Cwtch-speak lesson 2: Polywipamous

poly-wip-amous adj
1. Relating to, characterised by, or practicing polywipamy
2. Yarn crafts having a tendency to work on multiple knitting and/or crochet projects simultaneously
Once the 'never-ending socks' were cast off last week I went into a polywipamous frenzy - casting on two little projects from a review copy of an upcoming book (details to follow), making a few more 'multi-puffs' and even a little cochet circle or two. One of the little projects is already finished, so here are my three current works-in-progress...

WIPs

I have plans to cast on something else today too, although there is a slight hitch - I haven't decided what  it is. As ever, a few things are calling to me.

Do I need to mention that I'm still working my way through A Dance With Dragons?  At 1,045 pages it will probably be around for a few weeks yet but I'm enjoying it so much. I'm about half way through and the different threads of the story are all starting to come together so that I really don't want to put it down, but put it down I must in the next few days to begin the our book club choice for this month - the very different Sari Caste. I hope it's good.... or quick! 

I'll be back tomorrow with some needle geekery and an exclusive reader discount so I hope to see you then. In the meantime, you may like to visit WIP Wednesday and (later) Yarn Along and, if you missed it, my last post - thoughtful gifts for mums.

    1. Thanks. It's meant to be silver but I think it looks like 'grubby white'! :D

  2. Love the word - poly-wip-amous.
    So to get it rolling off my tongue here a sentence:
    "I know many polywipamoustic people that are incredibly inspiring, and I feel privileged to say that I belong to that group of people" - Does that work?
    LOL!!

  5. Your WIPs look lovely! I keep saying that I am going to read this series, but they are in such high demand at the library that I can never get my hands on them.

    1. How many times can you renew at your library? They are quite big books - I'd run out of time before finishing one! Hey, maybe it's the same couple of people just taking ages to work through them :)

  7. I too am making the puffs ... I'm way behind my planned one-a-day, though!

    I too love the lacy white thing. Look forward to seeing it done.

    1. I had the same issue. After trying a few different methods, I decided on scrappy looking high contrast stitches :)

  11. They look good! I absolutely adore your lacework, I can't wait to see the final product!

    I'm planning to feature Crafts from the Cwtch as the Plutonium Muffins "Blog of the Week" next week, if you don't mind? Do you have any 220 px wide images of your logo? If not, no worries, I can put something together myself! :)

  12. At the moment, I'm a bit of a monowipomist, but will get back to my poly. days next week once I get this project out of the way! The circle looks lovely. I've not quite been brave enough to try the puffs though...
