Work in Progress (WIP) is shorthand among crafters for a current project, something that you’re knitting, sewing, painting, making. The understanding in sharing updates on WIPs is that progress is being made — that you’re another step or so closer to finishing.
#WIPWednesday is a chance to share such progress — for example, a sock that now has a heel and part of a gusset.
I’ve said before that part of what I love about knitting is finishing. This is especially true when the rest of life is filled with repetitive undertakings that can seem never ending.
Yet some of those WIPs are the most valuable. Take this little guy, a Work in Progress of the highest order.
Young William arrived a couple of weeks ago, and, according to his completely smitten (and very wise) grandmother Pat, his favorite snuggly item is her most recent project — this lovely blanket.
