Month of the UFOs

As I've mentionned before, it is my goal to finish my current projects before I start new ones (though the fair isle sock doesn't count as a current project, I'm still not sure I'll ever finish it, let alone its twin). To keep me motivated, I joined this:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I invite all of you who want to finish those beautiful objects to join too!

I was hoping to post progress pics, but I'm at my mom's for the weekend and I forgot my camera. But here's an update anyways:

Mariah: Things are going well, but I have to tell you, those yoke rows are going a lot slower than I expected. Of course there's over 300 stitches on the needles (the good news is that I decrease every right side row). I'm not sure I'll finish it before the end of my holidays, but I'll try.

Kiri: I worked on it today during the hour long bus ride to my mom's. I love that thing, which is good because it's going to be almost the only thing I'll work on after I finish Mariah.

I say *almost* because of course I'll need to cast on a pair of socks (or maybe I'll go with slippers) so I have something to bring to knitting meetups. But new socks don't count as new projects (as long as I don't have more than one OTN, fair isle socks non included).

I got an email from Elann this week about a sale on this nice hemp yarn. I was very tempted since I remember a beautiful pattern made with hemp in a back issue of Interweave. I resisted, though, because I have many things on my dream knit list already. The colour I wanted (raspberry) is all gone anyways.

I'll end this post by saying that I love the orange sweater on the front of the new Knit Simple. Love it.

Hi Caroline! Your red socks look great! I'm so glad you decided to join us for UFO August and thank you also for helping to spread the word! And about that Hemp yarn.... no one said you couldn't buy yarn in August and save it for those fall projects ;-)

I'm going to be working on UFO list this weekend... I'm dreading it -- it will be quite embarassing!

Can't wait to see your progress pics on the UFO site! Take care!
