a big thank you to Lisa, Patti and Carli — you know, sometimes the pile just gets overwhelming and it takes some friends to help straighten it out.Â It took 4 hours to sort through the stack on the table, my desk, and my shelves and voila, now I can think again!Â Do you ever feel like that?Â So overwhelmed that you just don’t know which way to turn or what project to pick up?Â Â And, before you ask, NO, I will notÂ show you a picture ofÂ the before and after, but I will give you a list of my top tenÂ UFOs:
Cross Stitch Scarf (Andy’s Merino II, 101 Designer One Skein Wonders) – finishing today
Wristers (1 strand fingering wool, 1 strand mohair, my own design)Â – 1 down, 1 to go
Mexiko Socks (for moi’,Â 2 at a time, toe up, jojo heel, stretchy cast off) – at the heel, travel knitting
Peg’s Sweater – repair for a customer
Marilyn’s Sweater – Sally’s Favorite Summer Sweater finish for a customer
Penny’s Baby Sweater repair – Baby Uhl newborn design – I LOVE this yarn!
Felted Snowman – a quick, fun project, I’ve been working on it for almost a year I think
Vicky’s Prayer Shawl – finish by October for the Chilifest
Wrap Me Up – this moved back to my top ten when the sisters from Goshen stopped by with a little show and tell and one of them had this done in a combination of Noro, Donegal, and other odds and ends
Filigree Lace Shawl – this will remain on my to do list for a long time since it takes forever to get across a row — anyone interested in a lace knitalong to encourage me?
Ring of Lace Shawl – had to tear out and restart on bigger needles.Â This one is the most likely to become something else (I sort of like Anita’s feather and fan scarf she brought in better but am not quite ready to give up on this design yet).
There you have it, the top ten UFOs.Â The other UFOs went in a container (or two) in the back room.Â I think they’ll let me pull another one out when I have one finished.Â Or maybe I can start another one when I have one finished.Â Now, perhaps, I can concentrate on getting my list of classes ready for the fall.Â Classes will be Tuesday evenings, Thursday mornings and Saturdays all day.Â Â I have a list started, but not all the samples are done.Â I really like to concentrate on techniques vs. projects, can’t you tell?Â
Okay, tell me your Top Ten!Â
