Master Plan for UFOs

Does anyone else remember Shelley Duvall’s Faerie Tale Theatre?
In one episode, Puss ‘n Boots, the cat says in a purring voice,
“It’s all part of my plan . . . my master plan . . . ”
My husband and I have been repeating that line ever since
the kids watched that a million times in the 1980’s.

So, anyway, the plan is this:

I will not start anything new until all the UFOs are resolved
one way or another.
Either finished, frogged, or flung away.
Hey! I like that!

New Motto: UFOs must be Finished, Frogged or Flung!

Now to extract some Important Lessons from the UFOs.

My Favorite UFOs

The last group of UFOs! I saved the best for last.
These are items that I’m really looking forward to
working on, as soon as I clear out the underbrush.

Number Seven is an afghan I’m making as part of the
Afghans for Afghans project.
I just posted about it, so there it is.

Number Eight is a bag knit from ribbon yarn.
I’ve finished the main sections. Now I need to:
(a) make a lining from the scarf I found at the thrift shop;
(b) sew it all together;
(c) make an I cord from the other ribbon yarn, and;
(d) sew the button on.
Look! It’s pretty!

UFO Number Whatever Number I’m Up To is my first
lace scarf, barely started. It also was part of a class.
It’s lovely yarn and, like the ribbed scarf, its recipient
may become clear when it’s done.

UFO the Last I Hope is a Louisa Harding cardigan begun
last summer. I am determined to finish it.
It’s hard to tell, but the yarn is kind of sparkly.
