UFO Resurrection!

I am not one to have a bunch of UFOs.  If I stop working on something, it’s generally because the project wasn’t working for me in some way, and it is ripped in pretty short order.  In fact, I think it’s safe to say that I only have one real UFO…

Remember this?  Started on November 28th last year, it is my second Clapotis.  I love my original Clapotis, and have worn it nearly to death, but at the time I think I was feeling discouraged about my ability to make successful large projects.  Last night I was thinking about how a cozy stole would be nice for this time of year, and I realized I had a half completed one waiting in the wings.  So I took it out (so that’s where all my stitch markers went!), reattached the needles, figured out where I was in the pattern, and added another repeat.  It’s at 5 repeats of the straight section out of 12, and I think I’m going to go ahead and finish it.  I adore the colors, and it will be nice not to have it hanging over my head anymore.  This puts me in the crazy position of having 4 WIPs, which is just unheard of for me, but I will concentrate on Thermal and Clapotis right now.
