WIP Challenge for 2021

When President Sarah W. moved last year, she discovered several boxes of WIPs (Works in Progress)--this is probably not a surprise to most of us.  Most of us probably have a few hiding in our stash!  So the WIP Challenge is to encourage you to finish as many WIPs in 2021 as possible.  So pull out all those projects that you started but failed to finish and let's get them done!

Wednesday night on Zoom from 6pm-10pm will become WIP club night.  Join in, bring a WIP and get help and encouragement from others to finish your WIP (or maybe even to frog it!)

We have a Ravelry discussion thread on our Slip Stitchers group where you can report your finished WIP's, including posting a picture.  Click here for the discussion thread to record your WIP's


If you enjoy our quarterly Knit- and Crochet-A-longs you can still make our:

 2020 Yearlong Blanket Make-A-Long

If (like many of us) you didn't successfully make a square each month in 2020 you can still find the patterns to make your blanket in either knit or crochet.

President Sarah provided us with a design for a square for each month in 2020 to make a blanket.  You can find Sarah's squares here or design your own!

Interested in a Knit-A-Long of Crochet-A-Long:  Here's some that members have found that might be of interest.  These are not official ESSS KALs or CALs, they are listed here in case any members are looking for a KAL or CAL


Sarah W found Crochet Along/Read Along that started on September 23rd,2020 


The designer is from the Netherlands and the book is “All The Light We Cannot See”, with the Author discussing it. For more information, click here and click here to see a photo of the blanket Phyllis made for the Crochet Along.

While there are kits available from Sheepjes, your local yarn store could also help you put together a "kit" and could probably use your support right now!

If you are interested in Tunisian Crochet, click here for a CAL using Tunisian Crochet (there's also a Tunisian CAL from 2020 linked on the same page if you would like to start out a little slower)

There is a thread on our Ravelry group (click here) with links to some other KAL's.  Some of them may already be over but often the patterns are still available.  You don't get the advantage of having a group to talk about the KAL with but you could plan a KAL with a group of friends
