At any given moment I have a lot of WIPs. Some are a few weeks old, some a few years old. And I think it’s time to give some of these and myself a solid kick. Finish it or Frog it. First up is my oft neglected Hitchhiker in my Mordor handspun. I think I worked on a handful of teeth last YEAR.
This is even worse when you consider in the week I started it I did 20 or so teeth as I traveled for work. Its more than halfway done and all signs point to there being enough or more than enough yarn to reach 42 teeth. So what’s the hold up? Every other shiny project that crosses my path.
On even worse, I’m going to go with the Lothlorien Cape cast on in 2011. I want to finish it. I really do. But signs aren’t good. I frogged back and fixed the error that initially plagued me then never worked on it again.
Dad’s Christmas Socks gone wrong, now my socks to never finish…
Mystery KAL from 2012 where I managed to finish around 50% of a pair of socks but do not have a single sock to show for it. Skills!
The fingering twin to my Chilly Podsters. The silk hankie gloves, and the mitts I started to match a Habitat hat I ended up giving away. The last have a high chance of frogging.
Bayside… The only sweater on the list so far… Let’s keep it that way *knocks on wood*
Bloomery I’d like to believe I worked a couple rows on you…
Rock Island…first I would have to stop using those needles in every other project.
The Marvel Scarf…Oh dear I even have a Shield square and an X-men square all charted out to be the right size…
The Lantern Corps Scarf with a White BG… I think I was missing green which I have long since gotten, I should finish that soon…maybe, I even have a picture of myself working on the orange square.
So nearly 5 squares done as of Dec 2013…
The one scarf I wondered about putting on the list, the There and Back Again Scarf in blue and white. I put this down for a couple reasons, I want smaller needles or thicker yarn. But I liked the yarn I was working with, and do have enough to ply it… Decisions like this tend to be what leaves a project languishing for a while
And one WIP I can’t find Ravelry tells me I have a tilting tardis Cowl WIP. I don’t have a finished cowl but I also seemed to have misplaced the one on the needles. I remember thinking about frogging it but I have a lot of yarn that looks like that Tardis blue. So I will explore some more. So 13/14 WIP projects to reel in. I keep expecting another project to just appear. I just have to hope I’m wrong and there is nothing lurking in the shadows.
I think the best plan is to in June, revisit this list. Anything I still haven’t touched will have to go to the frog pond. Anything I knit even a couple rows on, will have a reprieve until December before it is evaluated again.
