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.
Yup! I've got them too - UFO's and WIPs - but I figured something out. You Only Have To Finish One !!!!!!!
(and then another one, and another one ....:) !
You're not wrong Arlene, I've found if I only think about them one at a time it's not so bad.
Ooooh I wish I could be more disciplined. I tend to work on whatever project grabs my attention at the time which is probably why I have SO many UFOs!!!
This is a really pretty baby blanket. The yarn made a really interesting pattern too. Lovely photo. !
Yum, yum! Sooo pretty, Chris. I bet you're feeling pretty relieved to have it finished. :))
Beautiful blanket Christine - I love this yarn because of the patterns it makes. Well worth persevering! Happy to have helped in a small way!
What a beautiful blanket Christine. It's so satisfying to complete a UFO and I find it inspires me to move on the the next item waving at me from the shelf.
Cheers for completing your blanket Ailsa. Sorry to hear about your health problems that slowed you down !
Congrats on completing your blanket, Ailsa. I hope the steroid injections continue to provide you with some relief.
It is never too late to send squares, blankets or other goodies. :))
I have just sent off a couple of parcels a few weeks ago.....my first in months....time flies and life sometimes gets in the way. :)) I am currently knitting a few Christmassy squares so that I can sew together what was intended as an *early* Christmas blanket for last year. It will get there in time for this Christmas....lol.
