UFOs



I have been posting in my online groups and bitching about my UFO status. I much prefer casting on and knitting to binding off, seaming, duplicate stitch, end weaving etc. I have offered $$ to help me clear up the clutter. While surfing I found a blog which provides support to those of us with similar issues, so I signed up. Here is a list of my UFOs, or AKA what's on the needles:

One mosaic afghan square stitch - halfway done - will finish this week

Cotton chenille flower washcloth - the knitting is quite tedious now that it is in the round...

Cardishawl in cashmerino superchunky -- need to unravel the sleeves, undo the bindoff, knit a bit more to make it a little longer, crochet a trim and make it a wrap, not a "cardishawl"

Not on the needles, but I should cast on another cable strip so that my 2 cables have some company and are on their way to becoming a blanket

the front/sleeves of the Victorian Jacket

Karabella mohair circular crochet shawl - perhaps I will repurpose that yarn into one of the many knit lace patterns I found while choosing an Amazing Lace project.

The Nicky Epstein fuschia purse. I have to knit one more handle - and then seam it, duplicate stitch, weave ends etc... The handle is a good carry in the purse project to pick up any time so I will cast that on and put it in my bag...

And then there is the sequin fringe to sew on the roses purse, and the seam to finish on the Chinese Lantern bag - and some cord to buy for the drawstring...

Problem is I have so many things in my queue! I have conceived and have all the components for a ripple wrap with the Judi & Co ribbon yarn that I've been pondering for some time. And then there is the lace projects in the previous post. The old cliche is true for good reason: so much yarn, so little time!
