I took some time this weekend to find all of the projects I have sitting around in various stages of completion. In no particular order:
1) Christmas ornaments - mini hats and mittens. These were supposed to be for this past year. Whoops. At least if I finish them soon I will have a head start on next Christmas! 50% complete.
2) Dale Svale Diamonique top. It would be nice to have the finished before summer. 35% complete.
3) Helmet ear cover thingies from Menknit.net. (I can't seem to find this pattern online anymore. Maybe I am just missing it?) For my Dad's motorcycle helmet; so his ears don't freeze when he is so anxious to ride he can't wait for it to warm up outside! The straps are not the same size/shape as the bicycle helmet straps the pattern is written for. The first cover I knit up was not quite right so I need to try again. So, that would be 0% complete I guess.
4) A Surprise. Originally supposed to be a Christmas surprise, but I was realistic enough to see that it might have caused a nervous breakdown if I rushed to finish in time. Probably the most complicated pattern I have ever attempted. 10% complete.
5) Unbiased - recycled silk purse from Knitty. This is complete; I just want to sew in a lining before I use it.
6) Fabric strip knit purse. This is a kit I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $5 a number of years ago. Not started yet - but it would be nice to have for the spring.
7) Bead Soup bracelet kit from Earth Faire. I made one of these for my Mom last year and it was very easy and lots of fun. 0% complete.
8) MaryElla bracelet from Knitty. Kit purchased from Earth Faire. 0% complete.
9) Chic Knits Ribby Cardi. I have two colors of Plymouth Encore to use for this and started a sleeve about a year ago. I am probably going to finish, but am half thinking of other uses for the yarn. 5% complete.
10) Felted Flower kits. I have three of these from Stitches Midwest last year. 0% complete.
11) Shedir hat from Knitty. Rowan Calmer, also purchased at Stitches. 0% complete.
This list isn’t as outrageously long as I was expecting. I am not saying that I am going to finish all of these before I start something else; but I do want to finish all of them before I buy any new yarn! I look forward to crossing a few of these off soon.
