If you subscribe to Interweave's Knitting Daily, you've no doubt been reading the data about unfinished objects (UFOs) in each of our stashes. Many of you recall the horrific amount of UFOs that Louise and I had in our stashes last spring during out Lenten challenge to guild members. . . You'd think that after counting 41 in my personal stash, and then stressing about finishing them all, I would have learned my lesson.

Apparently not.

As Ravelry continues to suck my time away, I found myself taking pictures of my UFOs and uploading them to my notebook there. I found 22 projects on needles. . .and now that I think of it, I think there are two more that I never uncovered from the layers of stash they're hidden behind. (We'll ignore that fact, shall we?)

Sally sent a picture this week of her UFOs too. . .I think I counted 18 of them in all (sorry for outing you Sally. . .)

And Kim has some on her Ravelry page that I've NEVER seen, let alone heard of!!

The good news is, that I've been encouraged to complete some of these. Many needed only a bit of knitting or buttons, or a random seam sewn togther. . .not a lot of work. But still, not complete. Here is the result of my diligence in turning these UFOs into a thing of the past. . .

I'm down to 10, if you don't count the 3 in hibernation and the 2 I forgot to count. It's not the destination, but the journey. . .right?

Don't forget to send pictures of your stash, UFOs, or finished objects to me (tanya_tho at yahoo dot com) and I'll post them here, until we're all on Ravelry and can snoop all we want!

tanya, I liked your comment about never having heard of some of Kim's UFOs. Isn't that part of what's up w/ our UFOS? Sort of like guilty little pleasures that we don't like to talk about, or bring up, if they don't happen to be bringing us the pleasure we thought they'd once bring? Whoa! Way too much therapizing on that issue -- chris h.

Happy New Year!

Our first meeting of 2019 was very busy. We said goodbye and thank you to our former president, Kate, and introduced our new president, Merritt, along with our new Vice President, Barb.

Merritt welcomed our guests and then members shared any new finished projects. The skill level and talent in our guild is very impressive!

Order forms for new BSKG t-shirts were handed out. Remember to turn your order in by January 31.

We kicked off the Sneaky Sheep project. It’s a bit challenging but will be fun. Kim W. presented on how to design your own hat pattern. She had several great resources and handouts to help us get started. At our February meeting bring in your design to participate in the exchange.

The make-n-take was natural moth repellent sachets. We filled small muslin bags with rosemary, lavender and a bay leaf. The room smelled like a spa! Handouts were provided for anyone interested in knitting a bag for their sachet using the double knitting technique.


Sorry for the screaming, but it's 5 am and I've been up knitting for awhile. Joanie and the neighbors surely wouldn't appreciate the volume I've pent up, so you get to hear me rant.

I was unable to sleep well and woke up far earlier than my usual "I can't sleep early mornings"--I found out I have no brake lights when Joanie followed me home from the Coffee Beanery last night. I had big plans with a 6 year old this morning that are going to have to be rescheduled so I can resolve the safety issues, so I'm a bit upset. Wondering how a well planned day is going to be messed up can really screw with your sleep schedule, you know?

What does a knitter do when upset? KNIT!

I picked up my Pi shawl and began working on the edging, hoping to get it finished today. I was peacefully listening to some podcasts and making REALLY good progress. A few minutes ago, I picked it up and I could actually see the light at the end of the tunnel! I counted the stitches an…

Brown Bag Gift Exchange

At our December guild meeting we had a trunk show by a few of our new members. Thanks for sharing!

We also had a show and share of any projects knit from the last retreat swag.

The fun began when we had our annual Brown Bag Swap! Participants brought in a gift in a bag and got a chance to pick a bag or steal a bag when their number was called. The items that got the most "oohs" and "aahs" were of course also the ones that got stolen the most. There were cute lambs, lovely yarn, stitch markers, and a lot of other goodies!

Julia delivered the pies that were ordered from Achatz. Thanks, Julia!
