I’m currently a few days behind ( I’m on day 5) but, I thought I would share my progress.
Day 2: WIPs (work in progress)… hunt them all down And decide to frog it( rip it out) or keep it.
Here’s a list of my Current WIPs and their fate.
- Car sock( keep)
- Shawl (keep)
- Yellow sweater (keep)
- Pink sweater ( put away)
- Baby blanket squares (keep) oldest project 2009
- Dr who blanket ( keep and find the rest the sqaures)
- Moms sweater (frog and restart)
- 400 stitches blanket (keep)
- Blue scarf( keep)
- Green and black slippers (keep)
- Pink fuzzy blanket (frogged).
The funny thing about this list is that some of these projects are actually done, like the pink baby sweater; it was actually a learning/test project . And some of the projects are 80 to 90% finished.
I actually have a bucket list goal is to keep my WIP’s down to 5 and since two of these projects are gone.(the blanket I ripped out cause I hated it and the pink sweater i put in the closet for reference.) That means I’m down to 9. 1 pair of socks, 1 shawl, 1 pair of slippers, 1 scarf, 2 sweaters and 3 blankets. oh my…
Day 3 has tips for wip’s
I really liked the suggestions about how to keep things organized and on track.
I wrote out index cards for my WIPs and recorded where I was in the pattern, which pattern and yarn I was using, and what I needed to do next. It most cases, the next step was to order more yarn. Rough life.
Day 4 is all about storing.
I have put the smaller WIPs in big ziploc bags and the bigger ones in bag/totes. I then put them in my bedroom in a pink bin.
My work knitting is in the blue bag and my weekend projects are in pink bin.
Day 5 – add WIPs to Raverly!
Done and done. I just need to add some pictures but I’ll add those as I work on projects.
Right now, I am focusing on the green and black slippers and the shawl. I will run out of yarn this weekend for the shawl and the new skeins won’t be here for a few weeks. That means I will probably start on my moms sweater. (Bucket list item #80)
Tomorrow I’m going to be trying to catch up and work on days 6&7 which is all about that yarn stash. Eek!!!
Thanks for reading!
