Last night I was thinking about how many crochet projects I have on the go. Whenever I read another blogger talking about the amount of UFO's they have, I generally feel slightly smug.
Just a twinge of smugness, not any type of full blown superiority or anything like that!
I have always thought that I religiously work on only one project at a time.
However, I realised that I have absolutely no right to feel ANY form of superiority or smugness whatsoever!As it turns out, I have ridiculous amounts of unfinished objects on the go, and I had somehow deluded myself into not realising this!
So, to show some remorse for my smugness, I will now chronicle what I am working on....
This does not technically qualify as a UFO, as when I began these thoughts last night, I pushed myself to finish this, so I could have some sense of myself as a finisher!!!
This is a baby blanket. I have four friends due to give birth within the next four months, so am trying to make a mix that will be suitable for boys or girls, and one of each. I am sure one of them will be a baby boy.
I tried to do some close ups here to give an idea of the wool, it's pom pom wool. I HATED working with this, but I LOVE the finished look and feel,. This blanket is fantastic for textures, I can't stop rubbing it with my hand.
Below is the baby blanket for a girl. I have to confess this is my favourite!
I love the colours.
And this is my beach inspired blanket, that is getting a bit big to work on now the weather is getting so warm. This may have to stay as an unfinished object until autumn.
And now on to the bags. I have posted before about how I plan to make bags for every female in my family for Christmas, so this has been an ongoing project for a while.
The problem is however that I finish the body of the bag, and sometimes, sometimes not, the straps, then I convince myself that I am done. When I still have to sort the lining (read- visit my Mum and ask for help), and sew on the straps. So without further ado, here are the unfinished bags....
This is for my sister in law- the one who likes rainbows. Same as my sis's, I need to make and sew on the straps, and also line
This is for my sister in law who loves Anne of Green Gables.
I bought this anime Anne of Green gables from a great fabric shop on etsy.
And lastly, my Mum's bag. She is getting hers tomorrow for her birthday.
She unfortunately will have to line her own bag, but I have bought the material for her to line it!!
Inside her bag is some wool, and a crochet hook roll.....
Complete with wooden crochet hooks.
I have become obsessed with wooden crochet hooks since being lucky enough to win one as part of a lovely prize from Meredith at Mereknits.
So, I should most probably say farewell now, and try and get some of this work done!!
Hope your weekend is lovely
Oops, pressed publish post and forgot what I really wanted to show you all
I bought this gorgeous necklace.....
after reading about it on this blog, http://linoforest.blogspot.com/2011/09/etsy-buzz.html
Isn't it adorable???
It's my birthday soon, and I was going to do the very direct hinting thing with my lovely husband, but I worried too much that he wouldn't buy it quickly enough, so I bought it as a present for myself!!
