UFO Count

Having set a goal to rid myself of UFOs in 2018, I thought I’m better do a  UFO count and commit to dealing with them. So after some rummaging here’s what I found:

Knitting UFOs

The mitred mystery – last worked on in August:


‘That’ scarf – last worked on in July.


Another scarf – a UFO from 2016 that I didn’t even find when I went on my UFO hunt last year:



The quilt for my bed:


I bought fabric for making cushions for various rooms some 3/4 years ago. Not started – so technically not UFOs, but since I’ve been meaning to make them for so long they’re sapping my energy and feeling like UFOs.

New Year, New project

Having felt too unwell to knit over Christmas, I finally picked my needles up again on Friday. Whilst I did technically start this project in November, swatching and knitting the back edging, I left it there since:

  1. I needed to finish Lovely Husband’s Christmas sweater.
  2. Lovely Husband’s Christmas sweater was on the needles I wanted to use.
