Celebrating Crochet with a Positive Spin

Suffering from Startitis

on February 17, 2015

I feel like it has been forever since I’ve posted a finished object, much less completed a project. I know I’ve been crocheting like crazy, so where are the finished projects? I decided to do a little searching to find out what is going on, and this is what I found.

First off, I do have 2 finished projects – both are baby sweaters for a yarn friend for whom we are having a baby shower. One is the Surprise jacket for Baby by Jenny King. The other is a letterman style baby jacket, done in her favorite football team’s colors. I’ve taken pictures, but can’t post anything until after February 22, 2015, because I want my friend to be surprised.

However, after those two finished baby items, plus a hat I made for Halos of Hope, I am in WIP (work in progress) hell.  After searching through all my project bags and counting, here is the bad news…

I have 12 crochet projects in some state between 1/4 and 1/2 completed, as well as one beginner knit project.

Just let that sink in – a baker’s dozen of unfinished projects. And so, I need to take this surplus of projects and commit myself to only work on one at a time until it is finished.  Why the push to get things finished? Because I have plans for this year! I’m hoping to start my independent pattern line, and my goal is to have 3 or 4 patterns published for sale by the end of the year. There are big dreams in the making, and I hope, dear reader, you plan to come along for the ride.

I have decided on the first project I’m finishing – it is a motif shawl I’m making out of several colors of Palette yarn by Knit Picks. Just a bit of a tease until I get it finished and published.


As a non sequitur and as a heads up, I will be part of the Designer Blog Tour done by Crochetville during the month of March, which is International Crochet month. Keep your eyes open for my stop on the tour. There may even be a freebie if you swing by.


UPDATE 2-20-15: I found 4 more crochet projects that I had started, so now I am up to 17 WIPs… I do have some good news in that one project is 3/4 done! I just have to decide if I want to add one or two more colors to the finished design.
