WIP Wednesday 09/01/2013

I've had a slight change of tactics this week. I've decided to spend and hour or 2 each day working on one of my major projects, a different project each day, and then, if I have any more crochet time that day, work on either something to replace an item I've sold or a new toy. It has kinda worked this week as I have manage to make progress on all of my long term projects, finish as item that is a replacement for something soled and almost finish a new toy. The finished item will be shown on Friday, but here are the rest.

Crochenit Cot Blanket
I started by working on projects that didn't see any progress last week, so this blanket got a couple more rows added to it.

Rose Clan Dress Tartan Rug
The tartan got a few more chains woven though.

Hoodie for Me - Dawg by Drew Emborsky (The Crochet Dude)
The pocket has bee stitched on (although I'm not sure how straight my stitching was) and the hood has been started.

AustralianaV2 - designed by me
The platypus and the pineapple are finished and the next couple of items are started.

Toddler's Jacket - Zoom by Ellen Gormley (GoCrochet)
I've added the last 4 rows to the body and am almost up to the edging.

Box Stitch Baby Blanket
 I think I managed another full circuit on this but it's hard to tell. I'm sure I turned at least 4 corners but I have to reverse direction at on of them so I'm not sure how far around I got.

Big Feet the Cat by Chris D. Friend
So this is my toy for this week. He only stand about 13cm (5") tall. I expect this one to be finished in time for photos on Friday so I should have 2 item to show then.

One thing I'm not real sure about with this system is when I'm replacing a toy that I've sold, is whether I should still work on a new one also.

That's enough from me. Check out the links in the sidebar if you want to see what every one else has been making.



  1. No matter what your tactic, you always make great progress! Love the blue cat!

  2. All your projects look great!! What a great idea - work on a different project each day. That way all of them get a little work each week. Sounds like a very good plan.

  3. My goodness you've been busy. Lots of great looking projects!

  4. Cute cat. Lovely thread crochet.
    That's a clever way to see Lots of progress.

  5. Oh, I love the new Scottish clan tartan and the hoodie you're working on for yourself! I'm so glad you crochet dudes out there have the Crochet Dude for inspiration - it's not just a girl craft, is it? Thanks for sharing at Hookin On Hump Day!
