Craft, Crochet

Current WIPS..

… because I haven’t got anything finished to share with you at the moment (oopsy)! So I thought I would share some of the (many) things that I currently have on my hook. Having a full time job and an insatiable thirst to work on new projects I tend to start things, leave them hanging around for a bit and finish them at a later date, know that feeling?! I fully intend to finish everything that I share with you whether it be next week or next year…

If you follow me on Instagram (link in my sidebar) you’ll know that I have been sharing snippets of some of the things I have been hooking for my wedding in June next year (so excited!) BUT I won’t be revealing fully finished projects until after my wedding, we don’t want Mr P to see everything now do we?!!

I knew as soon as we set our date to get married that I wanted to crochet my bouquet and button holes – Here is what I have made so far. I will reveal all once I become Mrs P…

The roses are the beginnings of my bouquet and we picked carnations for our button holes as they are a symbol of pure love and admiration – perfect for ones wedding day I would say! I also embroidered this sign for photo purposes just in case anybody didn’t know that I’d made them.. 😉

My solid hexie blankie is growing slowly – I fear for this one going into the yarny depths of WIPland… I’ve made some more hexagons I just need to sew them together. A little ladybird applique might be added as well.

I’m still working on our seat pads mentioned in this post.  The pattern is from the book Granny Square Crochet, and its really easy to follow. I’ve made the 15 sunflowers to go round the outside I just need to put a border round and join them!

I occasionally go and have a rummage in my yarn cupboard and have a look at my WIPS that I started when I first taught myself to crochet and I stumbled across this the other day. It was originally meant to be a blanket but the I like how it currently looks so I want to turn it into a nice winter scarf. I’m not looking forward to sewing in those ends.. When will I learn to sew them in as I go along?

This is the one I’m most excited about and the reason why the previous mentioned projects have been put on the back burner.  I just can’t wait to see what it looks like when its done. In this post I mentioned that my sister keeps pestering me to make her something and when I found this variegated yarn I knew I had to make her a cardigan with it.

Its made with 59 Solid Granny squares and because the yarn is variegated there is no colour changes or very many ends to sew in hoorah! I adore the colours and the fact that no 2 granny squares are the same. 

That’s all the projects I have on the go for now.. I’m sure I have plenty more hiding in the cupboard but I’ll save you from those for now! What projects do you have on your hook at the moment?
