Okay, I've decided to set the record straight about which projects I'm actually working on. Lestrella called me on the carpet the other day, saying that she was wondering if I have finished all the projects I've talked about in the forum.

Well, it was reckoning day for me, I guess. I had to admit that sometimes I have lost interest in some projects, and just frogged them. Other times, I didn't really like the way they looked. So, they went the way of the frog also. :teehee:

So, here is a list of all the projects I started, but never finished. To redeem myself, I will also list the projects I'm still plugging away on. So, I'm not really THAT bad, I guess. :)

Unfinished Objects that were FROGGED:

Garter Stitch Tunic (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=183663&highlight=garter+stitch+tunic#183663) - Didn't like how thick the knitting was. Decided I would rather have a thinner top.

Cat's Paw Socks for Angelia (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=15033&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=cats+paw&start=0) - never could get the "cat's paw" lace pattern to be the right size around the ankle or leg.

Wimple with Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=256128&highlight=bliss+wimple#256128) - the wimple was not "laying" right, and I didn't see the purpose of trying to block a circular garment, that would just be laying around my neck most of the time. :shrug:

Irish Hiking Scarf (http://www.flickr.com/photos/59646927@N00/118407170/in/set-1808355/) - I'm not too thrilled with wearing a scarf that has a right side and a wrong side.

Dipsy Cable Lace Scarf (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21589&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=malabrigo+scarf&start=0) - same problem. The design looks bad on the wrong side.

Fall Shrug with TLC Essentials (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=274732&highlight=fall+shrug#274732) - I didn't like how wide the arms were on the shrug, so I've decided to look for a different pattern.

Sweet Delight Socks (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=297491&highlight=sweet+delight+socks#297491) - I didn't like the way the yarn felt. Not what I wanted to wear on my feet.

And NOW, here are the UFO's that I'm still working on:
Willa Top (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=437137&highlight=willa#437137) with Incredible yarn
Noro Kureyon Bag (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=235710&highlight=noro+bag#235710)
Socks for a musical friend
Rust Thick & Quick Sweater (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=124190&highlight=thick+sweater#124190)
Cozy, with Indiecita Alpaca yarn (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13392&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=cozy&start=0)

Oh! And I recently finished two items.
Baby Afghan for Charity (http://www.flickr.com/photos/59646927@N00/461034873/)
Wrist Warmers with Sock Yarn (http://www.flickr.com/photos/59646927@N00/461034867/)

now, don't you feel better? :teehee:

Yeah. It was like an hour spent at the altar at church during Revival. Or, the equivalent of a good Catholic person after going to confession. :teehee:

You also finished a pair of socks. The one you were wearing on our first meeting, remember?

Thanks, my friends! :teehee:

Lestrella, I didn't list everything I've knit. If I did that, it would take up a whole page! :rofl:

AND you are managing 3 oddball blankets!

Shandeh....
you are living the dream! :notworthy:

Yeah, I used to be a big-time dreamer. Then, I went through major depression, finally realizing that some things are more important than money. Like peace of mind, or pursuing your dreams and goals.

Then, I made a list of all the things I wanted to do before I die. Knitting and Spinning Yarn were two of the things on the list. :)

Whoa boy, you must have felt really guilty if you got that "walk down the aisle feeling!" As a Baptist, I understand that feeling! lol Hey, I am sure most folks have done it. I am just too OCD so I plug along until I finish the project even if I hate it! lol

I just can't make myself do that. If I don't like something, I don't want to waste any more energy on it. :shrug:

Thanks Jenelle and jeanius80! :hug:

jeanius80, I used color 128 for the Noro Kureyon bag (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=235710&highlight=kureyon+bag#235710). Here's a photo I found online that shows that yarn very well. It has all my favorite autumn shades. :heart:

You made a pink shawl, which I'll photograph later. Bucky (the dog pictured in my av) had a lawn party with the spare yarn, btw.

And you made two pairs of red sox that are the same identical color, never mind the photos below.

I forgot about those! I made them long before I joined the forum, so I wasn't taking photos then. Thanks, Sis! :hug:
