Look forward to seeing the finished bits and bobs.

 

It's great to have lots on the go. I finished a knitted doll just before Christmas that had become a bit of a chore and now I feel a bit lost. I've not been able to pick up any of my other WIPs, I feel I need to starting something fresh, yet know that I really ought to finish some of the other stuff first....... so instead I've just been sitting down with a cuppa reading back issues of LK!

 

Current WIPs: Aran jumper for my nephew who lives in Madrid (gets very cold there in winter) but I think it's been too long on the needles and it won't fit him!

"Pop" jumper for myself - halfway up the front now so getting there.

Crochet coasters for my mum (she asked for them back in October).

Crochet throw - just on the last leg of the edging

Crochet patchwork double blanket - I've done about 250 of the 400 "patches" I need

Knitted patchwork knee blanket (made of the scraps of yarn that I tie together to make one great big ball).

 

D'you know, I think that's it! Only 6 WIPs! I think I'll finish the big crochet throw next.

 

Hey, writing it down has helped me to focus and I know have a plan for the way forward. Thanks everyone

:-)

My current WiPs are:

 

The LK Cricket Sweater - done the back and about a 1/4 of the front. It's looking brill

The LK Christa beaded shrug from issue 19 - I started it when the issue came out :red: I've just got the sleeves and sewing up to go but haven't touched it in 2 years...

A pair of socks in a gorgeous pinky/blue/purle yarn. I've got to the heel on the first one and will do the rest one day

A summery vest top in a herringbone kind of pattern that is currently a grand total of 2 inches long, that was last year's "I'll wear it this summer" project - hah!

My Knitting Olympics entry - it was a take on the LK tabard top from issue 29 but after the olympics I ripped out the buttonbands to redo them properly but, err.. haven't.

 

That makes six too!

 

I've also wound the yarn for the LK Mystery Shawl but that doesn't count as a WiP because I've not cast on yet!

 

It is my new year's resolution to do all these things though so ask me again this time next year...

Not so much knitting in progress for me but crochet as I'm making a large granny square out of the left over wool from my blanket. I do plan on making the toy for Alexandra from the latest LK too as I have loads of oddments of DK.

 

Don't think its a good idea to list all my UFO's though..... :lol:

As I said in my other post, I've got ducks on the needles at the minute.

I don't think I should list my UFO's either... it'd be a huuuuuge list! There's a jumper that's been sat in one of my bags for about 4 years with only the back done and half the front. 8-/ It was meant for my nephew, but I think he might have outgrown it by now. :lol:
