WIP Wednesday - still in the middle of a crocheting frenzy...


This Scheepjes Mystery CAL, it's taking over my life! Seriously, I've not got round to any of my other projects because this is literally taking up all the free time I can muster. I've been crocheting during my lunch breaks, and when the kids are watching telly, when I'm waiting in the car or at the doctor's, when I need five minutes of peace, and every single evening. My poor Garter Yoke Cardi is languishing in its bag on top of the sofa, untouched. There is only one sleeve left to do so I should really push ahead with it, but this CAL, it's far too addictive.

I've finally finished the fourth pattern piece. See the little flowers in the middle? Aren't they adorable?



Because I missed last week I also didn't get round to showing off the pattern pieces for week three:


I actually think I found the week three pattern the most enjoyable so far. They were quick, and fun, and I did them in only a few days, which enabled me to catch up a little.

I'm still two weeks behind, though. Tonight I'm going to start on Week 5, but the pattern for Week 6 came out last Friday, so aaaaaahhhh, please stop the bus, I want to get off!! 

There is nothing for it, I will have to persevere!

Here are the pieces so far, in all their glory. :)

  1. Gorgeous! The flowers are adorable. How many weeks are there in total? You can't possibly get off the bus now, after coming so far! Can't wait to see the rest.

    1. Thank you! I'm not entirely sure how many weeks are left, but I am guessing that we are around the half-way point now. I'm really hoping to continue this, and I'm loving all the different squares, but it's hard to keep up, in particular as my yarn arrived 2 weeks late and I have been trying to catch up ever since!!

    1. Thank you! I love the look of the flower, but I didn't enjoy making the squares as much as some other weeks. :)

  3. It's looking quite wonderful and I love the little flower, so adorable, you'll catch up I know you will and as long as your enjoying doing them that's all that matters, the other projects will get done, lots of time yet.

    1. Thank you. I'm still hoping to catch up, but it's hard work!! ;)

      Hopefully, once I'm on track I can find a few moments to continue my other projects as well...

  4. Wow - six squares per week?! That's rather a lot! I'd be way further behind already! Your squares look beautiful and I like how all the squares complement each other.

    1. I know, it is rather a lot, in particular as the squares are huge! Mine come out at around 20cm x 20cm...

  7. Those squares are beautiful! I love all the detail, and the colors look wonderful together. I need to get on this crochet bandwagon...there are so many fun patterns out there! For now I will stick to knitting, but hopefully in the new year I can figure out something other than a chain :-)

    1. I have to stack them up like that occasionally to show myself how much progress I've actually made. The blanket is getting quite big now!

    1. Hahaha, so do I! I just really need to catch up with the CAL so I can slow down a bit you know? I think doing 6 of those squares a week wouldn't be too bad, but since they are big squares anything on top of that is a real push.

  13. I feel so bad that I chickened out of the CAL. My yarn just sits forlornly in the corner calling to me! Seriously, your squares are delish. I'm going to have another go after the Christmas madness is over.
