Into the Light


Thank you for all the kind comments on my wrists last week. They have been feeling a lot better and I've been gradually getting back to the knitting. Which, as you can see, is a good thing since there are quite a number of projects in dire need of attention. I was inspired by Affiknitty's List as well as Eskimimi's Plan of Attack to brave the dark depths of my knitting basket and bring these UFO's into the light. Some of these have been hidden away for over a year or more (as evidenced by the wrinkles in the oh-so-neutral orange Whisper Cardigan). Most only require a little bit of effort to reach FO status (a sleeve here, a Kitchener stitch there). And one requires monumental will power on my part (the set-in sleeve yet to be seamed). So I am challenging myself to deal with these UFO's, one way or another, by year's end. There are actually more UFO's still tucked away in the basket, but I had to be realistic and give myself a fighting chance. Clockwise from top left: Whisper Cardigan, Ribbed Lace Bolero, Blue Heron beaded wrap, Omir, Broken Rib Socks on two circs, Grapevine, Turmeric and Daybreak, which is actually a WIP. In the center is Henry the Grumpy Bear who refuses to leave his cupboard unless he gets all of his limbs. Soon, Henry, soon.

Still can't get enough of UFO's WIP's? Then tune into WIP Wednesdays with TAMI'S AMIS and these talented ladies.

  1. So glad to hear that your wrists are on the mend! And that's a pretty big list you've got going, but it looks like most everything is almost done. You should be able to knock them out pretty quickly. I'm sure Henry's relieved (and SO CUTE!).

  2. What a beautiful collage of WIPs! (Easy for me to say, since they're not mine to finish...) But really, you choose such good yarns and projects. I love the orange of the whisper cardigan.

  4. You have so many beautiful projects! I went through my WIP basket a few months ago, and it felt very refreshing to start with a clean slate-- good luck!

  5. You can do it! Finishing these will make you feel terrific -- they are too beautiful to be abandoned. (No pressure, just encouragement!)

  10. I have a stray sock that needs to be finished. My other UFO's will just have to wait. Glad to hear improvement with the wrists.

  11. Any one of those projects would be a major undertaking for me (gosh, I like that bright pink!), and you're tackling all of them? I am SO impressed.
