Ok. I know, I have a problem. I have many problems, actually. This particular problem is the “so many WIPs, so little time” problem!
3 more UFOs were hiding in the back of my mind. It wasn’t exactly that I forgot them but I guess I didn’t want to think about them yet. But this is the Finish Along, and I want to keep you all motivated by making sure you know exactly how crazy I am. (Several people have commented how they feel better about their WIP/UFO pile, having seen mine – you’re welcome! See, we all have these things going on!)
I “finished” one mitten as a store sample and didn’t complete the second one. If we’re being honest, I didn’t really even finish this one! I didn’t weave in the ends or knit a lining for it. As store samples go, it’s been serving us well, but it would be better if I finished the pair, and had at least one with a lining so everyone could see what it was like. I started knitting the second mitten this spring and then lost it in the mess that is my guest room. In fact, I still haven’t dug it out. I’ll have to, though, now that I’ve told you all about it.
The first of this pair IS finished. Celeste came to teach a mitten workshop and I completed the first mitten as a store sample. I did cast on for the second mitt to knit along with the class participants, but didn’t finish the mitten itself. Must. Finish.
And, finally, this scarfy thing that I made up. I’m knitting garter stitch stripes on the bias with two different balls of Revel, which is a self-striping yarn. I like the contrast and the simplicity, but I’m not sure if I’ll be finishing this one. There’s only so much knitting time and I have a looooong to-do list. What do you think? If one of you wants to finish it, I’ll give it to you for free. Bring a pair of US size 4 needles to the shop and it can be your WIP, lol.
I THINK THAT’S EVERYTHING! This time, for real. That brings my current tally to 11, with one project finished so far.
