Wip Wednesday: Super-sized!

Over the weekend I did some organizing and today I will share all the WIP's I have that I want to finish for sure.

Knitting WIP's

I'm still trying to finish my brother's Christmas gift!! I know its bad that we are more than half way though January and its still not finished but my goal is to finish it before the end of the month.

Of course being the crazy person that I am. I started another project on the 1st day of the year, worked on it a little and haven't touched it since. Its another scarf using Candy Skein Juicy Sport. I've been wanting to try this yarn since it came out and finally got some in the colorway Watermelon. I love the color! The stitch I am using is called Parasol and its available in the book The Complete Photo Guide to Knitting. I used 2 repeates for my scarf. I'm not really in a rush to finish it but since its going to be pretty small I'm thinking maybe by the end of February.

I have 2 shawls to finish, both I started back in September. When I started planning my trip to Paris I kind of had my mind occupied on other things so I never got around to finishing them. After the trip I had to work on my new patterns and Christmas gift so I didn't have time. But now I definitely want to finish them, especially since they are both more than 75% done. 

Baby Bib
In October I started this ghost bib and almost finished it. All I have left are the I-cords which I know I can finish in a short time but of course I-cords are not my favorite which is why its still not finished. 

Crochet WIP's

I have 3 blankets to finish. The first is a baby blanket my mom asked me to make for my niece. I only have about 6 rounds left but I haven't found the time to finish it. I've already promised my mom I'll finish it asap so its next on the list after my brother's scarf.

The other two are Tunisian Crochet. This one below is Entrelac Tunisian Crochet. I already had one using these same colors that I started a while ago but I frogged that and decided to add the white. I would say I'm getting close to half way done. I'm not going to set a date to try to finish this one, instead my plan is to work at least one row every week until its finished. 

The third blanket I started last week. I know again I probably shouldn't have but I'm planning on this being an ongoing project throughout the year. Its a stash busting project using this pattern. Its free and really simple. The short color changes I am going on mine have kept it interesting. The reason I started this project was because one of my goals from last year (that is also a goal this year) is to use up all my Caron Simply Soft Yarn. I have enough colors to make a blanket. I'm not sure how big it will be but I guess I'll keep going until its finished. 

Crochet Hook Case
Yes I finally started on my crochet hook case. Its going to be a lot bigger than the pattern which only holds 10 hooks. Mine will hold 24 hooks. I'm using Hobby Lobby I love this Cotton. 
I have a lot of work to get done in this section which is really no surprise.
First I am working on finishing a Greyhound that a friend ordered in December. I'm almost finished with the body.

I started a colorful Star using this free pattern. I'm using Caron Simply Soft and changed colors ever 4 rounds. Only have the back to finish.

A moose head is still waiting for a body, a monkey needs a body and I still need to crochet pieces for a fox.
In this bin I have parts for 23 tiny owls, 2 lady bugs, and a tiny pig! 

Those are all the wips I need to finish as of right now. I still have several projects I'm undecided about so the list could always get longer!

Thanks for stopping by and for your comments! Remember to check out FO Friday!


  1. Your projects all look beautiful. I could never have that much on the needles at one time. I would get overwhelmed! Good luck with all those projects!

  2. Wow-za! I lost count of how many WIPs you have. But they're all great. I really like the knit stitch. It's unique. I've never seen it before. And the baby blanket and Tunisian Crochet projects look awesome.


Thank you for your comments! :)
