I may actually reach all of my goals for completing unfinished projects and I am super happy! Hubs is happy about all the projects completed, too!
The “WIPs-to-do” stack is definitely smaller and the yarn is being used in a very visible way.
I’d like to show you the two newest completions, and also a recap of my list of to-do’s which I posted at the beginning of the Challenge last month.
Projects Completed Recap
Finish the hexagonal afghan.
Use odd granny squares and complete an afghan.
Create something from the black granny squares.
DONE!! The granny squares were completed I just needed to figure out what to do with them. I decided to make a purse. Isn’t it beautiful? I recycled old purse handles and metal rings that I had on hand. I like the commercially bought handles as the crocheted ones tend to stretch. (So, this knocks out three birds with one stone: fabric, granny squares and purse handles are all from my stash. Have I mentioned how extensive my stash is? It is overwhelming when I think about it.)
I lined it with a lovely fern-print, cotton fabric, and I added a phone pocket on the inside as well as a large snap to keep it closed. This purse is for me and I can’t wait to start using it!
Create a pillow cover with some leftover squares.
Finish a baby afghan.
Crochet a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle hat for my grandson.
This was an attempt to use up some stash, so I started the hat and planned to work on it until completion. It wasn’t long before I knew I might not have enough yarn, but I chose to get as much done as possible. I need more yarn to finish this one!Â
Crochet a couple of baby afghans.
Start and finish a corner-to-corner blanket.
I have not started this yet.
Crochet a bowl!
I have not started this yet, eithier.
