Welcome to the 27th Yarn Fanatic Link Party, and my 10th as co-host, alongside Rachel from The Philosopher’s Wife.
I can’t believe how quickly this week went!
This week I put together a bunch of my WIPS to share with you on WIPS Wednesday. The two most popular of my WIPS were the Frilly Dress and Madison’s Purplicious Afghan.
I have once again, set my WIPS aside to begin two other blankets – what, am I crazy?! Hehe. Not quite. I am going to be doing a mailing to a photographer friend of mine this week, and wanted to squeeze these two blankets in to send. The Madison and Tyler afghans will be put on the back burner until next week.
One thing I like to do when working on two or more of similar items, ie two colors of the same hat pattern; or, in this case, multiple colors of squares – work each color a little and then pause to get my other color up to the same point. Then, I don’t feel as if I am starting completely all over – I feel like I am getting more accomplished, faster. So, with my new blankets, they are granny squares and I have started working five in Color A, and then four in Color B, until I have reached my desired number of squares. It helps keep my focus and motivation.
I will have photos of these blankets for you on this week’s WIPS Wednesday, and hopefully, free patterns up soon!
