Knitting UFOs

Mom and I were looking through my stash to see if there was anything she could use. Since she knits worsted weight sweaters for toddlers and I knit lace shawls, socks and generally do fine work, I was betting there was nothing in my stash that would interest her.

However, we cam across one of my UFOs. It’s the Nantucket Jacket from Interweave Knits that I started almost 3 years ago! I had the back done and was almost to the armholes on the sides but that’s as far as I got. I think I might have gained too much weight for it now but I won’t know until I finish. Mom keeps saying she’d like to have it if I can’t wear it and her wish might come true!

I have started working on it again and am really enjoying it. Even though I am looking at the sock, thigh-high stockings, mitts and a plethora of other projects in both weaving and knitting that still have to be done.

To make matters worse, I am planning projects. That’s what comes from pawing through the stash. Planning projects! I have to find more storage space for stash I keep acquiring and planning. I found the yarn and the patterns for several more projects. I bought it all at the same time for patterns that came from the same magazine. None of them got started except the Nantucket Jacket.

The other day I got some beautiful Sari silk yarn. That’s for some warp threads in a weaving but what it will be used with and when it will be used are up in the air. There is some ribbon yarn at Knitter’s Underground I have had my eye on for over a year. I haven’t gotten it and I’m not sure what I’d do with it if I were in possession of said yarn. I don’t know that not knowing the use is any reason not to buy the yarn anyway but there’s the excuse for not buying it.

I think I need to find an independently wealthy sugar daddy or win the lottery.

Oh! I had forgotten I got that yarn for the autumnal entrelac bag! Gotta go!
