I know what a wip is and a ufo but what do you call a project that isn't finished and is neither a wip or ufo? It has been dormant but will be finished. I have a couple of sweaters I started years ago before I had a family and rediscovered them recently. It has been at least 20yrs and I would have said ufo but not now.

Those sweaters would be hibernating UFOs. Are you gonna finish them?

LYS = Local Yarn Store... this being an actual yarn store not a craft store

All you lot are not making any sense with all your abbreviations it's all double dutch to me and you lot are so crazy:roflhard:

I think I'm in the wrong club here. I think this is called knit wits club instead of knittinghelp:roflhard:

I thought It might be finished object I wasn't too sure.::p

Yes, I am going to finish them. I have added them to my wips and now work on them when it their turn. I rotate my projects. I work on one and switch to another.
