Ughhhhh…WIPs…They’re haunting my dreams these days!
A few nights ago I pulled out all of my works in progress the other night and it was just shameful. Afghans, socks, sweater, shawls…SHAMEFUL!!!
*no photo because it’s just shamefulllllll*
So *deep breath* I’ve decided not to start any new projects I wrap up or frog a significant amount of my WIPs.
Yeah, I said it. No. New. Projects. Yes, a harsh line to take but it must be done.
So with that in mind, of the projects that I have languishing around, these are the three I want to wrap up by the end of February.
Original Start Date: January 23rd, 2011
Notes: Seriously, two years to make one pair of socks? TWO YEARS? And still on the first sock? Really? It’s not like this is some complicated sock pattern. I mean really, 90% of the sock is 3×1 ribbing with the rest of it being stockinette. Ugh. Gotta wrap this shit up.
Original Start Date: February 15, 2011
Notes: Creeping up on two years its two year anniversary. Hopefully I can knock this out fairly quickly. The majority of the body is done and it just needs sleeves and a yoke. Seriously, its bulky yarn on US 15…this should have taken a couple of weeks.
Original Start Date: January 8, 2013
Notes: Granted I started this a few weeks ago, but I’ve half been working on it. You know, a row here, a row there…whatever, some people have knocked this thing out in a couple of days. I’m already kissing the month mark and I’m not even halfway done.
I gotta wrap these projects up. Like ‘chop-chop’ style.
(I must admit, I secretly want to wrap up the Modern Garden Cardigan so my needles will be free to make Stephen West’s Garter Squish – it looks sooooooo squishy and it will totally eat up some of my stash – which is a whoooole other post…)
