One of my UFO's has been taken care of by just frogging the thing! It WAS a shawl with different bands of yarns with a black alpaca base. I didn't use the alpaca in the bands..just the different yarns and found that I didn't like it that way as it looked a bit disconnected to me. So I frogged it and am going to re-do it with the alpaca all the way thru..now will that count as a new project or as a UFO that I am finishing?
I still have yet another shawl out of a very thin yarn (and not so soft!) I planned on a summer shawl but when I started it I didn't like the feel of it..it was too rough and not open enough..it needs to be frogged too!,a hat for my grandson and another for his sister, a pair of felted clogs, several pairs of started and not finished socks, and some things that I haven't unpacked yet and have forgotten about!! I moved recently so there are UFO's in a box somewhere on my porch.
I also have spinning UFO's..but I am supposing that they will not count here. I have several skeins of alpaca done for a shawl....but more fiber in the bag to be done, and some lace weight I have been spinning for my grandaughters project for Valentines day, and some grey shetland that I am spindling in lace weight which I will then dye and mix with another spun yarn for a shawl to sell. I am hoping that they also count as UFO's!
I am hoping that this group will give me a needed kick in the behind to get these things finished so that I can make an earlier than usual start on my Christmas knitting/weaving! I want to be done with that knitting by Thanksgiving so that I am not under the usual pressure of knitting/weaving at the very last moment before the gift is due!
