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.

.....and many more to go!

Elaine that's very inspiring! (I too am just catching up with this blog)

Elaine, just read through all the posts.  Great idea!  And congratulations on such a beautiful blanket.

Thanks MILI. It's just simple granny squares but I had a lot of fun with the colours.


Wow Elaine, the blanket looks beautiful. Enjoy your break in Wales. Are you taking any UFO's or WIP's with you?

I have indeed brought a couple of projects with me Claire. I've finished the third strip of the blanket so I've brought enough wool to start the next one and I've also brought the rather odd looking object in the last photo above. One day I hope it will be a bed scarf! Weather good so far....

An amazing transformation, from a collection of 'odd balls'  to your pretty, pretty, blanket, Elaine. It's beautiful!

Well done Christine those scarves are beautiful. I'm sure the recipients will be very happy to get such a lovely gift.

Well, my third and final UFO, a small blanket in a chunky yarn, in shades of blue (40" x 50"), that I had started for my sister some time ago. Today I finished it, so with my UFO's now completed, I can start something for the July theme!

Thank you Elaine for giving me the nudge that I needed! I will contiue to watch this blog with interest and encouragement :))

Beautiful, Christine.  Congratulations on finishing your UFO's.

Thank you Mili. I plan to finish all projects in the future, before starting something new! Thank you for your encouragement.
