ETA: That code is supposed to go HERE by the way... don't know why it's not...

Thanks so much to the wonderful hosts of these linky parties :)

Soooo.... a couple weeks ago, I was trying to organize my yarn stash, and came across a bunch of unfinished projects... A BIG bunch- most of which I had forgotten... :(

Ya, that's 11 projects. That is a TON for me. A few of them are even a couple of years old. Ya... I might have a teensy problem frogging things... 

1. Headbands. Started in yarn, decided to switch to cotton embroidery floss, as seen in here. Still don't know if I will do anything else with these half-finished originals.

2. Two toques awaiting embellishment. 

3. A third white toque started. Can't decide what pattern to use for body as they were supposed to be spring hats, and are now going to be for winter!

4. Another toque started. Again, can't decide to do for body of it.

5. Tried to make a pair of slippers for my daughter. There's actually two different experiments there. Started before I found Ravelry, and was just trying to come up with something on my own.

6, 7, and 9. All different attempts at making a baby blanket for my niece. 9 is a finished panel, 6 and 7 are attempts at different panels.

8. My Scrappy Ball. All the balls of yarn I get left with that are basically a fist-sized or smaller get wound onto it. One day it will be another Starghan.

10. A toque I started using cotton and eyelash yarn. Good in theory, bad in application. Apparently I'm just to lazy to unwind it!

11. A skirt for my daughter. Well, a poor start to a skirt... Again, tried to come up with something on my own, and it failed miserably. A LOT of time spent hooking, waiting for it to "take shape", and I am a little sad to rip it apart and start again.

This is only what I have in my bin, by the way. I also have all the headbands I've been plugging away at, a bag full of catnip balls from doing my first tutorial that need to be finished, and I still have to decided on what to do with my rainbow yarn.....

Anyways, if you've noticed any FREE patterns for awesome toques, slippers or skirts, I'd love to know where they are at so I can start getting rid of these projects!

What are YOU working on this week???? You should go sign up at these awesome linky parties too!!!

  1. You are a brave woman! I don't think I could ever show the world all my UFOs in one posting like that. Is this for accountability? LOL ...

  2. I think, inadvertently, this *is for accountability!!! Wait until I actually get all my things organized... I am sure I will have Even MORE wip's then!!! LOL

  3. Sometimes frogging is fun when you're in a bit of grumpy mood and don't feel up to actually making something...

  4. Oooh, I never thought of it like that... and I'm grumpy a LOT, especially if I don't get my cup of tea in the morning!!!

  5. too funny! I have so many started projects it's not funny. I'm heading in now that the baby shower is over again and bring out the quilt to pin the edges while I'm sitting watching Extreme Couponing and clicking on the computer.

  6. I don't know- frogging always makes me more grumpy! Good luck with your many projects! They look great!

  7. WOW, that's a LOT! I'd say frog the ones you aren't feeling very passionate about. You can love the yarn once again. A few of the projects, like the toques would be pretty fast to finish if you remember where you left off and have the pattern.

  8. Wow, that is an epic list. Good luck sifting through it. You've got some lovely stuff in there, I'm hoping for a better look at the embroidery floss headbands at some point -- they're pretty!

  9. what happened to the tutorial:(

  10. Did it not get posted??? I know Blogger had a huge fart not too long ago... I hope it didn't get lost!!! I will check right now.

  11. Yep, it got caught up in the Fart-fest. I had it scheduled to publish 5 DAYS but it was still just sitting there!

  12. Claire, Thank you so much for visiting my blog and your wonderful comment :)


Thank you so much for leaving a "hello"! You've really made my day :)
