2010: A time to finish





These are most of my unfinished knitting and quilting projects. That chevron blanket was started sometime between 2000 and 2002. I think it's time to clear out these artifacts. I started the year in a mood to unload, I have boxes filled with items to donate, I have a hearty determination to tackle the tupperware cupboard (the scariest place in my house). It WILL be, and stay, organized this year. Next year is anyone's guess.

So, in my large wooden chest where I keep all my yarn and where I put away the UFO's I don't care to even look at any longer, I have a few unfinished socks and only one more Christmas stocking to make up. There's that pale green chevron blanket I love, yet loathe to complete. Mary's wedding quilt has been hibernating since Adrian was born a year and a half ago. Anne's cream color cable baby blanket needs concentration that I cannot give it while the littlest ones are awake, but I am often too exhausted for it once I get them off to bed at night to touch it. There may be a few more things lurking in the corners of that chest and I will air them out and get them done before I start anything new. This is a reasonable goal, but I am not counting the quilt getting done this year. Just the unfinished knitting. Happy New Year, and I'll keep in touch on how this goes.

Love the little white blanket. I'm very jealous of your mad knitting skills. :)
I'm tackling my own work in progress pile. It never gets any smaller! But then I keep thinking of spiffy new projects.
