WIP's.... W . I . P's
I am not alone in this crafty world, we even have a abbreviation for what effects me.
W.I.P's ......... Work in progress.
I have many works in progress, scattered all around my life. But today we are going to discuss only the yarn ones. I have a few of these, and i think it's time i got this guilty secret off my chest.
"one or two" i hear you all cry " we all have one or two unfinished things"

Yeah i got one or two

A skirt for Outtake
A tiny tiny teddy for *my husband * lol

three or four? yeah i got those

a few floppety bunniesanother baby star blanket

Five or six? hmmm few more

a teddya secret ;)

Seven or eight????? alittle higher

Blanket for the cotCardigan for Strawberry Puff

Oh and one more, i've decided to learn to knit. I did the basic 'drop stitch' when i was younger (yanno when you start with 30 stitches and your mum has to come and increase 5 every ten minutes to keep you on track) well now i want to knit real stuff, so i give you my last W.I.P...

a scarf for Spud.

Hmm i was hoping that would make me feel better!!! I guess there is only one thing for it, bring this under the new years resolution category of 'don't leave things till later'. I gotta actually get this stuff finished. So it's numbered, you know what i gotta do....... updates hopefully regularly.

And to start, looky here, i finished a skirt and hat for strawberry puff. :)

To continue our conversation through our blogs!- I am just finishing 'The Fall' which is the first book in a new series by Garth Nix and has been quite good- easy to read so is based at 10yrs onwards, Which for the likes of you and me who don't have a lot of time to get indepth with a book, is perfect. I'm looking forward to the next one now! But i am also waiting for Saturday and Sunday of his last series so he had better get a tally on!!!!!

Lovely to come across a UK-home educating blog - will be bookmarking you!
In the meantime where did you come across that wonderful skirt pattern, is it your own? Might be just what I need to get me knitting again.
