I have quite a collection of UFOs. I keep saying that I will do something about them, but it never seems to happen, despite my best intentions.
Well, after I purchased that skein of rather lovely yarn recently I thought I had better finish the scarf I had on the needles.
This was started quite a few years ago now. Initially, I just knitted it in garter stitch, but wasn’t really happy with it. Then I found a pattern that I liked the look of, so simply pulled the needles out of what I had started and commenced the new pattern on the second ball of yarn that I had.
I didn’t get very far………..
It has languished in a box ever since……..
I looked at what I had on the needles now and knew that I wouldn’t finish it and even if I did, I wouldn’t wear it. Fashions have moved on. So, I turned my attention to the length of garter stitch knitting and picked up the stitches.
After a couple of evenings of knitting (great for while we were watching the first State of Origin footy game at Mick’s Dad’s) I had a nice long length. I had a little read on Ravelry and discovered that somewhere about 54 inches was a good length for my needs.
Next, sew it into a circle and I now have a nice, snuggly cowl to wear and don’t feel the slightest bit guilty about starting a new knitting project.
I might make a start while watching the final of the State of Origin series.
