Drowning in WIPs

I have a lot of things on the go. I buy material or yarn or little kits on impulse. It's not a good thing, given that I work in a craft store. :p

So when the New Year came along, I decided that one of my resolutions would be to finish at least one project a month that I already have the materials for.

I have two knit blankets on the go, two sewing projects, and the material for five other sewing projects. It's not entirely impossible to do.

At the moment I'm focusing on the knit projects because they're bigger and will need the most work. I'm really pushing the blanket for my brother and kind of idly picking away at the Elf Blanket. (I'll post about that tomorrow)

With the sewing projects, the two on the go are already cut out. I just need to put them together. If by the end of January, I don't think I can finish a blanket, I'll switch to one of the sewing projects.

The real problem is the yarn and beads that I've bought on spec. I didn't include them in this endeavour, but I'm hoping to find something to do with them. Or trade them to someone else.

Luckily, I know that it's not as bad as the stash other people have. My beads are confined to two shoeboxes and a little caddy. My yarn a large shopping bag and a medium box.

Well, we'll see what happens, right?

See you next time!

  1. I have yarn stashed in at least 3 different containers and don't EVEN get me started on where I hide all my bits of material!
