Work ~ in ~ Progress Wednesday 

Hello my lovely friends  💕 Thanks for visiting! 

Before Wednesday turns into Thursday I wanna show you real quick what I’m working on these days. 😊

Here’s the reason why I’m so late…

Yesterday I finished this stole….and not a moment too soon I might add. See… 😜

I guess you can say that the ‘Crochet Goddess’ smiled fondly upon me. 😇 

Well, that was yesterday. Today…not so much. 😕

I spent a good chunk of the day adding a ruffle border to the stole. That was a lot more time consuming than I anticipated. That thing is biiiiig! 😳

So….after picking up stitches (a lot of stitches!) with the ruffle yarn, knitting one round, starting to bind off…I noticed that the stole is now quite wavy. Not the desired effect. Meh 😔

🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸 ⬅️ My immediate future 😛

Oh well, not the first time, and probably not the last. 

I’m pretty sure that I know where I went wrong….more about that -hopefully- tomorrow. 


There are two more projects in progress right now. 

This one…

I’m not sure where it’s going…I just wanted to see how the fuzzy yarn looks as a piece, not just as a border. It’s kinda cute, don’t you think? There is an idea trying to form in my mind….let’s see if it leads to something. 

And then there is, of course, the never ending story of the cardigan. 😏

After I finished the back with the funky yarn, the maroon seams really didn’t fit the picture anymore. So I undid them, and redid them in funky 😁

See what you think 



It’s definitely more ‘me’ now. I love crazy colors, and sorta mismatched clothes. 😍

Did you ever rework a piece numerous times? Please tell me that -eventually – I’ll be done! 😉

I’m looking forward to hearing from you! 🤗

Until next time 💕

    That’s the great thing aboutmaking things yourself, bring able to make them ‘just right’. Frogging is always a sad experience, I feel your pain.

      You’re right! It can be frustrating, but when it’s ‘just right’ in the end it’s so rewarding…and all the pain is forgotten 😊
      Frogging is done…and the fresh start looks promising 😁
      Thanks for stopping by to chat 🤗

    I remake things quite often too. I love your funky sweater, but miss the dangles and swirlies, but if it is more you, than you go girl!!

      Thank you! 😃 Yarn Chicken was nerve racking. I caught myself crocheting really fast at the end 🤣 Maybe that did it 😜
      I love the new seams too…definitely worth the pain of frogging – yet again 😊
      Thanks for visiting to chat 🤗
