WIP Mountain

I have got too many WIP's at the moment...


I've got this crochet ripple pattern which needs to be turned into a cushion. I've got the cushion, I've got a fleece blanket I could sew the square onto and then sew into a cushion cover. But I haven't because it involves hand sewing which for no logical reason gives me the heebie jeebies!


I've got my Wingspan shawl which is on probably it's final triangle. I might be able to get a ninth out of it but I haven't tried yet. If I just decided to stick with the 8 triangles in the pattern I could probably get it finished in an evening or two...


I've got this beautiful lace cardigan that just needs the sleeves lengthening to elbow length and a pretty tie detail. But it involves transferring the saved stitches onto a circular needle and attaching the yarn and then lace knitting... It's easy lace, it's just the effort to get there...


This vest needs a collar, short sleeves, pockets and then buttons sewing on. I bought the buttons today and I'm sure Mr Soaring Sheep would sew them on if I asked him nicely. But the knitting is going to involve picking up stitches so I'm putting it off.


Instead, I've taken the completely logical step when one is feeling overwhelmed with WIP's. I've started making squares for a single bed sized blanket!


This is why I try not to have more than 2 projects on the go at a time! I need an early night to stop me feeling so tired and then a kick up the bum so I get some of these projects finished! Next week I'm going to dedicate myself to one project per day and get them FINISHED!

For now though, I'm going to finish my pink square :-) Does anyone else want to join me with a bit of WIP wrestling next week?


  1. You are doing so well! The ripples real draw the eye in. I love that shawl pattern.

  2. They all look great! The transferring of sleeve stitches is a job I don't like either, its why I put them straight onto a spare circular now, makes the job SO much easier!

    1. I'd *like* to transfer stitches to a spare circular, I just don't have enough at the moment cos they're all tied up in WIP's :-S Another reason to reduce the number I guess!

  3. Oh dear! I have a lot of craft ideas at the moment, but none actually in progress. I work best when I settle down and pull an all-nighter on a project though. I look forward to seeing your finished projects!

  4. I've been known to have several projects on needles at the same time too. The only problem is trying to decide which one to work on when I have time to knit! Lovely shawl. Beautiful yarn you've chosen! Happy knitting!


Thanks for visiting, I love comments :-)
