August KAL - Turn UFOs into FOs!
If you're like me, you have a TON of UnFinished Objects (UFOs).
(I have TEN knitting projects in progress right now.)
I wish I could get them all completed, so I would have lots of pictures of FOs (Finished Objects) to post in the forum.

So, our August KAL is:
"Turn your UFOs into FOs!"

Gather up all the parts of that sweater, and SEAM IT!

Complete those half-finished socks,
and be ready to wear them in September!

Put together all those squares,
and have an afghan ready for Fall!

Finish that baby blanket so a little one can enjoy it!

Dig through your knitting or crochet bag,
and pull out that Christmas stocking you started last year.
You'll be able to hang it on the mantle this year!

I don't know about you, but I'll be happy as a dancing Granny if I finish just ONE of mine!

And the best thing about our KAL is....it won't cost a THING!

Here's sad...I've only been knitting for about a year and I have 2 UFOs...both are blankets for the 2 babies that my niece & nephew are adopting...the paperwork has slowed things down (long story) and I guess I got a little discouraged and haven't gotten back to them.

So...I'm in!

I sort of had an excuse for the past few weeks, but that ended Tuesday when the shipping container was delivered. I of course found all my UFOs last night while rummaging through my stuff to see what I could send with our missions team to Nepal tomorrow.

I can't wait to see your stuff, Jan!

I'm not sure which UFO I want to work on first - here are my choices.

Harry Potter scarf for my hubby:


Red ankle socks for my son:


A bulky sweater I started THREE YEARS ago:


A pretty shawl:
