Work In Progress Cards

If you are anything like me or a million others, you are stepping into the new year with a desire to get organized. Personally, I would love to get my yarn stash organized and plan to spend some one on one time with my piles of chaotic fibers in the coming months in an effort to do just that, get organized!  Ha Ha…I will try and post pictures sometime soon so you can see what I am up against. Perhaps it will give me just the motivation I need to actually get it done. I will have you all to hold me accountable.

Free Printable Cards!

 

I have decided from this point forward each project I start is going to get a WIP Card. (Free Printable Below) This simple card will be used along with a handy ziploc bag to keep the projects I am working on under control. I tend to be a bit distracted by shiny things, aka new patterns, challenges and ideas that pop up in my newsfeed.

Take for example The Crochet Crowd, in the last three days they have posted their January Challenge along with video tutorials for a Puffy Baby Blanket and a 3 Hour Crochet Baby Blanket!  What’s a hooker to do?!

It just so happens that with all of the yummy yarn I scored at the Spinrite Tent sale last fall I have enough to do them ALL! (Psst. If you missed it, there are still tons of really good buys at the ETENT sale!)

And so it is, I know myself to well. I know that I am not going to stop being distracted. So rather than having a ton of WIP’s laying around that will end up getting frogged because I will inevitably forget what hook size I used or where I go the pattern from, I’m going to put each project in its own bag with one of these cards. Each project will have all the information I need to pick it back up and finish it.

Feel free to grab some for yourself!

    Thank you for the Work in Progress sheet. I was thinking generally about doing something like that, but you solved the problem before I could realize I had a problem!

    These WIP cards are wonderful! Thank you very much, and thanks also to Mikey of the Crochet Crowd for sharing the link to this page.
    I would really like to get all my projects organized, too, and all my supplies. Not only do I spend a lot of time crocheting, but I also make earrings, fold flapping birds, and make bracelets and wristbands of various materials. If you figure out where to find/get/purchase the motivation to sort everything, and put it away in an organized fashion, please let me know!

      I think if I found that I would be rich! Or at the very least organized. My “Mess” is over the top!

    i always put my WIP in a bag with hook or needles and pattern. Using your WIP cards means i can stop buying more hooks and needles and means i have more money to spend on yarn lol

    Thank you for the WIP ideal. I was writing in a tablet which was so unorganized, always looking for things because it had no real format. Now I can file it away like in an index card box.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you !!!! These are perfect ! I am constantly in need of something like this and it will help out immensely. I always have multiple projects going and often with the same size hook, so I have to switch back and forth. Also, my 6yr old son likes to take the labels off all my yarn LOL !

    These are great! I also designed a work in progress sheet because I wanted to design one form for a variety of needlework including quilting,embroidery and other ‘crafts’. I ‘try’ to keep my crochet hooks out of the bag, but sometimes I slip up. These also come in hand because when I’m finished with the project I take a picture of the finished article to store the WIP form in a binder as a reminder of all I have accomplished. If a friend or family member likes something I’ve done, I have a handy reference to recreate the item for gifting purposes. for larger projects I purchase zip lock bags in the 2 1/2 gallon size available at Amazon or in selected grocery stores (our albertons has them -not sure of other groc stores.) A binder clip slips over a hanger for easy storage until I’m ‘ready’ to work on that project again.
