On cleaning out some drawers and project bags a few weeks ago I found a couple of projects, hanging patiently on their needles. A scarf and a neck warmer. I started these objects last winter and then life must have distracted me because I put them away. I remember starting them both - they held my attention for a while - long enough for me to nearly finish both of them. I needed closure. I found the remaining colours I needed buried deep in my stash. The scarf needed about 20 more rows and fringed ends and lovely - I have a new scarf for winter!
The other UFO was a neck warmer which needed a bit more work on it than the scarf. I remember buying the wool from the "Wool Man" at Camberwell Market. Gorgeous stuff! It was a bit trickier as I had to remember the pattern I had used when I started making it - it has a couple of ribbed sections. I also had to work out how to do buttonholes and find some cute buttons. A few days later I had finished it and it worked out ok I think. Now I have a cute new neck warmer!
I feel a great sense of satisfaction having finished these projects and I am scouting around trying to find other forgotten UFO's to finish. I may even decide to remove the needles and return the knitting to its original home (the skein). Either way we both know where we stand.
Finish a UFO today!
