UFOs

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.
