My UFOs
Okay -- after gathering together all my UFOs, I discovered that several of them I didn't care for so I frogged them. Here are pictures of the ones I am going to put on my list to finish --

Knitted Lei from Handcrafted Leis & Flowers volume 6
I started knitting this red & blue lei for Bug (one of my charges) to give to him when he arrived -- I got so busy & sick I didn't get to finish it & ended up buying one for him, his sister, and mother. I will probably finish it, but save it for when friends come to visit.

This is going to be a Elegant Comfort Shawl. I cast it on before August 1 but was hopping back & forth on whether I would still do it or not until yesterday. I'm using the Bernat Bamboo Natural Blends in "wicker" & size 11 needles.

I have a feeling that a LOT of us will be choosing to go to the frog pond with some of our stuff.

I've decided that I'll work on the most tedious and time-consuming ones first!
Then the least tedious will go faster....

I'm doing the opposite. For the sake of feeling like I've accomplished more, I'm starting with the projects that are going to take the least amount of time.

I found the last UFO today when I was unpacking kitchen stuff --- Have no earthly clue why I packed in that particular box

Click image for larger version

Name:	Garter-Stitch Scarf on the Diagona 2l.jpg
Views:	81
Size:	92.3 KB
ID:	49393
Stitch pattern How to Garter Stitch a Scarf on the Diagonal found in the back of Scarf Styles -- thanks to the help of a lovely LPL reference librarian -- aka Elbowgrease on Ravelry. We've been playing phone tag this week trying to figure out what book it was from & it wasn't until I unpacked my pattern books I found some actual scarf patterns we cross referenced with patterns on Ravelry.

I can help you with that --

Right click on the image -- a box will pop up and at the bottom is "Properties". Click on that. Within the info is the "Address"/URL for where the image is stored -- I highlight and copy that address. Then go to your User Settings at the top of the page --> edit signature --> add in whatever written info you want to & then click on the "insert image" box within the tool bar (image of mountains & sun) -- make sure to allow pop ups --> paste the URL --> save the changes after previewing your signature.

I hope I got it all right.

I'm not sure which way I'll go....probably this way and that way. This morning, I picked up the red socks I started long ago. I want to try to have them ready for my son's birthday in a couple weeks.

When I looked on-line to see if I could find it, the patterns that came up weren't done in the same way. Thankfully, I remember enough of the pattern to finish it. I also lost the tag for the yarn -- do remember I got it at Craft Mania in Auburn, ME.
I found a few on Google - Diagonal Garter Stitch Scarf Search

I hope that auntcrafty's instructions help you!
There are instructions for "posting photos" linked in my signature. You can use those same instructions for posting a button in your forum signature. Just go to your profile, and click "Edit Signature" to put the button there.
