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.

  1. I hear you! I put my project away because of that same reason. So HAPPY to see you working on the Claptois again. This looks like some warm yarn too. Just in time!

  2. I’ll say what everyone else is saying- that is a truly gorgeous colourway! I kind of feel like I can’t have too many WIPs, but then I’m a WIP addict. And I have more than a few large projects languishing in my WIP basket (a laundry basket in my kitchen- I’m so glam, it hurts).

  3. I had this happen to me with my Ms. Marigold. I was one ball away from a FO and had it crammed in a plastic bag next to the couch. You’ll be so pleased with yourself when you finish.
