Well I have started very gradually working my way through those UFOs that have been lurking here and there throughout the house.
So far this week I have managed to complete three such said UFOS which are now FINISHED (mind you there are still plenty more to wade through). I thought that I would keep coming backwards and forwards adding and updating this post so that I have a visual record of those finished items; sort of like a homework report card. Thought it might keep me on my toes and keep me motivated.
2. Pink marled spiral scarf
3. White cotton crotcheted flannel
In between I have been working my large cream crotchet blanket and I have also knitted another square from the part work Knit n Stitch; a throw made of of knitted squares in various stitches and crotchet squares which I receive by way of a monthly subscription. I shall continue to keep working these when I have time in between everything else.
The Plan for Week 2
The plan is to finish working a small crotchet throw that I have been working in a teal colour and cream. The blanket rather than being worked in individual squares is worked in alternate colour strips. It is a lap throw and so I am hoping I will manage to get this finished. If I do I will turn my attention to another UFO and add it on. I will report again and update when I ave got a little further.
P.S. Here is the link to the free spiral scarf pattern for those of you who want to have a go :
Report on Week 2
Week 2 went well lthough I did not have as much time as I had hoped to set about this UFO, but I am pleased that I have at least managed to complete a full strip of 9 patches and sewed it on to the existing blanket. I am hoping that I will get another two to three strips out of the wool I aleady have and then I will edge the complete throw in cream as I have plenty of that at the moment.
Plans for week 3
More of the same as last week. Time permitting I will sit for a little while each evening and be able to work at least a patch a night. Will see how it goes, but I am determined to get this one out of the way with as soon as I can.. There is a good reason for this as the wool I using this blanket is Aran wool and iit housed in one of my wicker baskets which I want to rescue, and then line and use it in due course for something else.
