Monthly WIP Update – #3

on April 9, 2016

Anyone else think this year is going by a bit quickly? Between International Crochet Month, Easter, Crochet Work and getting sick, the last half of March just flew by! In fact, I hadn’t realized until now that I hadn’t posted my WIP update, so I decided to get it up now.

The Good News – I have finished 4 complete color sections on the ripple afghan I am making for my cousin. At the moment, it measures about 5 feet in length. At first I was wondering if I would have to crochet the last color section, but after some time, I think I do need to stitch that last section. Unfortunately, that last section may have to wait until late May to get started.

Why the delay? Well, when I started the blanket, I didn’t have any outside crochet work that needed to be completed. However, in the month of March, I sent two finished items with patterns to Cascade Yarns, and I am in the process of working on several more patterns for them. Since I only have so much crochet time (i.e. evenings and weekends), it is reserved for the paid jobs at the moment. However, I should have the blanket done and shipped to my cousin before the football season starts, so good vibes all around.

So to recap, blanket is 4/5ths done, but won’t be worked on again until late May / early June. That means the next WIP update will happen when I start working on the blanket once again.

Anyone else have a work in progress that seems to be taking forever? I’d love to know I’m not alone!

    I have a cross stitch project that I started last fall, but have not worked on in months!!! I might get some done today, but I also want to finish my shawl that I started last weekend. Which I have not done a project page for. But life gets in the way of doing projects.
