wip: storage bag and more


nice to see you, hope you are fine!

with my storage bag for a baby room i’m not very advanced. the handles and ribbons are finished, but i still have all the yarn ends to weave in. the application motifs i have almost finished, i want to sew eyes on some of them and then i have to attach everything onto the bag. 


green waves

also i started on a new project with the 20 balls of cotton yarn i recently bough on a sale (because i don’t have enough yarn already and because i don’t have enough unfinished projects yet;)) and i think that green is so delicious.

i have spent hours and hours on finding a suitable pattern but eventually i decided to crochet a simple wave pattern because that gives – again – the best effect. 

the intention is that it will be a large piece of fabric that is suitable for draping.

it is a convenient project because i can pick it up and crochet a few rows between working on my other projects and my daily things.

new project, green yarn

and you, do you work on 1 or more projects?

  1. Two lovely projects – one near the beginning and one near the end. Perfect really.
    I usually have multiple projects on the go, at the very least one knit and one crochet quite often more than that.
    Enjoy your oretty green yarn.

  2. Yarn is therapie. 🙂

  3. Darling, who can honestly say: I have enough yarn?
    Love the little fish.

  4. I always have at least two projects…one that is larger and requires dedication and time and then another simpler more mindless project. I always feel like I’m accomplishing double the work!

  5. I often have many projects on the go but right now I am concentrating on one which I want to get finished before starting on Christmas knits, yes I know it’s only July but if I don’t start them now they will not be finished in time.

  6. I have actually finished some projects so not too many started, but many that need to be startedLove the wave effect!

  7. I always have at least 2 projects going at once and a big basket for random christmas gifts

  8. I like the yarn for your bag. I tend to have a couple of knitting projects on the go (1 mindless such as socks, 1 more complex) and a crochet one

  9. I like your new project. I haven´t enough yarn too and always find sales that I can´t let go. I´m doing a sweater in white cotton, a lace wrap and yesterday I began a shawl to a friend for her birthday in september.

  10. That green is gorgeous! And yes I do have a number of projects going at any one time. Some I try to focus on more than others and some are just never ending projects that have been around forever!

  11. Herkenbaar hoor, allerlei projecten tegelijk! 😉

  12. Right at the moment I just have one thing on the needles – socks of course – but I think I’d better start something else. I’m zooming through my socks way too fast! That green IS delicious! And the fish motif for the baby’s room bag is adorable!

  13. I used to feel incredibly guilty about having more than one WIP at a time, but recently I’ve had a kind of epiphany! I realised that I just wasn’t being true to myself by being so linear, I get so much more enjoyment from my work when I have a number a projects to choose from. I’m much happier now 😀
