172, mostly thriftstore impulse buys, some gifts, some regrets. As you can see mine is not even close to this.
While packing I also found this:
THE BASKET OF SHAME or the UFO's graveyard (for my non-knitting family members UFO=unfinished objects), wanna see what's in it?
Top: It was going to be a scarf and then a purse, but I didn't like it, I like the yarn though, Lion Brand's Landscapes.
Bottom: A shawl out of the 25 cent yarn that I bought at Target, should've seen that coming.
Disco Monkey: Made out of 2 Bernat's Disco yarn that I got in the mail for FREE. I actually like the body, but I think the head needs a do-over.
A shrug, my own pattern. I ran out of yarn Moda Dea's Ricochet in Rock. If you have some that you don't want I'll take it! Still, I think the sleeves are too long.
My almost finished Knitting World Cup project (scroll down a bit). I'll probably have to frogg it beacuse it's too small.
My first pair of socks. I thought I was being clever by doing two at the same time, you know, to beat the "second sock syndrome", I guess I got bored with the color. I'll try to finish them on my way to Tx.
Beautiful sunburst sling bag in recycled silk. I only need to weave in the ends and sew the lining. It's a little bit on the heavy side.
This one I just started it about 2 weeks ago. It's the IK's heart sachet. I'm using a thriftstore silk yarn that makes my throat itch (bottom left corner, behind the green yarn on stash picture).
This is a hat for me. The yarn is Manos del Uruguay (Thanks! C-L and Ed). I finished it but didn't like it, so I'm doing it again.
A fingerless (and mateless) mitten. My own pattern, knitted on 2 straight needles. The thumb turned too tight, so guess what? I'm frogging it.
My first boobholder attempt, the yarn was too bulky.
The start of a Log Cabin blanket. I had a color combination planned out, but now I'm rethinking it.
Boobholder 2nd attempt, almost finished (keyword in all these UFO's is almost), all I need to do is weave in the ends and put a button. It's a present for a friend.
A scarf for my little brother, simple in a color that matches his school uniform.
So, what do you think? Do you have more UFO's? Let's see if I can dig up some FO's for the next post.
