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.

The granny square blanket seems to be my preferred project at the moment - it's the one I can work on whilst sitting in front of the TV.  I've made 4 more squares since I took the photo, they're just waiting to be joined to the blanket.  22 squares down, 13 to go!

Beautiful squares, Elaine....you'll get there......we'll be cheering you on!!!

All very interesting projects, Elaine. You'll get there. Lovely work!!

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.



Thanks Bev!

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.
