neighbours neighbors to the South are currently celebrating their day of giving thanks (and eating turkey), I thought I would join in too. Why? Because I finished the scarf that would not die. Seriously. Can’t. Believe. I am. Finished. Wahoo!! So, it looks like I did me some Christmas knitting after all.
And, to make this pie even sweeter, I also finished Emerald.
Now, just because I feel like displaying my dirty little secrets (snicker), here is a list of all my UFO’s.
Secret Project(shhh), Storm Water Scarf, Plain Vanilla Socks, Bunny Swirl Socks, Monkey Entrelac Blanket, Straight Laced Socks, Anniversary Socks, Monkey Pants, Entrelac Scarf, Felted Clogs and, a Cabled Baby Sweater. (Note: all links are ravelry links).
Whew, that’s a lot of UFO’s…
It’s to keep track, using Ravelry. And, it also this prevents the urge to start something new – at least for the most part. I will admit, I am prone to fits of madness in which I cast on for big projects and actually need to by new needles because there are none free. Thankfully, now that I have two projects completed, I am that much closer to having a list of UFO’s under 5. For me, this is the optimum number.
And, I have finished the Little Coriolis socks and they are spectacular. Once again, say it with me, “Cat Bordhi, you are a genius”. I seriously love this pattern. It has opened my eyes to the possibility that socks can be worked so many different ways. I love that gussets will no longer follow one or two formulas, but will be worked according to the preference of the designer and the goal that they are hoping to achieve. I sat down with a friend the other day who opened my eyes to the fact that new pathways will be achieved in knitting as time goes on and people can knit for fun, rather than for necessity. Too cool.
