WIP Wednesday 4/17

What a week this has been!

I really dove into the projects this week, and although I was sidetracked by a few customer orders, I was able to put in some good work on my WIPs.

First up is the Crazy Blanket. I swear 10 years from now, I will still be posting this as a WIP. I want to finish it, I swear, its just so BIG that I can only do a few rows at a time before my crochet ADD kicks in and I have to move onto something else. I got 2 rows done this week (= one color 'stripe'), so I'm calling it successful progress. No photo either this week for it, the light was horrible last night and since it wasn't a ton of progress on it, I'll wait until this weekend to take a good shot of it.
Next up is the project I have started calling the Beach Blanket. I love everything about this blanket. Its my stash buster, and the woven stitch is so freaking cool. I'm still a little unsure about my color choices, but since I vowed at the beginning to stitch with the same yarn brand throughout (Caron's Simply Soft - a splitting nightmare), I'm kind of limited on the color choices. Although I think the bright and the muted colors are starting to create the beachy feel I was hoping for.

You can see the tiny little hint of pale pink that has been started. I really like the way it's balancing the colors, so I think it may end up a bigger section. Definitely needs the pale color to tone down the hot pink. It's getting to be a bit much for my taste.

I wish I had more finished items to show. I may be starting a third big blanket and a baby blanket project this week, so watch for those coming in a future WIP Wednesday!
