Organizing my WIPs

Most of my WIPs are trying to become UFOs. I blame some of that on my CADD (Crochet Attention Deficit Disorder); I can't focus on one project long enough to finish it in a timely manner. And I blame some of it on the weather; most of my WIPs are blankets, and even in the house with the A/C and fan on, it's too hot to work on them for long periods of time. I look at them, grab my hooks, and crochet something quick and small instead.
But I need to get them done because I'm tired of looking at them. Plus I have many more I want to start :-) I know, I have problems. So I joined the Ravelry group, My Sister's Knitter KAL/CAL. Details can be found on the link, but, in a nutshell, I'm made a goal to finish as many WIPs as possible before September 30. 
These include:
Polka Dot Blanket
The Wool Eater (blanket)
Granny Square Placemats
Yo Yo Blanket #3
Scrap Granny Squares Blanket
Granny Square Sampler Afghan
Stripey Blanket CAL
Baby Blanket
Mile a Minute Afghan
Maureen Scarf
Peace Sign Blanket
I also have two WIPs that won't count because they were started after August 1:
Funny Bunny
Garden Sweater
Now, I'm realistic; I know I won't finish them all. But I'm hoping this will give me the boost I need to put a dent in the pile.
I'll be posting pics of progress as I go.
Thanks for reading!
Blessings :-)

Today's Inspiration


  1. That is a huge list of wips you have there, I have about 4 3 of which are blankets, one of them is the granny sampler afghan, I just can't get that one, I have a feeling it will never get finished. Good luck with your list! I will have a look at that group. :)

  2. You certainly have a lot of projects going. Good luck with getting them done. :)

  3. Yes, I can relate! I suggest you start with the ones you like the most, to make it fun. One step at a time...and you will finish them all! Have fun!

  4. WOW! That's a lot to accomplish! I'm sure you'll make a big dent in your to-do list. Good luck!

  5. Wow! That's an awesome list! Can't wait to see your pics and I hope you get to check lots off your list!
