WIP Wednesday 06.02.2013 and disaster

Hello everyone and welcome to another WIP Wednesday. I have plenty of progress to show you this week as well as one disaster, but first the WIPs.

Rose Clan Dress Tartan Rug
Just another 17 chains to make and weave through, then the border and darn in the ends. 3 weeks max and it should be finished.

Hoodie for me - Dawg by Drew Emborsky (The Crochet Dude)
Just a few more rows before I start on the shaping of the hood.

Crochenit Cot Blanket
Another change of colour as I ran out of the blue I was using. I think I just need a couple more inches before I start on the border.

Box Stitch Baby Blanket
A couple more rows then I'll be ready to sew in the ends and call it finished.

Toddler's Jacket - Zoom by Ellen Gormley (GoCrochet)
The first sleeve is progressing nicely.

Alien Guy
He's about 12" tall and I haven't even started on the head yet. I have no idea how big this guy is going to be.

Graduating Owl
This doesn't look much like on owl just yet but it will do when it's finished.

And now for the disaster.

AustralianaV2 with something spilled on it
I discovered this yesterday and am not sure what to do with it. I think the stain is cherry juice. This is one of the hazards of my work chair and eating chair being one and the same. If I had found this when I spilled the juice (it's what my pitted cherries comes in) then I might have been able to rinse it out before it stained, but now it's dry I don't really know what to do about it so I'm going to put it aside and start a new one.

AustralianaV2 take 2
I have actually corrected a couple of mistakes I made with the first one. I started with too many squares the first time and ended up making an adjustment to the pattern so that it wouldn't look too odd but this time I started with the correct number of squares. I also started at the other end which saves me from having to turn my tablet upside down in order to figure out where I'm up to. I'm keeping this one in a plastic bag so it will hopefully be protected from any future spills.

Well, that's my story for this week. Checkout the links in the sidebar to see what everyone else has been making.



  1. Oh no! So sorry to see your disaster! Hope version 2 will go better.

    Could you finish it and then dye it another colour to hide the stain? That's what my sister does with her sewing.

  2. Great array of wip's and all are moving along nicely ! Sorry about the disaster and I hope your second version will go better.

  3. LOL, when I first saw the legs I thought it was a hat! Wondered why you had it upside down! Thanks for sharing

  4. WOW, wow, and really many projects and so much progress. Well done.

  5. You've got alot going on! it's a shame about the stain but you seem calm about it..I would have been pulling my hair out!

    1. I can't afford to pull my hair out, I don't have that much left.

  6. So many projects!! Good luck with version #2
