WIP it…

8 Mar

So, when I started this pattern, which will eventually be a light-weight spring shrug,

I HAD NO IDEA IT WAS MADE ENTIRELY OF SINGLE CROCHETS.

 

pretty, but time consuming.

Granted, they’re back post single crochets, so they’re, uhm, .00002 % more challenging than regular single crochets, but the lesson here, people, is this:

READ THE WHOLE PATTERN BEFORE YOU START THE PROJECT.  If you don’t, your coffee table will look like this forever

 

blarg.

And even though you work on it every night, the world will probably end before your shrug makes it to the 38 inch length your pattern calls for.

 

Just sayin.  *grin*

Weekend WIPs

23 Jan

Remember those WIPs I was telling you about?  Remember that sick Husband I was telling you about?  Well, Sick Husband is really good at sharing, so now there’s a Sick Me, which means that the following WIPs have been largely ignored this weekend in favor of thick, snuggly bathrobes and hot tea:

 

some day these will be fantabulous stripey mitts for my darling Chibi...

 

this really ought to be a broomstick lace scarf... right now it's more of a broomstick lace post-it note...

 

And with that, I’m going back to bed.
