During October I Will.....

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?

I know I shouldn't start any new projects and I included on my This Year I Will list last year that I would finish crochet projects before any new were started and I have also included this aim on my 2012 goals.  But just between Christmas and New Year I was getting a little bored with the cot ripple and fancied something new and quick.

I also know I shouldn't buy any yarn either but I did on Friday.  Lots of it to be precise but I'll show you that when it comes hopefully later this week.  Just to tease you more I'll also be back with some sales bargains I just had to have.  Totally needed you know.  Needed to help me with this stash mountain I am hiding under.  Needed to help me achieve crafting goals for 2012.  You know, I just NEEDED!

Every crochet project I have on the go at the moment is large and I have around 95% to complete on all of the projects I have started.  I want something quick to complete.  The two scarf's I made for presents have given me the finish bug and I need a quick fix project.

As I started this new project last week, the last week of 2011, it doesn't count towards the breaking of finish crochet projects before new ones are begun goal I have set for 2012.  Well I have completely ripped off Heather's Pink Daisy Blanket.  I did try to make it a complete granny but during blocking I thought no, no, no.  It was just not right:


So I ripped it back a round and thought I must rip Heather off completely:


One little daisy round.....and then it multiplied!  I have 4 finished squares now, which I am really happy with for a few days work.


Look, I've even sewed in the ends as I've gone along.  Can't quite believe it can you?  Well neither can I.

Wonder how long I can keep this dedication up?  Probably not long as I go back to work today after a lovely 2 weeks off.

Pop on over to Julia to see lots of other crafty work desks around the WWW.

Those squares are so pretty. Always good to start the year with a clear idea of what needs to be done. No harm in buying more wool by the looks of your lovely projects it will eventually be put to good use.

Looking at your squares reminds me that we have a blanket drive at school each year that ends at Easter, so I better get on with starting mine.
Love the design of yours.

Those squares are sooo pretty, I am impressed as crochet is the one thing I've never tackled. And you're not alone, I've been buying new fabric as well, even though I have three boxes full already, lol!!
Happy New Year!

Ugh, I felt your pain at going back to work yesterday! God I could hardly keep my eyes open I can tell you, hope you first day is better than mine. Little squares looks lovely, prefer the ones you did, rather than the one you copies, much nicer pattern! I can't crochet to save my life, but in fairness I only tried once when I was about 9, lol!!

Well if you're going to rip off a pattern AND start something new, I say go for it and make it a fab one liked this! Freya will be chuffed! Am intrigued by the new yarn you already needed. I understand your need, you are not alone!

Love those flowers in the squares.

Anne said...

Love the squares. I keep telling myself, quite firmly that I do not need to buy anything else in the craft line. Mmmmm we'll see. Thanks for sharing Happy New Year Anne x

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I've never seen a crochet daisy square like that before, so I'm very pleased you ripped it off to share. Remember they say copying is a form of flattery. Indeed! And don't let all your rules and resolutions wear you down. Use them as guidelines but don't fret the rule police.

Robin Panzer Art said...

Elizabeth said...

Sorry to read your holiday is over ... the work routine takes a bit of getting accustomed after the long holiday so hope your day went well. That's quite some resolution you have set yourself ... look forward to seeing all those finished crocheted projects. All the best. Elizabeth x #60

How I wish I could still crochet ...yes I have forgotten over the 30 years that I have not raised a hook.... I've tried but its useless ....so I look at others work with envy ....love the choice of colours you have used.xx
