Yarn Along - WIP Wednesday

I just discovered Yarn Along on a blog called Small Things (see my sidebar for the link), where we can share our knitting and crocheting projects. And since it's Works in Progess (WIP) Wednesday, and since I've generally been neglecting my crocheting in favour of my quilting, I decided it was time to highlight some of my crocheting WIPs. Maybe it will prompt me to get working on them.
This is an afghan I'm working on for my living room. I got a lot of this yarn when it was on sale at Wal-Mart. Purple is my favourite colour and green is my second favourite, so I really like this yarn. So far I have used it to make tiebacks for my living room drapes and a wrap for me. I have plans for some pillows and another afghan for my bedroom.
This is a zippered sweater I've been working on for myself for not quite forever. I got stumped on the sleeves because the instructions were so poorly worded, but I have finally figured that out and am well on my way to one finished sleeve. However, it's been so long since I've worked on it that I'm afraid I might have forgotten what I figured out. :-) Notice the purples and greens again.
This ruffled scarf is almost finished. I don't know why I don't just sit down and finish it off. Perhaps because I've been too busy at the sewing machine.
This is a baby afghan that I started several years ago. I finished a cardigan out of the same yarn for my grandson, 
 
but the yarn is not pleasant to work with. It has a shimmery strand in it that tends to separate from the rest of the yarn. By the time I finish it (if I ever do), my grandson will be too old for it, so I will just save it for another child. Besides I already gave him a much nicer one:
 
Ah yes, I actually do finish projects occasionally.
