The Pull of September
Buggin' Me!

It's Time for the Fat Lady to Sing

I have many knitting ideas . . . inside my head. . . waiting to becoming reality.

Only one thing (well, technically it would be four. . . )  is holding me back:  unfinished projects!

Yes, my friends.  It's time for the fat lady to sing!

Opera-singer..class

So, before I can begin any new projects, I need to wrap up these bad boyz. . .

Yeah.  There's this mess.

(Bet you're jealous now!) 

And this adorable little nearly-finished bag. . .

that's been hanging around since it fell out of favor during my March Madness rampage. (Stalled out due to running out of yarn.  If you look closely, you can see where.)  Blocking.  Lining.  Futzy braided handle.

And this waiting-to-felt bag . . .

that I got roped into making kindly volunteered to make as a shop sample for my local yarn shop (where I work on Wednesdays).  The knitting was quick; the finishing?  Not so much.  Felting.  Hardware.  Lining.

And my only current project on the needles . . .

is a lovely lace scarf.  The pattern is un-memorizable (for me, at least), so this is rather slow-going.  (But lovely.)

So.  Onward then.  To finishing!  So the fat lady can sing.  And I can knit something new!  (September = Fresh Start, even when it comes to knitting.)

I'd like to finish up some knits and start new stuff, too, but I just don't seem to be making much forward progress these days. Good luck with your goals - it will be worth it in the end!

You have a bunch of finishing to do, but each one will give you a big sense of accomplishment. Suzy and I picked our Retreat project yesterday. Fresh starts are always refreshing.

Marilyn

We're on the same page! I'm working on finishing up projects too. It just seemed like the right time. Good luck with yours! I hope I have the stick-to-it-iveness to finish all of mine. :)

Patty

Oyyyy I don't even want to think about the UFO's stashed away. But there are two going that need to and will be, finished up soon!

Rachel

You are so disciplined not starting a new project until you finish the old ones, just saying... not admitting anything! :)

Vicki

Yikes! That vest... looks terrific finished, but... wow.

I have UFOs older than your blog. ;)

I don't knit, but that first unfinished item scares the hell out of me! Good luck with that! Those bags will be great when they're done and I LOVE that scarf! It's a real beauty!

Brenda

OMG on that vest! I have a vest (not so many pieces) at that stage. The designer was big on having the knitter adapt the pattern to fit, so I made it shorter (something she recommended for my body shape), and now there is no way to make the fancy stitch "button" bands fit. It put it in a plastic bag in a drawer. I'll rip someday.

You Kym are my hero! I told myself I'd finish my Ingenue before succumbing to Color Affection....guess what- I'm into the second section of the shawl - the sweater sitting there just needing a sleeve.

Cookie

Woo Hoo!

Just think of all the wonderful things you'll have to show us when all the finishing is finished. ;^)

Now can we see my Jenny please?
