Presh-ious Knitting

A little blog about knitting. Well... mostly whinning about how little time I have for knitting.

Pictures to verify that I do still knit...

It's that time again, for a Guilt Trip*!

UFO** 1 - baby blanket for a friend who is expecting in October
Yarn: Bernat Cotton Tots Stats: 98% done, just need to finish border.
3 weeks to deadline.

UFO 2 - wedding afghan for a friend who is wed-ing in December
Yarn: ??? Stats: negative 10% done. Decided it needs to be done on #8s, so it's gonna get ripped and restarted.
5 months to deadline.

UFO 3 - Babette shurg for moi
Yarn: ??? and ??? Stats: 20% done, severly lacking ambition to start sleeves or fronts.
Time in drawer: 4 months, has a likely chance of becoming something else...

UFO 4 - Sunrise Circle Jacket from Interweave Knits Spring '05 issue
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers Stats: 15 % done, almost finished back
Time in drawer: yarn's been around since Janurary, made significant progress over vacation, I needed to find another ball in same colorway before I devoted more time to it

UFO 5 - Blue Swirl Blanket for new apartment
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton Ease

UFO 6 - pink baby dress for Hannah Mae
Yarn: Bernat Cotton Tots (seriously, good stuff) Stats: 75% done, need to finish right side and sew on ribbon.

Of course I've always got a few rebellious quickie projects going, like my mitered squares, warsh cloths, and a scarf that I whipped up this weekend. They don't acutally count aganist me, though, since they're so small. Speaking of small, here's my niece sticking her fingers in the nose of my Ben.... aren't they just the cutest??

* - I need a kick in the butt every now and then to hold myself accountable for
those larger projects that I start, abandon, and let pile up in my room. Since I'm moving soon, I want to get them done and out of the way before someone else (cough, Ben, cough) notices my schizophrenic knitting habits.

** - How many people came here looking for UFOs?
