For as long as I have crocheted, I have tried very hard not to have more than one or two projects on the hook at any given time. I know several people who keeps LOTS of projects going, each in their own little work bag. Those people have always amazed me! I have a hard enough time remembering which row I was last on for just one project, unless I’ve marked it somehow, let alone five or six projects.
Since I limit my WIPs, I have an ever-growing list of patterns and ideas of projects that must be made. I don’t know a single yarnist who doesn’t have more ideas and patterns than she has time to make them. So while I’ve finished up my forever-thread project, I’ve steadily added to my list of want-to-be WIPs list. Baby jackets and hats for my daughter and for my friend’s twins (our girls were born less than two months apart), a fuzzy bathmat with 3-dimensional stitching, endless petals pillow, the Sophie’s Universe CAL from Look What I Made….. my list just keeps growing.
Thankfully, my current project is finished and I can start something new. This is from Annie’s Calendar Bed Doll Society, Miss July 1993. Size 10 crochet cotton in red, white & blue, with DMC gold.
