WIPW: Work-In-Progress Wednesday



I had to count all of my projects that I have going right now.... just to see how many I have started and haven't finished. I have 6!! I need to finish some of these bad boys up!

For you today, are two of them that I have made progress on since the last time I posted.



The Grannies and Ripples {Take 2} is one of them. Not only did I add on past the grannies from last week, but I added on to the beginning grannies at the bottom. I figured a border before the real border would make it look better. I'm excited that i'm almost half way done with the afghan!

The other thing that I started this week, is my plarn bag! I have been collecting plastic bags, cutting them up and making a ball of plarn for months now. The ball has just been sitting there, so I decided it was about time that I get started on it.



I mentioned to someone that the next one I make I wanted to use only the same color bags.... but the more I look at this, the more i like the variegated look.

I really hope the plarn bag works well! It is a lot slower to work with than regular yarn, and I have also learned that those thicker plastic bags are not good to crochet with! I thought that the thicker bags would hold up better... and i'm sure they will. But they are a pain to crochet with!





I am linking this bad boy up over at Tami's WIP, Ambassador Crochet, Yarn Along, SusanD's and The Crochet Way.

Well, that's what I am working on right now!

  1. I've been thinking about cutting plastic bags into strings to crochet but wasn't sure if it would work. Now you're showing me that it actually works. Great! :-)

    1. It works very well!! Here's a video I used to help tie the plastic together.

  2. Looks fantastic, I've never tried to use plastic bags but I might try it in the future!

    1. It's been fun and quite an experience! Plus it's free yarn. :)

  3. I have bags of plarn but it's been a good 2 years since I've made anything with it.
    Ugh! I have so many projects started, and so man projects that I can start with materials I already have.
    I could keep myself busy for 3 or 4 years just with what I have and not buying any other supplies!

    1. I agree! If I used up all of my yarn, I'd never have to buy anything for a few years!

  5. We're tied! I have 6 things on the hook right now (although I was really tempted the other day to start a 7th!). If you check out my blog, you'll see the list with my progress percentage (very low on some things, sad to say).
    Blessings,
    Kate

    1. I hate that I have so many started. I just have so many projects going on in my head that I want to work on all of them at the same time!

  8. Only 6? That's my usual minimum! I can't say that I'll ever cut up plastic bags for yarn, I need them for other things.
