New Year's Resolution WIP's Part 5

Here we are again, continuing on with my WIP New Year's Resolution project and with each post that I make sharing my WIP's, I feel a little more embarrased as I know that I have WAAAAY too many unfinished projects!  But still I'm sharing, as a way to keep myself accountable and moving along in these projects.  As of writing this, I've already finished 2 projects that are in my WIP box, and can't wait to start sharing the finished projects with you!!!  Don't worry, those will come soon, sometime after I finish up with all of these posts!!  So lets jump right into it with....
 
 
WIP #20 
 
Now this project is actually a conglomeration of a bunch of different motifs that I found and have put together for a sort of sampler blanket.  My husband is a very tall man and I wanted to make a blanket just for him that would be big enough for his frame, to give him his own blanket to snuggle up with on cold days.  I love the way that the squares are coming along, however, I shelved it when I was working on other projects.  I'm hoping to finish it this year and give it to him for Christmas!!
 
Seen in this first picture are: Celtic Knot Square and Double Treble Burst

WIP #21
 
So this blanket was based off of the baby blocks crocheted afghan.  I started based off of some designs that I had sketched out for 3 dimensional eye popping designs.  I got this far and decided I just didn't like how it was coming out!  I went ahead and changed the design and did end up creating something gorgeous, which will be coming to my website soon!
This project will probably be frogged and its yarn repurposed. :)
 
 
 
WIP #22
 
This blanket is for a very special little boy I know.  This is just one square, and sadly it is the only square that I have complete right now.  I need to delve back into the patterns and get the squares finished so maybe I can gift it next christmas!

 
WIP #23
 
I love this blanket.  I just can't figure out how to finish it!!  The center is that huge floral block that I designed, and I just love how it came out!  The long panels are for the sides, but I do not know what sort of block to put in the corners of the blanket.  (the pink and white side was the first one I made and then I decided that the sides needed to be in multiple colors and not so pink.  I still plan on finishing it, but need to decide on those darn corner squares.



 
WIP #24
 
Now these are an interesting bunch.  I can't tell you what all of the patterns are, as many of them do not have any pattern.  These are all little bits and scraps that are eventually going to make up a really unique CAL that I plan on hosting, made up of lots and lots of flower squares.  I've already picked this up and put it down several times, so it probably won't be the first thing I work on!



 
 
So there you have it, my next installation of WIP's that I'm working on.  Do you have any WIPS that you're trying to knock out right now?  Have you made one of these projects?  Leave me a comment below!!
