A Little Something for the New Year

If you are anything like me or a million others, you are stepping into the new year with a desire to get organized. Personally, I would love to get my yarn stash organized and plan to spend some one on one time with my piles of chaotic fibers in the coming months in an effort to do just that, get organized!  Ha Ha…I will try and post pictures sometime soon so you can see what I am up against. Perhaps it will give me just the motivation I need to actually get it done. I will have you all to hold me accountable.

Free Printable Cards!

 

I have decided from this point forward each project I start is going to get a WIP Card. (Free Printable Below) This simple card will be used along with a handy ziploc bag to keep the projects I am working on under control. I tend to be a bit distracted by shiny things, aka new patterns, challenges and ideas that pop up in my newsfeed.

Take for example The Crochet Crowd, in the last three days they have posted their January Challenge along with video tutorials for a Puffy Baby Blanket and a 3 Hour Crochet Baby Blanket!  What’s a hooker to do?!

It just so happens that with all of the yummy yarn I scored at the Spinrite Tent sale last fall I have enough to do them ALL! (Psst. If you missed it, there are still tons of really good buys at the ETENT sale!)

And so it is, I know myself to well. I know that I am not going to stop being distracted. So rather than having a ton of WIP’s laying around that will end up getting frogged because I will inevitably forget what hook size I used or where I go the pattern from, I’m going to put each project in its own bag with one of these cards. Each project will have all the information I need to pick it back up and finish it.

Feel free to grab some for yourself!

What’s On Your Hook?

I haven’t quite had enough of this top hat pattern yet. One would think after all the top hats I have made in the last four months, I would steer clear of another. I submitted three, frogged one and the other is now my dogs buddy!

This one will be special. I’m making it to wear to a You and Me Tea Party that I will be playing the part of, Master of Ceremonies!

Share with me! I would LOVE to know what you are working on!

Casting off until the next time we hook up,
