I just finished Vaila! :woot: Now I’m about to start the next project (my Xmas knitting is done). Some WIPs are nagging me though… I am always the person who finishes one project before starting another. How did I end up with all the following WIPs? Help!!
I have a blue V-neck sweater that has been on the needles for months. It started out as a cardigan in a knitting class, which I hated and frogged. Then I finished the sweater but frogged part of it and reknit twice. Right now it’s frogged back about 10" and waiting to be knit AGAIN. The yarn was very expensive (bought at the LYS in class) and so I HAVE to finish this sweater.
I have CeCe (a lacy cardigan with 3/4 sleeves) that I was working on in the Spring. That’s bottom up and nearly to the point of joining the sleeves. Not sure why I put that one down. I have a feeling I will be very confused when picking it back up, though. I always feel like I’m taking such good notes on the pattern, then later I’m like “WTH?”
I have Sylvi (my biggest embarassment, hope Artlady isn’t reading!). That is in pieces, ready for seaming and the collar to be knitted. Just stalled when the weather got warm and I was getting discouraged by some probs others in the KAL were having. (Sylvi is a long coat with cables.)
I have Forestry (a cardigan), which has 1 button but needs 3 more sewn on. I have the buttons. I’ve been wearing it as is. I have no excuse for this.
I have a Clapotis that I work on occasionally. I’m about 2/3 finished. It’s a very boring pattern to me, and I think the yarn may have been a poor choice. It is nice and colorful to knit, but I probably will never wear a colorful shawl, and I don’t know anyone who will. That’s been OTN for months.
I also found a pair of Jaywalkers I started in my stash the other day. There were 2 partial socks, still OTN, in 2 different (but both too small) sizes. I hate that pattern and I know I’ll never finish those. Also in the stash are some swatches for the Urban Aran. I couldn’t get gauge and the labels for which needles I used fell off. Those will be so helpful now!
So… should I be ashamed? :teehee: What about if I have a pattern and yarn for a baby hat sitting here with me?
