2011 UFO Parade, Part 2 – All Over but the Finishing

It’s really stupid that I have so many UFOs that are actually finished,
except for the finishing, if that makes sense. And here they are:

A little item I call “Play Safely” – just the right size for …. safety.

There and Back Again Accessories Mosaic change purse, designed by Susan Pandorf:

Ribbon Yarn Bag
I can’t believe I finished the knitting on this two years ago! This must be finished! I’ve found lining fabric, buttons, etc.

Last Category – Emergency or “Idiot” Knitting that can be done anywhere.
Prime example, this silly scarf:

2011 UFO Parade

This year’s plan to reduce the number of UFOs:
Divide into categories:
1. Big projects that require close attention (lace shawls).
2. Emergency knitting projects that can be done anywhere (bookmarks).
3. Projects with all the knitting complete, that lack only finishing, seaming, etc.

New Rules:
Only three at a time, one from each category.
No starting anything new till they’re all done.

Exception to New Rule:
Clubs I’ve already joined – True Colors and Little Mermaid.

Here are the big projects that I need to pay attention to knit successfully:

Ruth’s Tunic

Through the Looking Glass


Louise Harding Cardigan

Those are the tricky ones, that cannot be done while doing six other things. Well, actually, the cardigan isn’t tricky, but it’s big, so I included it. Next post – the other categories!
