine at Rainbow Hare and Wool on Sundays.

  1. That blanket is working up beautifully. I love the pattern. I’m making very slow progress on my Crazy Stripes cardigan at the moment, and don’t currently have any other active WIPs. That’s not to say there aren’t a few projects languishing in various states of unfinished-ness in several still-packed boxes of craft stuff. But we don’t talk about them.

    1. Thank you. No plans yet, I guess it depends how much I can make. Then I’ll find a project that requires that yardage. I quite fancy a hat or gloves for next winter. šŸ˜Š


  2. My usual number of WIPs is probably 4(ish. One of them is a SAL which gets worked on until it’s done, then a different project takes its proverbial place). But I certainly don’t mind starting one more if I feel the need, and feeling grumpy is definitely a need. I just keep a general limit on them otherwise I start getting stressed šŸ™‚

  3. I just love that blanket more and more every time I see it! You are going to make me add another WIP to my pile! LOL I am cross stitching on Ella and crocheting on my temperature blanket. I have I think 8 other cross stitch projects and am working my way to get back to one project at a time. Probably will never happen with all the new things that designers keep coming out with, but it’s a goal šŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you! Seems like a good goal if it keeps you motivated to finish. It’s not a WIP until you’ve opened the pack anyway so it doesn’t matter how many you buy šŸ˜‰


  4. All righty Mrs. Craft. I need some great ideas to use up leftover yarn…..and I am thinking your slippers might just be it! How do you make them? And what other ideas do you have for a leftover hodge podge of yarn?

    1. Oh my goodness, I’m such a bad yarn hoarder that I rarely use up leftovers! The slippers are a good way as you could use different yarn for the soles and uppers too. I quite like the granny blankets made using scraps too, especially the hexagon ones! Hope that helps šŸ˜Š

  5. The colours are so pretty šŸ˜Š I’m so bad at WIP’s as you probably know šŸ˜‚ Can’t help but start something new before I finish the one previous which is terrible. šŸ˜‚ Love the idea of making slippers, I need some new ones, perhaps that’s an idea instead of buying them šŸ¤”šŸ˜Š x

    1. The slippers are time consuming as the pattern is a bit fiddly, but I’m hoping they’ll be worth it! šŸ˜Š Now I do need to finish a WIP before I start any more x
