I organized my WIPs cart this weekend, which admittedly, most of the time is way, way too small to hold even half of my wips (afghans, anyone?) but is useful for holding, at least, projects like socks, scarves, etc. I dug around, found all the various squares I’ve been stitching away on, found all my sock projects (some not even photographed as a wip), my log cabin afghan (again, that hasn’t even been photographed or added to rav yet), etc, & thought that would be what I’d share this week.
ignore my messy fridge in the background…
bottom 2 shelves – one holds a skein of yarn for a scarf I need to make for a Michael’s project demo, & the bottom shelf holds my log cabin (knitted) afghan that I’ve been working on. I think I have the “guts” finished on about 10 squares & I think I need about 16. I still need to add a “round” of white all the way around each of the guts.
top shelf: socks galore
worsted weight slipper socks (pattern testing for a friend), a mosaic slip stitch pattern I’m testing through Rav (must get cracking on this one faster!), a pair of socks for Jon started over vacation & is almost done (few more inches on both legs), a pair of cotton socks started ions ago (part of the scrap summer socks series), & on the far right is a baggie holding a couple of squares in progress
this shelf holds my last scrap afghan project that’s been languishing a bit, I’m just not motivated to work on it ’cause I’m only MAYBE 25% done… I’m not crazy with the stitch pattern that I picked for this & I got so sick of working in greens after the other 3 green scrap afghans… On the left is another baggie holding a bunch more squares
So how are you doing with your pile of wips? How do you store them?
