I sincerely hope that posting with others will encourage me (okay, kick me in the @$$) to finish some of these UFOs before starting others. I seem to have a terrible case of cast-on-itis. I picked up my needles about 10 months ago after a 20 year hiatus. Guess I've been trying to make up for lost time. On the needles currently:
a. 4 shawls
b. 4 pairs of socks
c. a twisted lace scarf
d. mittens that are about to be frogged.
Add to that, I've decided to learn to use a drop spindle. And I have several patterns sitting, begging to be knit.
On a positive note, I have managed to not cast on more socks until at least one more pair is finished. I have one pair of socks (actually 1/2 of the first sock) that I'll probably frog. Not in love with the pattern. And one of the shawls is a repeat of a pattern finished in a similar yarn, so I could probably reduce my UFOs by frogging it. I'll never understand the people who can work on a single project at a time.
Frogged one shawl, a silk modular tie (that I forgot to list), a bag (that I forgot to list because I hate the yarn!), the mittens, and I'm going to frog one pair of socks — if I can find them. Add to the list one pullover sweater with about 2 inches of the back done. With that small a start, does it really count as a UFO?
Had one toe-up sock almost finished when I decided that I could not live with the color pooling at the front of the ankle. Frogged it back to where the gusset started and switched to a different heel. It's back up to the leg patterning, and no pooling this time. Not crazy about the heel, but it's better than the color pooling.
Finished my Monkey socks and frogged 2 other pairs. One I just plain didn't like and the other was coming out too small. After finishing Monkey, I started a new pair with some Tofutsies, so I now only have 2 pairs started, the Tofutsies and some Meilenweit Mega Boots Stretch. Oh, and I also frogged one of the shawls last week. Now if I could just manage to clean my office...
