I hate WIPs

WIPs -- or work-in-process projects -- whatever you wanna call 'em, I hate them. Don't get me wrong. I love the activity of crocheting (and knitting). I just hate the pieces parts of partially-finished projects that pile up here and there.

This time of year, I have more WIPs than usual. I'm working on special orders, a contest entry or two, and oh -- don't forget Christmas presents. Looking at my kitchen counter this morning, I decided I need to clean up a few of my WIPs pronto. I've got a dragon (special order), a tea set (my own special adventure), and a scarf -- and that's just what hasn't been put away in the craft room!

The tea set will probably wait until last -- since I'm only doing it to see if I can. Unfortunately, that's also the project I WANT to finish most. You know how that goes ;-)

Well, I guess these WIPs aren't going to finish themselves... I'd better get hooking (or at least put them away until I do have time to finish them!)


  1. The tea set is so pretty! Is it your own pattern or one from somewhere else?

    (I've been enjoying your blog for a while but this is the first time I've been able to get my Google name and password to work!)

  2. I can so relate!

  3. LOVE the tea set. Perhaps a future CAL? or you could put the pattern for sale? No pressure ;D

  4. Heh heh. You guys know me too well. The tea set IS for a future pattern -- although I most likely won't have it done before the end of the year. It's actually a pretty detailed set and includes a sugar bowl, creamer, and dessert plate :-) But I will keep you posted on the progress!

  5. Oh my gosh, that tea set is adorable! I guess you have to know my love of all things tea. LOL I can't wait to see it completed.
