Work in progress......I've got too many of them. A blanket which is 3/4 finished, a poncho about a third done, shawl for my mother only a quarter done. Last week I started on a tasselled waistcoat for myself, just 6 rows into it. And today I've started a cushion cover.
It's getting ridiculous, my attention span seems to be getting shorter the older I get! It's not that I don't want to finish them all.....I do. I just get a bit bored doing the same thing for days/weeks on end, I suppose, hence the desire to start something different.
Well, I'm going to take myself in hand.....or rather, take a crocheted item in hand and bloody well finish it. The cushion cover I'm determined to finish this week - should be easy enough, it's a plain one in chunky yarn, crocheted in solid DCs, a simple envelope shape with button fastening. I'll then embellish it with a few crocheted flowers.
Next I'll get on with the blanket, I reckon there's only about another half dozen or so rows to go, then 2 or 3 rows of edging.
The shawl I'm not so sure about, I'm not very keen on the way it's looking (which is why I stopped it, I guess).....I might undo it and pick a different pattern.
I like the idea of the waistcoat, it'll be the first actual clothing item I've ever made for myself - always just made blankets, throws, cushion covers, lacy tablecloth, scarves, cowls and hats before. I'm using a cream Aran yarn I've had for a couple of years.....if it works out ok then I'll do another in some nice cotton mix yarn I've seen and like the look and feel of. But before I buy any more yarn I will finish the poncho! I love the purple flecked yarn I'm doing it in, I guess it's just taking me a bit longer to do than I hoped.....as it's made from the neck down, it's obviously getting bigger with more stitches each round.
I'm sure I'm not the only one with loads of WIP's or UFO's.....am I?
