Here it is! 4 years later! I found every WIP picture I have and put them in order:

ugh I had to rip out some of the first stitches, but it wasn’t so bad
The bottom Gallifreyan says”KAT2015-2019RIP”

Stuff I changed to personalize it:

  • I added different phrases on the sides. The original said “something old and something new-something borrowed something blue”. I chose a quote from Captain Jack Harkness “I used to be a poster boy…the Face of Bo they called me.” I love Jack!
  • Instead of K-9 in the bottom squares I put a Dalek and a weeping angel. Both are from wee little stitches.
  • I changed the bottom text to Geronimo! with a bow tie (cuz the’re cool) and a bobbin of thread next to some squiggles.
  • I put some black lines on the police box door to look like text.
  • This is the first time I put the year I started and the year I finished! My friend suggested putting RIP since it took so long. ;-)

On to the next one!!

This year we went to the Hotel Parq Central. It was swanky! I got to help with hats! I had a blast. Last year when I went to this, everyone was so nice and welcoming and I really needed that. I’ll be making more hats for next year too. Here are all the pics I took:

See that cute red one in the middle? I won that in auction.
Hats hats hats and more hats
A friend made this one! I won it too!
This was an amazing special collection based on The Wizard of Oz.
P made this one! I loved the feathers but got outbid.
Another friend made this one! I won it and gave it to P.
Me and Bunni. 😍 Mahalo!

Wendy and Marie will get along just fine
My pretty hat!

Can’t wait for next year!!

Let’s see… where to start…

I frogged the scarf and started the Bluebonnet Shawl by Marly Bird. Edgecliff is going a row or two at a time. I decided to go simple and meditative with that cool Cat Mountain Fiber skein and am making a simple garter stitch big scarf. I love seeing the different textures!

It’s the Hummingbird colorway but I keep calling it Mardi Gras. XOXO

The Iceberg Afghan is going great! Kind of almost done. Like. I put the squares together, but have 3 skeins left for the border. 2.5 now. I’m just winging it. 5 rows of alternating granny and DC. I’ll finish it with the rest of the blue ombre. It’s huge and keeps me toasty warm while hooking!

Ha! It kind of looks like an iceberg here.

Update! Finished! 2/24

Cute!!I made a cute lil bag on Valentine’s day! It’s a freebie from Red Heart.

Can you believe it? Only 3 yarny WIPs?

All WIPs all day makes Jack a good boy

So if you know me you know I get overwhelmed easily. Dig too deep. Get in over my head and all that. I went from a ginormous list of WIPs to a much more manageable one. I got even more done last year, and never once felt guilty or tired of it when I branched off into something else.

I went through my tub of WIPs yesterday and compared them to my ravelry In Progress projects. Some just didn’t feel as fun anymore, so I frogged them. I out the WIPs I’m excited about into the In Progress sections and hibernated the rest! Earlier I had put some old ideas in my Queue, too.

So, now I have 6 WIPs. That’s it! All are really fun for me, and one is so close to being finished I can taste it. (don’t taste yarn it’s not awesome)

×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×~×

Update:

Nah. I frogged more. Started a couple things, fell out of sync or step with others. I think I figured about 6 so far! If it isn’t fun, I’m not going to mess with it.

SO! I have 4 WIPs now! The newest is this-Vintage Shells Wrap. Easy to memorize. Good for when I’m getting sick. I’m under many blankets, a dog, a cat, and watching Ultimate Beastmaster.

 

My guys, Rom and Luke. Pepper is probably asleep in my bed.
I’m still cold.

I’m also working on Edgecliff and the giant Iceberg Afghan.

Ugh. shiver More later.

And this!! How cool is this?!?
