After sorting through my yarn stash and various unfinished projects, I've decided that my primary knitting / crocheting goal for 2012 is to finish what I've started. Why a person (myself included) is inclined to set a project aside to start another (and another and another), is a mystery to me. Yet, that is exactly what I do. Is it a rare form of A.D.D. for yarn addicts? A lack of follow through? Whatever it is, I've determined to overcome and conquer -- to (finally) finish what I've started.
These three skeins from my yarn stash, each purchased with a purpose, will be knit or crocheted into (from left to right) a pair of slippers, a scarf, and a pair of wrist warmers.
This pathetic-looking UFO was put onto stitch holders long ago. Why? Who knows. What I do know is that it's my attempt at making an adult pair of my Knitted Boots for Babes, and I intend to finish them!
This wrinkly item is a lacy shawl I started so long ago that I can't remember how long it's been. The poor thing was abandoned when I dropped several stitches and gave up trying to fix my mistake. Lord willing, and once I pick this one back up, I'll be able to repair the ruins and complete this beauty of a project.
Daniel's vest. I completed this last year for Easter, but he's grown (tons) since then. I intend to lengthen it so he can wear it again this year. Thankfully, I saved the yarn that was left over rather than tossing it.
Knitted Boots for two sweet babies born to church friends. All that's left is to make and weave a tie into each so they stay on tight. Planning to finish these later this week. :)
Projects I completed a few weeks ago...
Wool slippers for AnnaLynn and Daniel. :)
A cotton bonnet for yet another church friend's sweet babe.
And until this one is finished, the rest will have to wait. It's getting sooo close!
But! Before I sign off, I just have to share this...
Two shelves of worsted weight, one shelf of cotton, one shelf of fine to chunky, and one shelf of misc. On top is a bin full of hooks & needles and two others with various other UFOs.
Goal #2: I won't be buying any yarn this year. :)
