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!

New UFO Plan

I just can’t can’t can’t knit only one thing at a time,
especially when the one thing is something I got
bored with awhile ago and am finishing only as a
gesture of love for the recipient, rather than as
a challenge in its own right.

New Plan:
I will knit up to four things at a time.
I have to finish one before I can work on another.
In other words, no knitting seven things at once!

Currently up to bat:
1. Blue fingering weight merino scarf for dad.
2. Koigu pppm bookmark.
3. Goddess Knits Mystery Shawl.
4. Wild silk jewel tones basketweave scarf.

This is great, because the projects are varied,
in yarn, scope, difficulty, etc. Yay.
