Recap of Projects Completed During the Challenge So Far

one of many projects completed

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

  1. Finish the hexagonal afghan.

    DONE!! You may recall, I only needed to crochet 2-3  hexis, rip out several rows of joining to get it straighter, plus add a border.  First of many projects completed

  2. Use odd granny squares and complete an afghan.

    DONE!! Remember, I already had most of these squares crocheted up to about 4-6 rounds.projects completed 2017

  3. 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.)purse completed
    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!

  4. Create a pillow cover with some leftover squares.

    DONE!! You may recall I had a pillow form that needed a cover. I squared the flowers and completed the front and the back of this pillow.  completed project

  5. Finish a baby afghan.

    DONE!! This has been sitting around waiting on time and energy. I had to crochet 33 little squares, join them all together and add the borders.another project completed

  6. 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! almost completed

  7. Crochet a couple of baby afghans.

    I started this baby blanket, as well as another. I’m not sure I will get either of them done, but I will sure try my hardest. work-in-progress

  8. Start and finish a corner-to-corner blanket.

    I have not started this yet.

  9. Crochet a bowl!

    I have not started this yet, eithier.
