Work in Progress? Wednesday

Do you remember the old parable...

"For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him...."

Well, I'm not that well-planning man. I'm always getting in to the middle of crafts without having taken everything in to consideration. I get excited (some may say impatient) and plow ahead only to find there's some pertinent thing that I need. At this point, I often feel overwhelmed and give up in discouragment. (This latter consequence would be the reason why I, now, seldom get started in the first place.)

Anyway, such is the case with my crocheted afghan. Marie Anne created this lovely pattern. And I began it joyfully (actually, I did have to start over once); but soon realized that I was lacking the yarn to finish. I did go back to my favorite little corner knitting shop to see if they had any more skeins; but alas, the store was torn down. So now I am contemplating transforming my afghan into a scarf, but I'm not exactly sure how to finish it off. Any ideas?


  1. Hi Steph, sounds to me like you're just being "human". Or maybe this is just the way the majority of us crafters are. Sorry your little shop was torn down. Lately, I'm finding a lot of that when I drive up to a favorite's either closed down or gone! xo,

  2. UFO's are one of the banes of my existence. I don't even know how to do that. Can you visit and proficient friend or relative and just happen to have the work along?

    It's gonna be beautiful no matter what you decide to translate it, too, though.

  3. Could you finish it up as a smaller afghan for the kids instead? It's gorgeous!

  4. Maybe you could do the afghan in different colors? I am sure you will come up with some good plan.


Thank you for your comments. They help me feel that I am some how connected out here in Blogland and not just writing to the air.
