I have quite a lot of works in progress at the moment, which has been impacting on my ability to blog about them. Instead of staying silent until I had something to show you, I thought I would list some of the items, and explain a little bit more about them.
The ‘Paint-by-Number’ Dress
I got this from a pattern in a recent edition of Crochet Today. The dress is done all in one, with no seams to sew together, which has only reinforced my love of crochet even more! This is how much I’ve been able to do so far:
I have a few more rounds to go to add length (I’m following the instructions for a dress to fit a 2 year old) and I have sleeves and trims to do before it’s finished.
I mentioned this in a previous blog post. I’m not sure where I am going with this yet, but I have made 7 of the squares and plan to make as many as I can from a large bag of pink yarn I bought from eBay. It’s going to end up as some sort of blanket, but I’m not sure if I’m going to try and add some other colours into it as otherwise it won’t be very big.
I came across this pattern through Ravelry and the link to the blog post is here. I plan to adapt it slightly to make it large enough to cover a table we have in our living room. I’m using up some of my yarn stash with this one, as I have so many scraps of colours and odd balls left. I hope Mr Farr-Jones likes it.
The Teddy Bear
Amigurumi rocks. I love making stuffed toys, and have decided I should really try and make more of them.
I came across a pattern for a vintage bear, and have now completed everything except for his face, and any embellishments I may want to add to make him extra cute. Here he is, faceless:
The Mug Cosy
I feel like I’ve blogged a lot about these. Such a simple pattern, and I keep getting requests for them. I have several on the go now, and have just posted some more to friends.
I have also just received the yarn needed to make a throw for a good friend who has just got married. I’ll be sure to tell you more about it when I have started it.
So, overall, I’ve been very busy! But I’m struggling with prioritising my WIPs which is probably why everything feels like it is taking a long time to do.
How many WIPs does everyone else have on the go right now?
